I just ordered an Ibex Section 29 today:D I also bought a shock pump and blingy hanger. I should have some other parts on the way soon too;) This will be not only my first Ibex but my first 29er and my first new bike as well.

Details and pics to follow:D I can't wait to rock the trails on my new bike!

Good choice! :thumbsup:

I have last year's Section 29, and am quite happy with it. It has stood up well to a hell of a pounding from my 260# azz and my inexperience (I have a tendency to pick crappy lines :rolleyes: :p ). You will not regret the purchase.

Now bring on the pr0n! :D

Woohoo! I recieved a tracking number already! Thank you Ibex for shipping the next day! The bad news I wont receive it until next Tuesday.

You know what grinds my gears: that these shipping companies purposefully slow down packages that will be in transit over a weekend. Fed Ex themselves claims that they can do ground shipping from Georgia to NorCal in 4 days. But those are "business days". So if a weekend happens to fall within that normal time frame, they slow it down so does take 4 "business days". For my shipment, 4 normal days would mean its delivered on Sunday. So why couldn't it be ready on Monday instead of Tuesday? Because they purposefully slow it down to match the exact wording of their promise which lets them save some effort and fuel costs at my expense. Bahh! UPS seems to be a bit better about this junk than Fed Ex.

I just ordered a Rampage for the front and a 185mm front brake, but my order wont even ship until Monday. This is really turning into a waiting game, lol

I got another goodie for my new and as-yet-unnamed bike as well. Jake will be proud;)

I ordered mine on a Tuesday evening and it arrived 8:30 AM Friday morning. Georgia to Maryland. Thing is I wasn't home & I stilll haven't figured out who signed for it. i have the persons name but never heard of them unless the FedEx driver signed himself.

State Line? Cool! Is your house one of the ones in both states, lol.

I grew up in Bel Air. I am very sad that I never started riding till I moved to CA because I am sure I missed out on some good riding in the MD/PA area
