    Ibis has certified 650b for the Mojo HD140

    Ibis recently certified 650b for the Mojo HD140

    See page 2...
    Fox, RockShox, DT-Swiss, Schwalbe and Others Develop 650b gear | The Straight Dirt | MountainBike.com

    And there's more about Fox, Rockshox, and DT Swiss 650b specific fork rumors

    I just hope Rockshox will make a Lyrik u-turn coil for 650b.. oh wait it does fit already!

    It's about time!

    My Mojo SL is not "certified", but damn does it work! I just hope the RockShox Revelation
    650b fork will have a 1/8 steerer option or I might have to buy an HD.

    I love it. Like there's an actual certification... It's just 'approved' which still doesn't mean a helluva lot, eh?

    It's weird to be waiting for this 650b wave to crash.

    What a great read about 650B. I can't wait for this to hit become popular. I own a 29" hardtail and 26" 6" travel bike. I always think how great it would be to split the difference.

    This picture is 2.1 rear with 2.2 Wolverine front. I now have a 2.3 Neo on the front. This is my second Mojo SL frame setup 650b and it seems to have slightly more clearance at the rear.

    Thanks lml. Just mounted a 2.3 Neo in there and it fit. Ride today had me scraping out leaves and mud a few times but it was a new trail cut in and we had 2" of rain yesterday.

    It's already been done, it's what preceded the 29er movement.

    Guitar Ted Productions: Friday News And Views

    Wes Williams, who had formerly been a welder at Ibis Cycles, had been quietly making his "28"ers" in Crested Butte, Colorado using the largest ISO622/700c tires he could get his hands on at the time. These bikes were made under the Willits Brand name. (Mostly Continental Goliaths) These tires were not really mountain bike tires, being somewhat skinny, (45mm or so in width), and not having an ideal tread pattern for mountain biking. Wes noted that the outer diameter was nominally 28 inches, thus the "28"er" designation.

    Well then, as the 650b came back from the 1920's(?), so be it for the 28er.
    Imagine, a 28er would have preempted 29 or 650b...and DC would have been out in the cold.

    I have a 2010 Mojo sL frame, will the 650B fit without shimming the rear shock, or is that still necessary?

    I converted two Mojo SL's to 650b f/r. Both needed shimming. ALWAYS check the clearance with your wheel, rim, tire combination!

    Yes, the Mojo SL is not a problem, but rear tires are tight and you'll need at least 3mm of shim. Here's a Neo 2.1 on a crest rim - chain stay fit is tight but ok for all but clayey mud and this frame needed 4mm shock shim.

    That said, getting a HD140!

    Here's mine in its latest form, after my sloppy five mile single track commute to work.... maybe I'll change my handle to "QuonsetHut"!

    Woah. Nev 2.35" on Flow, in a Revelation?

    Jealous of the footprint...and front squish. I have some Idaho backcountry rides that would fit this bill...

    Oooh, I love those Idaho back country rides.... only been once to visit a friend in Ketchum...need to go back. We did a work / riding / fly fishing trip up through NM, CO, ID, MT.... Idaho blew everybody's doors off.

    Yeah, I was wondering how long it would take before somebody noticed...not long apparantly...haha

    I bought that fork a long time ago and was disappointed that it didn't fit a decent sized tire, so I've been riding my '09 Rev w/ better clearance and procrastinating about selling this one.... finally decided, F&@K IT and filed the arch out...and you know, it really didn't take much filing at all..much less than I anticipated, BUT I'M NOT ADVOCATING DOING THIS AT HOME KIDS.
    Anyway, rides great... the bb's a bit on the high side (which works fine in my neighborhood) at 354mm (13.9") and the black box damper or Push dual circuit like I have in my old Rev would be my preference to better match the plush and adjustable rear end...but it's splitting hairs... haven't really gotten fully dialed on the Monarch RT-AM yet, but initial reports are all good!

    I've been watching this Mojo 650 B thread for quite a while and finally bought a HD 140. I have wheels being built right now and am looking forward to joining the ranks. It Should
    make a great all mountain rig. Thanks for all the great input !
