Making Friends with the Ibis Mojo HDR 650b
When William Saroyan described the bicycle as the noblest invention of humankind, I doubt he imagined the souped up carbon hotness we use to blast around the woods with a primary goal of increasing the serotonin and dopamine levels in our brains.
Ibis Cycles (IbisCycles.com) is releasing the Mojo HDR and they take a pretty big step in maintaining the Mojo as the most versatile mountain bike in the world. (*In my humble opinion.)
I don’t know the actual angles and numbers on the bike- Ibis will tell you today- but it is hands down the most versatile, wickedly fun, and fast bike I’ve been on. The level of engineering on this frame begs for components that match, and I went with what I describe as a strong & sexy build. My Mojo HDR came set up for 650b (27.5″) wheels and I’m rolling on the simply beautiful ENVE composites AM wheelset. Quite choice.
The Mojo HDR 650b is a cold blooded KOM killer. You’ll make your friends quit Strava. The noblest invention, indeed!

Hope Lock on Grips
Here’s an insight into the 100% UK manufacture of our new Lock on handlebar grips
Met a bunch of amazing Italian strangers in the northern region of Trentino, Italy who took me way up into the Italian alps to go hiking and mountain biking. People have been asking me to make a sports video, so thought it would be fun to try it out! A week of run and gun fun! I feel like I now have a second family deep in the mountains of Italy!
Thank you everyone who guided me through and took me in with welcoming smiles and giving me such a great adventure! Special thank you to Mikaela Bandini, Chiara De Pol, Paolo Pincelli, Caspar Diederik, and Lucia Pecoraro.
And to all the bikers and hikers who took me way up into the mountains to show me the Italian way of life! You guys are truly an inspiration! I hope to be as cool as all of you someday, haha! 🙂
