    I have heard people say to plan to spend another $500 if you go used.

    Seems to be the case even with a brand new one. What I found surprising with new bikes is that even front shocks can and do get upgraded right from the get go.
    The one thing I don't like about this used Mojo are the 26" wheels. I was looking forward to the 27".

    Mismatched wheels would bother me. LOL. It doesn't look like an XTR crankset. Why are the shifters mismatched?

    Get the new bike. It's a huge improvement over a 5 year old bike that sounds like it's been ridden hard.
    Bikes, lots'o bikes

    If I buy used like that, I would only do so as my secondary or as my 3rd bike. Even then, I wouldn't dump that amount.

    Thanks for the input guys. Greatly appreciated.
    So I got to see and ride the bike today. It had been bought at an auction (police auction i surmise as the seller was RCMP). It had needed various parts and pieces hence the different wheels, etc.
    It felt to small for me. I also noted that the rear shock felt very soft and I noticed some oily dust on it. The shock seem to give me close to 50% sag. A quick play with the settings didn't seem to do anything. I don't know enough about rear shocks to know if it was good or bad. It gave me bad vibes though.
    I would consider buying used and older but it would have to be from someone that knew and understood what they where doing/building. This one wasn't that.
    Well, bikes have come a long way from my slipping single speed from 50 years ago. What an instrument of torture that thing was, looking back in comparison to today's offerings.
    I past on this one today but will keep the Ibis in mind for my boys as they get old enough for an upgrade.
