    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?

    Are you getting an error? or just can't scroll? Is it the newsletter or the HD page?

    "A third, more colorful version is in the works as well." I like that!

    But I still don't know what size seatpost it will use...

    I just can't scroll, and it's on both the newsletter and the HD page. Only on IE though. No problems with firefox.

    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.

    Hans, sorry for asking this at this point, it's way too late for that anyway, but couldn't the HD have replaceable rear dropouts to fit either a maxle or a QR hub?
