I'm considering buying one with an Ultegra kit but would like to hear more reviews. Please give me some feedback...good or bad.

Thanks!

No experience with it but I've read lots of reviews. They say it's soft and heavy. Nice do everything bike but not good for racing.

Man... with SRAM Force being the same price and having real cx gearing, I'd really be inclined to go that route!!

Yeah, unless you know the writer giving the review and his/her preferences they're not really that helpful. Some people love a stiff bike, some people hate it. I'm sure the Lugi is a nice bike. If the OP buys it us give us a review.

Yes, Barbara won my race at Nats. At least I didn't get lapped :) I'm ordering this bike tomorrow and will post a review as soon as I can.

I have one. It's a nice bike. It's nice and light. I don't LOVE the brakes, but they are good (you can toe them in, but you need to see how on the Euro-X site).

The only thing I didn't love is the saddle. It's not bad, but that's a preference thing versus quality.

Newly built Hakkalugi

Just built up a new Ibis Hakkalugi three weeks ago, only the second one to land in New Zealand. I purchased just the frame and fork, because I would have ended up ditching half the parts and components supplied on the complete bike, especially their choice crankset.



I found the frame fairly light, but it is a 47cm. The Hakkalugi has been built up with Ultegra 6700 componentry (derailleurs/shifters/cassette/hubs), handbuilt Ambrosio Evolution wheels, Raceface Cadence CX 36/48T crankset (with Dura-Ace BB), Deda seatpost, stem, handlebars and TRP CX9 V-brakes. Also purchased 34T, 46T and 50T chainrings, to use when required.



The TRP CX9 V-brakes are fantastic for on and off road use and do not require any adapters to work with STI levers. Hit some mountain bike trails last weekend, there is pretty of mud clearance and they pull up well - just like a road caliper. All the TRP's hardware is titanium.



I use the Hakkalugi for road training as well, now I can take on some shingle farm roads for a change of scenery.

Cyclo-cross isn't that popular yet in New Zealand, but is starting to get a following - had NZ Nationals a couple of weeks ago for the second time.
As a result cyclo-cross specific componentry, parts and tyres are had to come by at the moment. A few bits and pieces had to be ordered from overseas, ie. TRP V-brakes were ordered from the U.S.
