Oh man, that near made me *** in my pants, sorry but had to say t.....

Stunning for sure... I still think I did the right thing in getting a standard ION ST for now. I think all the kinks will have been ironed out (excuse the pun). Karl said it would have been cool to get one if I was in Europe, but not in New Zealand....

So cyril, who do these bikes belong to? are they yours?

They look stunning.... Enjoy whom evers they are....

Yes there is one for me (psycho turquoise) and one for a customer (orange one)

I wait for them for a long time and i receive them yesterday and i'm very exciting to build them.

rear wheel is not finish (i have not the good spokes), and gboxx cable must be shortered, but thuesday i will finish and test it, but rear supension seems to work perfecly.

in fact it's the first production of ion gb2 the 08 run only as a prototype, and this one is more like a 2010 model.

cyril, you are butchering my mind! please don't post anymore pictures of these terrific bikes! I'm not sure I'll be able to wait after my wife authorization before order one and in this case, I'm sure she will kill me!

because its now a horst link system and not a single pivot system anymore?
Why would a horst link Gboxx bike with built in chain tensioner need a derailer hanger again?
The dropouts are probably borrowed from another bike, seeing how it is still a prototype.

I can't do that! my bikes can't hold the comparison with the karl's one! but you can look at them on the all-mountain forum, into the hardtails topic ;)
to come back on the real subject of this topic: :madman: I NEED one!!!
