This is a finesse rider’s bike, one that really comes into its own when the brute force approach is left at home in favour of planning and precision.

We routinely stuffed it so hard into corners that it’d be fair to say that exit speed was the last thing on our minds, especially given that we really didn’t expect to actually exit the corner on the bike, yet we usually did exactly that.

Some bikes have the sort of personality that can be forgettable at the best of times, but the HDR 650B reminds us that fun is the name of the game out there. And while we admit to finding its rear suspension a touch harsh, the bike can move over the ground in a way that makes you look for opportunities to let it hang out, although it isn’t the best choice if you spend most of your time on rocky, rough trails. Given that it requires a different shock and mounting hardware, we certainly don’t expect HDR owners to swap between 650B and 26″ wheels on a regular basis, but rather spec it from Ibis how they see fit.- Mike Levy
