    What about the MOJO HD 2965?

    So I have been happily riding my MOJO HD for 3 years and was looking to retire it and get a Ripley, after the all the abuse my bike has been through I will not look anywhere else but too Ibis> I was just looking to put the bike up for sale when I discovered that my swingarm is damaged (the sleeve for the bottom pivot is loose and i think I know why...) so selling the bike is out of the question.

    When I first saw the 650 swingarm upgrade option I didn't think much of it as I had to replace the shock and the wheels anyway and i really wanted the 29inches to roll on. But with my swingarm broken it looks a bit better: If I then go for a 29er front I.e wheel and fork it is pretty close but with the extra 20mm of rear wheel travel.

    Has anyone tried this? Will the front be to high? and what about toe overlap?

    Just starting to look into this: any help is welcome!

    The Ibis wizards have quite a few tricks up their sleeves for repairing such problems. Don't write off your HD yet!

    Doesn't really stop my craving for a new bike though.....

    Not even a new bike can stop that craving.

    Let me tell you how this goes. You buy a 29, ride it for a few weeks and then the excitement wears off and you realize that it is no faster than your HD. In the meantime you have also ordered the latest 275 wonder bike. While that is on order you realize how much you love your HD and now you are stuck with three Enduro bikes, one of each wheel size.

    Ask me how I know.....

    Are you saying that companies who can't make a bike that compares to the HD are trying to do it by using a different wheel size?

    That is a more direct way of saying it! I have not ridden the M6 yet, but the 29 is not my cup of tea.

    have you ridden the ripley?
    the reason I ask is that every other 29er that I've ridden hasn't been my cup o' either...but I do dig my ripley.

    I have not ridden the Ripley. Sounds like it is a fantastic XC bike. My 29 comment was relative to 160 travel AM bikes and not sure I would use an XC bike much with my riding.

    gotcha.
    what's striking about the ripley, to me, is it's ability to combine xc-great efficiency with AM-great capability in one package. it's a really remarkable bike.
