    Ignition Super vs. Ignition-3?

    So...title says it all. The Ibex representative over the phone said I should expect my Ignition-3 to arrive mid-March, BUT...

    I got a lot more from this year's tax return than expected, plus another kickback from elsewhere, so I could bump up to the Ignition Super if I wanted to. Assuming I can change my order, would it be worthwhile?

    YES, it would be worth it.


    I am thinking I speak on behalf of 99% here.

    Idea!

    What is your weight? If you are more on the Clyde side then get the Super- that's what made the choice for me. The BB is burly and can handle more abuse, plus the BB7 brakes have great reviews.
    That being said- I love my girlfriends Iggy 2 also- if I wasn't such a fat @ss then I'd probably be perfectly happy with it for only $699- well $649

    I'm a bean pole at 160 lbs...but comparing reviews between the 2 rear shocks, the difference seems substantial enough. And I read the outboard bearings for the bottom bracket are more durable.

    I'm a little more partial to the Shimano shifters, but ah whatever...

    Not a lot of love out there for the Super's seat post, but I couldn't find anything on the Uno. The seats seem about evenly matched. I couldn't find any info on the Uno branded stuff.

    D'oh...just realized this same question is already in the forums. Wish I'd found it beforehand.

    between the RS Bar and the Manitou Radium RL, i'll take the Manitou anyday. As for outboard bearings and such, yea, i've worn out ISIS BBs pretty fast. My Howitzer Team BB on my Zones are still running...

    I WAS a Shimano guy too but after getting my Iggy Super, i converted immedietely. The thumb trigger shifters just felt way more natural to me... I dont know why and cant explain it. I just love it... Dont know too much about how well they shift though. Never really paid attention to them. The X7 shifts as good as my 05 XT i'll tell ya that...

    The Truvativ XR series are alright. They're strong enough. Not too sure about the Uno stuff either. But i think the Iggy Super comes with Truvativ XR stem and Team OS bars no?
