Ibex B-Series Frame

Fedex just dropped of our first project on MtnBikeRiders.com, a brand new B Series Frame from Ibex Bicycles. Though the B Series bike was discontinued for 07, but it will be back on 08, we liked the frame so much that we asked Mr. J of Ibex about building one. He even threw in an FSA headset!

Here are the specs of the frame:

Details:

Frame: 6061 Aluminum – Geometry designed for our Dual Sport models works equally well as a high-performance street cruiser, an trail oriented mountain bike… or both!

Included:

Kalloy Quick Release Seatpost Clamp
Derailleur Hanger, Touch-up Paint & Manual

Component Requirements
Fork: 1 & 1/8″ steerer tube – 70-100mm travel
Bottom-Bracket: 68mm (spidle length according to crankset)
Front Derailleur: 31.8mm clamp diameter (1 & 1/4″)
Seatpost: 27.2mm diameter (not included)
Brakes: Disc or V-brake

So stick around for the build up. We’re thinking of adding a TruVativ Blaze crank set, Shimano XTR in the front and rear derailleurs, Hayes MX2 Mechanical Disc Brakes, brakes levers/shifters, deore hubs, WTB Weirwolf tires, an Azonic handle bar, to top that off, we’re going to go with a Marzochhi MX Pro with ETA…its about 4 1/2 inches of travel baby!

A FreeRide/DH Bike for less than a thousand?

Today’s Tip

Bar End Basics – When installing bar ends, make sure that the fasteners and clamping area are placed in an unobtrusive fashion so your knees don’t contact them and get sliced and diced in a crash. It’s also a good idea to check them for tightness frequently, because if a bar end slips while you’re pulling hard, it can be disastrous.

Today’s Tip

Protect The Valve When Pumping – An important valve tip: they’re not indestructible. They’re at the most risk when you’re pumping up the tire using your frame-mounted pump. To protect the valve, always support it by holding the end of the pump that’s on the valve in such a way that you can hook a thumb or finger over the tire. That way, as you push to inflate the tire, you’re pushing against your hand and not the valve, which will bend or break if you push against it alone

Product Spotlight

This is the Fezzari Alta Peak. It was sent to us to test and review.

It’s spec’d out with some of the best names in the business such as Shimano, Truvativ, Rockshox, Maxxis and more.

I’ve taken out this bad boy on the local trails and so far so good. I love the fact that it has front and rear lockouts, which made my climbing so much easier. The 4 bar suspension cuts back on the pedal bob but it isn’t stiff at all on the downhill sections.
