Ibis Mojo 3 Plus bikes 

DESCRIPTION

You could call it the baby brother to the Mojo HD3 or the successor to the Mojo SL/SL-R. Either way, it’s a good thing, and maybe it's our most versatile trailbike ever. You can run 2.3, 2.5 or 2.8 Plus tires on the Mojo 3, all with the same wheelset and without compromise. The Mojo 3 shares a lot of DNA with the HD3. Where the HD3 is big and burly, the Mojo 3 is light, taut and energetic. The latest generation of the dw-link gives the bike its amazing climbing and descending abilities. Low, long and slack best describes the geometry, with the added bonus of extremely short chainstays. Notably, it’s not so slack that only a few World Cup Downhill pros can use it to its full capacity. The bike is nimble yet massively capable.

Strength:

The Mojo 3 has a very good suspension design that pedals excellent, and descends very well. Compared to specialized stumpjumper, rocky mountain instinct, and santa cruz 5010 and intense spider, I liked how this rode the best, and I rode all of them with 2.3 inch tires for a fair comparison. The bike is very well made and many of the tiniest details are thought of, making it a pleasure to work on instead of a nightmare.There is little to no noticeable pedal feedback in the pedals. The bike can accommodate up to 27.5x2.8 tires, which are a delight to ride on when they are properly inflated. By and large, this is a very, very good bike that is flexible to riders wants and needs and with a few adjustments can be a real delight for any rider. The ride feel is snappy and wants you to go faster.

Weakness:

My biggest gripe is that this bike is not sold in an aluminum option like santa cruz and rocky mountain and specialized and intense do. The bike is very expensive and the carbon frame is not helping that one bit. I bought a used demo model because the bike was out of my price range otherwise. The next gripe with this bike is the tires. I strongly recommend just going back to 2.3's for you own sanity. The 2.8's are really fun, but do not last long and are expensive and require precise tire pressures or the handling changes sharply at the limit. The ability to run these tires was considered an advantage over the competition, but it is more of a gimmick. Even Ibis is speccing 2.6's now, as the 2.8's are less than ideal. The design puts my weight far back, which means I had to really lean on the front tire in corners or the front tire won't bite, especially 2.3's. I quickly fixed this by putting on a longer stem and wider bars.

Strength:

Purchased a size Medium based on the chart on Ibis' website. Bike fits perfectly for me at 5'7" with a 50mm stem. I don't feel overly strectched out like I would on my Medium santa cruz Bronson. Bike weighs 28.3 lbs even with Ibis 738 wheels. This bike is easy to toss around, almost BMX like, geometry makes it feel way lighter than any other bike ive owned even with 2.8 nobby nic tires. Ive posted my fastest Strava times on this bike too, both up and downhill. A lot has to do with the amount of traction you get with the tires, climbing is much quicker, and inspires confidence when bombing downhill. You get the sensation that the tires are glued to the ground. I run 13F/14R PSI btw without burping or feeling squirmy. The suspension feels like you have more travel than the 130R/ 140 F. Feels comparable to my Santa Cruz Bronson. I could easily call this a one quiver mtb bike.

Weakness:

I initially ran 175 psi in the rear shock which gave me 25% sag. I had quite a bit of pedal strikes. I went back to their website and found a chart with body weight and suggested shock pressure. for my weight, it says to pump up to 200psi. went with that and havnt had a pedal strike and the rear suspension does not feel harsher.
