    Limbo chips on SL-R?

    I wonder if the Limbo chips would work on the SL-R ?
    making it a 160 SL-R

    reason behind the thinking .... is I want to get a Mojo HD 140/160 ... i have a shock to convert to 160

    but if the SL-R is stronger than the HD ... why no just get the HD and convert to 160 ?

    Or have I got it wrong?

    Limbo chips will only shorten. Not lengthen. So, you could take the 140 to say, 120, but not the reverse. I believe...

    Hi, if you had looked at a picture of the SLR, you would see that the shock mount is a moulded part of the frame, not bolt on 'chips' as on the HD.
    Why do you think the SLR is stronger than the HD? Read the blurb on Ibis' website on you'll find out a lot more!

    yeah, just looked at the mechanism and it makes more sense now. There are two "eyelets" on the HD where the Limbo (or obmil) mounts too. This, along with the shock choice sets the travel. There is only one eyelet on the SLR, thus one mounting option...

    Both bike are very strong. The HD is much stiffer still, just flexing both laterally and the rear wheels, the HD feels twice as stiff flexing. The center frames may be close in flex, the swingarm of the SL is stiffer than the SL, but not by much, the HD swingarm is much stiffer than the other Mojo models.

    The SL-R cannot fit limbo chips, there is one shock mount hole that appears the same as the SL and C.

    Limbo chips might be a good idea to allow shorter travel shock to match up with a 100 - 120 mm travel fork for an XC racer version without lowering the already very low BB much. SHimming the bottom travel of the current Mojo SL shock similar to the Fox Triad shock is done OEM for Specialized could do the same thing and work well using a shorter fork.
