    Mojo HD Picture & Build Thread-img-20130927-00003.jpg

    Reading these questions about tires got me thinking about my updates since last year. I'm running dual 2.4 Mountain Kings Protection now. Almost as big as the HD, better clearing of mud, I like how they handle cornering better, and they are $30 cheaper.... I dabbled with the 2.2 and 2.4 X-King on the rear, but ultimately it's simply too little tire for me and for the conditions out here.

    Other updates are a Pike (holy awesome), SixC cranks, 50mm Thomson stem, Easton grips. Went from a Zee derailleur to a medium cage SLX with a direct mount hanger. I like the better chain control the SG provides, but I find it less crisp than the SS. I think it'll be replaced with another SS.

    Overall, after a year, I'm still loving this bike and pushing it's boundaries... it kicks serious ass.

    Nice build. How is the enve holding up so far?

    Thanks mojo09! Wheels are holding up better than any other I've run in 24 years. I've bottomed out the tires many a time with rims pounding rocks, but no signs of distress. Rocks slamming into the sides, and other than a few scuffs, no problem. After 10 months/1600 miles of riding, enduro racing, etc. they are perrrrrfectly true. Haven't had a broken or even a loose spoke. Now if I can just get my riding buds to stfu about how I made such a big mistake investing in yesterday's 26 wheel size, I'd be golden.

    @ Rob: Been contemplating on getting one but the price is holding me back I'm really not sure if it is worth the upgrade. Good to know that it's holding up pretty good for you, though.

    HI all,
    I recenetly decided I was going to build my dream bike, and immediately bought an Ibis HD frame. now I'm on the hunt to find the pieces I want for my puzzle..
    First I want to get a decent fork. I ride aggressive AM, and these are my choices:
    1. Rockshox pike 160
    2. Marzocchi 55 RC3 EVO Ti (170mm)
    3. 36 Talas 160

    What do you think? Im afraid the Marzocchi will be a bit heavy (~2.5kg).. but it looks as a decent choice for the aggressive ride.
    Thanks

    I've had all three and think Pike wins hands down. Marz was nice, but was heavy and sucked some of the flickability out of the bike. Also had annoying sticking problem where it didn't want to move until a bit of weight was put on it, then the seals would break free. Talas was the worst ever.

    I just wish the pike came in 20mm axle options......can't stand having to change wheels when they are perfectly fine. I have 160 RC3 and whilst a touch heavier, is awesome

    +1 on the lack of 20mm for the pike.

    I needed up selling my talas and went for a float instead. Honestly, service it like the Fox recommends and it's a buttery fork. But you must have the kashima coating

    Thank you all,
    I have another question about the gears.
    I cant decide between two sets of gears:
    1st:
    double crankset XT (38/24), 175mm. cassete 11-36 with rear derailleur Shimano XTR M986 shadow

    2nd:
    single crankset XX1 (34), 175mm. cassete 10-42 with rear derailleur Sram XX1.
    (This is pritty much the same gear ratios as the previews choise, due to the 10-42 cassete. my only problem is that I prefer the XTR rear derailleur but it has only 10 speed, where I need 11).

    Thank you!

    Well I came from 36-24 front with 11 - 36 rear cassette to 33 single chaining with the same cassette rear and now to XX1 with 32 chainring. I like the XX1 because the simplicity, strong and precise shifting over any condition and not having to mess with a front der. For my riding style and zones I prefer the XX1it fit the long climbs and many step zones, for flat riding is not the best option, the max speed is @ 33km/h at 90spm so I take the flats very calm but climbing, trail and downhilling is my weapon of choice. All depend your style and zone, also you can shift chainring and adapt the bike easily.

    Regards.

    You said you had a 11-36 cassette, right?
    or did you change it to 10-42 XX1's?

    Not sure if you're joking here, but that is quite a purchase to just buy what the dude at the bike shop said was good! Fortunately for you, you scored a killer rig - nice bike!

