So what do you look at to know if a used bike is in good condition? Looking at a used ibis mojo.... Forks, shock, frame, how to tell?
Would first ride some to better determine what type, geo, and size of bike.
Then I'd check here BikePedia to see what's been changed and what should be.
Then maybe here Bicycle Blue Book - Trade With Confidence
Then the usual hold front brake rock front/back onto headset, check for wobble on bb, pedals, crankset, rims, cassette, rotors, bent derailuers, worn gears, chain, chainring. Rims centered? Cracks or failing welds? bearing turning freely/making noise?

Used Ibis Mojo carbon? well, it's gotta be in person, checking the frame, look for cracks or fractures. check the links it should be smooth. The rest just follow theMeat suggestion.
If you're asking this question, either buy new, or find someone who knows bikes, and is willing to help you assess what you're considering buying, or ... Learn everything Meat has suggested.
Best of luck !
Some of his (listed) items are kind of tough to determine, unless you've seen them messed up.
Pay your local wrench to give it the once over and report on its condition.
