Revel Rail 29 Ride Report – Cedar City, Utah

A few weeks ago the new Revel Rail 29 showed up at the shop in Hurricane. With 155mm of Canfield Balance Formula suspension, fun-focused geometry and a beautiful carbon frame, the Rail 29 seems like it was designed especially for Southern Utah. For our Revel Rail 29 ride report, we sent Photo-John and OTE, HU service manager, Todd Cramblett, to Cedar City to see what it could do.

2021 OTE 3Day Buena Vista Event

At the end of June we invited a large group of our friends to meet us for 3 days of bikes and other fun in Buena Vista, Colorado. Not everyone made it, but those who did enjoyed the amazing hospitality of our friends Simon Stewart and Joe Parkin and their great little cafe/restaurant Push & Pull in Buena Vista and also the BV Bike Co. Every day of the event began and ended there, with coffee and waffles in the AM and various culinary delights and drinks in the evenings. The weather either did or didn’t co-operate, it depends how you look at it. With a heat wave across a large part of the country the cooler temps and occasional rain shower were welcome, and made for hero dirt conditions. DAY ONE – Vitamin B Trail Push and Pull invaded by Stagette After the days ride we returned to Push […]

The New Ibis Ripley AF – Southern Utah Ride Report

Join us for an Ibis Ripley AF Southern Utah ride report!  In 2019, Ibis surprised mountain bikers with an aluminum version of their super popular Ripmo 29er enduro bike. Offering comparable performance at a much lower price, the aluminum Ripmo AF was a huge success. Now, Ibis has done the same thing with their Ripley 29er XC trail bike. Introducing the new Ibis Ripley AF: a more affordable Ripley with an aluminum frame. The Ripley AF has 29-inch wheels, 120mm of travel in the back, a 130mm fork and the geometry has been stretched and slackened to make it happier on the descents. Best of all – you can buy a complete Ripley AF for as little as $2999. Ibis visited Hurricane in November and brought us a pre-production Ripley AF 29er to check out. Photo-John and Quentin took it out to JEM to get some action photos and to […]

Ibis Mojo 4 First Ride – Gooseberry Mesa

The Ibis Mojo mountain bike is a classic. It’s arguably the original full-suspension carbon trail bike. The latest version, the Ibis Mojo 4, was launched recently and arrived at the shop a few weeks ago for our mountain bike rental fleet. As soon as we got our hands on the new Mojo we took it out to Gooseberry Mesa for an Ibis Mojo 4 first impressions ride: a classic ride for a classic bike, if you will. The modern trail bike was born in 2005 when the original Ibis Mojo mountain bike was introduced. At the time you pretty much had two choices for full-suspension mountain bikes – XC or downhill/freeride – steep angles with short travel or slack and squishy. The Ibis Mojo changed that with 140mm of travel, a sleek carbon frame and slacker, more aggressive geometry than most early to mid-2000s mountain bikes. Fifteen years later (has […]
