    Mojo HD in BLACK shipping?

    I'm waiting for a MOJO HD in black. I've read some rumors on here that they have only shipped like 8 of these or something? Is anybody (besides the 2 in the HD build thread) getting delivery of their black HD's? Is there a problem with this color (HANS?). I'm wondering if I should give up and go white. I really don't want to though as the black suits me best.
    Just wondering how many of us are waiting for them and how many of us are ACTUALLY getting them. I'm told my wait could be anywhere from January to March.
    Thanks in advance!

    Regarding HDs, we're shipping quite a lot of them (all colors, including black) now in the medium and large sizes. It's been slow on the small and XL but should pick up soon.

    If you want to reduce the wait, generally white and green will reduce the wait by a couple of months and in some cases can be shipped right away or in a few days.

    I ordered my wife a black Mojo HD in July which was supposed to ship this month. Last week in Moab my wife saw a white w/blue links Mojo SL and said "that's the color I want when I get an HD" Luckily her new one hadn't shipped and my lbs called Ibis and changed the order. The white will be here next week,,,,but she won't know until Christmas.

    Thanks for the answer Hans! Maybe the problem is that most orders are for Black and therefore they can't keep up? That's understandable if that's the case. I have a Large Black with Black links frame only on order......

    I've had a large black HD on order for damn near 6 months. I'm getting to the point of considering looking at other frame options if it doesn't get here by the end of October. I made the mistake of selling my other long travel bike right after I placed the order for my Mojo HD. HUGE mistake! C'mon Ibis, you're killin me here!

    Why not change the frame color to white or green and get one quicker as Hans recommended? Color isn't that big of a deal if you are without a bike.

    Hans, was there a problem with QC @ the factory for the matte black HD's or something? Just seems like an insanely long wait time for these; even for those that have had them ordered for the better part of a year... once it finally gets here I might have a stroke haha

    If you look at a theard by Hans, you'll see the black color was not approaved until recently (the other colors were all shipping). Stunned that people who order last november are just getting them now (post above). I wouldn't be that patient....

    If the color wasn't approved, they shouldn't have taken orders for it. At the least, they could have said something like....."We have plans to produce a Matt Black Carbon frame. It is not yet in production, but you're welcome to pre-order this color."
    Seems like people were under the impression that they'd get it as fast as any other color but I don't know that. They did tell my dealer when I ordered that there would be a lengthy wait for Black so I knew up front.
    All I know is that I want my bike!

    Thank you so much. I was able to contact them and swoop on it (it was a large)! Canceled my other order at Cambria that has been in since June....
