    So I guess the new Mojo can take the XX 26-39 chainrings? With XTR front derailleur?

    Verbatim from Ibis Website...

    http://www.ibiscycles.com/about/news/ibis_2011/

    Smaller 2x10 chainring combos
    XX and X9 2x10 kits will come with 39/26T chainring combinations
    XX and X9 2x10 kits will come with either an XTR or an XT front derailleur
    XTR 2x10 will come with a 40/28T combo (XTR also available as a triple)
    2011 XTR will arrive in our warehouse in October

    ...presume this means the 26-39 Sram (Truvative) 2x10 will work, provided you use a Shimano front derailleur...anyone with any experience on this one?

    Tahoe,
    Sorry to jump on to this one but I also have a question. Will the 26/39 work on a 2009 or 2010 Mojo SL. My XTR drive train is getting worn out and I'd like to try 2x9 with the small chainrings.

    A lot of us are using 2x9 setup. I woudl think the only issue is having the correct ratio of granny to middle if you're nto using the 'standard' 22/32/(44) setup, an dbeing able to move the shift up on the frame enough if you are gonna really use large gears. I have a ton of space to move the XTR derailer up right now if I wanted... I ony wish I could move it down (22/32) right now since the big ring is gone...

    i'm running 28/38 with 9 speed 11-34 in the back and i have no problems. i use an XT front derailleur and set the limit screws to limit my old XTR 950 front shifter to two clicks. I seem to have fewer issues with chainsuck now as well.

    i'll be switching to a 2x10 drivetrain for 2011 so I'm interested to know what will work. I really prefer the smaller chainring gap (28-38 as opposed to 26-39).

    Ok great news. Just so I'm clear. My 2009 MojoSL will be fine with a XX 39/26 crank and a Sram 2x10 direct deraileur with adapter? Correct??? Are the adapters a special order or do they come with the deraileur?
    Sorry to the guys who understand this compatibility thing with ease.

    Don't worry, it is confusing!

    Yes, what you describe will work, adapters are just coming out and and may not be available just yet though.

    Also note the recent revision to the document that includes the 3x10 clamp mount Shimano FD as an option for the SL with XX. The direct mount SRAM is 1st choice due to having more clearance in deep travel when running big ring to the top 2 cogs (to avoid chain rub when pedaling through seated G-outs), but the clamp mount Shimano also works. You have to mount it a little high, but our engineer ran it for a year without issues.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the reply Hans. I see the revision "or 2nd choice 3x10 Shimano clamp" that you made and I guess that even though the 3x10 is made for a triple crank, you are saying it could be used on a 2x10? Correct? I'm so sorry to pester you. I'm real good at HealthCare cuz I do it all day every day. But this MTB stuff is not easy for me to understand I think I'm getting it

    Hi Hans,

    I have a Mojo HD with a Race Face Sixc 24/36/Bash. I had to go with a SRAM Xgen Front Derailleur to get it to behave properly. I tried an XT 10 speed derailleur and couldn't get it to work. Is there anything else I can do?

    Not sure why that wouldn't work.

    Feel free to email to get help sorting it out.

    Quick question on the Front Derailleur size for the MojoHD - is it 31,8mm or 34.9mm I should get?

    hans, it looks like Sram is making a low direct mount and a high direct mount. which one is Ibis making an adapter for?

    The mount location and the adapter that emulates it are a constant.

    The FD style we use is high mount.

    Sorry to throw yet another question at you, but will a Shimano SLX M667 Front Derailleur Bottom Swing front der work on the HD? I am a little concerned that I might not be able to get it low enough on the seat tube.

    Bottom swing, top pull, high clamp, that's what you want... probably.... ridiculous nomenclature and variety, I know...

    It depends on some other stuff too... chainring size, 2x, 3? Further up this thread there's a link to a spreadsheet that you can check:

    Hi Hans,

    I have a 2010 SL with the XX clamp FD running 28/42.

    If I get your new direct mount adapter, a new direct mount XX derailleur, and 26/39 chainrings will I be able to get the 1-3mm gap to the chainrings spec'd by SRAM? Is the 1-3mm range the best spacing to run on the SL?

    Right now the lowest I can go is 5.5mm gap to the 28/42 with the clamp FD.

    I see for the 2011 SRAM direct mounts there are S1, S2, and S3 versions available. Which one will be needed for use with the Ibis adapter?

