    Mojo HD Picture & Build Thread
    I may be a bit early on the draw here (or just doing it to feed my own obsession!), but I've seen a pic or two on Facebook of a build-up HD.

    Let's see them here...

    (My order has been placed and 95% of the build is waiting at home or will be here in a week or two. Then ALL I'll need is my new 6" beast!)

    This could be painful. Watching them all roll in while I wait and wait. My shop ordered a few early on so hopefully it won't be tooo painful.

    Music to my ears:

    "The thing that struck me most was not the driving setting of HD, which I found to be similar to Mojo, but the stability and security that gives the half on fast race, in those rough and jumps. The Cycling has made very stable and balanced. The increased range means that down seems to have its hands on a freeride bike. In my opinion appears to have been improved a lot as regards the descent, but without losing all the qualities that made the Mojo one of the most enduro bike pedals!
    In fact I did not notice big difference in the ride. Indeed, it seemed more responsive and agile!"

    Thank god you guys actually have pictures of real bikes being built and ridden. It's like a graveyard of sadness and toil out there right now.
    The Niner forum has been reduced to multiple threads of unloved part specs and photos of said parts lying alone and hermetically sealed inside packaging on top of scales with no sight of the rouge Carbon Air9 to be found anywhere.
    "Hey, I'm going to build this bike up maybe someday...I don't know when, but here's a couple of shots of a seatpost on a scale."
    The Turner forum has now become a 30 page ongoing e-fighting dialogue of e-speculation of an e-frame that will never exist.

    I really think some of you need to 'accidentally' post up your Mojo HD's in the "2010 RFX" Turner thread. I don't know. I'd find it pretty funny.

    Well,
    Ibis Mojo HD Numero Uno is coming together! The new Mojo Hd build is looking like 26.74 lbs (w/ pedals) and 27.5 lbs with pedals (carbon post). Add another .68 lbs for Joplin 4 post and she rides at 28.21 lbs! The weighs are based actual weight of partial assembly (pictured) and remaining parts weighed separately. Pic's to follow upon build completion and the first dirty test ride. See Mojo HD Numero Uno partial story: (http://www.chuckibis.com/chuck_spew/)

    Hans, what would be the best combination regarding the new 2x10 and 3x10 gear set-ups by SRAM and Shimano to optimize heavy trail and AM riding on the HD? This is all too new for me and I keep wondering what would be better for the new crankset and cogset sizes. Thanks.

    I've dropped the chain only twice in about 150 miles. The trails in MN aren't very rough except for a few man made rock gardens. I have the MRP chainguide coming next week, so I will post up a full review next weekend.

    Congratulations, and glad to hear that Avi took care of you. Word to the wise though, make sure that all the little parts, e.g. cassette, are what you paid for. I purchased a Mojo SL from Avi and had some discrepancies, along with a couple warranty issues on the build. Unfortunately, once Avi had my money and bike was delivered, his customer service suddenly dropped way off. That was two years ago and as you can tell I'm still bitter. I won't be a repeat customer.

    So I need your help here fellas. I got my name on a frame for the clear matte finish through WS & Avi is my sales guy. Not sure if I should get the X9 build kit they offer or only get the frame from them and finish it up myself. I wonder this because I'm 50/50 on how I feel about WS customer service. Also if I build it myself I was thinking of doing a 1x10 build.

    Sorry for my bystanding point of view, but since you guys are openly complaining about this guy Avi, shouldn't Ibis consider take a closer look on this LBS to check out what is happening? If it was me, I would take extra care where people exchange parts to take advantage on unadvised costumers. For what has been said, it looks like this LBS doesn't seem worthy of carrying the Ibis flag at all. Maybe you could contact Ibis about that, if you guys are that much worried about it.

    I stand by in my praise for both Avi and wrenchscience based on my 2 purchases. Nothing on my 2 purchases were anything but what I spec'd. In fact, Avi even added the frame protector at no cost because he was not happy with how the large diameter Hope brake hose was fitting under the clips on the down tube. He never even called me, he just did it because he thought it was right. Thanks again Avi.

    Well, I can't help but wonder... I know it's a Santa Cruz, but how sweet would be the HD with this paint scheme - red with white. Hans, please, consider a custom paint service in the future, or at least add some more color options for us to chosse from. :thumbsup:

  • 05-07-2010

    Naw.....Ferrari red is too mainstream for a cutting edge bunch of envelope pushers like Ibis... I say keep the controversial & polarizing colors coming.... Oakley never shy's away from alien-esque designs that turn people off at first, until they all buy a pair 6 months later.....
    and an Ibis red would have to have a tongue in cheek bodily fluid name, right? So, a nice dark red w/ a hint of purple called.... jugular juice... well, that's kinda weak, but cut me some slack, it's Friday....
    Or what about a straight-up bright fire engine red? That would look pretty badass.....glad I thought of it!:rolleyes:
  • 05-07-2010
    Black RONIN
    I guess you are right about the red, it's a very popular color choice, but you gotta love the two tone scheme. I guess my color of choice, considering the already known Ibis color range, would be the Ed orange with a full carbon rear but all the graphics in the same orange. One word: killer! :cool:

    About colors: Is it just me, or are the ibiscycles.com photos of the Vitamin P color very different from the actual bike in person? It looks very green & flourescent on the site; in person its 98% yellow IMO. Is this an early production kink that will get tweaked, or am I imagining things, or am I right but nothing will be changed anyway?

