The Hakka MX is our answer to the Swiss Army Knife. It’s the bike we’d choose if, heaven forbid, we could only have one bike.
The Hakka MX is a gravel bike. It’s also a cross bike and a road bike. We’ve logged a few bike packing trips on the Hakka too.
You can outfit the bike with 27.5 mountain bike wheels, where it’ll accept up to a 2.1” tire.
In 700c mode, it’ll accommodate very nicely tires from 23c to over 40c.
With the hydraulic brakes being so good on CX/road/gravel bikes now, coupled with the ability to run big-volume big-traction tires, this bike is a total blast on dirt (especially fast flowing singletrack).

I bought this bike sight unseen, based on reviews. I got the 650b rival bike! And I have to say man was it worth the wait on gravel it is smooth and fast and single track forget about it!!!! I even tried it out on the road doing hill repeats and it did that too! I would recommend 700c wheels for full effect! This bike is capable no matter what you are using it for. The staff a Glory Cycles were great and patient while we waited for Ibis to deliver the bike. So do not sit on the fence get this bike.
