An Inside Look at What's In the Test Fleet:
The Ibis Mojo HD 160
The Mojo has always been a popular bike. It delivers sound performance and clean lines at them same time. While you won't see this bike at the top of the podium at any cross-country or hill climb events, it has claimed the top spot on Super D and Air downhill events many times.
: dw-Link suspension is nothing new, but every new bike that uses it develops its own personality. The HD strives to harness the anti-squat nature, while still delivering enough usable travel to level the ground on the most technical tracks.
This is our first long-term test on Fox's new CTD damper system. This bike came equipped with a Float Factory CTD rear shock.
The 34 Float Factory CTD delivers a matched 3-position damper system and fixed-travel air spring.
Shimano's newest innovation, the direct-mount Shadow Plus derailleur is designed to manage the chain and keep noise down. This is our first test on this newest generation of the system.
The MRP G2SL guide pairs with the Shadow Plus rear derailleur to make a system that should never drop a chain. We rarely see this level of chain management on a trail bike.
Big and Strong:
Wide bars and strong brakes finish out the build on our test bike. This is just our kind of trail machine.
The wrecking crew strives to put as many miles on each test bike before we write a full review. Watch for the full write-up on this bike in the coming pages of Mountain Bike Action.
