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:
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!
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!
Do you own a handheld GPS?? If you do, well, you are in luck. We will be featuring a page where tracks of different trails can be downloaded and uploaded to your GPS. You no longer have to wait for that buddy of yours that is always late!!

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.
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
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.
