Ibis Mojo HD3 - Review
Perhaps the picture is deceiving. The seat angle on the HD is right in line with other offerings such as as the Yeti SB6C (73.5 deg), Santa Cruz Nomad (74.2), Santa Cruz Bronson (73 deg), Itense Tracer T275 (74.5 deg) ... blah blah. So it is by no means more upright than any of those bikes. With the old Mojo HD, if you have the seat post right up, with the fork extended at 160 mm, yep, the seat angle is too far back and you end up loading up the rear end a bit too much. When you reduce the travel in the front end, it feels about right. So from a bum on seat point of view, this would bring it more into line as to where it should be without having to drop the front end to get a more efficient pedalling platform. Not sure why the current set up would be so impractical.

Ibis Mojo HD3 - Review
I think this is the bike they should have released as the 2nd gen. As a very proud Mojo HD owner, I'm in no need to upgrade any time soon, but the 2nd gen didn't quite do it for me. This however, would be right at the top of the wish list if I wanted to make a change any time soon. To those out there pondering, yes, these things pedal extremely well, so much so that it makes you wonder why you would bother with a hard tail if you like your down hills. With the Fox 36 they are bloody brilliant. Looking foward to a CC DBInline upgrade on mine. They are such a lively poppy and fun bike to ride. This version looks like it builds on all the right elements to deliver a ripper bike without going too long / low / slack. The only caveat is that if you ride shore all the time, yep, that super slack HA on some other offerings would be preferable. For everyone else, pick your poison.

Ibis Mojo HD3 - Review
The first gen Mojo HD was / is 180 mm fork compliant. Can't get much more thrash ready than that. Not sure of this model comes rated for a 180 mm fork.

Giant DH Team - Medium

$250 CAD
Great condition 2005 Giant DH Team Medium Frame. Comes with: - Frame - Manitou 6 way, fully re-built by Avalanche with the speed sensitive damping system installed. 450 lb spring (you need to run a stiffer spring now that there's no pro-pedal / SPV type system in place). Amazing result. - Raceface Diablous cranks - Near new Cromag 36T chainring - 1 season (about 10 days at Whistler) old MRP G2 chainguide. It has a small dent in the top tube that's been there ever since I bought the bike way back in 2006. It's never given me any trouble and I don't expect it to now. The bearings were replaced in the frame / swing arm at the start of 2012. The DU bushings are up for replacement in the shock, but that is a simple fix. WIll also supply brand new Aluminum bushings for the shock (top and bottom) to get you off and running. Buyer pays any postage and Paypal fees. Given the weight, would prefer local pickup.
