Wander the aisles of the Riva del Garda Bike Festival long enough and it seems you meet just about everyone…
It wasn’t too long before we bumped into ‘The Pope of Enduro’ Enrico Guala chatting to Jerome Clementz, which gave Dave the perfect opportunity to sneak off and photograph Enrico’s much pimped Ibis Mojo HD3. For your viewing pleasure, here it is…
What do you choose for an Ibis HD3 in ‘The Green Machine’ colour option? We reckon Enrico’s gone for a completely complimentary coloured component choice [oof – Ed.]. If there’s a greener bike out there we’ve yet to see it, though maybe it’s blending into a forest somewhere?
To match the 150mm of travel offered by the frame, there’s a DVO Diamond up front sporting what has to be one of the neatest integrated mudguards around.
Onza Citius 2.4in tyres mated to Ibis’ 741 rims offer plenty of grip and traction, which given conditions in Garda, and the notoriously slippery-when-wet local rock has to be a good thing.
Drivetrain duties are taken care of by SRAM’s flagship XX1. The 30T Chromag chainring gives plenty of sit and spin potential for the surrounding steep climbs.
Rear suspension duties are being taken care of by Cane Creek’s DB Inline; a very tuneable shock.
Chromag OSX 780mm bars feature a neat and uncluttered ‘cockpit’ with just a shifter and KS Southpaw to keep the thumbs busy.
And there’s the corresponding KS Lev dropper and matching Chromag Lynx DT saddle.
Very neat. And very green. http://4guimp.it
