    Ibis (and SC, Yeti) and other carbon frame bike companies only offer 2 year Warranty on their carbon frames. If I spend that much cash, I want a 5 year or Limited Life Time coverage.

    If you're going strictly off the ibis published warranty, you must not post here often.

    Seems pretty lifetime to me. And even if you drive your ibis into your garage, the crash replacement pricing is insanely cheap.

    Ibis has a three year warranty.

    Great review. My favorite part was the author's name:

    Richard Cunningham( formerly of MBA)

    It's good to see he is writing again.

    Per Ibis:

    Warranty | Support | Ibis Cycles US

    Ibis Cycles warrants Ibis frames to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 3 years from date of sale. This limited warranty applies to the original owner and is nontransferable. Ibis will, at its sole discretion, repair or replace any frame or component that it determines to be defective.
    The warranty was a major driver behind me buying an Ibis over another Turner (who only offers 2 years on their frames).

    It appears that Ibis markets the HD as a "crossover", XC and/or AM, to gain more sales appeal to XC riders moving up in travel, as well as to longer travel bike riders looking for a lighter and more durable heavy-duty AM bike. The XC side of the market is probably much larger.

    Or it could be that Ibis really wants riders using a 32T to match the intended antisquat characteristics. Problem is, for my terrain a 42T is useless and a 32T spins out far too fast. Strictly for gearing, I was much happier with a 36T.

    Fun local trail in San Diego

    The rider is Harold Preston of imountainbiketrails.com
    He has some fun video's posted on his website.
    Awesome guy, has some great skills, and does his best to inspire and encourage others.

    Too bad about the narrow bar and long stem combo, tires, etc. (gave him a lot of sh*t about it).......BUT, it is not a bad strategy for them to demonstrate to the riders that want to upscale their short travel bikes to longer travel, and show them how nimble and fast a HD160mm (which in their mind is a AM/downhill bike). That bike set-up on a demo makes potential short-travel buyers feel safer making the switch, and maybe they represent a large target group for HD sales?
