Ibis Is Making Its New Carbon XC Bike in CaliforniaIbis, based near Santa Cruz, California, has experimented with making bikes in their own California factory before, with a single size (small) Ripley frame they cranked out a few years ago. Now, they’re all in with a brand new bike, the Exie (get it?) The Ibis factory, in Pajaro, a “town” in the Santa Cruz mountains, is powered by solar energy, lowering the bike’s carbon impact even further. Ibis decided to come at manufacturing from the most cost effective ways they could to trim labor times as best as possible. That’s just what it takes to get a bike like this built in these parts.
