    Amazing paint job. Really dig the black inside the rear triangle. It looks fast, even on the stand! I'm dying to see what the other colors will be. And only 2.8kg? That's what my 575 weighs!

    The assembling footage is nice. Hans, could you get more pics of the full assembled bike and post it here for us?

    Anyway, still amazed how fast you guys got this ready. Guess it won't take long until we get it for real!

    EDIT: The inside of the rear triangle is not black, but clear gloss carbon. If you get to see the new pics, it's just jawdropping.

    I am stunned....amazed. Not in the market for the HD but I am excited just the same. I thought the Mojo looked good but the HD makes the Mojo look very plain Jane. The color scheme is jaw dropping IMO.

    Guess Hans won't mind post a few pics here... Well, maybe more than just a few, actually!

    From the Ibis website - more pics in Hi Res at the Mojo HD page:

    Post mount rear brake mounts... just awesome. This bike will simply crush anyone in its league, big time.

    Hans, since the HD uses a 12x135 rear axle, can I adapt my XT wheelset to fit there? I have a 20mm Shimano XT wheelset that was reserved for such bike, and I'd be very sad if I can't use them! I ask this because I guess Lopes runs Havocs and Iodines, and both don't seem to have a Maxle rear hub.

    And seatpost is 30.9 or 31.6?

    I get an error on both the newsletter and HD page: the head or the foot of the page (a yellow stripe along the "Chuck Spew" litter at the left) comes over the 2nd paragraph's text and over the 1st pic where it's writen Mojo HD. I can scroll the page fine, but the stripe stays static, does not move along when I scroll down or up. I'm on a PC, Win7, Explorer 8, compatibility mode on.

    Drool

    I've been drooling over this all morning instead of working.

    I don't "need" one, but I have a feeling I will own one eventually.

    I'm wondering if we will see any of the HD's innovations make it to the SL and the standard Mojo. Such as the post mount for the rear brakes, the polycarbonate cable protector for the downtube, & the tapered headtube.

    WOW! I just got off the phone to my LBS, and they are going to call to reaffirm the earlier order (October 09) and order mine in white.
    I also don't "need" this as I already have an an '06 and love the heck out of it. But how can you resist a gnarlier version of a great bike?

    My LBS offered me today ordering the HD with the Iodines. Guess they will be setting the wheelset to cope with the new HD rear Maxle. Plus they offered me a tapered TALAS 36 RC2 and the Joplin, all that as a Mojo HD "starter pack" (needless to say I'm joking here, Ibis is not offering such pack! But glad to see the Iodines will be up to the task in the HD! )

    But no coil option???

    Hey Hans, Great looking HD but am curious about no coil option. We all know Brian rides coil yet the PR says "a coil shock is not offered because the linkage rates weren't designed for it." So are Brian and Dave not talking or what's the story??

    Hey, what a coincidence!!!!, the painting of the rear triangle is very similar to the one I have in my project. Instead of having the inner part in clear I have the "eyes" in clear.
    The HD looks amazing.

    Thank you Hans and the folks at Ibis. You guys are testing my fortitude and will to keep my new years resolution - maintain a realistic budget. The HD may break that will. But thank you for the wonderful product(s) and personal challenge. Now what can I start selling from my garage?

    from Colin our engineer:
    "That's guys got a good eye! The HD will come with the little ziptie guides that get riveted on, not the tranny ones that get screwed on. Because we ran out of time at the factory I had to put those guides on here and didn't have any more of the correct guides. I probably should have put on the brake guides instead of the derailleur ones though."

    What about the polycarbonate cable guard?, will it be available in your web shop? I would like to have one for my new repainted Mojo SL in order to protect it from stones.

    How light do you guys think people will get there builds?

    I'm thinking it should be pretty easy to get it down to 27 lbs with 2.35 tires.

    Anyone already knows what the 3rd color option is? Anyway, the Matte Black with gloss carbon must be a killer. The white is beautiful, but a white SL and a white HD is one white bike too many! Am I the only one hoping for a Ferrari Red HD?

    I just threw a deposit down on a mojo yesteday after riding one back to back with a tracer vp. the only thing the tracer had on the mojo was that it felt more plush like it had more travel, so i have a feeling this HD solved that problem and then some. super dope bike, i'm sure the builds will be mind-blowing eye candy.

    My Mojo SL weighs 25.8 lbs, but keeping all the components and changing only frame and Float RC2, I'd be adding exact 1 pound over my current build. This is surreal.

