    Ok, so hereīs a big transformation.

    Hi all,

    Well, so this is my first post in this forum as an Ibis bike owner. Iīve looking in here around for about 6 months but I finally got my Mojo SL frame.

    So, I got this great box (well, not really the box is what is great but the content), and I will put everything thatīs installed on this bike.

    Ok, so specs are these:

    Mojo SL Large
    Mavic SLR Crossmax
    Fox Talas 32 RLC
    XTR shifters, crank, derrailleurs
    Magura Martha SL brakes
    Selle Italia SLR Gelfow saddle
    FSA Carbon fiber seatpost
    Cane Creek 110 IS headset
    Thomson 90mm stem 0°
    FSA XC190 handlebar
    Oury grips
    Eggbeaters Ti with titanium spindle pedals
    crankskins protection where needed

    I will post pics when the transformation is over.

    BTW, tires are mountain kings ust 2.2

    All components are almost brand new.

    Iīm looking forward to experiencing the difference between my previous bike and the Mojo. I will keep you posted.

    So are you transplanting all those bits to a Mojo or do you think that Chumba is a Mojo SL?

    If you are swapping parts from your Chumba, you may regret it. I prefer my XCL over my Mojo for certain types of trails.

    Yeah....but but.....that's not an XCL. Not a valid comparison. Granted he may still prefer the VF2....who knows. I get what you're trying to say, but it's not relevant.

    Howīs that?
    I hope I didnīt spend 2300 bucks in a frame that I will like less than my VF2.
    Iīve been told by everyone that the Mojo will feel a lot better than the VF2.
    BTW I will keep the VF2 and see what happens with the Mojo but Iīm still thinking that I will like the Mojo a lot more.

    Also, I have enough components to build the VF2 completely but Iīm not going to do that at least in a few months.

    I think the VF2 is supposed to be very similiar to the XCL, only lighter. I haven't ridden a VF2 though.

    It was worth the wait...

    Ok, so itīs been a while since I posted this, but after some time, I think the final result was worth the long wait.

    The bike is very light but I havenīt weighted it yet because I donīt have a scale, but I will let you know itīs weight as soon as I can.

    I havenīt ridden it yet (only on the parking of the LBS) but it feels very plush, but I canīt comment anything more.

    In my opinion, itīs looks is awesome! I have already placed some "crankskins" for the frame and today I will take care of the downtube.

    I hope you like it and I will keep you posted.

    Regards

    No need to up grade any more, the bike looks great. For some reason the tires look too shinny, time to get it dirty eh?

    Good job let's know how you like them.

    Looks great. I started with a set of those tires as well. I found them to be pretty good; they are predictable, reasonably light for UST, hold air well, seat easily, and shed mud well. Their limiting factor is that they wear quickly and are very low volume (harsher riding/less rim protection).

    If you decide to go a little bigger when those wear out, and you want to stick with Conti, try the MK 2.4 UST F and Race King UST 2.2 R.

    Enjoy the bike!
