    Mulleted Mojo 3 and Speculation on what's next for the Mojo

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm wondering if anyone has or is running a 29er up front?
    Anybody have any insight on what might be next for the mojo?

    Some one on here has put a 130 29Ē fork and wheel on the front before but havenít heard much about it. I have thought about it for mines since Iím running a lot of spacers and riser bars I was thinking I could do 130 with no spacers under the stem and be fairly close to the same height.

    I've thought of running 700x40c gravel tires on mine, does that count?

    Love my M3. Honestly, just hoping for slighter longer, 66HTA, 76STA and pretty much the same elsewhere...maybe 5mm higher BB.

    I've tested the Ripmo, new Ripley, SB100, SB150. Being 5'5" I'm still not sold on 29er, but I AM sold on steep STA for climbing.

    When I had a Mojo 3, I put a 120mm 29'er fork on for a couple of days just for fun. It had similar axle to crown of the 140mm 27.5 fork.

    My impressions were that I hated it. The rollover in front was really nice but it just screwed up the geometry and the bike really wanted to push through corners and was hard to ride aggressively. It was just a quick mess around experiment so I didn't try to dial it in at all or even calculate how the geometry changed.

    As someone with short legs who buzzes the rear 29" tire not infrequently, I'm interested in this mullet bike thing but my only experiment didn't go so well.

    I'm not really sure what is in store for the Mojo 3. They came out with new colors but no other changes for this year so I'm not holding my breath.
