Strengths: Super light - w/ the right components this thing can weight close to 25lbs. I like the angle of the top tube, well my manhood and future children do. It's fun to be different - you'll get people asking about the bike. It's held up just fine for the 3 years I've used it and I'm over 200lbs all geared up.
Weaknesses: I think the 0.5" of 'suspension' in the rear is kind of a gimmick, but maybe someone else can tell.
If you want a climber and find one of these for <$500 I'd say go for it. It's been really good to me, and I think I'll have to keep it as a life-long bike (at least the frame).
Similar Products Used: Demo'd a Trek Fuel 9.5, rode a ~$1000 giant dual suspension once, and I own a 12 year old Giant Yukon front suspension that's been great to me.
Bike Setup: XTR v-brakes and front derailer, LX rear, XT cranks, aheadset, Go Fast bar, serfas barb-wire grips, WTB xxt scz saddle (it sucks!), Easton stem, Manitou ss-e fork and planet X steering tube thing.

Strengths: Great ride with enough travel to take the edge off. I have tried suspension frames that broke, and have had a hard time replacing the "Steel Feel" ride that I used to have. This bike is the best of both the Steel and Aluminum worlds. Stiff as hell, but resiliant enough to keep you from being pounded to death.
Weaknesses: Not Canadian Built!!!! The price of the frame only is quite scary...You have to be a fan of the bike to pay the price. The styling is a love it ...hate it variety.
Buy it, ride it , love it!!!! Most versatile bike I've tried. Being 260 lbs beats stuff up, and I have had no problems with this bike.
I am the owner of a beautiful Mountain Cycle Moho Slix frame, living in Keswick, England.
I bought the frame second hand, but i got unlucky since the rear triangle has snapped at the weld.
Does anyone know what to do, where to look or who to talk to?

Hey guys. Would love to hear your thoughts on the differences between these two bikes. Pros and cons. Etc... My riding style is aggressive AM, have to climb to earn the downs. I own the 575 (4 mths old), but rode the mojo hd at an Ibis demo and I have to admit it felt great. I thought the 575 was ... Read More »

I'll start off from the beginning. I've been riding bicycles from very early age. Then, for my
10th birthday (in 1992) I got my first 26" wheeled 18-speed MTB. It had a steel frame, rigid fork,

Just curious for those, if any who have time on an HD... Ibis website says the HD is "optimized for a 32t chainring and therefore, the 22 or 24t ring in the Hammerschmidt will promote pedal bob". Is it safe to say the 22,32,44 stylo triple parts pick will promote pedal bob in the 22t ring or "gra ... Read More »
