    S-works stumpy FSR vs IBIS WTF

    Any advice before I spend big $$$ ? Two top shelf ultra high end light weight monsters . IBIS WTF better equipt and lighter (21.9 lbs ) and $1000 less plus 5.5'' of travel. Spech better warranty wonderful local service. Why choose our beloved FSR this time ?

    Have you test ridden both? Even a lower-spec'd version will give you a feel of how different those bikes are ... and while I haven't ridden the ibis, it sure looks like a pretty different beast from the SJ.

    To be honest, I wouldn't consider a super-high end SJ. Weight is not all that matters (in fact, except in the wheels and maybe the drivetrain, weight matters not at all). I think an SJ is a great bike at the lower end and in the middle with great components, but at your price range I would look seriously at Ellsworth, Turner, and the like (perhaps Ibis too, which as I said I don't know, and maybe Santa Cruz).

    I would definitely go with Ibis, in fact I intend to buy a mojo frame next month. I love my stumpjumper but I love everything about mojo it looks amazing. Its everything I could ever want in a bike. In almost 70 reviews it gets 4.97 average chillis, which cant be bad. If you want that something special Ibis is the way to go

    Just my opinion but i will hopefully be joining the Ibis club soon
