    Passed DH Test - well my test at least

    May 2nd Opening day at Diablo - Mountain Creek NJ.

    Mojo passed with flying colors on beginner, intermediate, and expert. Granted, I'm 145 maybe 155 with gear and average rider at best. No drops greater than 3-4 feet and no jumps. Just table tops, and rock gardens, berms, and roots.

    On the Mojo for 3 runs. Switched with my nephew's Sinister R9 for 5 runs. He did not want to give it up. That's okay.

    My main concern was the rock gardens. The Mojo was light and responsive. I was able to maneuver the Mojo over the rough stuff as opposed to point and shoot with the R9.
    Didn't really feel the RP23 it bottom out, but I'm sure it did.

    Mojo (std) Fox RP23, Fox 36 Talas, Transition wheelset, Schwalbe Big Betty 2.4, Hope Mini 8" front, 6" rear.

    Very happy.

    Sounds good. I am a lot heavier and have a TALAS 32 (QR axles both ends) and recently had the chance to ride a few different DH trails. The bike was fine and when I could see or knew the terrain it went very well. Better than me.

    Yip.
    There's a feeling I get
    When I look to the West
    And my spirit is crying for leaving
