Ibis Mojo HD3 Released

  Ibis Cycles release the Mojo HD Generation 3 (Mojo HD3)  The new Mojo HD3 is the third act in the Mojo HD/Mojo HDR trailbike trilogy. Everything is new from the ground-up, notably featuring the latest and greatest refinement of the famed dw-link suspension. Geometry is fully modern: longer, lower and slacker, with 6” of plush rear wheel travel. We’ve built in versatile internal routing and updated the frame design, allowing us to put a water bottle on top of the downtube. We also achieve a drop in weight and pedaling performance on par with the Ripley, so the bike is very fast going up, and scary fast going down. 650b (27.5″)...

Alpine EPIC Time lap...

Being on World Trail’s Alpine EPIC crew at Mt Buller last Summer was awesome. Finally the time has come for the trail to open (on December 6th). Here’s a little look behind the scenes, at a day in the life of the Alpine EPIC. The first video is a 3000 frame GoPro timelapse shot...

Join Ibis on Google+

A while back I noticed something pretty cool was missing on Google Plus – an Ibis community! If you ride an Ibis, represent and share the love on Google+:-)...

Scratch & Shape

It feels great to be back on the hand tools after  few months off, even if it’s just a few hours here and there making minor changes to trails. One thing is for sure though – riding fresh trails for the first time after a building session is always good fun!  

Fat Tire Fun

Take one MTB fat bike, cut it in half and what have you got? The awesome Nimbus Oregon! The Oregon can definitely be a handful on regular MTB trails due to the self steering huge tire, but get it out on wet foreshore sand and it is a bunch of...

Alpine EPIC Teaser

Bike Buller have posted a video teaser of the new Australian Alpine EPIC trail due to open on December 6th. It was a dream come true to work with World Trail last Summer on the EPIC trail and I’m super proud of what we achieved. I don’t have any doubt that the fast and flowy ~8km...

DIY GoPro MTB SPD Pedal Mount

I’m always on the look out for new and whacky places to mount the GoPro on my Mojo HDR. I reckoned a shoe level mount that moved with the rider could provide some cool points of view and interesting blur effects especially for stills — along with nauseatingly spinning video…haha! Thanks to the unused underside SPD clip the puzzle was already largely solved. All I needed to make was a camera mounting bar that clipped into the underside of the pedal and shazaam… job done.     A strip of 2mm thick aluminium plate leftover from prototyping my mountain unicycle handlebar was perfect for the main bar –...

Back On Ya Horse

After a couple of months of downtime I’m stoked to feel well enough to get back out on my Mojo HDR – on Fathers Day nonetheless! I headed out to Mt Tarrengower for a late afternoon session of playing around on the super grippy granite slabs and boulders on the north side of the...

DIY GoPro MTB Backpack ‘Aerial’ Mount ...

GoPro accessories don’ t have to set you back a small fortune. A while back I made a MTB backpack based ‘aerial’ mount for my GoPro out of PVC tubing for less than $20. Sweet! While working at Mt Buller last Summer on the new EPIC MTB trail I got the itch to make a backpack based pseudo ‘aerial’ camera mount. While GoPro pics and video shot using helmet mounted booms are definitely cool, I reckoned a DIY backpack based GoPro mount could be a fun (and cheap!) alternative to explore. It would also be pretty cool if it meant I could take ‘aerial’ footage without interrupting the flow of the ride, and...
