Blacktocommwrote a review of Ibis Mojo HD3 XTR 1x Werx Complete Bike - 2015 on April 10, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was able to do an extended demo of the new HD3 a couple weeks ago. I loved the bike, and every time I rode it I had a huge smile on my face.
The Pros: The bike climbs like a mountain goat. The bike engages almost instantly, you pedal and there is instant power to the bike. The pedaling feels like a road bike with the instant power transfer.
The Bike reacts incredibly fast also. It steers incredibly fast, and it feels like you are floating. It was amazing how easy it was to just make the bike go where you wanted.
The Cons: The steering was so fast it felt a little twitchy. I am sure with more time I could have dialed it in a little better, but the demo bike from the factory was very jumpy.
Another Con is reaching down to switch the rear suspension from lockout to engaged. It was at an awkward angle compared to many other bikes I have ridden. If you are not switching while riding it isn't an issue.
The bike did not feel as much like an all mountain bike as others with the same amount of travel. It is a great XC or race bike, but I did not feel as nimble ripping the corners as I have on other bikes.
Once you get to this level of bike it is impossible to get a bad bike, but I did not end up buying the Ibis after the demo ride of the bike.
