    Ordered a Pushed Monarch RT-AM today. I was skeptical at first but Darren really sold me on it after talking with him at length about them. I'll let everyone know how it rides soon enough.

    Hey, all you folks who ordered Push'd Monarch . . . did they give any recommendations for RT-AM vs RT vs RT3?

    RT3 vs RT-AM is a question of whether you really want a platform (propedal) or not for your riding. They are real happy with the RT-AM and think it's a good match for the HD. Always worth giving Push a call and talking through your riding with them. Have always found them extremely helpful.

    I ordered my Vivid over a month ago and am still waiting...
    Rock Shox needs to start pumping these things out so PUSH can get me my stuff.

    Hey guys! Mine got mine built already after 3 months of waiting! Here it is with a demo fork

    <a target='_blank' title='ImageShack - Image And Video Hosting' href='http://img522.imageshack.us/i/14901016209670790041081.jpg/'><img src='http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/3582/14901016209670790041081.jpg' border='0'/></a>

    Uploaded with <a target='_blank' href='http://imageshack.us'>ImageShack.us</a>

    I'm still confused which fork to take - 2011 160mm TALAS or the 180mm. I would be taking it to the park but I want to be able to take it on long rides as well. Is the 180mm overkill for the epics and trail rides whenever I'm not in the park?? Help please!! I have 4 days to decide!!

    fork

    Hey - I had a 160 Lyrix RC and added the 2 step. I would have gone 170, but then I could not get this with a 2 step. I use the travel adjust all the time, for example on Zen and Gooseberry where there is a lot of up and down, I had this in 115 mode. But then the day before I was on Jem and used the entire 160. I still think 170 is the best and wish there was a talus or 2 step 170 option.

    I plan on getting a 180 for next summer for the park, but after you add up the weight of the 180 fork, "park duty" rims and 2.5 tires, you will be over 32/33 lbs, and then your HD is not really a climbing bike. So the talus or 2 step on the 180 does not seem to make sense, at least to me.

    So in the end I have the 160 Lyrix RC with a 2 step, and will get a totem 180. I will run crests on the 160, with a set of light 2.2 tires with stans, and will run the flows on the 180 with a 2.5 minion, again with stans. So the XC set up will be ~27/28lbs, and the FR/Park set up will be ~32/33lbs.

    If you look at my posts from UT last week, you can see the 160 setting on Jem and the 115 setting on Zen.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks man! Yeah I guess I'd probably go for the 160 since 180 might be too much for everything else other than park.

    Ordered mine Monday and it arrived today. I am not able to pick it up until this next Monday though. Stock X9 build but with Fox Talas upgrade. They weighed it and said it came in at 27.5lbs. I will post more pics after I pick it up. I plan on getting it in the dirt asap. This will be a great replacement for my santa cruz blur.

    The pic they sent me of it today.

    yes, I waited a week for it. I ordered it from a shop here in the bay area. I definitely plan on changing pedals, the pic is in the shop. I still havent had a chance to pick it up yet. I pick it up tomorrow morning though.

    Whaaaaaat! My envy knows no bounds! I am in my 7th week of waiting for my matte black HD 140. You're gonna love that bike. Thought about putting a dropper seatpost on there?

    I definitely plan on adding a nice dropper seatpost on there eventually. I just did not add it to the order due to lack of funds. I sold off my road bike the other day to make up for the difference in money I was lacking. Honestly I am foaming at the mouth because I can not pick it up until tomorrow morning.

    Here is another pic... its snowing like crazy so I won't be able to really test her out for probably a month or so Will say that coming from a MKI nomad size large (which they changed to a size medium on the MKII) the HD XL feels like a BIG bike.

    I'm curious to hear yours, and everyone else review of the RT-AM. Did Darren feel this shock would match up as well with your fork as the RT -Plus?

    Just wondering why everybody seems to be going with the RT-AM over the RT-3? Isn't Low speed compression mostly for dialing out pedal movement? Isn't easier to just flip a lever for pedaling and climbing, and flip it off for bombing? I have always felt adding LSC on the DH made the shock harsher. Or is there some performance advantage?

    Thanks!

    I dunno, they ended up sending me a RT-3, I'm not gonna complain with an accidental free upgrade, I'll just leave the platform off most of the time.

    mrnicolas - I have a pair of cage pedals on my HD and actually like these over the platforms everywhere except N*, where they got quite beat up on the rocks. But the cages are much lighter, especially on rides like Big Boulder, Chimney Rock, Jems, etc.My friend bent his hanger on Gooseberry, and we were only able to bend it back by leveraging it my cage pedals, just lucky. Which size is you HD? You will want to swap the big ring for a bash ring and maybe get a chain guide. And when you pick this up, ask the LBS to convert to Stans, I have the Nevegals on the Flows with no issues.

    Swapped the drivetrain on the Mojo HD from a 1x9 to a 1x10 drivetrain today (mainly to get the 11-36 vs 11-34)

    While I was at it finally got to fitting the down tube guard, neat piece of kit and good idea.

    I am definitely looking to get a set of platforms so I can play around with this thing. I got a new set of shimano pedals for it since i wanted to keep the xtr pedals on my gary fisher, they are old xtr 747 pedals from 1997 so it was time to update.

    Luckily the bike came converted to tubeless w stans. I am stoked on that, this is my first bike with tubeless. I fully plan on buying some nevegals for this bike sometime in the future. I loved them when they were on my blur. Soon.

    Now the good part, having this bike in my hands is amazing. This bike is so much more bike than I am used to. I love it. It climbs very well and it decends like a rocket! I unfortunately did not take any pics on the first ride I went on with it. I definitely got it nice and muddy. It is more than I ever expected.

    My HD140- real workaday build, sorry but no jewellery on it. No pretty picture, either.

    Swapped most of the componentry straight across from my regular Mojo. Only had a couple of hours on it, but things are looking good.
    Setup needs some work though- the old Mojo ran really nice straight from the box, but I think I'll need to have to put a bit of effort into
    the shock settings on this one, especially for the climbs and flat.

    She's heading straight into a muddy, gritty UK winter, so I'll be able to post a meaningful long term durability report in a week or two.

    I dunno man . . . looks like a pretty picture to me!

    What differences are you finding between the travel on your regular mojo and your HD140? I'm curious what shock setting changes you are considering.

    A couple pics from a short ride I did today. This thing really is awesome.





    The quote on the plaque on the bench is a Ghandi qhote "there is more to life than increasing its speed" What is great is that there is a great short downhill section you hit right after this bench.

    Went by the shop and this was waiting on me. Could load the picture on the site because it said the file was to big. Mojo HD 140, will be built up with 2011 XTR, Fox Float and some existing parts off a Mach 5.

    Hd140 X-Large

    I had to wait awhile for this, and everyone's posts here helped with the wait, so thanks! And to return the favor....here is the result. Basically wanted a Mojo SL for XC/AM rides.....the HD XL frame felt better and stiffer and worth the weight penalty to me. 2 x 10 is sweet.....liking it. The 750mm bar is really frikin wide, but I am liking that too.

    MAZSPEED you bike is awesome, the XTR-2011 looks fantastic on the clear black!
    I just got my HD frame (clear black - small), built-up for next year....
