That's both an absolute steal for someone, and a fair price for the seller. If it were an XL I might have had to push the price up some more! It seems that in paying £411 for my Hakkalugi I paid the most out of all the Ibis frames that have been on eBay recently. That's interesting, because it's a large frame for a niche sort of riding, but on the other hand there's been fewer technology changes for 'cross bikes compared to mountain bikes - discs still aren't race legal, and there's no obsession with suspension :-)

Err.... that's what I thought, I said to myself "I can't let it go for that amount"..... hmm..got a little carried away and bought the bugger! :shock: Heh, I'm only saying bugger because I've just shelled out for a new car this month and this cropped up at the wrong time for me.

Still...

Lovely frame innit?

was watching carefully too...

I would be pleased at £290 for it. Very nice new frame for budget frame cash.
Good buy!!

Ha! No, the car won't be for sale (yet) Melvin! :wink:

It may be a while before I get it built up though, don't think it'll be built in time for the retro-ride! :(
