Was it the tasteful shape, or the iconic names that quickly popularized the 2005 Ibis Mojo In actuality, it was much more than swoopy lines and the resurrection of a respected, but bankrupt, brand. And like this Mojo HDR 650b/SRAM X01 Complete Bike, that bike pushed standards using advanced materials and designs to bring the mountain bike into the modern era. That's why it was such a success. And to keep that "mojo" going, Ibis' latest heavy-duty version sheds about half-a-pound from its bones, gains ISCG05 chain guide compatibility, and adds 27.5-inch rubber to the party. This means that you'll find the same DW Link suspension design, that relies on parallel links to generate 130mm of plush, yet firm travel. If that sounds like a paradox, it isn't. Dave Weagle is the designer of DW Link, and he has a history of building some of the best performing suspension bikes on the planet. What that means is that the HDR's suspension provides anti-squat properties that are naturally resistant to rider input. Because of that, it allows for a lighter compression tune in the FOX FLOAT CTD rear shock, and a bike that's firm on the pedals yet incredibly smooth through the rough stuff. Like its predecessor, tying that shock to a 140mm-travel FOX 34 FLOAT CTD fork is a carbon fiber structure. But now it's a half-pound lighter, while also retaining the strength that made the HDR a favorite among aggressive riders. Ibis accomplished this by continually refining its production techniques and carbon layup. At the rear of the Mojo HDR, Ibis uses a 12x142mm Maxle quick-release thru-axle. The wheels you'll find occupying this HDR's SRAM X01 build are Speed Tuned XM hubs laced to NoTubes ZTR Flow EX rims. This means its 2.3in-wide Pacenti Neo-Moto tires will balloon to their full traction-enhancing potential. Spinning the rear wheel is a SRAM X01 drivetrain with a 10-42t cassette, and a 32t front chainring that's on e.thirteen's TRS crankset. To provide reassurance when exploring ...
