    Ibis Mojo Test in MBA

    A lot of people (including me!!) have been waiting to hear some riding impressions of the new Mojo Carbon. Riding impressions other than our own that is.

    I just received my electronic copy (zinio.com) of the July MBA, and there's a nice Mojo test in there by Richard Cunningham. The print version should be out soon.

    It's a great test, and we've posted a little blurb on our site, along with a pdf of the whole test.

    One of the interesting things Richard said was that he expected the bike to be more expensive than it was. It's interesting because he thought the bike was a good value, and he had the price wrong by $1100 too much! When you read the article, the high end SL build is $4399, not the $5500 that Richard quoted.

    To see the pictures and a little blurb, go here:

    The whole pdf can be downloaded here, but be careful, it's 4 megs.

    enjoy,

    Thanks Scot, now the tough question... when will they start shipping? (How many times have you heard this question lately?) Any update?

    They are sweet looking! I used to have a hamster I named Ibis. Sadly, Ibis passed away about 9 years ago. It's good to see the bike company back though! When will these be available? Any chance of the Mojo making a comback?

    The VPP gamble with a scientist and a computer looks like it will pay off .

    My college GF and I had a chocolate lab named Ibis. Still alive, and living in Japan. Ibis the company made her (the puppy, not my GF) a collar out of recycled inner tubes with the shraeder valves sticking out like spikes!!! Sent a bunch of schwag, too. No wonder I purchased a Silk Ti and Mojo afterward. Sold them. Like the GF and her cool dog, I should've kept them around a lot longer.

    enjoy,

    Congratulations!
    I try to keep a frame for at least 5-7 year but in front of this beauty I am afraid my current bike will have to enter early retirement : beautiful job something to be very proud of

    I'd like to say "yes," but the girl was a keeper. Family LOVED her, friends adored her, she did everything I liked to do yet had her own life. And to put icing on the cake, her family was wildly wealthy who acted like average everyday people do: BBQ's, didn't drive expensive cars, and on and on and on. Did I mention she raced bikes?? Yep. Keeper.
