    All Mountain Mojo

    What's up fellas heres are some photos of my new ride. I have been putting her through some test and she has A's them all. Notice the 36 Talas in the 100mm position, it's a must for climbing steep terrain. 160mm for the way back down!!!!









    Here's a small video clip I made, my first so it's kinda amateur. Just click on it so you could view it.

    Watch out for the WW build on the SL, this bike will float away, its not natural, it feels so crazy having enduro travel with road bike weight.

    Nice setup

    I'm going to go with a 36 Talas also, replacing my 32 Talas. Also the DHX air is going to be my first upgrade. What's your BB height? Is that Mission Trails?
    It looks familiar.

    Great set up, I am so tempted to go Talas 36 (and RP23 PUSHED that is enough for me).

    That's Cowles Mountain also known as baby Noble. I was getting lot's of pedal smack on this trail. I measured the BB on my ride and at the100mm setting is at 12in at 160mm it's at 13in. The Mojo BB is lower than other trail bikes but maybe thatís what makes it so stable, you quickly learn to anticipate the next trail obstacle and how to half pedal in order to avoid contact.

    That is what I have found with my Mojo as well. I swear it has made me a much better rider as now I really ride the trail instead of just plowing over it until I came to a crunching stop. It is such a good technical pedaling bike that it almost teaches you when to ratchet pedal.

    I was really impressed with it's slow speed handling up technical terrain. I have rode this trail many times before, this was my first with my new ride and I was able to clean the whole mountain for the first time.

    Very nice setup gonzo,
    Any chance you San Diego gentlemen feel like hosting an OC boy on a Mojo after the rains for a ride. I have been confined to so few parks in the OC after the fires that a San Diego trip is calling. So what do you say maybe a 12th or 13th morning ride at a great SD spot??? Coffee is on me after the ride. PM me if you think you can. SORRY FOR THE HIJACK
    Vote with your feet.
    No bike is perfect!

    looks sweet, sick build, and light too. whats it weigh? how's the dhx air? I had a lyrik coil on my mojo (not sl) and it felt a little heavy. sick on the steeper downs though, I liked the slacker head tube angle.

    I thought I recognized that climb. Should be a bit more challenging after this rain. With my Talas 32, I'm at 12.75 in. so a 1/4 of an in. will help some.(lower than the specs state) I'm getting used to the half pedaling a lot.
