All about the great ride!!!!!

I am not affliliated with any bike Co. I ride the dirt freestyle on a Specialized Hemi to the Dura ace pavement pounding road warrior. I've got to say I just bought an IBEX 5600 Classic for $699, for a commutor bike, I thought. 105's all around, it came in with pedals at 20 lbs. The front and rear D's were so far out of tune I couldn't turn the cranks over! After a tuning from the experts at Cyclepath in Hayward CA, the bike was flawless! Took it for a century ride the second day I owned it and learned that this thing was a rocket. The Carbon forks and seat post made for a great ride. Throw the saddle away, it was the sh&ts, put on my Fav, a Sp. B&G, and the preformance stood out. The guys at IBEX were first class, I spent an hour on the phone with them to try and dial in my D's but I have no expertise and couldn't do it, though they were very helpful and patient. Even though the sight said it was blue it is definitely purple. 3 feet into the door of the LBS I was getting comments on how awseome the bike looked!-Steve,
