3: Ibis Mojo HD
The long-running Mojo HD from Ibis can still be bought with 26in wheels. Though it’s been around for a good few years now, the carbon frame still looks good, it’s dated well. The frame packs 140mm travel in this guise, though the upper shock mount and shock could be switched out for a set that will eke out 160mm of travel. In 140mm mode and with a 150mm fork the bike has a 68-degree head angle, which sounds just right for UK trail riding. You can now also buy a new rear swingarm if you wish to upgrade to 650b at any point…
