A Ibis is a beautiful bird but as a bike it is not convincing. ...and it's a pity that many dont know this fact.
Without pulling the thread way OT can you expand on that statement?
Actually the statement is complete and needs no further explanation, it relates in general to the Ibis brand.
Ibis was and is certainly one of the best touring bikes but compared with some mountain bikes showed in this BOTM is far behind (I mean the riding characteristics). That's why the brand has not managed to be at the top.
So what is crucial hier?
Components? I can't see anything particularly or spectacular bit on it.
Or is it the original paint job? never understood what is supposed to be special at this paint job?
But I know it's built with passion and well staged, therefore deserved to win.Congratulations to you Huelse
...and I am sure we will see more beautiful bikes of you.
And many thanks to all who have given vote to my Yo eddy.
Now I am looking forward to building an exceptional Yeti F.R.O.
