Super sexy

Yeah that Mondraker was the best thing I rode at the USNWC interbike thing. A real eye opener.

I have a Yeti 4.5. Love that thing. Came off of an Ibis Ripley, also a bike worth a look.

+2 The Mondraker Foxy is amazing.   

If Kona makes a Process 134 29er I may "trade up" my Process 153.  So that might be one to keep an eye out for as well.

Tangerine Sky blue Ibis RIPMO
haven't ridden one, yet
saw the blue one in person in a bike store and almost soiled my pants
my wife was with me and said my immediate lustful reaction wasn't "healthy", said i shouldn't touch "things" and moan like that in public

Ibis RIPMO in blue is the best looking bike on the planet right now.  Go see the boys at Lightning Cycles to order you one today.  Tell them Btalley sent ya, you may or may not get thrown out.

I just looked.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess, but whatever gets you going man!  Some people like Red bikes too but Red just makes me throw up in my mouth anytime I see a 2 wheel vehicle blemished in such a way.  To each their own

Not a Big S fan but that bike is sick... Mike... Colin here has the SWorks model if you ever wanted to throw a leg over it. Ya'll are the same size...

The Knolly Fugitive may be worth a look. The 4x linkage isnt the best climber put it smokes it down the hill.

Or maybe the new Commencal Meta29? 

Ton of options depending on how you wanna go.

Do what you like. Stop hating people for their riding habits and get back to hating them for their skin color, religion, politics, and sexual orientation.

2019 Stumpjumper Pro 29/6Fattie (or S-works because you're worth the extra $$)
  • Now uses standard shock instead of custom
  • Did I dream the Stumpjumper switched to a threaded BB?  If it still has that PF30 then I know this bike shop on NC115 near the Davidson/Cornelius line that can put in a threaded BB.
  • Did I dream part II the new frame can support up to 29 x 3.0 tires?  You can have 27.5+ and 29+ wheelsets because riding a tank down a trail is so much fun. 

The only bad part about recommending this bike is now I want one.

I used to be addicted to the Hokey Pokey but then I turned myself around.