    I worked at a shop for a while, one day a guy walked in, asked what the most expensive bike we carried was, which at the time happened to be the SLR with full XX. he then proceeded to order one for himself and one for his wife. Something tells me m77ranger knows how good of a ride he has.

    Lol, I did matching Ibis Bow Ti's with full XTR back in the 90's as well. Guy told us they were for riding to Starbucks on Saturday mornings with his wife! It was a week after he sold his company to Home Depot for $45M.

    I work at the local ibis dealer so I kind of know how space age and nerdy my bike is. Specs: Plastic ibis frame. Plastic easton wheels. Plastic XX1 clickers crankers and derillers. XTR race squeezers/stoppers (ice-tech) Pike porkerForker. Chromag bars (to keep it real!) BMX grips.

    My last bikes were transition blindsides and coverts. Punk rock bikes.

    This HDR is a sweet bike but it takes itself way to seriously. I'm trying to keep its ego in check with stupid stickers.

    This thing is a total shralper.

    If that's directed to me and the Serotta road bikes, it was somewhere just south of $14,000.... at the time it was pretty much the maximum you could possibly spend on two bikes..... Not even close these days, with every high end brand having something approaching $10k in the liineup. On the one hand, it seems stupid and obscene, but on the other hand if somebody walked into a shop and wanted to buy a bike like mine off the floor it wouldn't be cheap either....no where near $10k, but probably over 5, so who am I to judge.

    Bike retail in Palo Alto in the '90's was a trip, though... we had well known high tech CEO's coming in and buying all kinds of stuff... a pair of top end S-Works hardtails that were to be the "yacht bikes" for one to keep on his 120 ft cruiser so they'd have bikes to ride around town on when they were in various ports. Lots of social climber junior execs trying to keep up with their bosses.... it was road cycling, not golf, where business got done in that time and place. Good time to be a boutique retailer. Steve Jobs (RIP) came in to buy a pair of bikes for riding around woodside with his wife, and I thought "Oh goody...here we go, maybe we can break that $14k record sale." ....nope, just a couple of $500 Specialized hybrids..totally appropriate and modest. He struck me as a really down to earth guy.....definitely did not "nerd out" over bikes.


    Aaaaanywhoooo...major threadjack.... maybe this subject warrants a thread of it's own.

    If I were him I would have done the exact same thing.....except the Bow Ti's would have seen FAR MORE than the local Starbucks!

    Holy Stack Height, Batman!

    Cool pink fenders though - I like the flair...let us know how you like the coils - and I'm curious about the weight of this build.

    Hey, it's not pink! Pink is for girls, when it's on a man's bike - it automatically becomes FUXIA.

    This fuxia stuff was the only available at home, when the rains started. I needed mud guards and ass-flap ASAP, so here it is...

    Concerning the weight - total of 15.6 kg (I believe it's 34 lbs or so) with these tires and a firm coil front and a 350 X-Fusion coil rear. My previous setup with DHF Minion 2.5 front and DHR Minion 2.35 rear (plus 900gr to this weight) and with extra firm coil front and 400 coil rear (plus 200gr to this weight) was around 16.6-16.7 kg in total.

    Actually never thought of it, but it makes sense...

    Concerning the coils on my Mojo HD - I was looking for buttery smooth performance, with an excellent small bumps damping. I don't mind the weight and bobbing. What I got for now is what I wanted, i.e. excellent small bumps damping almost without bobbing (it's really marginal), but yet outstanding big jumps and bumps damping. Due to high and low compression adjustment it is really possible with X-Fusion to find that sweet spot, where all of your suspension dreams come true.

    Finally got my Sweep mounted up. Took the down time to also clean and install a Frameskin kit on the front triangle and key spots on the rear (waiting on the 650b rear). REALLY impressed with the fork so far, came in at 1775 for the DLA version cut to 7.25". Ride wise it feels just like the velvet (set at 140) with a bit more linear feel. I'm also impressed with the lack of stiction in the DLA unit. My old TALAS needed allot of time for the seals to break in and even then it wasn't quit as nice as my old float. This is nice and smooth right out of the box. A/C varies based on DLA setting and while there are only 2 "detents" for the travel setting I can match the travel pretty much anywhere from 130-160mm. Weight is 26lbs 15 oz. without pedals and lower guard. Weight with pedals (Candies w/ ward spindles) and lower guard is 27.4 lbs.


