    Hey, Guys Looking For A Large Moj (Not SL)

    I just happened by this I know anyone here posting is probably a good home for it. Just reading the ad it seems like a trustworthy person only sold 2 things before but you can sometimes just read the ads and tell it's a normal person so it looks okay to me. (okay edit)
    Anyway hope it helps someone.

    That listing is mine. I loved the bike to death and rode it non stop, but the knee pain i was having (due to poor fitting) couldn't be resolved and i decided to sell it. What furthered my decision to sell was that after I did a test ride on a pivot, i just felt that it was a hair better for the riding here in AZ. I would keep both bikes, but the old lady was rather angry when she saw that i now had 3 bikes in my stable.

    The bike is still in really good condition and the Bontrager Wheels are only about 4 months old.

    Both prior items sold were bikes as well. Other than that, i dont have a need for E-bay.

    So you think it was too small ? The knee pain thing sounds like a saddle pedal spindle position or shoe, cleat pedal or something else. Wow I wish I was a size large I would help you out. I've heard the pivots are going to be great bikes once they figured out the valving on the shocks etc.

    I know its a seat position issue, just couldnt resolve it. Even tried a setback seatpost, which seemed to change the way the DW-link was intended to function on these bikes. The cockpit just seemed too cramped.

    As far as the pivot, i feel the suspension is perfect. It definitely is not as plush as the IBIS, but out here i dont think that is a big issue. If one was trying to compare the two, i think it would come down to what sort of riding one does.

    Good point on the ride use difference. The lighter Mojo is more versatile for most riders doing long rides, long climbs and descents, XC to some DH racing and big air stunts. I've also ridden the Mach-5 and it is very rock crawling oriented with its higher BB, and slacker seat tube keeping weight low, and more standing sprint linear rear suspension feel. There is no doubt the Pivot bikes are designed at the highest quality for rocky desert riding.