    Turns out to be that it is not an offer by my LBS alone: Ibis has released the HD pricing charts and there it is, the very pack my LBS offered me. That's nice, oh yes, very nice!

    We had to pick one or the other to hit our weight target. The precision fit and added rigidity of the through axle is nice especially when you put the wheel in and the rotor is EXACTLY back where it's supposed to be...

    Brian has his own custom tuner and has shocks for different purposes so he runs shocks that are super firm, soft or lower his bike or whatever he feels is the hot set up for the course.

    Most of the shortcomings of air shocks have been overcome in the last few years and if you want to make a lightweight frame or bike, they save a lot of weight. The spring curve is different than a coil, so the suspension on the HD is designed with that air spring curve in mind.

    There's an adapter that swaps it over to 12mm TA.

    We've got them in use here, works fine!

    CB should have them...

    Hans,

    rubberized paint?

    SRAM XX compatibility?

    what kind of "tune" does the RP23 on the HD have?

    what's the company's take on tapered HT+tapered steerer tube?


    Thanks.

    Yes, the larger gear combo

    what kind of "tune" does the RP23 on the HD have?
    Velocity tune = Low
    Rebound tune = Low
    Boost Valve tune - 225 psi


    what's the company's take on tapered HT+tapered steerer tube?
    ??? It allows a stiffer crown and steerer at a given weight. Good for long travel single crown and carbon fiber steerer / crown designs.


    Thanks.
    Cheers!

    I am thinking this thing should be able to be built for around 8k with a solid spec.

    If on just the currency conversion 4,000.00 USD = 4,327.58 AUD, do you know why it's all so marked up? I've never understood what's goin on... someone's making nice money somewhere?

    Where did you get the $4000 figure from? or is that just a random number for comparison sake? The USD price of the frame is a lot lower than that. If the frame ended up around $2800 - $3200 AUD i would still consider this good value and probably still place an order.

    The local distro would have all sorts of costs to factor into the landed price of one of these frames. E.g. Shipping Costs - If not with other bits and bobs then this would increase the price from what they buy it for.
    O/Heads - The companies O/Heads certainly factor into the pricing model.

    Dirt Works, the local distro for Ibis are a fairly large concern and offer fairly competitive pricing. Now obviously stuff like this is not volume sales so all those factors need to be taken into consideration.

    Ibis Frame costs in Aus

    I bought my original mojo from an Aus LBS via DW. Over the last year or so I have been looking into buying a Tranny since IBIS have treated me so well. However DW wants about $2800AUS for the frame. I can fly to the states and back to pick up a frame myself and it would only cost about $100.00AUS more. So something is seriously wrong here.

    Yeah just buying the frame is the way to go. I meant walking into a shop for a built bike ready to huck n roll I bet will be $10k. Used 4 grand for an example although the price chart has it built with X9 Kit for $4,099 USD.

    You know I'm heading back to Sydney soonish, if there was a way to save $$ by having me pick one up & bring it over for ya I'd do it. But I haven't a clue as to how it'd all work, what the customs/duty charges would end up at. And lord knows what the warranty situation would be.

    Yep something definitely fishy going on. While back I looked up my Snyper price over there and it was $6k+. Whoof. I've noticed it in other areas as well, say building a pc... these motherboards etc come from Taiwan which is closer than the USA but there's still delays and markups. Just can't figure it out..

    Gee. There is something in that given they are only $1,399 USD.

    I would have thought they would be a bit more competitive than that. The only thing i could think of would be the low volume that they would have purchased. That and i am sure the Australian Govt slugs us with a fair amount of import duty...

    Even so they would be getting a better than RRP rate of purchase per unit (Speculation) But even with freight and time taken i would have said around $1850 - $2050 would sound a bit more appropriate...

    Not that i am rubbishing anyone here. Don't get that idea. Dirt Works are great guys; however it would be nice if a clear explanation to where the costs lie was given.

    Will there be any chance to get "special ordered" rubber paint?

    I love it on my Mojo SL.

    What do you guys think will the bike be like with a 32 150? 15mmTA of course
    There's a feeling I get

    Geometry would be slightly steeper, about 67.5/71.5, and BB lower, about 13.6 depending on tires. It would handle quicker than designed, somewhat similar to using a 160mm fork on the Mojo.

    I had a look at import duty a while ago I can't remember the exact figure it was either 10% or 5% since we we don't have have any major frame makers.

    Duty is 5%
    Then you pay GST on the total price including shipping.