    Anticipate getting back under 27 when I go tubeless/install my LB carbon hoops/Hope hubs and trim my stealth/brake cables.

    Well, 8 months and many, many miles later, still loving her!!

    26" , 27.5" 29 whatever! Contrary to all the hype, this bike will hammer no matter what shoes you put on her!

    Made a few adjustments, got my dropper back from SRAM. When I took that last pic it was being serviced It's held up great ever since though. But of course that added a little weight




    Dropper allowed me to shorten the stem a bit. Since then, also got a great deal on some Carbon Havens (with the updated hubs) Since 26" wheels are worthless now LOL! They replaced the Mavic's. They've held up really well too! No issues at all. Also did the ECT upgrade on the the Formula brakes.



    And yeah, triple ain't going anywhere Comes in handy on rides out here.



    Looking forward to many more miles with this bike now that we've bonded.

    It seems a sl-r might better suit you. I've always loved the vitamin P though.

    Nah, the ability to swap out travel comes in handy in places like Santa Cruz etc…
    I go back and forth between travel & tires depending on trails. Easy swap, takes minutes.

    HD is EXTREMELY flexible. You don't need to overbuild this bike

    There's a reason why the HDR has the travel it has. (see the *real* dedicated 650b Ibis thread) If people want a downhill bike they should look elsewhere. It's a logical extension of the HD's original design.

    A great all around do everything bike equally at home on jumps, 45mph fire road downhills, single track and epic rides. It's up to you to make the tweaks to make the bike work for you. I rode my friends SL-R for a several weeks but these HD's were way more flexible. Especially if you're riding a different range of trails. Don't get me wrong, I liked the SL-R too as I like my 29er (especially on longer rides) but their performance envelope is a little narrower.

    Very nice build indeed, mate, with emphasis on performance!
    How do you like those 35mm Chromag bars & stem combo? Any noticeable improvement over carbon bars?

    How does this DAKINE blanket work for you? Do you get pressure signs on the rear door of the truck?

    Slick build Maverick, built to shred up and down! why on earth would you even think of a Pivot mach 6 to be your "one" bike :P
    I dig the 35 as I have the Easton version on mine in aluminum. Thinking of maybe switching to the carbon one to save some weight but heard it was crazy stiff?

    Cheers

    Always been a Chromag fan, bars are actually carbon, I went this way to maintain or add stability to an already amazing stable setup, but the Carbon 35mm seems to take a bit of the edge off for some comfort on the longer rides, really loving the feel. The stem is a work of art, love it.

    Cheers, not noticed any pressure signs but also not worried, tailgate has done some hard yards, not trashed but also if it gets knocked around in time will re paint it anyways so for me not so much an issue, if new I might take it off regularly, keep it clean, love the pad though its very well made, just awesome and its Dakine!

    Cheers Ice

    For me the Chromag is stiff but still gives ride comfort, its weird but is really nice, I had Easton 35 std on my V10 and love the stability gains, so loved it when Chromag introduced this, plus they have nice options. Really loving it, very impressive finish and construction.

    Re the M6.
    I wanted to see what the 27.5 hype was really all about and was hoping to get as close a comparison between my bikes all round capabilities and the demo, unfortunately the demo really fell short in quite a few areas.

    So really unsure how to grade it or comment on it, it was a full XX1, Fox 2014 Float X, Float 34 ctd, medium, with a decidedly poor wheel set as stock build.

    One thing I can say is the 2014 Float fork was as big a disappointment as my 13 model, either journos are paid to say good things about it or just so used to what adds up to average suspension at best, Im am at a loss for words how bad it was for me, the Float X was a huge improvement over the float CTD, but still sits way too low in its travel ( correct sag) I spent allot of time on setup, still uses too much travel for what is needed, but it felt like it had better control. Just not what Ive got used to or even close to my XF kit, it really is a wake up when you go back.

