    Lopes' setup

    So, my question is what is Lopes' bike setup?

    That is: fork, shock, wheels, and tires?

    Is it the Mojo's ability or the rider?

    If it is the Mojo, dude I'm gettin one tomorrow and bomb down that trail just like my hero

    I say that with the right rider, and maybe a little luck the bike is capable of winning a downhill race. What else is there to say?
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Oh no, I'm pretty familiar with the Rock Shox product

    Was asking about the fork on Brian's bike - the blue Moj.
    Don't think it's a 55, I think it's a 66 ATA. Which is crazy, cuz that's a 140 to 160mm travel, 38mm stanchions fork. BIG.

    Can't wait for my SL!!!

    ahh... heh, you confused me by quoting my post - and I didn't read close enough. My bad.

    Wouldn't the 66 be unsuitable for a Mojo going up to 180mm unless you always run it reduced to 160mm? Unless Ibis has already made a personal version of the Mojo that can take a 66 happily.

    However, it certainly looks like a 66.

    Yeah, and that looks like 160mm.
    You get the stiffness of the 66 (which is AWESOME) at 160mm.
    The course didn't look too bad, so I think the 5.5" in the back and 6 and a bit in the front were ok.

    I am SOOOO hoping this will spawn a 7inch IBIS freeride bike. 7-7.5" travel... woo-hooooo.
    (just slightly different geo than the Moj)

    Run it with a Roco (WC w/ Ti spring) and a 66ATA (or Totem Air), around 32-35 pounds... holy crap...
    It would slay Whistler and totally ruin my plans to get the new VP Free...

    I said it first! [SIZE="3"]I'm the first in line Scot!!![/SIZE]


    (no better place to try that than the freeride heaven of Alberta and British Columbia, Canada...)

    Amazing Mojo

    not much ... hard to think about any other bike on the planet that climbs like a 3" XC and can win downhill in some capable hands

    The Mojo IS the ultimate allaround bike

    Just for perspective

    You can bomb down "that trail" on a hard tail. Heck, I've seen people fly down on a fully rigid. There are smooth lines through the rough sections and it's mostly steep single track so it ain't all that and the Mojo certainly can handle it, no problem.

    I echo others here and hope a longer travel bike results in this collaboration. A 7" Mojo Big Brother would be cool. I was sooo close to getting a 6 Point but the build quality just wasn't up to par with boutique manufacturers like Ibis or Pivot.

    You're right, and I think Lopes could win on any bike. That said, has there ever been a bike that excels at so many distinctly different disciplines as the Mojo? You could race cross county, downhill, and endurance on the same bike with slightly different set-ups!
    I'm unique, just like everyone else....

    You are also correct. I have not seen any other bike in the Ibis line up that is any more versatile but perhaps it is because the Mojo is the only full susser in the Ibis line of mtbs. If there were models with more travel, slacker angles, etc, I'm sure folks would use them accordingly.

    Derby was right!!

    I have only been monitoring the forum for a few months, but as I recall Derby who is on the forum a lot....was the fellow who said the Ibis could be used for downhill racing...to the dismay of others who said "no way"....Good call Derby.

    Trust me, Lopes would have won on pretty much any 5" travel bike.

    Most likely, but no other 5.5" travel bike could have turned around and climbed to the top keeping pace with a hardtail

    Would he be on a Mojo if GT did not drop him? If he stayed with GT would that mean GT makes better bikes?
