Ibex X-Ray Build Part III

by Moe

Ibex X-ray
I’ve finally finished building the X-ray! I was waiting for the Dia Compe brake levers to arrive, a ‘mishap’ happened that delayed the arrival of the levers by 3 weeks.

44 tooth front ring

I also opted to install a crank with a 44 tooth ring and Crank Brothers Egg Beater Chrome pedals.

rear purple anodized cantilever brakes.

Seatpost

To compliment the bike, I installed a carbon fiber seatpost for a more comfortable ride, and a WTB Rocket V Special Edition seat with yellow accents.

Stay tuned for the review of this bike. Can this bike be my ultimate commuter???

    I’ve heard one person swear by the egg beaters, and another swear at them (that they are too small.) I gather you chose them over, say Look or Ultegra…but why?
