Yay! The deluge of deliveries has returned. It’s Friday, it’s fresh and here’s the goods…

Ibis Hakkalügi Disc

Chipps cross

Weighing in under a claimed 1150g for even the largest size frame the Hakkalügi now comes with a model equipped for disc brakes (there’s still a canti version for you stick-in-the-muds). The carbon frame features 135mm dropouts so you can choose 29er wheelsets and spacing to allow a 38c tyre too. Pressfit BB and tapered headtube completes the modern spec and compliments the ENVE fork the frameset is equipped with.

Enve envy

Light, fast and lovely. Want!

    That Ibis is lush. Boo to the pressfit BB though.

    I use a Praxis PF converter on mine, works a treat.

    Very tempted by the X1, currently have the X2’s on the bar’s and they are fantastic! Could also do with a new spoon, shame I’m already a subscriber… 😉

    those Giro shoes look good and at a fairly reasonable price too esp as the Spesh BG Comps are now £100 and the BG Sports are £75.

    Busy totting up the value of my unnecessary organs/limbs I own that will generate the £1649.99 required for that Ibis frame. Bloody sexy

    “stems are available in 30mm”
    Does the bar almost sit against the steerer tube then? (0.325-0.4mm gap?)

    Probably a daft question, but would the General Lee cogs work with a Shimano cassette? Not that I can afford £100-odd for them!

    Hmm, i have all the bits I need for a cross bike. Except frame. And forks. If you’re tight for space and need someone to look after that Ibis…

    “you can choose which length you want accurately. Do you want them in Rachel, Dan or Gee?”

    Moderated: Inappropriate comment removed

    Everybody was thinking it, Northwind said it. Genius

    I guess the bars are all Al at that price? What are their weights?

    But will you need a XX1 rear mech to clear the 40 tooth sprocket? If so you’d still be looking at close to £500 for the mech and converter sprockets, though I suppose cheaper than whatever a full XX1 drivetrain would cost.

    £22 for 500g of fancy milk shake? You can fool all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. Sports potions purveyors are like a mini version of the pharmaceutical industry, ie having a great big laugh, most if not all of the time. Do yourselves a favour, eat some proper food.

    @speaker2animals – The makers of the General Lee say that the Cassette will work with a normal Sram rear mech with some B screw adjustment, and Shimano rear mech – but not Shimano Cassettes ,I’m currently getting more info with the power of Google translate , which we’ll add to the story as it comes in ;]
