Ibis Mojo riders rejoice! Ibis have added ISCG 05 compatible mounts to the Mojo HDR (you can check out the HDR’s ISCG 05 implementation in detail here). I had been running a modified Ibis-specific MRP guide but now with the freedom to run any ISCG guide have swapped over to the E Thirteen XCX+ I05 Guide.
It’s a slick piece of kit. The XCX+ guide is light, strong and beautifully machined. Small details like a captive nut in the mount make it a snap to fit and adjust. Unlike the MRP guide the internal shape of I05 guide is flared to suit the chainline as it moves up and down the cassette – cool stuff. Durability-wise the I05 plastic guide feels far more robust vs the MPR which was prone to cracking.
Fitted on the bike the XCX+ guide looks very clean, neatly sandwiched between the chainring and the frame. Out on the trail the performance to date has been flawless. Great stuff!
