We used to say “Steel is real”. Now we say “Steel is real…heavy”.
Our virtual mechanic is pretty fast. He's also sometimes kind of lazy. He'll swap out frame colors and show you your drivetrain upgrades but he says it takes too long to change brakes and things. He's doing his best but please excuse any irregularities you may notice...
We also really, really recommend that you use the latest version of your favourite web browser. Definitely not IE7 or earlier. Basically, if things look weird here try upgrading your browser.

After too long away from the muddy racecourses, the Ibis Hakkalügi has returned in all of its throat-clearing phlegmatic glory. This time around a huge chunk of weight has been removed by making the frame out of carbon fiber. Combine the lightweight frame with Ibis’ classic cross geometry and you are definitely onto a winner. With features such as compression molded carbon dropouts, a carbon fiber seat tube insert and carbon head cups adding strength while dropping weight the ‘Lügi is ready for anything you throw at it.
We’ve subtracted a lot of weight by making the frame out of carbon fiber. For you purists out there, sorry. For you weight weenies out there, you’re welcome. We used to say “Steel is real”. Now we say “Steel is real…heavy”. Sorry, we love steel but we couldn't resist.
Geometry is classic cross. We've designed the frame around and mated it to a nice lightweight Enve (nee Edge) RFC-47 Cross fork.
Canti mounts are back AND so is the hand job cable stop, after a many year vacation from duty.
The ‘Lugi also features strong and svelte compression molded carbon dropouts not too unlike those found on the Silk SL.
A carbon fiber seat tube insert and some judicious carbon fiber layout ends up with this super strong frame weighing a little more than 1100g in a size 55 (they vary a bit from frame to frame).
We’re particularly excited about the way this thing looks, in both of its guises. The lion on the seat tube comes from the icon of the Flemish flag.
New for this year, the Hakkalügi now come in two 'colors'. One is flat black (or you could accurately call it matte clear). But to make it easier for all of us, we're calling it Black Lung. As for the other color, we’re pretty sure you know this, but the Flemish people (the Phlegms?) live in a region of Belgium called Flanders and they are known for their cycling prowess - especially for their success in cyclocross racing. So as an homage to that, the color of the frame is called Phlegmish Yellow.
