Ibis Mojo HD

Recommended Posts

I'm fortunate enough to be in the process of building a new Ibis Mojo HD. For those of you who haven't heard or seen, have a look here: http://www.ibiscycle...ountain/mojohd/

 

Admittedly up to now I haven't held on to a bike for too long. I like riding all sorts of bikes - live and learn they say. But I am tired of my ways and have decided to buy a bike that I will hang on to for as long as it and me will/can keep going.

 

That in turn motivated me to grace it with parts that I won't feel need upgrading any time soon. Obviously as far as budget allows!

 

The brief for the frame was easy: light but stiff and strong, 6" travel, 12mm maxle rear axle and at least 67 degree HA. Now there at lots of bikes that foot most of the bill, but the light is the problem. So I was over the moon when Ibis finally announced the release of their 160mm beast. Under 3k's for a large frame (medium should be around 2.9 with shock), 67 Degree HA, 160mm of DW-goodness, maxle...it's all there.

 

Anyway I'm making a longer story than Bos! Most of the parts have been ordered and are either on their way or waiting in the shed for the frame to arrive. Like my fellow HD addict (http://www.thehubsa.....asp?TID=80878) I have decided to get the thread going for the simple reason that I cannot wait any longer!

 

My name is Iwan and I am an Ibis bike porn addict. So here we go...

I'm a roadie but I think an IBIS frame looks awesome.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
