    Ibis random spotting!

    It's so cool that these bikes are unique enough that an unexpected sighting can come as a surprise! Some places (like where I live) they are just plain hard to come by as there are no Ibis dealers and hardly anyone knows about anything other than the big 3 (or 5 or 6?) manufacturers. I have personally seen a single lime-green Mojo C in the local area and once saw a Mojo SL for sale on the local forums. Thats it!

    But even if I lived somewhere more populated by Ibisians, I would still get a bit excited. I guess we are just nerds, eh?

    That blue bike - was that a Ripley? From that angle, its wheels do not look like 29". Is Ibis secretly testing new designs away from the spotlight?

    Ha, not sure if you're taking the piss which is cool, but it is definitely a Ripley, wheels look big to me in that pic but maybe since I was up close and personal it is more obvious to me haha, really is a sick looking and unique in a great way, stunning looking bike.

    Doubt Hans and the boys would be doing secret testing here, be amazing, I would welcome them and it if they are keen, we definitely have the variety to test anything to its limits and then some and have a great time on great trails, many just 5mins from town thats pretty good when testing, aye Ibis crew yeah hint hint lol

    @ conekilr I agree its another nice attribute to Ibis, great for them to sell massive stock units but great for us not to have a mainstream every second bike like a Giant or Specialised nothing wrong with that they make some great bikes, but if we wanted those we would be on one not on an Ibis and the good thing its not a status thing or look at me they're are plenty of high end brands to keep everyone happy and unique enough, must admit I do enjoy meeting all riders no matter what they ride, but especially meeting another Ibis rider or riders so cool

    When I drove past with my HD on my truck I had to go around the block and come back probably looked a bit stalkerish lol, but just had to be done, they looked so good parked in the street, Im a bit of a ute we call them here Truck man as well so always looking at others rack setups trucks etc, almost as good as bikes almost!

    Canuk that would made the drive good fun!

    You Cali's have it so good, haha
