    C&D'sDad must need the money for C and D. Hope everything works out for him.

    I doubt if he want's to sell it. If going for another bike he'd keep those great components and wheels and sell the frame only. The price seems low. It should sell fast.

    Good luck C&D'sDad...

    Good price, but with a non transferable warranty. How is your bike holding up as far as nicks and scratches? I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on a new frame. I like the new foam colored one.

    There is just a chip or two from chain slap in the first few rides before I protected it. I've protected it with padding for chain slap and two layers of tape under the downtube and I have not wrecked yet on the Mojo (partly because it handles so good and I'm mostly riding familiar trails near home).

    The warrantee probably doesn't apply past the original owner, but I imagine the very low cost crash replacement pricing would apply to any owner with exchange of the broken frame pieces.

    BTW, this bike is drawing constant attention from other riders now, seems like everyone recognizes it as I ride by and if I'm stopped for any time someone always asks about it. Fortunately I like chatting it up and have nothing bad to say about it, quite the opposite.

    My previous ride the Intense Tracer for 5 years was not easy to replace. I test rode nearly every new and older design that came out during that time and was tempted to go to longer travel VPP, but I just wasn't willing to accept even slightly less suspension quality as the Tracer version of Horst link, especially having ridden the dw-Link when first introduced. The Wolf Ridge Whyte design was also tempting, but it was noticeably heavier and some riders complained of flex. The 575 and Moto-Lite are also great rides and light. The Mojo was the first with the clearly superior dw-Link light weight and handling balance done right. I met Tom and his wife at Sea Otter last year and questioned their commitment to the investment in Ibis. I wanted to be sure Ibis would live more than a year or two before being sold to some secondary market. And they seemed genuinely interested in taking the Ibis investment long. And the Mojo looked even better in person than in pictures. So I know it was the bike that could replace the half pound heavier Tracer without any compromise. The only consideration was to wait until now to see what Iron Horse would do with the MKiii and the rumored 6Point. Now having seen that the Mkiii and 6Point production bikes came in heavier than promised (the production 6Point with air shock is 2.5 pounds heavier than the Mojo), and priced about the same as the Mojo with the same build levels. I have absolutely no regrets.

    What brand of tape did you end up using? How many mm thick is it?

    Just FYI- the guinness foam comes out a little more yellow-y than I thought. Still gorgeous, still happy with my selection, but just a little different than I had expected. That said, it's still the color I'd have chosen.

    Why I'm selling

    It's not because of C&D, the only reason I'm selling it is because I just figured after a few rides that I prefer coil shocks and Aluminum frames. I loved the Mojo but around here where I'm from there are alot of rocks and it just made me a little worried about the carbon frame that's all. I ended up purchasing the Foes XCT 5 with the Curnutt XTD ti and although it climbs great it is a tad on the heavy side 29 lbs. All in all the Mojo was excellent I would reccomend it I'm just a little skeptical with the carbon frame and the rocks around here.

    The tape most of us have been using is

    http://www.findtape.com/product173/I...fo=Film%2bTape


    I am not sure of the thickness? I can tell you it weighs 2.7 grams per foot!

    In regards to the fear of the Mojo frameset. I ride in very rocky terrain and have landed on rock quite a few times. All that has happened is the the clearcoat gets chipped or just a minor ding into the carbon fiber. A bit of fingernail polish fixes that. Use the tape in any spot you think will get dinged pretty regularly and then all that happens is the tape peels a bit. My rear triangle is pretty much covered with tape as is the bottom of the downtube.

    I just used some cheepo hardware store 2 inch black plastic tape, 2 layers under the down-tube to protect from front wheel spray.

    And I found a roll of 1 inch clear 3M "Upholstery Repair" tape at a Kragan Auto Parts store for under $5, which I'm using for the more visible cable rub areas.

    Good to hear C & D didn't need the money.

    My large Mojo with coil shock and fork is 30 lbs with pretty light MutanoRaptor 2.4 tires. Thereís not much I could lighten to lose more than about a pound at great expense.

    I'm a bit paranoid around rocks too. I was thinking of fabricating some small plastic frame sliders like my road bike has ('02 Yamaha R1), which have saved the faring from scratches and much worse damage twice for me from low speed tipovers (donít ask!).

    If a bicycle were to have frame sliders I could be pretty effective if they projected from the axles and seat clamp. The pedals and handlebars would also act as protection. But they couldnít protect from the edge of a sharp large rock.
