Shimano's XT line has always been a noble workhorse that's also able to pull double-duty in a steeplechase, which happens to be a picture-perfect match for this Ibis Mojo HDR 650b complete mountain bike. A modern interpretation of the mountain bike, the latest Ibis is ready to tackle tough lines, yet it's light enough for competitive use. In fact, 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.

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 accompanying this HDR's Shimano XT build are Ibis Speed Tuned XM hubs laced to NoTubes ZTR Flow EX rims. This means that its 2. 3in-wide Pacenti Neo-Moto tires will balloon to their full traction-enhancing potential. Spinning the rear wheel is a Shimano XT drivetrain with an 11-36t cassette and e. thirteen's TRS crankset that's supporting 24/34t chainrings and a bash guard. To provide reassurance when exploring the HDR 650b's limits, Shimano XT bra...
