    Ibis Mojo HD4 vs Pivot Mach 5.5

    Hey guys - anyone out there with experience on an Ibis Mojo and/or a Pivot Mach 5.5?

    Both have similar design specs. Both have similar geometry. The Ibis has a slacker head tube angle. The Pivot has a bit less rear travel. They both spec the same fork (XT build).

    They are both designed around a dw link platform.

    As far as climbing, handling, steering, downhill - how does each one differ from the other?

    Ibis claims that the Mojo "Maintains the pedaling performance that Ibis bikes have always been known for..." but also has big-hit capability.

    Is Ibis a better climber or is the Pivot better?

    Is Ibis known to have a plusher ride?

    What are each bikes strengths and weaknesses???

    I would look at the Mach 6. It can take 2.6 tires too. It fits right between the 5.5 and HD4 for head angle. I own a Mach 6 and ride the 5.5 breefly. I would take the 6 over the 5.5 in all situations. It pedals as well and has more travel.

    The 2.6 feel super draggy to me, ymmv.

    Yeah the Mach 6 is more of a direct comparison to the HD4, the 5.5 is more of a burly trail bike. If riding hard and fast all the time is your thing then go with the HD4 (or Mach6), if you want more of an all-rounder that can handle the occasional enduro then look at the 5.5.

    I currently own a Turner RFX 4.0 but would love to see a head to head back to back test/review from say three different riders of the three. The RFX, new Pivot Mach 6 and the Ibis HD4.