    Also, I am curious if you guys have figured out any way to get some kind of a bashring/bashguard setup for the XX 2x10? Maybe something like the MRP XCG?

    Thanks!

    NONE OF THESE, You will want the Shimano high direct style. The 'S' direct mounts are all different and mount low on the frame. SRAM is also supporting a Shimano standard direct mount that looks like a square with a slot and a hole in it.

    Also, I am curious if you guys have figured out any way to get some kind of a bashring/bashguard setup for the XX 2x10? Maybe something like the MRP XCG?

    There is currently no way to run a bash on XX.

    Thanks!

    Well, I was wanting to go to 26/39 at some point, but the trail gods decided I should go for it sooner rather than later...

    Thanks to the integrated XX spider some trail debris managed to turn the right crankarm on my 28/42 XX crankset into a piece of broken rubbish yesterday (that is unless you like running 1x10 with a 42 tooth front...).

    I guess I'm going to replace it with a X.0 26/39 to get close to the same weight as the XX but with a replaceable spider (fool me once...). I wish I could keep the 156Q though!

    My plan now is to run a XT 3x10 clamp derailleur with the 26/39 and see how that goes.

    Talk about some crappy luck. I was hoping to hold out for the new direct mount adapter, but I have some rides planned over Thanksgiving so I will just overnight the X0 crankset & XT clamp setup in.

    I got everything setup tonight. I see what Hans means about the chain rubbing the Shimano 3x10 front derailleur (FD-M771-10) in the big ring (39T X0) & largest two cogs under full suspension compression. The chain rubs up against the cable fixing bolt & lever arm on the XT derailleur. I can't be sure, but from pictures it looks like the arm on the SLX derailleur might be a bit shorter & more curvy (also the cable fixing bolt is on the side instead of the front).

    If I had to do it over again I'd be tempted to try the SLX derailleur instead of the XT. It's not a big deal though, and I'm not really sure the SLX would fix the problem anyway.

    The front derailleur setup was otherwise pretty easy. It has about 4mm of gap to the big chainring. I was able to trim it so that it only rubs the cage while in the big ring & smallest two cogs.

    For right now this is all from observations on the stand with the shock bled down. I'll have a chance to ride it tomorrow and see what else I did wrong.

    Well, I'm having a heck of a time getting the front XT derailleur setup properly. I thought I had it adjusted right on the stand yesterday but it has issues shifting onto the big ring now.

    Mostly it just doesn't want to shift up onto the big ring. The chain will start to grab but doesn't have enough umph to get up there. If the cage is adjusted out excessively you can get it to move far enough, but then it seems to want to pin the chain between the inside edge of the cage and the big ring. I have tried moving the clamp up and back down, angling it back and forth, etc. No luck so far. The cage shape just seems to be a little different than what it needs to be to work properly.

    Maybe I'm just missing something. I'll spend some more time on it tomorrow.

    Any suggestions from someone using the Shimano 3x10 derailleur with the 26/39 SRAM 2x10 crankset would be welcomed.

    Maybe you'll have better luck if you raise it a little. The shape of the cage is a bit different and you might get more lift from the cage plate shape if you raise it.
    Good luck,
    Hans

    Thanks for the response Hans. I messed around with the XT derailleur for a couple of hours this morning with no luck. I just never could get it to shift correctly, no matter the position or rotation I set it at.

    I ended up filing on the bottom of the XX derailleur so it would sit a hair lower and am using it for now. The chain rubs the back of the cage on the bottom 4 cogs when in the 26T gear. That is with the suspension fully dropped in the stand, but I imagine the rub isn't quite as bad with some compression. At least the XX derailleur shifts up and down no problem.

    I shot you an email about getting the instructions for modifying the XX derailleur to lower it. I want to see if you guys do something different than I tried.

    Thanks!

    Thought I'd share some pics of a Medium HD I finished today at the shop.

    X0 28/42 with an XT front derailleur.

    Lined up and shifts perfectly.

    Sorry for the blurry phone pics...

    Updated the matrix!

    There's a new Shimano FD out that solves a lot of problems.

    The Shimano FD667 is a new SLX FD with more clearance for full suspension and a higher clamp position that allows the cage to go lower accommodating smaller chainrings.

    It allows you to run a 38 or 39T large chain ring on a 2x Shimano or SRAM 38 or 39t set up with the FD down to the normal clearance with the large ring.

    When the suspension runs through it's travel the chain does not rub the FD except for in the largest 2 cogs on the cassette at 90% travel, much better than other designs.

