    My Ibis Mojo Story

    Here is my story …..

    After searching, exploring and demoed to compare frame weight against rear travel length ratio of an XC and AM bikes frame weight less than 6 pounds. I found out Ibis Mojo has the most length ratio to weight comparing with other bike I have measured against. (Figure Bellow)



    This ratio is just a simple excel graphic that I created personally to know the comparison of bike weight against length of travel and where does The Mojo stands out.

    Giving the fact that having an Asian body with height of 6 feet 7 inches, makes me inside the small zone geometry of almost all bike in the market. Having said that I notice that the Mojo had no obvious differences in the frame design between all sizes of the Mojo, in contrast to other frames in the market that almost every small ones tend to have very low slopes on their top tubes, for example SC Blur XC, and Cannondale scalpel, in my personal opinion dislike it. But on the other hand the small Mojo does not have that characteristic.

    Basically from that measurements, design and the strength of reviews only, I simply fell in love with The Mojo, and now having no bikes at all sacrificing the week end rides as I sold my precious and loved my F3000 Cannondale on the way to basically own the Mojo. However, at this point I am proud to say that since last week I am in the manufacturer 2 month waiting list of a small frame eddy orange Mojo, obtaining it through friends in Pennsylvania, since there are neither dealers nor distributor in my Beloved Country Indonesia.

    At the moment waiting in vain for the Mojo frame to come, I took the time in buying the components for my ultimate build at my local bike shops and here it is:

    REAR DER Shimano M970 SGS (XTR)
    FRONT DER Shimano M970 (XTR)
    SHIFTERS Shimano ST M975 DC (XTR)
    CRANKSET Shimano M970 22/32/44 (XTR)
    CASSETTE Shimano M960 11/34 (XTR)
    CHAIN Shimano CN-7701 (XTR / Dura-Ace)
    BRAKES Shimano BR-M975 w/ 160mm magura sl rotor
    FORK Fox Float 140 RLC
    BARS Easton Monkey Lite SL
    STEM Thomson, 25.4mm
    GRIPS ODI Grips
    HEADSET FSA
    SEAT POST Thomson
    SADDLE wtb shadow
    WHEELS Mavic Cross MAX SL
    TIRES Maxxis flyweight
    TUBES stan liquid
    PEDAL Crank Brothers SL
    QR Mavic Cross MAX SL

    To be continued.............

    You must mean FIVE foot 7 inches, otherwise you better get a XXL size frame!
    Great choice on the Eddy Orange by the way. I've been waiting almost two months for mine in the same color. I spoke to Aaron AND Tom today (yes, all the stories of the owners taking calls and answering questions is true! ) and they said my bike should ship out in a couple of days. The anticipation is really killing me!

    Nice.

    But you'll need a different front derailleur. The Mojo only fits a bottom swing with top pull.

    You're totally going to love those dual control shifters. They're the best thing to be invented in years. I find I can shift with my knuckles without even lifting a finger. Sort of like a twist grip shifter. And I have had to shift and brake at the same time. As a minimalist, the lack of another set of objects on the bars is quite nice.

    Well I dont own a dual control shifters, but I totally like the concept, have ridden some riders DC levers and love it and doesnt find it hard to use. My only comments is its weight is sometime heavier then a normal brakelever + shifter together

    I use (and love) a Maverick Speedball Seatpost for much of my riding. (I still have an Easton EC70 seatpost that I put in for places like Crested Butte.)

    I'm using the Speedball R also - awesome. Not sure how much the extra weight is hurting me in races, but for pure fun (including in races) it's totally worth it.

    Djaka,
    Your bike is going to be pretty light weight depending on the wheels you get. What do you plan on running for a wheel set?

    I love the silver finish on your stem and seat post, nice choice.
    I'm unique, just like everyone else....
