    Both great deals

    Pros and cons on both bikes. I like the fork and shock on the IH over the fork on the Ibex. I'd take the Juicy 5 brakes on the Ibex over the Hayes on the IH. The IH sports a patented DW link suspension, while the Ibex has the simplified single pivot design. The drivetrains, while similar are slightly different. The shifters and rear derailleur on the IH are '06 models, on the Ibex, they are '07. The '07 SRAM X.7 series gear has the advantage because it is basically sharing the same architecture of the '06 SRAM X.9 series components, which are superior to the X.7. While I have never ridden the IH, I happen to own an Ibex Atlas Expert and it is an excellent bike. My guess is that you can't go wrong with either. Look at teh differences yourself and make your decision on what overall package you think makes sense for you.
