For non-members of MTBR:
I quite like it personally.
oh sorry does it not show to non members? and thanks
No need for those rims. No need at all. The frame colour is bad ass though.
I'm with Tails on this one.
I've seen a couple of Ibis' in the Flesh, and especially liked the naked carbon one. In "primer grey" it just looks crap!
And even worse with those horrid Crank Bros wheels.
Put together by a true amateur as well, just look at those brake hoses
Im not sure if i love it or hate it....so conflicted.
aye, those brakes are obviously based on the snag-wire principle found on aircraft carriers...effective at stopping you though i guess!
more seriously, not sure about the grey either i'm afraid. admittedly, undeniably a nicer bike than mine.
Ugly tree, from the top, every branch. Then the ugly ambulance to ugly hospital.
Never ridden one but I hear they're very sweet. Then some muppet does that to it. It's vile.
Why did anyone think that colour would be good?
Either natural carbon weave or a glossy bold colour like blue or red maybe.
The seat post is the wrong colour and those wheels are hideous! Other than that its ok.
Does the Action man doll come with it or do you have to but that seperately?
that's one huge hunk of uglyness
some bikes just look wrong in small sizes...
Sling some other blue trinkets (some bolts etc) on it and it would come out fine!
It does need a black seatpin though
You know, I like them Ibis things. And you know why? Cos they look like nothing else.
But that colour scheme has to look better in the flesh. Surely.
I'd like to think that it doesn't matter - but deep down i know it does - if I didn't like the look of my bike i wouldn't feel as confident on it - and i'm not very confident in the first place
but i guess whoever put that together had enough money to choose petty much any kit they wanted so they must like it.
I can sort of see the logic. Grey and blue usually work together as colours, the "titanium" colour Fox fork is close to grey, etc.
But it just hasn't worked.
I really like the frame, the colours, the rims arent bad (seen worse, in flouro green, on here) and forks dont have to match the frame. You big bunch of jefties, get over yourselves
I did find the snagwire quite fun.
Like the frame... always fancied one of those... like the colour too!
Build looks pretty good spec whys. Brake hoses could be tidier, but looks like they've got a routing issue coz they run front brake on the left (the correct way!!!).
Never been convinced by those wheels though.
Clearly an expensive build, sure it rides lovely too.
