    Converting steel Mojo to SS/Disc + repaint.

    I have a Mojo frame kicking around, I think it's from the last year of production of the "real" Ibisis.

    I want to convert it to disc brakes, and tentatively have Bernie Mikkelson put the sliding rear drops similar to what kona uses so I can run it SS.

    How much of a travesty is this?

    Where should I take it in the Bay Area to get it re-powder coated to the original color (this is happening regardless of other things I might do to it)?

    Sycip does a great job powder coating frames and I'm sure could apply original decals back on the frame if you get them from chuck ibis.

    The concept sounds great.

    Bernie uses D & D paint, I think, which is great--have one of their paint jobs on a 18 year old road bike and it still looks new. But I'd leave the Mojo alone. If you want to go ss, get the White Industries hub. Do you really need discs in the Bay Area? My $.02...

    I don't *need* discs here, but I don't plan on staying here for too much longer, and most likely will wind up somewhere wetter by far.

    Mojo Singlespeed

    I welded some Sub11 horizontial dropouts on mine. I kind of wish the ENO was out back then, there are times I regret doing that. It would still be nice to build it back up as a geared bike. As for disc I wouldn't hesitate about having them put on. I'm still running V's on it and every other bike I own has disc. That's the one thing I hate about the bike.

    The place I took it to have the powdercoat done, had graphics for the Ibis image. I would imagine that most powdercoat specialists that deal in bike stuff would be able to get those images. The image was clearcoated over, so no need to worry about scratches, like the old ones.
