    2nd, 3rd, 4th opinion on sizing

    Hi all,

    I'm just looking for some more opinions on sizing. I am getting ready to order my Mojo HD with my tax return. I know that probably only the people from Ibis have ridden them so far, but looking for some advice from those who have at least ridden a Mojo. I did not get to even ride a regular Mojo since my LBS didn't have a demo.

    I am 5'7" (170 cm) with a 28" (71 cm) inseam, weigh about 140 lb (63-64 kg) 150 lb riding weight, I guess a fairly typical asian build. My bike right now has a 23" TT, a 70mm stem, and a set-back seat post. I feel very slightly stretched out, but with a change of seat posts I would be fine. It seems a little hard to compare to that though, since it is a hardtail with a 100mm fork.

    My LBS said definitely a medium. Just looking to verify what they recommended, or see if the small would fit better. Whatever size i go with, I will be running a 160mm fork, and a KS i950 seatpost that I have. I guess I should mention that I am building this up as a ~30lb lightish all-mountain build. I ride Moab, St. George, Fruita, and anywhere else in Utah, I would also like to start taking more trips to elsewhere to ride this summer.

    Thanks

    Medium with a shorter stem (than you would have to run on a small) would be nice...

    Thanks a lot pono and Hans, you were one of the people I was hoping would chime in. Thanks for confirming what I thought.

    Yeah, I'd go medium. I am about 2" taller than you, and wish I was on a large instead of the medium.

    Looks like it's unanimous, I'll get a medium. Now I just have to find the money, completed my taxes, and ended up owing money.

    Thanks all

    Tax time always makes me remember my first tax year filing as self-employed when the tax accountant said, "There's good news and bad news". What's the good news?, I asked. "You can't go to jail for owing taxes". So much for the good news.
