    Mojo owners, do you own a hardtail? or what's your "other ride" ?

    I just bought myself a Mojo SL frame. Thinking of building it next month. I currently own a Hard tail, it's an old Porsche Bike S (frame made by STORCK) with an XT build.

    I really think having 1 really good hard tail bike and 1 Mojo will be a great combo.
    Although my dream hardtail is the limited edition Mojo ti with superlight parts, I guess I would have to save up for that....

    Anyway, I was wondering if you Mojo owners would like to share what kind of hardtails (or other bikes) you have?

    Hardtails (or other bikes)?. I have a Chameleon SS that I ride to keep it real. If the economy gets better, I don't lose my job, and Ibis EVER starts shipping the Tranny, I might trade frames.

    I think the car and women posted above look way too plush to qualify as bikes (much less hardtails).

    Technically this is a hardtail!

    Slingshot Ripper, kitted with a Fox F80RLC, Race Face Deus, a mix of XT/XTR, and some handbuilt lightweight wheels.

    yes, I have a hardtail..

    Dean titanium with S&S couplings (travel bike).
    The problem is, I suspect that the Mojo can fit in the S&S coupling travel case.

    Gary Fisher Paragon that has been converted to SS usage.

    1997 Seven Cycles Axiom Ti - one of the very first built in their original facility in Topsfield.

    Here is mine, Litespeed Pisgah, titanium frame all XT some old some new, 08 fox talas which is too big for the bike really but as it was sat in the shed I thought it would go well on the Litespeed. Rides pretty well, it was my first proper mountain bike and I cant come to selling her, but she may have to make space for a Tranny!

    Have a 2008 19" Kona Kula Supreme scandium hardtail with mostly XTR build and a lite Marzocchi XC700 fork.

    Not happy with the Marzocchi.

    V10 and Kona Coiler Primo. I think a freeride/ downhill bike is more of a compliment to a Mojo. I've been toying with the idea of a quality hard tail, but came to the conclusion that having the Mojo i would never ride it. A hardtail as a xc race bike maybe, but for anything else the Mojo would win every time for me anyway.
    So you guys with a mojo and a good quality hard tail, i'm curious, except xc racing when would you choose the hard tail over the mojo?

    Building muscle (mine's SS), changing it up (variety is a spice of life), keeps the trails feeling fresh, .......... but yea, the Mojo rules and it takes discipline to ride the SS once a week.

    I could see owning a hardtail XC bike if your Mojo is set up like Brian Lopes' bike but since most of our's are pretty much XC bikes I'd recommend a DH, FR, or DJ as a second bike. Playing on these bikes will teach the "new school" skills that I notice are lacking in this forum.

    My others...

    Just sold a great mojo steel hardtail, I still have a Kona Cindercone from 1996 that I use for trailering the kids and I just bought a Dirt bag. I have a Lopes style mojo-160mm fork, havoc wheels, 50mm stem, bashguard, DH bars....Now that I have the dirtbag I may go back to a longer stem and different bar but the mojo as is has been a GREAT all around bike. I only bought the DB because after a few lift accessed rides I got a good deal on the Transition and wanted a bit more cushion and stability. I bought this photo shoot one slightly used.

    I have had the mojo carbon for a couple years and I didn't ride my hardtail even once since I bought it so I sold it to help pay for the Transition. In my opinion a Freeride/Downhill bike and the mojo compliment each other very well.

    So you guys with a mojo and a good quality hard tail, i'm curious, except xc racing when would you choose the hard tail over the mojo?
    I just installed my Nokian 296 studded tires on the Dean hardtail. We are getting dumped on with snow here in metro Boston, so after snowboarding a ton over the next few days, I will take the Dean out onto some fireroads and well trampled singletrack. Generally, this is what happens to the trails around here after a big dump. Outside of the wintertime, the only time I really use my hardtail is as a backup if the full suspension bike (previous ride was an Ellsworth) is out of commission for some reason or if I am riding with someone who needs a loaner. And yes, that person gets the full suspension ride, and I ride the Dean, as generally speaking, the loaner is to someone who doesn't ride much.

    I hate seeing people who are really into mountain biking taking their friends out on their "backup bike". I think the way to go is to have their friends use their good bike, and that the host should ride the "backup bike".

    I'm partial to it it's an extra bonus that I've never seen another one out on the trails, although I can say that about the Mojo too - but after all, that's part of the reason I bought it too.

    My Mojo SL is still in the making, but my other ride is a ´08 Simplon Stomp with 100/115mm travel. Simplon is an austrian manufacturer and probably not well known in the US, but it´s a great bike anyway - and it´s fast.

    Ooooohh..... those ti lugged epics are SWEEEEEET... I haven't seen one of those in years... since I was selling them in the early 90's.... Great move keeping that one!

    In my case, the other bike is the other Mojo.... Ti Mojo modernized a bit with F100 RLC, disk brakes, XTR..... The only hard tail I've ever been on that rode better was the '94 steel mojo I sold before this one.

    My Scott Scale is a nice compliment to the Ibis. Keeps me from getting to many
    bad habits as the Mojo works so well.

    Mojo's friends

    The Mojo's closest friends are a ti Moots Compact outfitted with Campy and de-stickered DV46s and a Bianchi Roger Cross bike. He needs one more friend....

    Brakes

    I run Juicy 7s or Avid BB7s.

    No issues with them. The juicys squeal sometimes, but they always have. BB7s work the best. I have them on the Bianchi SS too.

    My other bike is a 2006 Kona Kula Supreme.

    A great bike but I'm thinking of replacing it with a Tranny this year.
