    Mojo 29er, What would you like to see?

    I have been demoing alot of 29ers lately and really enjoy the ride. If/When Ibis comes out with one what would you like to see?

    Here are my suggestions.

    5" Full Suspension with geometry designed around a 130mm fork.
    6lb frame weight
    Tabs for a command post
    Tapered Head Angle
    142mm x 12mm Rear
    69.5 Head Angle
    Integrated BB for shorter chainstays.

    I'd rather see a true DH race bike! Take more of the learnings from the HD apply it to what DW knows from the Iron Horse Sunday and produce a killer DH bike with the Ibis touch!

    Is there even a market for 29ers?

    pivot already has the phoenix, I don't see ibis making a dh bike. 29fs or 29 tranny would be good.

    I just it don't think it make financial sense to make a carbon DH bike right now. I have a feeling it is in the works, but a 29er will be like the HD. It will be backordered and sell out when it is announced which is great for Ibis.

    I know for a fact a 29er is coming but I have no clue what it will look like.

    I'd rather see a 29er that's more race focused. The regular Mojo and SL can already be built to the perfect trail bike.

    Not to derail your thread but, what do you think about a Mojo designed around 650b wheels?

    To say you know for a fact is a pretty bold statement. Do you work for Ibis or have a strong connection? Personally, I am with you. I want Ibis to build an XC 29" that I can race with. Something that will line up well against the Spec. Epic.

    Actually it is a fact. I spoke with the guys at Ibis during there demo and they said they are working on a 29er, although they don't have a release date, plus Hans has stated on this forum that a 29er is in progress.

    bike parts and shuttling is getting more and more popular these days and the HD isn't really the answer.

    I spoke with the owner, he said a 4-5" travel bike is coming out late winter (feb/mar).

    4 inch travel max for 29'r. Just my 2 cents. Talk amongst yourselves.

    Current demand for the platform and dedicated forks are hurdles, but the HD140 looks perfect for 650b anyway. White Bros 2011 forks look promising too.

    4" full squish, lockout on the rear

    After riding a few I've been sorely tempted to sell my Mojo Sl for a SuperFly 100. However the GF continues to have problems with frame cracking and the SL is much better on the descents.
    So if I were placing an order it would be for 4+ travel in the rear with full lock out (old RPL), matching front suspension, same geometry (or a steeper HA with more rake) as the Mojo. I know there are a lot of hard tail fans but the versitility of full squish would make this a great distance/endurance racing bike.

    re. Mojo 29er, What would you like to see?

    HD inspired limbo chip compatible frame for a 100mm travel race setup, or a 120-130mm all mountain setup. 18" max chainstay length....shorter would be even better if possible. Of course, tapered steerer and rear thru-axle is a given. Clearance for Nev 2.35's and WTB 2.5's.

    What 130mm 29'r fork is 130mm? 69.5 is too steep for a 5" travel bike. Short stays will be very tough with DW and 5" travel.

    Make the rear axle a Maxle for ease of wheel removal.
    Nothing to see here.

    Yes, missed that. It should be based on the Reba 140 and yes, the rear 12mm Maxle would be sweet. I think a 140HD 29er would be the ticket.

    I will buy one as soon as they release it. I have been waiting for either ibis to release a 29er or Niner to release a carbon rip 9. I am guessing Ibis will be the first to it. Hopefully we will know something soon. If their 29er is anywhere near as good as the Mojo, I will be psyched.

    130mm Rocky Shox Reba is available with tapered steerer and 20mm axle
    69.5 to me is perfect for a 29r with 130mm of travel. Give snap in the twisties and still give something on the downhill. I just checked Niner WFO and Stumpies FSR. Stump is 69.5, but has a custom offset fork.
    You are right, I'm very curious to see how they can get around short stays with the DW link. I think a good start is to have a intergrated bottom bracket. If they could fit a 17.25-17.5 stay I would be happy.

    If anything, 69.5 deg is on the slack side for 29ers....anyway, I'm not about to try and coach Scot and the gang on making a bike handle nice... I'm on Ibis #3 and sold and rode many others back in the day....and they all handled great....disappeared beneath you, so I trust them fully to get it right.

    i think you guys are on the right track with this. the 29er movement is still expanding and starting to encompass the "AM" format. an "HD" style 29er would likely be immensely popular. it's the bike i'm waiting for to finally drag me over the 29er scene.

    now i'm headed over to the suspension forum to lobby for a RS Lyrik29 140....

    DW Link, 4" travel
    Tapered headtube
    142 x 12 mm Maxle rear
    <= 5 lb frame + shock
    BB30

    Basically, a light, stiff, efficient endurance racer's dream bike. Mix a Pivot 429 (stiffness, handling) with the Sultan (smooth suspension performance).

    I'd buy this setup in a heartbeat--probably relegating my DW Sultan to AM duties.

    What about the ability to change the travel from 5.5 to 4" using Limbo chips and different shock lengths.

    X2. 4" 29er has been done by most already. I want to see a 140mm 29er with limbo chip to 100mm. It would be more go anywhere 29er.

    Nobody at Ibis has ever called the 29er a Mojo.
    Honestly, based on DW's new Split-Pivot patent and some of Hans' comments, it probably will be something other than a big-wheel Mojo, even though it may share some of the Mojo's er... mojo.
