    What's the big deal? Just another carbon frame with post mounts and fancy paint job.

    Nobody said it was a big deal. Consider it an updated frame.

    Pretty cool for Ibis fans looking for a cross bike with disc brakes. Not a revolutionary new design, but sweet looking bike.

    You're on the Ibis forum, not the cnn.com homepage


    It's one sweet looking cross bike. Makes a nice all round road/cross/commuter/do anything bike now. And if it rides anything like the old one, it's a smooth ripper too. Danny Summerhill rode it to 4th yesterday at the USGP. All top four placers in the Elite men race had discs. Powers, Trebon, Bergen, Summerhill.

    Funny I watched the UCI Superprestige race in Belgium online last week, not a single euro was on discs. Could be that it was a dry course, but I'm guessing the euros are going to be slower to get on discs than the US guys.

    I actually said "Oh my God" when I saw it on bikerumor a minute ago. There's only two cross bikes I'd consider buying, the Cannondale Super X and this.

    I'm guessing "funnyjr", who said "what's the big deal?", has never ridden a hakkalugi, doesn't race cross bikes, and probably doesn't enjoy riding endless miles of dirt/rough roads. I could be wrong, so I apologize if I upset him, but for those of us who have done one of the above, then I can imagine you're probably as excited as I am for this bike!

    Anyone want to buy a used Yeti ArcX?

    Saw them at the USGP this weekend stationed at the Feedback Sports tent. Gorgeous and I want one...but I will wait until hydraulic disc option is there. Mechanical is too heavy and just not that much better feeling than a nicely tuned canti.

    BTW Summerhill was ripping the corners at the USGP faster than anyone else. It was seriously impressive.

    Oh and discs are happening here at races in the US first because we are just better marketers here in the US than in Europe.

    Just yesterday while 30 minutes into my second race of the season with my Foundry Auger Disc, I snapped the brake side seat stay. At 6'4" and 230 lbs., I tend to find the limitations of more bike frames/equipment than I care to mention.

    My 61cm Hakkalugi disc is on it's way and I should have my components swapped off the Foundry in less than a week. I'm certain the Ibis will be much more durable.

    You should get another Foundry frame as a warranty replacement right?

    Yes. I'm beginning that process now. I'll be getting the Hakka disc for my CX bike and I really don't need any other bike frames. I'm hoping to get the Foundry HT 29er mtb frame or their road bike frame as replacement as my daughter could use a new bike or two for her stable.

    The Hakkalügi Disc isn't designed as a light touring bike, so no rack mounts. There is clearance for fenders, even with some pretty big tires.
    Fenders can be put on quite effectively with quick release mounting systems, there are some pretty slick options from Crud and SKS:

    Wonder how big of a tire you can fit in the back? Looks like good clearance on the seat stays but i can't tell on the chain stays and ft. der cable.

    The Ibis site says a 38C with good size knobs will fit.
