    Mojo Complete Bike Weights

    First of all, Ibis communications is great. I sent an email to Ibis at 10:00 at night and had a reply before 8am the following morning. From the owner himself.

    I asked about the weights of their complete bike builds. I thought the info might be useful (and I'd like to see if you have the same build and have similar weights). I assume these weights are without pedals:

    Here are some actual weights we just compiled. Real bikes sitting in our shop:
    Mojo w/WTF-XTR kit: approx. 10.7 kilo
    Mojo w/WTF-XX kit: approx. 10.6 kilo
    Mojo w/XT kit: approx. 11.3 kilo
    Mojo w/X9 kit: approx. 11.8 kilo
    Mojo w/SLX kit: approx. 12.0 kilo
    subtract 300g for Mojo SL
    These are all either L or M bikes. The weight difference between the two is small, so we say approximately. Also the bikes will vary frame to frame a little bit, a result of the manufacturing process.


    It was also nice to know that he's fairly flexible about mixing parts from different build kits.

    My large SL XT build with m770s attached, CB Iodines and Nevegals, and an RPL came in right under 25 pounds the day I brought it home. Everything else was right off the parts pick list.

    My medium SL weighs in at 13.03kg (weighed in bike shop yesterday)

    Mojo medium SL
    Cane Creek IS110 headset
    2010 Manitou Minute 140 20 mm TA
    Wheels - CK hubs with Flow rims and 2.2 Rubber Queens run tubeless
    X0 shifters
    X0 medium cage rear mech
    XTR front mech
    Chris King BB
    Raceface Deus crankset
    SRAM PG990 cassette
    KMC X9 SL chain
    Time carbon pedals
    Gravity Dropper mulit 1:4 seat post with remote
    Sunline V-One OS 745 mm bar
    Gore ride on cables
    Formula K24 disc brakes

    I guess I could forgo the GD seat post and put on lighter wheels and out the Easton carbon bar back on to drop it below 13.0 kg.

    That sounds a touch heavy to me, there is always some difference in the scales! My build is below, pretty similar to yours!!

    I reckon the carbon bar and seat post make up a lot of the difference. But I wouldn't change the GD as I got to used to riding with it on my previous bike[ Heckler] and the terrain here in Wales [UK] warrants it. Definitely pedals light

    That also includes front crud guard plus Steve Peat front fender type guard.

    Mine started at circa 12kg - large Mojo with XT, TALAS 32 RLC 9mm QR, RP 23, Race Face Next SP and bars, Mavic 717/XT hubs, 2.0 H Pythons and Avid J 7.

    Now it is maybe 13.4kg with CB 75 mm remote dropper seat post and tubeless 2.35 High Rollers. Next move will be more solid wheels rather than new fork, 15mm TA etc. Although the frame will handle bigger forks and more solid axles, I am going to PUSH (eqiv) the fork and maybe go to 150/130/100mm using my current 140mm TALAS 2008. The local LBS can do the conversion. I think stiffer wheels will provide a big improvement and a cheaper one than as my current XT hubs are in great shape.

    Next weight maybe 14kg with greater rotating mass, but the bike is far too good for a light build. Don't think light for your Ibis Mojo. Think what you want to do with it. Chances are with a heavier build you will be able to do more fun things winh the one bike you need (OK - I) need in your life

    27lbs/12.3kg (pedals on) AM build. It was 25lbs/11,4kg (pedal on) before rebuilding, and I must say the bike is a whole different animal now, way better for everything - ok, a bit, only abit really, heavier to push uphill, but that is a compromise I'm taking with no regret. Mojos are meant to be build tough, now I see.

    22.95 lbs

    Medium SL

    Lefty Carbon 130pbr (saved me a pound - and much stiffer than my Fox)
    XTR build
    Stans wheels
    4Ti Eggbeaters

    Just swapped out a bunch of bolts to Ti which dropped it down under the 23lb mark, still waiting for the Ti frame bolt kit.

    I'm thinking I can get to 22lbs even with my Stans race wheels, SCRUB rotors and race tires...

    First of all, you've got a heavy seat post, so you will never be able to achieve some of the weights posted in this thread. The tires seem to be pretty heavy and the Thomson stem is not especially light (although it's very a nice piece of equipment).

    Heavy tires can add a good pound or more to your bike. Are you running big tires or tubeless? Maybe getting some smaller Nobby Nicks or Rocket Rons will contribute to get down the weight. Also look for the Ignitors 2.1 Exception series, they are quite light. Your stem is just a bit heavy, but hardly you'll get the strengh/weight ratio you have on a Thomson on another stem. I'm using it and mine weighs around 180g.

    On the seatpost, it's heavy, but damn it's handy! Only swap it if you think having a regular seatpost will do for you. I use the Joplin on my bikes, and I cope with the extra weight in favor of the telescopic seatpost. But yeah, another half pound is shaved if you go Thomson.

    I'll go a bit off topic here, but one big upgrade you may want to get in the future is the fork. Soon Fox will ship the newest Floats and TALAS 32 with 15QR. Weight-wise they are pretty the same as yours, but they will improve stiffness and steering precision. The 15QR is a big improvement over the simple QR. I know you asked about weight but your bike already has all the good stuff, you can go crazy light, but them maybe you'd be missing the point on your bike. Check the tires first. They may be what is giving your bike the extra pound. The rest is just fine.

    My setup at 27 lbs:

    Mojo SL medium white
    Fox Float RLC 15QR 150mm
    ZTR FLOW/ HOPE PRO2/ DT COMP spokes
    Hope QR skewer rear
    Thomson stem and seatpost
    Ritchey WCS handlebar
    Elixir CR brakeset
    Hope float rotors 183/160 with Shimano 180 PM adapter front
    Noir crankset
    X-0 triggers and rear D.
    PC-991 hollowpin chain
    PG-990 cassette
    XT front D.
    Crank brothers Acid 2 pedals
    Cane Creek 110 headset
    SDG Bel Air Saddle

    Will test a set of Cobalts next week and see as they do compared to my current burly hoops. The weight will probably drop to 26 lbs. Will probably get a XT cassette over the SRAM too.

    Switch pedals (check out the new Egg Beaters), perhaps a lighter seat and post and an Easton carbon handlebar should lose you some weight.

    ahhhh, the pedals. Kinda one of those things you forget about. The seat and post have been bugging me for a while but i can't decide if I want to go carbon and shed weight or go up in weight with an adjustable. Decisions, decisions.
