just been on the first outing with the IBIS, built slightly differently than previous post,. It rides really really well, very please with the build, the forks and stem will be sprayed to match the frame, so the red is only temporary but I still thinks it looks nice... the brakes were a bit of a surprise having been riding on discs for the last few years, the gears were spot on , and its the first time I have used Suntour XC pro running gear, and I have to say it preformed faultless ... your comments would be appreciated...

Good to see that is being used where it is made for. Great to learn it rides really well.

I don't know whether I would go for a colour matching Ibis stem. Paint on ti misses the essence of ti a bit. Could also imagine that instead a matching, a contrasting colour for the forks could be sweet. Only my 2cts, but you are asking for opinions. Interesting to see how what you plan turns out.

Are you running a self energizing brake at the rear??

The Stem is an alloy IBIS one, that will be sprayed up, and yes the rear brakes are the XC Pro SEs...with ceramic pads and mavic ceramic crossmaxs.. :wink:

Very nice :)

Just a thought but, you are using ceramic brake pads aren't you :?

Could have something to do with the braking issue

Oh yes!

That looks really good now. I would leave the forks red (2p).

Mud makes bikes look so much better in my opinion :lol:
