    The "Mixed Tapered" one is for forks with a tapered steerer tube.

    Hope this helps!

    thank you for both of you,

    if I understant well, i can use both of them with my 1.5 crownrace.
    one will affect the bottom bracket

    thank you again.

    pS: do you have the bottom bracket height please ?

    Pushing the BV RP23

I really don't think Push has anything to improve on anymore with the BV RP23. (I also happen to have a 2011 32 Talas150 Kashima as well, and in the past I had a couple 32 RLC 140 shocks pushed -- I wouldn't Push the new Fox cartridge forks either.)

    Fox seems to have caught up and overtaken Push's rebuilds, making their kits unnecessary as far as Fox products are concerned IMHO and experience, so you might want to reconsider and save your $.

    You overlooked one thing PUSH does that's not available on OEM and retail Fox shocks - custom tuning for weight and riding style. The BV RP23 may work great for you, but a rider who falls further outside of the standards Fox uses to set up stock suspension internals may not get the same results. Someone like that will still benefit from PUSH, Fox Protune, Suspension Experts, or some other company that will tune to exact weight and preference. Especially for a shock like the RP23 that has limited adjustability..

    you're right, Push does tune the RP23 for rider weight and riding style, apparently, that is, according to the info they request on the rebuild form; and I admit, I've tried to understand what it is exactly they claim to do with the valving to obtain this rider weight/style customization, without much success. I had my first shock (RP3 I think it was) Pushed about 6 years ago. I still can't figure out what they are actually doing - the claims are kept quite mysterious & proprietary - you won't find any detailed info or data anywhere explaining exactly what they do. Anyway, like I said, I found that the Fox 2011 BV RP23 was about as good as imaginable right out of the box, for me & my Mojo. I weigh around 155 with water & gear, and ride primarily very technical, rocky and rooty singletrack.)

    You may want to phone them. I had a great conversation with Eric at Push last week about shock options for the HD, their new RS offerings, and what they could do to improve the plushness of the RP23BV. I walked away with the understanding that they could remove the boostvalve, replace it with their high flow piston valve and then adjust the shim stack to get better oil flow all within the oil flow restrictions and cooling capabilities of the platform. Had a similar discussion on the Monarch RT-AM, RT-3 and Vivid Coil. Top notch customer service in my book.

    +1 on that. The way to get the best results from PUSH or any similar tuning company is to have a phone conversation with the techs and go into all the details of what you want from the shock. It's easier to convey all the nuances of what you want that way than in a short form, and the feedback from an experienced suspension tech can be useful in deciding what setup will work best for you.. I remember I asked for my Float R to be set up super plush in the first half of travel with minimal pedalling platform, then ramp up quickly towards the end to deal with really big hits. They went ahead and put in a large internal bottom-out bumper just like in the coil shocks to get the end stroke performance just right, and it worked like a dream.

    There was a post around here somewhere by Darren from Push saying that they are going to get their hands on an HD for testing. Probably best to give them some time to really tinker and dial things before giving them a shout, but when they're ready, excited to hear what they'll come up with.

    The new team issue PUSHd Vivid looks like the perfect shock for the HD. Throw an Obtanium coil on there and you've got yourself quite a setup. Match it up with one of the new 2011 Lyrik U-Turn coils w/ the DH damper and you're set.

    Talked with Push late last week and they used Subliminalshiver's (Chad) bike to get an understanding of the HD suspension curve. Worth giving them a shout to talk about what you want it to do but they really like the Vivid Coil on the HD and the Monarch RT-AM as an air option.

    Agree on this as Pro Pedal seems to be redundant on the Mojos so why not do away with it and have the option to adjust rebound AND compression. One thing I wonder about with the RT-AM, I'm assuming the internals would be simpler than a shock with PP. If so, I like the idea of that.

    Have you read this? http://www.pushindustries.com/2009/i...&product_id=30

    It says exactly what they do. Most of it is pretty self-explanatory, with the exception of the revalving (done through different shim stacks) but that's hardly a secret.

    The shims probably make the biggest difference in performance.

    I dunno, the high flow piston they put in the shocks seems pretty important as well, apparently the stock fox piston is quite restrictive, doesn't matter what you do to the shims, without proper oil flow you're not doing much with just changing shims.

    Lost a pound exactly by going 1x10 with XO shifter, med. cage rear derailleur, and XX 11-36 cassette. Also switched to a Thomson 50mm Stem and Easton Haven Carbon Bars. Bike is now at 29lbs.

    LOVE my Mojo HD

    Size: Medium
    Fork: Fox TALAS RLC 160mm Kashima
    Shock: Fox RP23 (Stock)
    Everything else: SRAM X-9 build kit
    Total weight 30.2 lbs

    Below is my bike in its native habitat...DEMO! It was near-perfect conditions today in DEMO: weather, trail, and riding buddies included.

    You may notice that my Mojo HD is not so matte...I applied helicopter tape on over 90% of the bike. It was a bit of a challenge to complete, but my dream bike is now practically bombproof!

    My Mojo HD has the 2011 SRAM X-9 3x10 setup. The X-9 setup shifts smoothly and quickly. No complaints whatsoever! The big ring up front and crank arms also have a bit of a paint scheme that compliments the HD paint nicely.

    I am considering removing the big ring up front and going to 2x10, but I want to get several more rides in on the HD before I change anything else on the bike.

    Just a quick question regarding the custom MRP guide available from Ibis: How quiet is it? The Mojo HD is on my short list, and I will be running 1x10 on my next trail bike, but silence is important to me on a bike that gets pedaled for many miles.
    I see that the MRP is on a good percentage of your guys' builds cause it seems to mesh so well with the lower link. But....is it quiet?
    THanks in advance!

    Excellent, I did Pauly in the morning 9am, it was cold 30deg. Sunrise had a layer of snow with a few tracks, and was fun, Pauly Creek was high. Did Butcher in the afternoon, snow did not melt much on Sunrise, but Butcher was clear.

    I imagine it snowed again, but with a few clear days should be great. I think DVO is still running shuttles everyday and Yuba on Fri - Sun.

    It makes a noticeable sound due to the lower pulley wheel. But i would'nt describe it as loud or annoying. The guide actually makes the whole drive train more quiet because there is no more chain slap against the chain stay.

    Hey kite85 ........

    We've heard Yody's thoughts on Mojo SL vs HD 140..... Let's hear your HD160 vs HD140 story....
    Question....What's up with spacer between the fork crown and headset? Is that just how that fork mounts up, or an adapter for your hs, or did you put it in there to space things up a little bit?

    The HD has a mixed tapered headset - top is zero stack, bottom is traditional.

    I know that, but look at the pictures from the poster I'm directing the question to. Between his fork crown and the orange lower bearing cup is an additional 5-6 mm of space.... looks like it could be black ano spacer, or carbon and just part of the fork crown. Because the 140 is a new option (as is the world cup fork) with a lot of possible combinations of fork & headset style, resulting in different HA, fork length, BB height, etc. I'm curious what people are thinking when they set them up, and how their setup works.

    It's part of the crown on the WC, a friend has one and the first time I saw it I wondered the same thing.

    Very nice! So are you keeping the two separate builds and going to switch between 140 & 160 or is this 140(+150) setup designed to replace your 160 setup? Were you finding the 160 setup just a bit too much so rebuilt it as 140 or was it your intention all along to have separe 140 & 160 builds?

    Hi,
    I don't keep the 160 setup because where I ride it is not necessary
    The 140 R/ 150 F setup is perfect for me
    Funny to ride, can ride on long distances, climbing like a tractor, downhill safely
    Very manoeuvrable (especially with the 711 mm easton bar)

    The frame is stiffer (tapered headtube, 12x135 rear axle, ...)

    But I need to ride with this setup more

    ... and if we just ... In my Defense!! Once and for all!!!

    To whom it may concern,
    My name is Avi Byer and I am the Sales Manager at Wrench Science and the Ibis representative at Wrench Science. Some of you may know me by name. And I would hope most of you are familiar with Wrench Science.

    The purpose of this post is to clear up some misunderstandings that have been flying around. And make no mistake about it, I am aware of these issues.

    I would like to formally apologize to anyone who felt that they received less then what they expected. It is important however to realize, that my intentions at all times is to do the best I possibly can. If I fell short I am truly sorry.

    I should hope that everyone knows that we are human and we make mistakes. As hard as I try to do everything in my power to provide the very best service possible, Ish happens. Sometimes the Ish that happens is out of my control. Sometimes things slip through the cracks. To my dismay.

    On the other hand, it appears that the success of my efforts far outweigh the failures!!! In fact, if it were possible to report all the success stories we would be here for a very long time.

    There are hundreds and hundreds of satisfied customers who are either unaware of places like MTBR or simply to busy riding their bike to testify of there experience.
    In fact after this past Inter-bike, where we met with Ibis for our annual elbow rubs, and high fives. We were told that we were the # 1 Ibis dealer in the nation!!!!

    That is what I am talking about~

    Those that know me, will tell you that I love bikes, I love Ibis!
    And I love selling people Ibis bikes. Why you might ask?

    Because their bikes rule the mountain!!!!!

    Again I apologize to those who I may have fell short.
    Feel free to let me know if there is a way I can make it up to you.

    And for those of you who were happy about the service Wrench Science and myself provided. Thank you for your kind words, and support!!!

    ^^ Deity, Codes, Totems. What a beastly HD!

    So how do you find the geo with a 180 fork up front? BB not too high?

    So stoked!!!! just too bad it starts to rain just as I get home.

    Won't lie, I wish I could afford the "Kashima" Talas for a little more bling but for the extra cost it just wasn't justifiable. Little bland now but looking forward to upgrading parts as it goes.
    IT'S TIGHT!!! But it would look soooo much better if it was a glossy carbon....

