Ok I know I'm throwing more than one bike on yall tonight but I'm finding them pretty good here lately. This one is a Ibex Ignition. A 2009 model at that. From the reviews that I have read on this bike it seems like its a good deal. What price range am I looking at? Dont want to pay to much for it.

I'm assuming you are buying this bike used? Because as was mentioned, you can't get it from Ibex anymore...

I own an 09 Ignition, list the parts on it I'll give you an idea what I would pay for it......


The frame is actually not worth that much......Ibex was blowing them out for $300 right before they closed up shop......

This bike brand new was about $1000............if it was in mint condition I would offer no more than $725 for it.......my starting offering price would probably be around $625......

If the bike is not in mint condition (scratches etc.) I probably would not give more than $650 for it and would offer $500 to start......

Also fyi, this bike has a minor flaw......the front derailleur will sometimes ding the chain-stay when you bottom out the shock.....look for nicks and/or chipped paint on the chainstay just below the dereailler....

the bike is still ridable.....i haven't heard of the bike or derailleur breaking because of this....but I would mention it to the seller inorder to get the price down....

Other than that, the bike is great.....I'm pretty happy with mine....the bike is pretty solid and can take jumps and pretty harsh treatment really well..
