My little dude was so excited today when he got home and there was a little IBEX box sitting on the porch. I felt so bad that I was working late tonight and was postponing his build up, but we got it done only a little past bedtime! Chill mom, we got bike stuff to take care of.

I was imperssed with the pre-assembly. Only the front brake needed adjustment, tires pumped and two of the cables were crossed up on the bars. Easily fixed. I was also impressed with the componentry. All of the components are very nice with the exception of the pedals. One is very notchy and the other spins semi-freely.

We'll maybe get a trail ride/shakedown in this weekend if I can bum some cranks or steal the wife's bike. :D

Here are the pics

Not too shabby:cool:


It's Green! :eekster:








One happy camper:thumbsup:

Nice pics

Looks like one happy kid, and yes, tell mom to get her priorities straight!!

What was his reaction to the color? Looks more like Granny Smith Apple Green than mint, but hey, that's just my twisted POV.

I told him it was Grinch Green (stole the name from Ventana's green apple color). He said he would think about keeping it. :confused:

Too funny!

My guess is that once he's taken it out on the trails and had some fun, the color issue will go away. If not, you'ev got some wrenching to do and some $$ to spend on that promise of a powder coat...

That is very close to Grinch Green. Much nicer than I thought it would be.

Second only to Cosmic Orange in my book. Come on Fed EX!

Luckily there is a local PC shop that will do it for $40-50 if they have the color in stock.

Cosmic Orange??? :confused: for the Homers it is Gold Dust Orange :D

The green on the Ibex web page is not anywhere near being a true representation of the color.
