My new bike, a Ibis Mojo SL, has been "absent" for the last few weeks. Off being reviewed by Mountain Biking Australia magazine for the next issue.
Now that I finally have it back... it's been in the workshop downstairs being prepped for the Simpson Desert trip.
The (heavily) customised build is as follows:
Frame - Ibis Mojo SL (naked carbon)
Rear shock - DT Swiss XR Carbon
Fork - Manitou Minute MRD
Brakes - Hayes Stroker carbon (w/6" rotors)
Stem - Syncros FLS
Bars - Salsa Pro Moto 11degree flat bars (cut down a smidge')
Seatpost - Syncros AM
Saddle - SDG Grand Prix
Wheels: I have two pairs each pair set up for different conditions. Both hand built by Wheelcraft.
Sandy days wheels:. DT Swiss hubs, Stan's Arch rims, Supercomp spokes w/ProLock nipples. and Syncros Point n Chute 2.5" tyres (for sand floatation).
Fireroad days: DT Swiss 240s hubs, DT Swiss 4.2d rims, Aerolite spokes w/ProLock nipples and Ritchey Speedmax Beta 2.2".
Both wheelsets are running Stan's No Tubes sealant.
Pedals - Crank Brothers Acid2
Drivetrain - Sram XO w/twist shifters.
Guess I'd better take it out for a ride this weekend...