    Hans - can you please clarify the color on the Vitamin P? Is it green as per the pics on Ibis site or am I going to receive a yellow color as above? Whats going on with this color not resembling anything like the color on your site?

    That colors just wrong on so many levels!

    Oops what have I done? To be honest their pic looks like it was taken on a shady back deck w/ a good camera whereas mine was in full direct sunlight with the crap iphone. But still I noticed enough of a difference to stop & take the photo in the 1st place. So yeah I dunno.. maybe its that photochromatic stuff? Or being demo bikes they've been faded already? Or the web designer used a mac and we're lookin at pc screens? Still you'd think they'd be optimized for the "web palette" or whatever

    Dunno man, still a badass bike but yeah the nuclear flouro green is what made me drool, looks like it'd set off geiger counters :cool:

    Btw here's another pic I took that day.. definitely washed out but still

  • 05-07-2010

    Seen this pic on bike rumor which is slightly greener but not like the loud green that ibis show the color as, it looks as though their pic has had the saturation increased. Kinda sucks as I based my order on the color shown as per ibis site.



    not impressed :eek:

    Ah yeah that one's about accurate I'd guess. Still not as green no, bummer. Ppl are obsessed w/ saturation & vibrance sliders, its like the new lens flare

    I think it depends on lighting too. I saw an XL in the shop that looks like there is more green in it; but it's nothing like the nuclear pesto. The color looks like you took some vitamin B and then took a leak, Thus, the vitamin P I guess :).
    I was on the HD in greasmeat's picture earlier in the day on Monday and it looked yellow out in the sun.

    Nothing at the park where the demo was held requires a 6 inch bike but it was a pretty good place to see how it climbed/descended through some rocky sections. So I ended up spending another two hours repeatedly seeing how well myself and the HD did at that.
    When I first hopped on it I immediately noticed how it felt like --- wait for it ---
    a Mojo... I felt the biggest difference was that it was much stiffer than my non SL Mojo and was lighter too due to differences in builds - those were both pluses in favor of the HD...

    How are the HD's riding? No feedback anywhere on this site, whats going on? do they pedal like crap or something!

    Oh Lordy.... I hope we're not looking at another 6 months of people *****ing about color perceptions and hassling the kids at Ibis with endless flame posts. C'mon people....color correction is an entire field of study unto itself, and every different camera, setting, monitor, and brain could produce different perceptions..... If it's a crisis....pick white, or black, or wait until you can see one in person.

    Chainguides now in the store
    If you're one of the lucky few who've received an HD, the custom MRP/Ibis Mini G chainguide is now in the store, right about here.
    We don't have a retrofit kit for the Mojo and Mojo SL yet, but we are working on it. Sorry, no ETA yet.
    Once things settle down a bit, we're also hoping to have some dual ring and other chainguide availability info.

    Well, I joined the Ibis cult today. One XL Mojo HD in "Tennis Ball Yellow". Thats exactly what the color is like. Prefer the white but I'll live with it. Building it up next week, so stoked. Damn, that was a chunk of change to lay down.

    Grats man. Yeah tennis ball yellow is good way to put it. Should update those photos on their site IMO, it ain't green - so thinking of white now too, bummer.

    I'm not really the best guy to ask about my demo experience; I've never ridden a Mojo, a DW-link bike, any bike with that much travel, or any all-carbon bike even. So it was a lot to take in for me at once & tough to determine whether the stiffness was from those great Iodine wheels or the frame etc. Never even ridden proper tubeless before, so the grippy lower air pressure was cool to experience. Hell even the perfect front shifting was a standout from my old ass shifters & rubbing derailleur.

    But in general I'd say it felt real stiff, as well as efficient. If suspension is 4x4 squishie on one side of the spectrum & race track firm on the other, I'd say it leans towards race car in a vague non-helpful way. I guess it didn't feel super "plush", yet those are some big rocks at the end of Rocky Ridge and it just went over em; eventually I realized I didn't really even have to thread around them much, which was weird & very cool & kind of depressing since I don't like my current bike as much now after experiencing that. Knowing that it has 20mm of travel over my bike, yet is lighter, with less noticeable bobbing, is pissing me off LOL

    BTW I really want some Iodine wheels. Love that loud quality Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    How long is the shock used in the Mojo HD and how much stroke has it?
  • 05-09-2010

    I got to do a short demo ride. I have to say, what's up with the long stems and narrow narrow bars? Thats not going showcase the bike correctly and give it the correct feel.

    I never got it on dirt, but it was stiff and did pedlal well. The Geometry screamed go fast.
    I guess I'll have to wait till mine comes in to give it a good review.

    Are the Iodine Wheels are available with 12mm in the rear? Cause you can see them often on the Mojo HD....
  • 05-13-2010
    robnow
    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.

    There has to be an Adapter. I am looking for that option too.

    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.

    Simple questions;

    1x9 setup 34t in front short or medium cage (Shimano saint 810)?
    Recommended rear brake hose and rear derailleur cable lenght?

    I almost forgot. Frame size is XL.

    Thanks in advance.

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

    I already have had an XL Mojo for sevaral years. I was thinking a L size first but I don´t want pedal my nose pointing to ground. I prefer XL with HD type rig., My DH bike (IH Sunday) is fine with size L. I am 6'22 with 35,4 inseam. Anyway thanks for cage info.

    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.