    I would really like to try an XF/Pike setup with carbon wheels, and also a HDR 130 with XF front n rear, to get a real sense of 27.5" I don't want to hear or read the hype from others, its just too unbalanced and no true consistent comparisons. Jury's still out on the M6 very popular here already and getting impressive results so dunno.

    But for 160mm hard charging, my HD feels fantastic, I can ride her all day and rip anything, the only limitations of speed distance, trails etc is the rider, they're are no excuses.

    It's a magic story.
    On Christmas day, i' ve this above my christmas tree:
    Seriously, in november, i' ve searching my new bike for 2014 season. I' haven't enough money to buy a new one. It was difficult to find an used one in France. After a little brainstorming: Who ride an ibis mojo Hd and perhaps can sell one after season?
    In france, ACC. So little mail to her. After discussing, a frame and a fork will make me happy... She's great and she permits me to realize my dream. This bike is so good, very efficient .
    Ps: sorry, i' ve prefered riding my bike rather going to school to learn english.

    Maverick005: What didn't you like about the new Fox fork?
    I got a 2014 Talas (160mm/26inch version) for my HDR and think it's great. Supple, good control. HUGE improvement over the 2013. Both the damper in the fork and the Talas feature itself, which I think now feels like the Float as the reviews have stated.

    ll

    Pretty much what I didn't like about the 2013, I also modded my 2013 so it was probably closer to what Fox did to the 2014 models anyway, for me they still sit too low in the travel at the proper sag for small bump compliance, I still feel the damper quality is lacking real support and control (rebound esp) no matter the setting in direct comparison it feels out of control, not something you are aware of if you have been riding one for awhile, bit when you switch to a dialled in XF for example its very obvious and scary.

    For me it might have something to do with ride style, preference, weight, but I always feel Fox is using too much travel at any given time in comparison to my Vengeance which rides high in its travel only uses whats required, with little compression adj, bike geo seems to be maintained regardless of elevation relative to the trail Im on.

    Its just superior in every way, its controlled on hits, g outs, but even when climbing you don"t need a CTD it still remains controlled no pogo, I find the same thing for my shock I just don't miss climb modes descend etc, the suspension just gets on with what it is supposed to do correctly, my Veng still has superior small bump compliance, tracks better, honestly back to back the difference is so clearly obvious you'd wonder why you put up riding a Fox suspension product for so long.

    Im not anti Fox, I hate dissing companies, but for far too long we have being paying high end prices for dampers from Fox that are for average riders, which is fine if thats reflected at the lower models its not, the tunes on the high end models are every bit as bad, most just don't know better, everyone here has ditched Fox for RS Pikes, that speaks volumes, I high rec people try XF or a Pike or even BOS, to buy a Fox then get a Push tune and just confirms my experiences, and adds extra cost, here in NZ a std Fox product is by far the most expensive out of all the other brands.

    A fork or shock today at the high end level should be tuneable enough to provide riders like us a high end ride, Im talking riders who push they're bikes hard, Im not a pro, but they're is a big difference in quality, Fox when comparing directly feels out of control, where as my XF feels in total control, its mind blowingly different, the rider becomes the issue you cant blame the suspension, on XF the faster you go the more controlled it is, if you can push it that far.

    Vengeance and vector HLR are way different than a ctd fox 34 and a ctd shock. Compare a fox 36 with a float x, that would be a better comparison.

    Still hard. Only fair to compare the Vengeance and Vector to something that works

    I also am a victim of industrial PR of Fox. Suffered for nearly a year with 2013 Talas, then was enlightened by the revelation of XF, and got myself a nice plush Vengeance and Vector, both coils. Happy as a puppy. Especially after treating them at Sheeep's (it's our outstanding version of Push, just better, I think).

He even makes rebuild and oil seal kits for all kind of shocks that allow to anyone with some technical sense to tune their suspension to Push level by themselves. Besides, he is a really nice person, which makes him more valuable.