    She is a beast......but small horses don't carry big people. I am a big boy 6'2 235 just one of those dudes who is just a tree trunk. I break stuff. I need the beef....Deity is my favorite small manufacture for sturdy and reliable bar, stem. Totem....ahhhh my beloved Totem!!!
    The greatest fork known to man!!!! Delectably plush, supernatural lateral rigidity and a real confidence builder. The codes are all about slowing this train wreck down. I try my best to let it go...and having brakes that really slow down when you really need to, is awesome. I love riding the edge of control. And those brakes give me the confidence I need to do that. As far as the height of the bottom bracket is concerned, it has never presented me with even the slightest concern. I built the bike for my trip to Whistler in June, and my buddy (who was riding and M6) by intense, was cracking his bb left and right, meanwhile I was smooth sailing at all times and in all terrain. So to answer your question in short. The Ibis HD is the most versatile All mountain, free ride bike I have ever had the pleasure of owning. And the height of the bottom bracket has never concerned me or presented a problem.

    I've got two rides now on my HD. For the past year I've been riding an extra large SL with 36 Talas forks while I waited for this HD. The new matte clear finish is less glossy/more flat than the SL and the carbon weave is tighter. I find it much more striking than matte clear SL.

    2010 Talas 36 RC2
    XT components
    Elixir CR brakes

    Darma_14 - The MojoHD does not have ISCG tabs, so currently the Hammer Schmidt is not compatible with the HD.

    got my HD 140 built up at last. I'm basking in new-bike bliss right now, expectations have so far been exceeded after a couple of shakedown rides. I'll post some more preliminary thoughts in the HD 140 review thread. for now, here's a crappy pic and my build.



    Large HD 140 w/ rp23
    RS Revelation RLT Ti Dual Air, tapered steerer
    Cane Creek 110 headset
    SLX cranks 1x9 w/ MRP G2 chain guide and 32T chainring
    XTR cassette
    X9 shifter/X0 rear derailleur
    Avid Elixir CR brakes
    Thomson seatpost
    Fizik Gobi saddle
    DT Swiss EX1750s
    Specialized Eskar 2.3 f+r

    weighed 27.8 lbs on the LBS scale. I am psyched, it's a sweet ride!

    Helping Ibis stay in the black - just bought my 2nd Mojo in 3 months!

    Picked up this beauty over the weekend and brought it to its new home in Whistler! Sadly I can't ride it yet because I'm waiting for a Maxle adapter for my I9 rear wheel. Also planning on ordering a I9 front wheel to match. Can't wait to see how it rides compared to the classic Mojo I picked up earlier this summer (which I think I'll be selling - seems kinda redundant now).

    I'm 6'1". I haven't actually swung a leg over the HD yet, but my large Mojo has been a good fit, so I'm assuming this will be too.

    Looking forward to hearing how this works out because since you guys started talking 650 on the HD, I've become very intrigued. Was going to buy the Pushed Monarch over the winter anyway, will just have to decide to go shorter stroke or not to convert, hmmmmmm.

    Do wish there were more tires choices though.

    I love 650b on my standard Mojo, and the tire choices are somewhat limited, but there's a pretty good range of choices now, including my favorite AM tire (Nevegal 2.35), as well as Pacenti's excellent Neo-Moto, and the new WTB which I'd love to try, but clearance issues mean the upgrade to HD 140 will have to happen first..... and there are lots more choices if you want something skinnier/faster. I guess you're kinda out of luck if you want a super beefy DH type tire though.

    Pushed Monarch is top of my list for next upgrade....after talking to the guys at PUSH, it sounds like a nice way to go. I'm currently waiting on my 09 Revelation to come back from PUSH...very excited about that. OK.... I'll stop hijacking...sorry.

    If people are looking for HD's, Cal Coast Cycles has some. Was in San Diego for a holiday last week and just "happen" to walk by the shop after visiting the zoo. They had a few in all the colors as well. Seemed like a nice shop, too bad the credit card stayed in the wallet.

    Gold Hope hubs? Good idea as it seems to work (hard to fully judge from one pic though). Interesting tire choice too....a combo that I would like to try, especially the front tire (tubeless).

    I will put up anpther photo that will hopefully make you judge the gold hubs better... :-)

    As for the tires I now run with a cross mark 2.1 in the back and highroller 2.35 in the front which I am now quite satisfy with..

    I like it very much. Very smooth and accurate operation. Of course I can't say anything about reliability as nearly no one else. The only problem I can think of is a small play that exist if you move it back and forth. You don't notice this during riding and I understand it is in all of them. Again - I hope this is something that won't get worst with time.....

    Nice

    Hey - nice build, but I would recommend the down tube protector. I had a very large rock hit my frame and then my shin yesterday, surely would have smashed my cables.

    Pic is from top of Zen trail in St George Thanksgiving day. Rode in the snow on Gooseberry yesterday, forgot my camera.

    I will add a dropper post, and am too thinking of a lighter set of XC wheels.

    The 2.35 Nevegals were great in the snow BTW.

    Nice bike peippo and a great photo. If you put a blue rear brake line your bike would look very patriotic.

    Scottish Snow

    Here's my HD in the snows of Northern Scotland. This is part of one of my local routes, luckily I know roughly where the trail goes! It's quite hard going at times but still a load of fun.
