Date Reviewed: June 1, 2008

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.

Bottom Line:   
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).

Submitted by Mike Petterson a Weekend Warrior from Vancouver, Canada

Date Reviewed: May 10, 2000

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.

Bottom Line:   
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.

Submitted by Jim Allington a Racer from Lakewood, CO.

Date Reviewed: November 8, 1999

Strengths:    
Monocoque frame-looks different.
.5 in of rear travel, just enough to take the edge off and still remain stiff. Lots of stand over height, very quick and easy to maneuver


Weaknesses:    
The frame is not a stiff as I would like, it seems to move a bit


Bottom Line:   
great frame. Complient, sprints well, can be ridden aggressively all day and you feel as though you did not waste any energy. The frame looks cools and turns heads all day as well!

Moho Slix 2004

Hi everyone, 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? ThanksRead More »

'11 Yeti 575 vs. '11 or '12 Moho HD???

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 »

Moho HD and pedal bob

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 »
