There wasn’t a whole lot of new stuff being released for Ibis this year. Some new colors for the bikes and the Mojo HD was on display.
The much anticipated Mojo HD is still in a prototype phase, so its unavailable for now, but at least we can see it and touch it. “See me, feel me, touch me, heal me.”
I spoke with Scott and he said that they had kept the bike under wraps for a long time before it was allowed to be seen. Sort of a Ibis secret Skunk Works project if you will. The had just painted Brian’s bike, so it looked a bit different than some of the earlier photos I had seen.
I commented on the gearing on the bike; which was obviously meant for going downhill; and Scott said Brian was able to keep up (and kill) with everyone on a group ride on XC terrain! He also said that Brian sets his derailleur to not go to the upper cog, since getting a chain sucked up over the top of the cassette isn’t to useful for racing.
