    Luciano, you have an awesome rig there, how is the BOS suspension treating you? As good as it's been told to be??

    Anyways, I made a few upgrades to my ibis:




    Merry christmas/kwanza/whatever you celebrate everybody!

    the Bos suspension does such a nice job
    the bike flows over rock gardens, fly on bike parks and the tire combination glues to any dirt soil
    the Void is for DH, on this bike you feel a little less effective than w/ a CCDB Air for e.g., or the stock Fox Float. To extract the potential this frame has to offer, it should be spec'ed w/ the CCDB Air at least.
    Regarding the Deville fork, it delivers much more confidence than the prior Fox 36 Talas, even w/ thiner legs, it works so well that you feel the track sensibility

    Bos suspension is noticeably superior to a stock model from Fox, Rock Shox, Marzocchi, Manitou, DT Swiss, Magura, etc.

    Looking for some advice. I've got the chance of an Ibis Mojo 160 HD 2012 XT build, ex demo. I normally go for a small framed bike but this is a medium and its 400 miles away so I can't test it. Issue is I'm 5ft 5 inches tall, 30 inch inside leg and wonder if the medium will be too big on the stand over??? Not too worried about the reach as I could shorten the stem probably.

    Likewise it's a 2012 vitamin P coloured bike but notice Ibis don't change the frame design/colour every year. What's their policy on frame changes compared to the main brands that change them every other year if not sooner?

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

    Hey there,

    So I'm 5'5 and I'm riding the MD mojo. Lot of people tell me that it's a big bike for me, and it feels like it when I'm standing next to it (saddle comes up to my upper hip when extended) but once I sit on it, it all goes away.

    I ride it with a 50mm stem but looking to go shorter. A dropper post is a must. Thankfully, ibis runs their bikes a little smaller for whereas most mediums would be at a 17.5" seat tube, the mojo comes in at 17" flat. Us short guys certainly benefit from that.

    Either way, I'd say go for it. I'm happy with my bike and honestly, the medium just looks better than the small. My .02.

    Hi to you all.

    Then I'm 5'8 and riding a Med with 50mms stem, perfect, even if having tried a Large frame, I know it could be even better for big enduro rides in the Alps.

    BUT, my son's 5'5 and feels perfectly at home on it (with the 50 stem) could be 30 or 35 mms for him.

    Bos is certainly the way to go if you want to get the full potiental of your Mojo.


    This album's not up to date, as I've changed a few things ... brakes, seatpost etc ...

    My HD Rocket Ship

    Hi all,

    Have not posted for a while on this forum. My IBIS with BOS fork and Vipr shock.

    Fork is just amazing, it supports well and is supper plush. Just awesome. The vipr rear shock is my latest addition and have not tested it in very demanding conditions...will drop a post once I put it through its paces...

    On the bike it feels smooth and hope it feels like that on the trail.

    To those IBIS HD's guys riding Bos suspension, post your weight and settings: will be interesting to compare setups:

    My settings:

    Weight with riding gear with piggy back: 85-6 kg (kilo difference depends on how much I s..t.

    Fork:

    85 psi or 5.9 bar
    Sag: 40mm
    Low speed: all the way out counter clockwise and then 4 clicks in.
    High speed: all the way out counter clockwise
    Reboud: 15 clicks from high

    Vipr:

    195 psi or 13.5 bar
    rebound still not known...have to test to find the right setting
    ?? What surprises me with the Vipr is that changing the rebound several clicks from fast to slow has not big effects...interesting...??

    Hate winter

    Hi to you BOS fan !

    Concerning your Vip'r rebound problems, I highly suspect you've forgotten to follow step 3.2

    http://www.bosmtb.com/pdf/noticesen/vipren.pdf

    3.2. Air chambers balance
    To warranty a perfect function of your shock, after having setted the air pressure, you must proceed to the air chambers balance.
    The shock must be mounted on the bike.
    Place the O’ring at 15 mm from the seal of the shock, sit on your bike, and push slowly on the suspension, to compress the shock until the seal come onto the O’ring. Let the suspension extend itself, still slowly.
    Repeat 15 times those up and down movements, always at low speed.


    My personal settings : Weight naked : 72 kg

    Deville 170 :

    5.5 bar
    Sag: 25% = 42mm
    Standard setups are 15 out from fully tightened position, then for me it's ...
    Low speed comp : 11 clicks out
    High speed comp: 18 clicks out
    Rebound: 18 clicks out

    Vip'r :


    190 psi
    Sag 30% = 19mm
    Standard setup is 15 out from fully tightened position, then for me it's ...
    Rebound : 11 clicks out
    Don't let your fears stand in the way of your dreams ...

    35mm Havoc stem, bar cut down to 770mm

    Frame size large...that my dilemma, I fit between an M & L...I went for an M for my stumpjumper 29er just felt right...

    The IBIS, L is perfect and M a little to short...

    Yip, know this section...I guess I need to be more consequent with this step and then set the rebound

    How do you guys find the paint holds up with chipping and rubbing on the carbon frame? Is it less resistant than alloy? Do you use frame tape protection?

    Hop hop hop ... mine's a N'dee, but in perfect condition.

    BOS N'dee (now Idylle SC) - Pinkbike

    It's even possible to transform this one into an air fork, via this NOVYPARTS - Kit-air pour BOS Idylle

    The guy's a friend of mine, he worked for 2 years at BOS MTB suspension, so he knows what he's doing.
