    Thinking to pull the switch on a ibis?

    Any thoughts, I have not yet even rode one. i have watched a lot of videos of these bikes and they seem to be insanely smooth and play fool just by watching them! I just wanna feel safe jumping some and plowing down a rocky DH and not bouncing like i do with my FATTY

    If your current rig is a fatty, any trail bike is likely an improvement for those kind of descents.

    Be wary of videos; however, that being said, my last bike was purchased and I did not have a chance to throw a leg over it before taking it home as they had to bring the bike in at the start of this stuff

    Thank you for not pulling the trigger.
