    Anti-Glamor Picture Thread

    Let's see some pictures of you riding your Ibis or your friends riding their Ibises. I love all the glamor shots, but we need a picture thread to prove that we really do ride our Ibises and that they are not just gorgeous pieces of art. I'll start.

    here are some unglamorous shots of my Mojo SL.

    The first is me practicing on some small berms under some pine some trees, and the second, the same Mojo SL complete with rack- holding a sleeping bag- after a two day back-country ride.
    The bike worked perfectly

    I think it is a good picture.
    It tells a story, and there you are out on your bike. Having fun by choosing to ride a log ! :-)

    Not glamorous. Although this corner is much steeper and narrower than it looks:

    Here's a picture of my Ibis having lots of fun at the SMBA trails in Saratoga,NY last Saturday and another not so glamorous pic of my Ibis not having much fun later that day. These trails are PERFECT for the Mojo SL. New hanger arrived yesterday so she'll be ready to go this coming weekend (hopefully).

    Looks like you should have ordered 2 hangers! One for the fix and one for the emergency kit. You're always in the gnar gnar.

    Pretty cool looking trail there, are there more technical type trails there in Saratoga better for the HD? Have family nearby and may take a trip up there soon. M

    I still have some serious HD envy but my Mojo SL has been rocking solid for 2 years and doesn't flinch when I keep pushing it harder.

    Hi Iceman: Definitely come up and ride Saratoga. You would definitely have fun with an HD there. There are a lot of places where there are choices as to which line to take. They have well over 20 miles of trail, but it feels like more than 20 miles because of the technicality. Post on SMBA or on the NY section of MTBR before you come up. Spier Falls is also close to Saratoga. It is more technical and has a lot more climbing.

    Great shots everyone!

    These shots include my trusty 2007 blue mojo. The bike has been beyond awesome... it's brought my passion for mountain biking back! The plushness, efficiency and handling are off the charts fun!

    Shots taken near Vail & Durango. Cheers!

    This is more of a proud father moment then just an Ibis moment but I have to share this picture as riding my 10 year old son on the trails is truly something special.

    Riding with my son cant be beat, but my worry level is just a little higher than with my friends!
    Here is my 15 year old try out my new HD. I figure photo missing his head qualifies as an antiglam shot.

    Murchman. That is awesome. My son is 2 now and there is a Rail to Trail by us that I pull him in the trailer on but before hand and following the ride he rides his little trek in the parking lot. I am excited for when he can ride on a real trail.

    New HD sweetness high above Boise. The 3000 foot climb on an HD was a beast but the downhill was most excellent.
