I've been riding an Ibex Ignition 2 since last year and its been a great bike... Just recently I started getting into doing some agresive riding instead of just riding on paved roads. The bike has been great for just riding around. However doing some small drop offs of about 3 or 4 feet it seems like the rear shock is really lacking (DNM DV-22). I saw a Cane Creek AD-5 for 45.00 and picked it up.. great deal but unfortunatly it doesnt fit the frame. The mounting holes are recesed and the shock runs into the outer edge of the frame before it reches the mounting holes. On another note I'm planing on upgrading the fork sometime soon too, its not terible, but it definatly isn't that great (Judy TT)... So I'm left with the option of either sticking with the bike and getting a rear shock that will work, or maybe looking into a new bike. I'm on a rather limited budget and not sure what to do... can anyone help me out?
