    Ended up getting a Cannondale M400 instead for even cheaper. Also picked up a guitar. :cool:

    I bought this one because it's plenty good enough and was cheaper, but if I'd known how cheap I was going to get the guitar I would have bought the yellow one. I got this one from a guy at a bike shop so I know it's in good condition. I rode it around downtown for a test run and was pretty pleased.

    What a cool bike! Except for that stem. I had one of those briefly--2 lbs of virtual uselessness. I'd ditch it ASAP if that were my Ibis and just run a 2.5 front tire.

    Noe I'm tempted to go dig up my Fat Chance photos.

    Oh I LOVE that stem! If you have it adjusted right....

    Yea! Fat Chance! East coast styling!

    Stems not bad. I like it! It's lasted longer than any Rock Shocks from 1995!

    I've been shopping for an Ibis Mojo for years! I wish they'd make steel again!

    I ride the same way I ski, look for anything to jump or jib off of. My wife jokes I spend more time with skis or tires in the air than on the snow/dirt! I will admit the gap jumps in the first video are a bit gnarly since if you case it you will crash hard but the dirt jumps in the second one are all tabletops or step up/downs so you can land them on the deck with no issues.