    Can someone provide an explanation on how the effective top tube length changes depending on which fork length is used? Is this the case for all MTB frames? The spec'd 0.2'' difference seems like it would be noticeable.

    Thanks.

    time to dust off the trigonometry text.
    since theoretical top tube measures from the head tube "horizontally" to the seat tube, then if you raise the height of the head tube the triangle changes. Its a great example of a mostly useless piece of information in bike geometry - the bike "fit" isn't going to change by putting on a different fork.
    here we go again

    Won't the horizontal leg of the triangle become shorter if the head tube is raised?

    It actually gets longer as the projection of a horizontal line from the top of the head tube rearward takes a greater distance to intersect the slacker seat tube.

    If the bars are kept the same height from the ground the reach will actually increase because of the slacker seat angle.

    Thanks Hans. Your customer support is second to none. My next bike will be an Ibis. Now all I have to do is become a better rider to justify buying an HD .

    A top performing bike makes it much easier to quickly become a better rider. It's almost cheating!

    Current Aussie Pricing: Standard Mojo XT is US$4229.99 = A$6150 last time I was quoted from my local Ibis dealer.

    So Mojo HD with X9 kit = US$4099.99, should be less than A$6k unless someone is out to make a fast buck off the buzz.

    Also, the Australian dollar has been up and down against the US$ over the last 6 months or so which complicates matters for the distributor, particularly if they hold stock.

    From the consumers point of view it's frustrating seeing such a large discrepancy, particularly at the moment when there is almost parity between US$/A$. I'm very tempted to "phone a friend" in the states but you got to support your good local bike shop right?

    Just out of curiosity, how much is a Mojo in Canada?

    Hans,

    Can you give us an idea if the initial production run might include a 3rd color option, and if so how do we retain our options when placing our current order with our dealer? Secondly, do you have a list of dealers which have placed 'pre-orders" to insure that we don't get sandbagged?

    Thanks, Ken

    Hans,

    I see where the Mojo HD complete factory bike spec. calls for the Fox 36 Rc2 Talas fork. What is the thinking of using the Fox Talas 160/130/110 version of the fork vs. the lighter Fox 36 RC2 160 mm fork? Is the Talas feature that desirable when climbing so as to offset the 90- 100 gm. weight difference? Also, would the Fox DHX air option for the rear shock be necessary for anything short of full-on downhill riding for say a 170 lb rider? Again that shock seems to only add complexity and a .5lb to the frame weight? Svelte is the name of the game, I believe.

    Thanks, ken

    Yes, I'm wondering that too. Now I'd like to see a pic of the Matte Black, but keep guessing what 3rd color will be. My LBS has only been told about the white and black so far, and orders are based on these two colors only.

    Just looks like a mid level kind of build, just looks boring to me, the longer stem, triple ring, what weels are those?, stationary seatpost, looks naked without the ibis logo too.

    The third color is a ways off and yet to be determined.

    Re: dealers with preorders, they are generally on it, but if you want to confirm an order is in our system email or pm me..

    Looks like it might be the x9 kit, except that's supposed to have stan's rims. Dunno what the rims in the pics are, but they have 'nipple rings' while stan's don't. Otherwise looks like x9 build to me, which seems like a pretty good value.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the inevitable crazy bling builds that this frame is going to insipire...

    Cub rims? I didn't know the hive was going to offer rims / complete wheels. Any word on the built kits being offered?

    That's one of the two first available AM kits for a beat-up, no-compromise, everyday riding. I'm pretty sure they will spec more expensive kits (Ibis already offers upgrades to wheels, seatpost and fork), as many will also spec them with high end components themselves.

    Boring? Really? The plain full color is awesome. Ok, it's white, so there's not much to be seen, but still, I thought it gave a really clean and prototype-like look to the bike. Plus the graphics are stunning. Wish my SL was that slick!

    Here's different pic (from Singletrack.com), the bike in front of a black BG, that shows more of the bike's silhouette, but unfortunatelly it's a bit small. Wish someone at Ibis could release this pic and the pic of the frame shown on the HD newsletter in hi res, they would make great wallpapers!

    For a pedaling bike, why so a slack seattube angle?

    The bike looks beautiful, a ton of nice features, but I am surprised to see such a slack seattube angle for what many would consider a excellent pedaling bike? Is this to keep the wheelbase short and the whole bike flickable on the downhills, when not seated?

    Hans, will the downtube protector be compatible to regular Mojos by attaching it to the water mounts? If not, you guys plan to release a version to fit the Mojo and Mojo SL?
