    New prices.

    Today I saw the new prices of just a few frames at the Ibis website, not much only $ 200, really, with their excellent customer service the price is irrelevant .

    I know every ones raising the price of frames, but I hope Ibis can keep theirs cheaper than the rest. This was the main reason I went to ibis, because of their lower pricing. I didnt want to feed into the high price tags. Seems by next year carbon frames are going to be over $3,000 a pop....

    As long as we continue to buy more and more expensive frame, their producers will continue to steadily increase their prices...

    (Cha-ching!) The consumer/market largely dictates the price increase (ie $3k for SB-c frame (crazy, as someone I know sheared a head tube on one the other weekend while practicing for an Enduro race) and $4k for S-Works Enduro, even crazier. I just dread the notion that most/all frames will be around and over $3k with no major improvements in quality (all develop some problems sooner or later after hard use, in my experiences at least).
    Ride On!
