    Are the Iodine Wheels are available with 12mm in the rear? Cause you can see them often on the Mojo HD....

    Can't decide on groupo, X9 or XT, pretty much same build kit otherwise. It would be nice to mix it up but have to settle on whole groupo, except for Formula "The Ones". Never had SRAM before and was thinking of giving it a go, pretty much same price either way.

    Some quick opinions before pulling the trigger...

    I've been a shimano man since the 90's but my newest is coming in with SRAM. Too many shop wrenches locally with SRAM on their own bikes to ignore. They most all claim the shifting to be faster/crisper. We shall see.

    Iodine wheels come with a rear quick release, but you can buy a pair of 12mm adapters that come on the Opiums for about $20.00 from Crank Bros. I bought a set for my HD and got them in about a week.

    If you get them directly from Ibis with your HD, they already come in 12mm. Otherwise, if you already have the wheels, you have to order the adapter from CB.

    Any idea if you can upgrade one of the two HD builds with these and how much extra it would be?

    Nevermind, forgot its right on the site.

    Ibis gets Iodines straight from Crank Brothers with the 12mm Maxle. Not to be a dick, but this has been discussed before. "Search" is your friend.

    But I've heard that there is an option for that 12mm axle as well. So everybody can change their Iodine to a 12mm axle.

    Short cage. How tall are you? The XL is huge.

    How huge exactly are we talking? I've been able to demo a L but not a XL. The L had at least a 100mm stem, maybe 110, and the setback seatpost of a Joplin4. Riding it, to me the size felt fine but the experts at the shop fitting me said to go XL, based on a riding position with knee over pedal spindle(would have had to slide seat up a little), and back and arms basically making a 45 degree angle, more to it than this but you get the idea.

    According to them, the best fit with a 70 or 80mm stem which is what this type of bike should be speced with, would be the XL. This will be my first full suspension and I've only ever ridden 18.5-19" cross-country hardtails where I was used to being stretched out with a long stem.

    I'm trusting their decision but have been paranoid as we haven't been able to fit on the XL. Doesn't seem like a huge difference from L to XL, 0.8" of an increase in TT, 0.6 in HT, 2" at the ST but only 0.4" at SO.

    BTW, I'm 6'2" with limbs, I don't know, proportioned right for my height anyway.

    The XL does not look very big to me, looks pretty similar to the regular mojo which is on the smaller side for a XL as well.

    Kee over Pedal spindle...we are talking about a little Freerider and not a Road Bike buddy. This sort of bike has to make FUN. I don't want a stretched out position like on a XC. I am 6' and thinking about getting a medium one instead of a large. Maximum stem lenght will be 50-60mm for me and nothing more.
    I like to have a playfull bike which I can throw around under my body. I don't want the bike riding me, I want to ride the bike active.
    But I often see people on the trails with to big frames in my mind. With 6'2" you are a bit bigger than me but not that big. I have a friend who is 6'6" tall. What should he ride? An XXL?
    But it's all about preferences and feeling great and confidence on a bike. So everybody should buy what feels good to him.

    Sorry, I should correct this statement to avoid confusion. They didn't actually say it should be 70-80 but MAX 80mm.

    L or XL, I've been going nuts trying to sort this out.

    I just missed that in my first looking at your post.
    If you are used to ride a 18,5-19" Hardtail (which is about what I would use when riding a Hardtail) than an XL would be way to large! Your riding position is totaly different on a long travel full-suspension setup. Maybe you have to get used to it to feel confident but you won't regret. So take the smaller size if you ask me.
