It has become no secret that I fell in bike love with the Ibis Mojo this past season and for good reason. No other bike in recent years has made me want to get out and ride more than that shiny carbon two wheeler that I spent the better portion of my season on. When we find bikes like this we try not to get too caught up in them as we know that we'll have to move on to new pastures sooner or later - that's what we do as testers, writers and lovers of this sport. Once it was my turn to move on, I found out about the Mojo HD - since that time I've been looking forward to riding one and seeing if it would live up to my Mojo experience.

Building up a bike that let me climb with ease and not be scared to bits on the descents is what I needed.
