    They're more expensive everywhere, & seeing your build, it's not the cheapest anyway !!

    Strange to me, but I respect your colour choice.

    I'm new to ibis. now after I study more I also think I should get slr now. too bad I can't return and exchange.

    You should've asked here !
    Or even at Ibis, they're really helpful & open-minded.

    Still ... no problem this way, the opposite is not true, imagine an SLR frame with DH set-up !!!

    Don't worry about it, nothing wrong with having a bike a little over built. You never know a year from now you end up wanting to start hucking the thing off cliffs you have to start over. I can tell you riding the Hd since mid fall it has changed the way I look at the trails and makes me go bigger and better. If your worried about the weight just skip the next cheeseburger.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure what do you mean, I don't have a Fox RC4 shock, but I do have a Marzocchi 55 RC3 fork

    On the fork, I'm still fine adjusting, but right now I'm at 30 clicks of preload, no air, 9 clicks of rebound and 6 clicks of compression (clicks from full open). I'm 85kg (185lbs) geared up.

    Cheers.

    p.

    I also added some grip by getting rid of the RaRa in the rear, threw the 2.3 NeoMoto on back and a 2.35 HD up front. The So Cal dirt has been pretty tacky after the recent rains, but I can't get this thing to break loose!

    Beautiful build, but that setup is screaming for a new rear shock. Best upgrade you can make.

    Third year with the Mojo HD. Still blown away by how much fun it is to ride, and such a timeless design too. Pic snapped during a Summer night ride.

    How were you able to put your remote for the reverb like that? I also have a left hand remote but mine is on top and trying to figure it how I can make it just like yours.

    It's right-hand remote mounted upside down. I'm afraid that you will have to swap the remote to have it under the bar...

    Dang it! I should have gotten the right hand remote then. That is why I'm having a hard time mounting it like yours. It would be easier to press mounted that way. Thanks, though.

    Loving the HD with Wetscreams. They can be one of the most fun tires you can ever put on a bike when the conditions allow.
    I used to laugh all the way down some tracks at the insane levels of traction that I had no right to have

    What Nzl62 said, might inspire me to pull out my cut down wetscreams for some winter drifts later in year.

    Digitalhippie13 you need to bring that HD over the pond for some good ole Anzac trail battles and beers

    Sorry, I should have looked more carefully. What settings on your Vivid. Presume fairly open compression and rebound? Just curious as I have a CCDBA and an rc4 which I'm tempted to put on for comparative purposes.

    Cheers
