(6/25/10: Ready my Ibis Mojo HD Review)
I saw the Mojo HD in person while at Interbike last Fall and as a Mojo owner, I’m stoked on the longer-travel design. While I’ve yet to feel like I’m bottoming-out my Mojo, an extra bit of plush with the same efficiency sounds sublime. And, the frame continues to be as sexy as all get-out. Head on over the Ibis Web site for more details about the new Mojo HD.

I still think it’s strange they didn’t put ISCG tabs on it. I understand their reasoning but I feel that this will be a deal breaker with some. Can’t please everyone I guess.
Yeah, if I could pick out one thing, that would be it. But, if you read the HD page on their site, they explain why. The DW-Link does present some challenges and this one appears to be one of them (at least in Ibis’s version of the DW).
Still looks like an awesome bike!
Will you be doing a review of the HD?
I’m hopeful that I can get aboard one between now and Interbike in September, but we’ll have to see. Stay tuned.
My review of the Mojo HD just went live:
I swung a leg over it yesterday for a few hours and I like it a lot. It’s quite a big rig, so if that’s your thing, the HD won’t disappoint!
