    Ibis Hakkalugi Disc

    Anyone have one yet. Was looking to order the frame and just looking for some feedback. I have worked on a number of Ibis MTB and seen a few broken so hoping the cross bike is tougher. Of course it is seeing lighter terrain than an SL-R.

    There are only two bikes I've considered buying for the last three years, the Cannondale Super X and the Lugi. I'm still thinking about upgrading my current bike or buying a new one. Maybe I should wait for hydraulics... anyway, the old Lugi got rave reviews. I'm sure the disc version is even better. One thing to consider is the Super X has a lifetime warranty, the Lugi has only three or five years.

    Here's a old thread from the sister site.

    Bump.
    Any owners with feedback on the new 'lugi here? Is the 2013 frame stiffer than previous years?

    Hakka Disc

    I just got one a few weeks ago. Having a lot of fun riding the local trails. No racing for me this year so can't say how it does in that regard. The only thing I can compare it too cross wise is an old ('95) Rock Lobster that I had. World of difference all the way around. Tubeless tires are great, disc brakes are nice, light weight is nice. The gearing is a little on the small side (36/28) for the adventures that I plan but it's nothing that can't be changed.

    Timbo,

    Did you buy just frame, rival build or Ultegra? Which size and what is the weight? I am just curious if the mid 17 lb figure is accurate for a 58 ultegra with the white paint version.

    Looks real good on paper, but I would really need to order sight unseen.

    As I understand it, the Ultegra build kit is actually a little less weight than the Rival.

    I am also curious if you plan to use the wheelset (Stans Iron Cross) with any road tires. I have been warned against this as the max psi is 45 and road tires should not be run tubeless. In my ideal world, this bike would make a great gravel road racing machine.. and then cross come winter. Seems like 2 wheelsets are likely needed though.

    Thanks

    Lots of companies are coming out with road tubeless tires now, so that shouldn't hold you back. I don't know anything about that max psi though. Seems like it would really limit that wheelset's functionality.

    I bought the full bike with Ultegra build black in a 53, I don't know the weight. I got it site unseen as it was a gift. However, Ibis is only 20 miles away so I probably could have swapped it out if it didn't fit. I have a couple road bikes (one that can run 28mm+ tires) so I don't see myself running road tire. However , I can see myself with 80+ psi in the tires if I'm riding on extended road sections during a ride... I hope I don't need to worry about the 45 psi. I put a Thompson layed back post on it and it feels great on the road. I also ride a Mojo-SL. Good luck

    The number of tubeless compatible affordable lightweight durable disc wheels is unfortunately small though. A couple of those adjectives are easy, but all of them together becomes problematic... at no real surprise.

    I've got Stan's ZTR Crest wheels and use regular (non-tubeless) tires, Serfas Vidas, pumped up to 80-90 or so. Any number of regular tires can be converted to tubeless.

    Anyone running a larger volume tire on the Lugi disc? Ibis says 38 (1.5") max for the rear, but tire measurements are pretty non standard.

    I'm running a conti cyclocross speed 35 tubeless, for gravel racing and it looks like there is pretty good mud clearance in back . The chainstays are the narrowest part of the bike and a 38 should fit fine. I don't think anything larger will fit in back without being too tight.
