    Differences in Mojo 2008-2012?

    I'm shopping for a Mojo. From what I read, the design was unchanged from around 2008-2012. So no real difference between 2008 and 2010 Mojo?

    Here's my Ti Mojo (size XL)

    The only significant changes I'm aware of would be a Mojo vs Mojo SL, SL being introduced in early '08 IIRC and being sold alongside the std Mojo for a while. The SL is lighter and slightly stiffer thanks to different carbon layup and no aluminum used for headset inserts. There have been significant changes and improvements to both the upper and lower links during that time, so if you're looking at used bikes there will be advantages to one that's had a recent link update. You should check bearings on anything you're considering, or just budget for new links/bearings from the Ibis store. The rear lower link bearings are usually the first to need replacement.

    Love the ti mojo! I've got one from '98...That's the Mag21 "SL Ti", right? From that, the canti's, and original XTR, I'm assuming yours is a few years earlier. Niiiice...that was as "top of the line" as a mtb could possibly be back then. I had a '93 steel mojo with pretty much an identical built, except my Sycros post was alum, not ti. I often wish I still had that bike.....killer sunburst fade paint job.

    Shop around for sure, people are dumping their 26" bikes because you can't ride them anymore and 26" tires suck (haven't you heard? it's all over the internets )

    I picked up a fully loaded HD for less $$$ than what I see regular Mojo's selling for...

    I would not be surprised if the mojo had unannounced changes to frame layup over the years. Earlier models seemed to have rear triangles cracking on the short vertical piece on the chain stay. I have not seen later models have that issue. Who knows what else may have been beefed up as well.
    Those who know, ride a Mojo AND a Mojo HD.