    Cheers!

    Hi Hans,

    Will that FD-M667 derailleur work for the Mojo SL with the SRAM 39/26? I see it's only listed under the HD column.

    I'm still looking for a better setup than the XX front derailleur (I gave up on the 3x10 Shimano).

    It seems that I'm going to have a nice collection of front derailleurs by the time I get something that works well...

    Thanks

    Yes it works great. I've updated the matrix to reflect that...

    Direct mount FD adapters in stock.

    The answer is now Yes to 2x with the smaller chainrings. You can use this direct mount front derailluer adapter and get it just right.

    "Sram 2x10 direct with adapter or 2nd choice Shimano FD667 SLX clamp"

    So i am assuming that the phrasing "2nd choice" means the FD667 is a little less optimal? Or is there really no difference either way?

    The SRAM set up is better shifting with the SRAM FD.

    The SLX derailleur doesn't shift all that great. It's kind of acceptable, but not great.

    I will be trying the SRAM setup with the Ibis adapter eventually, but for now I'm tired of messing with front derailleurs and will just stick with the SLX since it is mostly working.

    How low does the adapter+SRAM FD allow the FD cage to go? I am currently running 26/36 rings on my Mojo SL - would the SLX FD or the SRAM be th way to go for the lowest position? Also, don't any of the 2011 XTR FDs get as low as the SLX? Not happy with my current XT FD, dropping the chain outside the "big" ring a bit too easily.

    Are you running the SRAM 2x10 26/39 or some kind of 26/36 with a bashguard?

    The SLX FD hangs down really low compared to other derailleurs, and you can easily smash it down into the big ring on the 26/39, but I bet the adapter will let you do the same with the SRAM derailleur (just a guess, but it looks like it). The shape/throw of the SLX cage isn't exactly right though, and sometimes it is hesitant to shift when you're in the biggest cog or two in the back.

    With your set up the SLX should give the best results.

    Rotor 3D, it's a 2*9/10 crankset, so no bashguard. Need a better 36 though, this one is actually a small ring from a compact road crankset = no shift ramps or pin on the outside to pick-up the chain if dropped... Thanks for the input Hans and Okie - any reason you recommend SLX over SRAM Hans?

    Putting 2x10 on my Mojo, grabbed GXP BB, X0 26/39 crank thanks to Hans and the guys and the solution from PS.

    Question on spacers. My old XTR I was 2 spacers on the drive side but the XO appears to show one on each for a 68 mm BB. Any feedback?

    Also the crank has two hex keys on the non-drive side. The 8mm is to tighten the arm to the spindle and preload. What is the larger one for it has a torque spec on it but I will be damned if there is anything in the instructions

    Thanks

    SRAM has a different system entirely and you're right, one spacer on each side

    That outer one traps the inner one so it can be used to REMOVE the cranks as well.

    Thanks thought I was going nuts for a second missing something, the cutaway shows things clearly, although finding a hey key that big may be a challenge if needed. Removal appears easily done with the single 8mm.

    The PS solution for the front DR appears to be spot on will know when I get the rest assembled today. I am a little worried about getting enough swing inboard for the front DR to get on the smaller ring the DR clearance to the seat tube is very small and will hit limiting the inward swing. So I many have to see if pushing the PS collar up and pulling the DR down on the mount will allow for a little more swing in.

    Looking forward to finding a patch of ground without a foot of snow to test it out...

    I've got a FD question for my HD:

    I am running a 2011 HD with a new XTR Trail 26 - 38 front. I'm presently running a 2o11 Dyna M770 XT front der limited for two rings. It shifts well and I can run almost the entire range in both front rings, BUT the front der. guide does sit quite a far (about 6mm) above the 38 chainring. I've not had an issue with this, but it looks too far away.

    A few questions:

    Is it acceptable as is with the XT front being 5 - 6mm from the chainring when the XT der is as low as it will possibly go? What's the downside if any to running like this?

    Do I need to use a different FD? Possibly new M986 XTR 2 x FD? If not, what FD do you suggest?

    Thanks,
    Tony

    On the MOJO SL it says to use the high FD DM Sram XO with XX drive train 26/39. Does this mean the HO DM sram xo will work? kinda confused with the S1 S2 S3 or H0. Just trying to order the correct one.

    Yes, HO with the Problem Solver direct mount adapter available on the Ibis web store.
