    Jake the owner of Ibex bikes claims his frames are made in house but I've narrowed the manufacturer to these two companies.

    Are Ibex frames made by Pacific Cycles in Taiwan? (ala Schwinn, GT, Mongoos?) Can anyone confirm this?

    or

    ASTRO ENGINEERING CO., LTD. ?

That is merely marketing hype. Do a little research on metallurgy if you want to know what's what. Our Trophy Comp X7 uses triple-butted 6066. No hype, no BS. Just the facts.
