    LT meaning long travel? So maybe a 6+" travel Mojo. That would be nice!

    I'm betting on a 7-7.5" travel bike.
    On the lines of the Uzzi...

    Maybe even Socom.

    Dreamin'...

    let's spot the differences...

    -shock mount looks machined. probably useful for geometry testing. Maybe aluminum inlay inside the frame to reinforce structure around the mount.
    -Ibis badge is gone. Ibis sticker.
    -swingarm doesn't have its derailleur cable guide. derailleur cable routed below BB.
    -rear brake routed also differently; below top tube.

    I'm wondering if the main frame is coming from a different mold.

    ok, time for the photoshop wizz to layer the bikes and check for geometry changes.

    let the fun begin...

    Wow. That is crazy nice. I'd like to see some specs regarding BB height, HA, stand over and if it will come in a flashy razzleberry paint scheme.

    The pilot of that bike needs to reign in that Gravity Retarder cable though. Had the girl's bike set up with the Turbo set forward like that and one bail later the housing/cable was kinked and the remote pretty much useless. We have it coming out the back now [SIZE="1"](that's what she said).[/SIZE]

    Is that a tapered head tube?

    Will we see some at Bootleg this September?

    Looks like there's an actual non-internal headset on the lower head tube. Reducer maybe? Poor vision on my part maybe??

    I wonder if it can take a 160 OR a 180 fork...

    That is my #1 question, also if it's a 1.5 or not. Have to figure out which parts to swap if it turns out to be a winner Looks nice!

    Looks like it could be a tapered headset - hmmmmmm. Hopefully not, being pushed to another standard blows :P.

    More rumors....

    No pix but I was riding with my friend at Skeggs yesterday. He was at Trailhead cyclery this past week and said that Ibis (don't know if it was Hans or Tom) showed up at the shop with a 6X6 proto but he said that the bike had a "normal" front triangle so it didn't resemble the Mojo at all. I'm not validating the above story, but I don't doubt what my friend heard and he has no reason to lie to me. It's all hearsay until Ibis posts/says something.

    im happy with new "standards" so long as they are a viable standard and have real benefits.

    I can relate to where you're coming from and have to say that initially I was kinda bummed on the whole tapered headtube thing.

    However, one silver lining to the whole thing coming from stock 1-1/8 HT bikes is that so long as I stick with 1-1/8 forks I can use a flushmount reducer headset to get the front of the bike low-assuming it doesn't drastically steepen the head angle-or the reverse and use a standard reducer if I want the front of the bike higher to slacken it out, raise the BB, etc...

    What always bummed me out about the older Turners and Santa Cruz models was the super tall head tube on the XL's coupled with a 1-1/8 headset made the front end super tall. Back when I had an '06 Ventana El Cuervo I had to franken-mod the 888 crowns to fit between the two headset cups on the largerst El Cuervo frame because the HT was so long. It barely fit and the bike almost looked like a chopper and rode horribly.

    One of the big selling points to me about the original Mojo was the short HT on the XL and coupled with that an internal HS to get the front even lower. That is a huge plus in my book with that bike. I hope with whatever this is in the photo above, keeps with that tradition or something similar.

    could the front mech cable be relocated to the downtube? Would it physically fit and come up and under the bb? Im not a big fan of the top mount cable(s).
    Looks great otherwise and certainyl caused me to delay ordering my SL

    if that is true, it is probably a very early proto. you don't prototype something in the shape of the current mojo frame. it's a special mold that would be waaay to costly to develop for prototypes first.

    i bet the frame was hand built to test geometry and ride quality. final aesthetics and strength will come later when they are ready to invest in a mold.
