I picked up my large Mojo with customized SLX kit last week. I have spent all week building her up and I'm stoked to take her out for a ride but I'm still fussing with the chain length.
Seems that Ibis' recommendation is to use 112 links but this fully relaxes the rear derailleur when at middle front (32T) and one-but-smallest rear (12T). Emperically I find that 108 links keeps tension on the derailleur when using smaller gears while it looks as if big front/big rear/full shock compression doesn't tension the derailleur to its fullest capacity (derailleur arm points 4 o'clock). I'm using a 11-32T XTR cassette, 22-32-44 XTR chainwheels, and long-cage XTR derailleur.
Am I missing something perhaps, and should I add a few more links to avoid chain or shifting problems I haven't considered or experienced yet? How many chain links do most people use on their Mojo?
