    Ibex ignition SE vs. Giant yukon fx?

    I have found the ibex ignition SE 2007.5 for 900 online and the giant yukon fx for 850 at a bike shop. This will be my first bike and it will be used mainly for exercise on road and moderately rough trails. Which is the best bike for the buck? Thanks

    You would be hard pressed to do better than the Ibex as far as specs are concerned. However, being that this will be your first bike, you may feel more comfortable working with your LBS on account of their ability to fit the bike exactly to your needs.

    I agree. Best bang for the buck is definitely Ibex, but it's online so you do not have anyone to tune up the bike for you. You need to be willing to learn how to do minor tune ups to get it. Or you can order it and bring it to the LBS to assemble it for you.

    Ibex has a sweet frame with awesome components for excellent price. The assembly is basics that you should know for standard repairs. Things like remove & replace wheels, install seat post & so on. Buying from a shop they offer a lifetime tune up but they dont tell you these are the normal things such as tire pressure & cable adjustment, anything else is retail. Also they dont drop there tools to work on your bike because your there.

    get the Ibex for sure. They make awesome bikes. Period... Plus most of the time, the tuneups offered by LBS you should be able to do yourself anyways...
