Inside you can take a look at a colossal Ibis Mojo, and new and interesting parts from e.thirteen/the hive, Industry Nine, and MRP.
HUGE IBIS on display - Paul Bunyan to ride for IBIS?
Ibis had a HUGE Ibis Mojo on display that drew quite a lot of attention. I think they were trying to get that huge Paul Bunyan from Squamish to buy it as it had a nice “you must be this tall to ride” sign next to the bike.
Video: Mojo HD Overview 2011 Sea Otter
We talked with IBIS last year about the Mojo HD and you can watch that video here or visit our project page to see our custom project build on the Mojo HD.
IBIS also was showing off their Mojo SLR that has been quite popular amongst bikers. Check out the video we shot previously with them on the SL-R.
MRP was showing off a variety of parts including a new direct mount chainring called the bling ring for SRAM style cranks. The bling ring replaces the typical spider on most new SRAM cranks. If you’ve got a compatible SRAM crankset like the X0 DH you can use the MRP Bling Ring for a stiffer and lighter setup as there are no chainring bolts or spider in this system.
MRP BlingBling Direct Mount Chainring and Mini G2SL
The Bling Ring is available in a 28, 30, 32, 34, and 36t soon. A new micro G2SL chainguide is also available that works with chainrings sized 28-32t.
Bling Direct Mount Chain Ring - claimed 40% weight savings in comparable systems and additional stiffness
In addition to that, MRP also offers the traditional chain guides including the S4 , G2 SL, G2 SL Carbon, and more. Visit their website to learn more.
MRP G2SL Carbon chainguide uses a carbon fiber backplate in place of aluminum
Industry Nine makes some beautiful wheels that are stiff and lightweight. Tons of engagement at 120points (that’s every 3degrees), tons of color options, available in tons of axle configurations, and they’ve got an angry hornets nest sound that we dig.
A detailed machining process to get the finished product
The hubs and spokes are all made in their North Carolina facility and they offer traditional J-Bend hubs as well for those wanting to use conventional spokes. Check out their website to see more at industrynine.net
Lots of color options
They were showing off one of their new finishes here in a vibrant candy red looking finish. They’ve also got an all blacked out wheelset as well that looks quite stealthy as the logos are hidden underneath the hub’s finish.
A Yummy finished product
They can lace their hubs and spokes up to just about any rim out there and they even offer a bunch of pretty solid I9 branded rim options for their wheelsets that we’ve had great success with. Check out more details on the I9’s in our post here.
Even the hub end caps are matching
The Hive / e.thriteen now have a lot of their 2012 products in stock and shipping out. This includes their new LG1+ pedal, wheels, and much more.

The e.thriteen wheels are shipping now as well. Read all about the details in our earlier posting on them.
TRS+ Dual with direct mount bash or chainring bashguard setup
With trail riders using a 2x drivetrain system of some sort, e.thirteen has got two guides specifically for this application. If you want to run a direct mount bash guard on your dual ring chainguide or use a traditional bash ring e.thriteen has got you covered with their TRS+ chainguide options.
Standard mounts available (BB/ ISCG05/ ISCG) as well as a 36 or 40t max options. If money is tight, they also offer a more economical TRS Dual without the + in a high tensile CroMo backplate.
LG1+ pedals are finally here and they look good. Lots of features with the LG1+ pedals including removable plates, pins, spin control, and more. Watch the video below and read up on them here. Visit bythehive.com for more information on their product range.
