I'm feeling ready to pull the trigger...soon. Mojo SL size Large. Having demo'd the Mojo against a few other bikes at the top of my list, I keep going back to the Mojo. Tallboy was second, but didn't put the smile on my face like the Ibis. I prefer technical singletrack, ride pretty agressively but am light on my equipment. I'm 6 foot 175 lbs. & currently ride a 97 Klein Mantra Pro w/ XTR. Now to decide on some details...
The Mojo I rode had a DT Swiss shock, and I really liked how plush it was. Having a few other bikes out on the trails with RP23's, I didnt really feel like I'd bother with the PP on the mojo...the thing just flat out works, no matter what. I'm fairly set on the DT, but open to any feedback on other options. Watching the thread on the RPL vs RP23 closely. Any reason not to go with this shock? Will a PUSHd Fox be as good? Parts/service are my only concern atm.
Fork is the major sticking point right now. I DO know I'd like a 150 to help raise the BB slightly. The new Fox offerings look pretty sweet, but I'm leaning towards either the DT EXC 150 or the Rev XX 150. I've yet to see these two compared head to head, other than the usual high praise for the DT, and a few comments about the newest Rev's are nice. I'm leaning toward XX right now, so the Rev will integrate nicely, but if it's not up to par with the DT, I could care less. Same as with the shock, my only concern about the DT is parts/service down the road. Will a PUSHd Rev or Fox win out?
More to come as I try to iron out my details. Thanks for any feedback!
