    New pics of my Ibis Mojo...

    Nope, not the new carbon fiber Mojo... mines the old school steel version. Just did a few upgrades to her...
    Rock Shox Psylo fork
    Avid mechanical disc brakes
    Mavic/DT/Hope wheelset
    SRAM XO rear derailleur and twist shifters
    Shimano XT cranks

    She now rides better than before. Love the new Avid disc brakes and XT cranks. I'll NEVER sell this bike.

    Beautiful bike ... Im think of dong mine up as well ...

    although mine's a small and I seem to be still tight in the cockpit (I'm 5'6" but with a short inseam) - sometimes I reconsider selling her, as I just bought a Ripley, which rides sooo nice. But i can quite part with the orange machine yet (although don't have the disk braze-ons).

    Just curious how the old mojo geometry rides with a 85mm - 90mm front fork (maybe a REBA u-turn?) - sometimes I'd like to take a little bit of the quickness out of the front end, as that seems to be the result of my long torso. Just curious if youve tried a taller shock setting in the front and how it rode?

    Also - how do you like the twist shifters - Ive b een using the suntour thumbies, but was thinking of trying out the SRAM drivetrain?

    thanks

    I've ridden many bikes over the years and my Mojo is by far the best handling. I do some XC racing and really love this bike for that type of stuff. The front fork I have SUCKS though, way too soft. It was cheap...and you get what you pay for... I really need to step up to a high end front fork like something from Fox.

    As for the twist shifters, I love them. I switched to these a few years ago and will probably never use anything else. SRAM X0 stuff rules.

    I like my mojo, but I am loving my refurbished riply ...

    the softtail feature is quite nice. Im thinking that my mojo is a little short in the top tube for my size and if I put a fork adjusted to 90mm, maybe the front end would get less squirrly. How does yours ride with 85mm or greater setting, despite the crappy fork (BTW - I have an anchient SID, which is probably adding to the crappy handling.

    thanks

    I hope not ... I think its more the grouch over my wierd body geometry ...

    just trying to sweeten up the ride onthe mojo - although I sitll wonder if the lively front end had more to do with a an old SID, and perhaps not the best tires. A stiff fork up front seems to be a good option for this and the Uturn Reba or some other adjustable fork sounds like it would be worth a try.

    Bait and switch ... how's that????

    I love the Ripley - I think it rides better then the mojo ... but I still love the mojo, mine would just get too unpredictable at the front end and the cockpit felt tight. I have a medium frame torso and and a small frame standover. The longer TT of the Ripley helps, I think. Im not getting were there's retro grouch and bait and switch being declared here?

    Ok then, an excuse to show my Alibi

    Perhaps this should belong in the Retro section, but I didn't start it.

    I think it looks quite proud of its newly aquired front end.

    If anyone is offended by the dirty bike pic, let me know and I will clean the next one

    What in the crap is that fork???????

    Like Robo-cop's version of the Lefty?

    Nice Alibi!

    I have the same exact frame. Rare color!

    RoboFork..

    The fork is a Ultimate Sport Engineering SUB (Stability Under Braking). The Brake caliper forces are fed back into the fork to work against the weight transfer under braking. That's the theory and it works well - just takes a little getting used to.

    Looks cool though, IMHO.
