Ibex B Series Frame Build Up-Complete

A while back I mentioned that Ibex Bikes sent us a B Series frame to do a build up. Well here it is!

I started off with Hayes Mechanical MX3 Brakes.

Hayes MX3

Shimano Deore hubs with Alex DMR rims, SRAM 9speed cassette.

Shimano Deore Rapid Fire Shifter and Brake lever combination. Bontrager dual density grips. WTB PURE V seat. You can see that I used a TruVativ Blaze crank set and sweetened it with some Shimano 505 SPD pedals.

Ibex provided us an FSA headset. I topped it off with a Bontrager carbon fiber spacer just for kicks.

Here’s the good stuff. Shimano XTR rear and front derailleurs.


Yes those are the Sweetskinz Nightwing tires. I also used a Marzocchi MZ Comp 100mm fork.

Tada! Here’s the finished product!

I’d like to thank Jack at Ibex Bikes for providing us the B-Frame to create our first project on the site.
