    Seatpost slipping on Ibex Super Iggy

    I have an '09 Ibex Super Iggy which has been my main steed on the fun and technical trails of upstate NY. Recently I've been having a lot of issues with the seatpost slipping down a good inch or so during the ride. I currently have a Salsa collar on. I've greased the post, and tightened the collar as much as I dare, but it still slips. Any suggestions?

    Ha ha ha! Great post, Mini! So, ordered a Woodman post - I should have thought of that one - I have one on my Misfit Dissent. Got a Salsa Lip Lock collar, too. Hopefully this will be a better combination for me and I won't have to keep adjusting during the ride. So annoying!
    Yeah, trails have been awesome here in Ithaca - definitely can't complain!

    Good question, LOL! So, I got the Woodman post and the Salsa Lip Lock collar. Problem solved. Also, it appears that was what was also causing this annoying creak I kept getting...because she's blissfully silent. All I hear now is the sound of my wheezing climbing up our hills ;o)

    I also noticed the forum has gone missing.......however I think Ibex as a brand had already gone missing for a while now.....

    By the way.....I'm still rockin' the orange (re-designed) Ignition that the new owner sent me as a warranty replacement......but I have never seen it on the new Ibex website (which still sucks even after all the advice we gave him )

    That's too bad......tons of people compliment me on the frame when I'm out on the trails.....and when they ask how they can get one I have to tell them they can't.....

    Looks like it's the end of an error.

    Hi Ibexians. How are those cheap frames holding up?