    My issue now with Fox is really about their business conduct.
    The new units may well be a load better but for three or four years they would deny that there was an issue only to later issue a recall or statement talking about the new and improved next years models. Fair enough however Fox gear is expensive, customers deserve better. I t seems to me that the PR dept has been running fox for a while rather than engineering.
    The Vector air blows everything away that I have tried on this bike. And up front, the BOS Deville and Vengeance HLR Air are so demonstrably superior over fox 34's and 36s (coil and air) that it is almost embarrassing. I loaned my BOS to a mate on a fairly stock HD and he wouldn't give them back - forced me to sell them to him.
    So why am I down on FOX? Because we simply have not been given a fair deal on what are expensive premium products. The result is simple - look at the market traction that RS Pike has got and it would appear it is almost all at the expense of Fox

    The new units may well be a load better but for three or four years they would deny that there was an issue only to later issue a recall or statement talking about the new and improved next years models.

    Just took 4 weeks to get my buddies shock back from local importer due to shock losing all its dampening, std ctd shock, which was covered under warranty, good on them for sticking buy that even though it was just a month over the 1 yr period, issue was the time it took, 4 weeks no bike, same excuse I been hearing for last 2 years held up with back warranty issues on the Talas forks, just overwhelmed by it.

    Std LBS fix here is to offer Float internals upgrade, lol, my other ride buddy is getting his POS Talas 36 worst fork I've ever ridden on, redone this way, if it wasn't so cheap $250 we'd be ditching the whole thing faster than Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus.

    Only been telling him for 2 years it shouldn't work as bad as it does, and he gets this thing reserviced faster than Miley and Justin as well, btw, every ride I ask him I like a stiff feeling fork and you're 180lbs, I'm 200lbs and I couldn't ride that thing that stiff WTF, no wonder you crash so much, usual conversation on one of our rides, must add this has caused him a fairly aggravating shoulder injury that affects every ride, now I've made him faster running proper sag, still blows mid-stroke arse though, just have to keep him off a Vengeance or make him ride a 29er.

    This has probably been posted elsewhere and while these reviews are just a guide I don't take allot of stock on them to be honest, I like to try for myself, its interesting the tester if he had to buy either himself after riding on on the the toughest bike parks around Europe choose the Sweep. I personally love both these forks would love both haha.

    Thats the trail, loved that trail, used to swim the dog they're on my rides, Whitty is an awesome little network, very under rated by most Jaffas lol the Woodpoo die hards haha.

    Dont think it, do it, though starting to be more Jaffas here than Rotovegans, thats a worry! But we will welcome you buddy!
    what area ya thinking of, town belt or outta town with a lifestyle block for a pump track?

    Hi guys. Is there anybody with KS Lev seatpost? I need some help to make sure if it will be not to high for me. Could you please push the seatpost as low in the frame as possible and take the length of the Lev from the seatpost clamp to seat rails? And BTW, it would be good to know what's the travel of your Lev Thanks in advance.

    hi everyone,

    heres my new build in the black forest this weekend for the first uplift this year.

    2012 mojo hd 160 medium,
    cane creek db air cs,
    burgtec titanium offset shock bush,
    rockshox pike 160 with silk graphics inside out cos they looked bland,
    works components 1 degree headset,
    xt, x9, e thirteen gears soon to add a general lee cassette adaptor,
    all black 2014 ks lev 125,
    kash money race face atlas bars, ouri grips,
    zee brakes, xt discs with gold bolts,
    crossmax sx wheelset,
    muddy mary front, hans dampf rear tubeless.

    steering is a bit slow and wanders off at slow speeds since i put the works headset in, thinking maybe swapping the 50mm stem to a 40mm or something might sort the low speed issues.

    thanks for looking.

    Some awesome builds recently.

    I just rode my HD...a few miles on the roads to pick up our car at the dealership. A bit higher tire pressure, and a lot of curb, etc., hopping. Fun both off and on road!
