Is Ibis love a virulent disease, or should I get a kickback from Ibis?
Have any of you experienced this?
Since I got my first ibis in 2008, every one of my good friends who has bought a new bike has bought... an ibis.
I try to restrain myself from frothing at the mouth about how amazing the bikes are, I really do. I probably fail. And I can't honestly pretend to take the credit - these men make their own decisions. But really - 100%? OK, small sample size, but that is still statistically significant, right?
me: Mojo in 2008
e: Mojo in 2009
me: HD in 2011 (a surprise birthday present from, in part, a bunch of these guys, so maybe that counts as well?)
z: SLR in 2012
s: SLR in 2012
ea: Mojo HD in 2012

Reason: add picture of the original green mojo
Haha, I also have this missionary attitude. Only a few days ago a friend of mine indicated some interest in an HD. So I offered him to try fit and feel of my bike on the parking lot and to ride together as soon as the weather allows. - While we were talking I realized I sounded like an Ibis salesman or as if I could hope for commission or something. I asked myself why, since I don't have any benefit if he decided for an HD instead of whatever else. But I freaking LOVE this bike! Spread the Ibis evangelism :-)
The check is in the mail ; )
And the legendary customer service continues.

I have directly sold six HDs plus mine. By sold I mean I literally talked them into it and then drove them to the shop so they could buy them. I have also indirectly sold a few as well. I am an Ibis missionary.
You can take the sales guy out of the bike shop but you can't take the bike shop out of the sales guy.
I try and discourage people from getting an
Ibis...esp an HD.
That way I stay faster
I went from Zero Ibis to three in the last 18months
1)starter Mojo SL
2) wifeys SL
haha, exactly the same here, but I started in 2008! I'm working on convincing her she needs an HD.

We need to report this virus to CDC.

great bike and especially great customer service will make each of us great salesmen... smart way to do business.
My only grief is how expensive those bikes can get... had it not been for the special blend (which is very hidden) I would have never been able to convince those 3 to get them.
