Cyclists are versatile creatures, and as such, it's good to have options. Now, to some that may mean having a quiver in the garage to sort through, finding just the right steed for the day, however we think we're better suited when we've got a single ride that transcends categories, like the Ibis Hakka MX Disc Rival Complete Bike. As the newest version of what used to be the Hakkalugi, its not surprising that versatility is a priority on the Hakka MX, however it pushes further into the realm of gravel than before, offering you a steed capable of dominating both between the tape, and well down the road less traveled. The Hakka MX is capable of rolling ontop of either 650b hoops, or the 700c wagon wheels we see here, which provide quick-rolling capability that we want when we're covering huge swathes of land in a day, all the while still accommodating lofty tires that keep us comfortable when things get rough and chattery.

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-specifi...
