We think adventures should only be limited by your imagination, and while we can't read minds, we'd wager that the engineers at Ibis feel the same. It's pretty easy to see when we take a glance at the brand's lineup of rowdy mountain bikes, and while a life of singletrack certainly will bring you quite the adrenaline rush, we think adventure pushes well beyond rock gardens, and into the wild beyond, roads less traveled, and up winding mountain passes that would be tedious to pedal on a full-suspension rig. As such, we thoroughly appreciate Ibis' resurgence of its Hakkalugi last year, bringing it into the future and pulling it out of its 'cross roots and into the do-it-all, all-road adventure spectrum with the Hakka MX Disc 650b Rival Complete Gravel Bike. This lofty adventure-mobile comes ready for anything with 650b hoops, but can be swapped to 700c for snappy responsiveness making it as capable between the tape as it is lumbering up singletrack or poorly graded fire roads. The only real limit to what this bike can do is your imagination and whether or not you have a different set of wheels handy. The previous generations of Hakkalugis did a pretty good job of crossing over into gravel and road rides, but both the geometry and tire clearance hinted at its 'cross roots. The Hakka MX (or Monster Cross) does indeed take cues from the OG Hakkalugi, but it extends its range, making it more of a complete all-rounder outside of the course tape. The term monster cross has dropped out of use with the advent of industry terms like "road plus" and "gravel grinders" but Ibis is bringing it back into vernacular with tire clearance on a gravel grinder that we'd expect from an XC bike. With the exception of high-level road racing, this bike is poised to kill a quiver of cyclocross, gravel, and road bikes, because it lets you replace those other machines with a discipline-specific wheelset, instead. Ibis mountain bikes have been built exclusively from carbon fiber for sever...
