Ibis Mojo All Mountain Full Suspension

Available At

DESCRIPTION

The XTR equipped Mojo Carbon weighs in at a slim and trim 24.7 lbs in a large. That's an astonishing weight for an all-mountain bike with 5.5" of travel front and rear. That's 140mm of travel front and rear for those of you over there in Europe. Oh and 11.2 KG. Ibis doesn't use any "cheater" lightweight parts to keep the weight down, either. These bikes are built to ride, right out of the showroom.

  • Carbon monocoque frame and swing arm
  • 5.5" (140mm) rear wheel travel
  • DW-Link Suspension
  • Forged and nickel-plated links
  • Easy to service pivots and bearings
  • Lightweight (sub 6 lb) frame, swingarm, rear shock; 25 lb complete bike weight

    Strength:

    Will last forever if you do not treat it bad. Mine has eaten more than 30K kilometres mostly mountain . Changed wheels to Mavic Crossmax SX, fork to Magura Thor and brakes to Shimano Saint M820. Magic Mary super soft 26x2.6 front and MountainKing 2.4 rear and have CushCore inserts.

    Weakness:

    Shock need to be serviced too often. Fox is overvalued by too many. Installed new Shock a Manitou Swinger 4-way air. Made the ride more pleasant. Shock is plush, and just plain fantastic compared to the shock delivered with the bike. I got tired of sending the Fox RP23 to Fox to have it serviced when damping disappeared and the bike started wobbling, so I bought a RockShox Monarch RT3, but silly me: the same thing happened with that and the RT3 also started leaking oil. Not as early in the life of the shock but still annoying and that is also a shock not really easily serviceable where I live. So I ordered a Swinger 4-way air as I heard it is easily serviceable for a do it yourself minded guy. Still waiting for the shock though and not really sure how easy it will be to get it installed but with 200x50 / 7.875x2 it is right size so it should be possible I think (otherwise I will soon have a new never used shock for sale). Problems with the RP23 and the RT3 are that they lost oil and stopped damping and started jumping like bouncing balls. They did not lose air but there was no damping in them. It happened so gradually that did not really notice it until I found oil on the frame and knew something was wrong and went to a bike shop where they told me that the shock need to be rebuilt and they could not do it, no other bike shop where I live and have asked would do it either. I should send it to factory. Price for shipping and rebuilding was silly but I still did it. While waiting for the Fox to come back I bought the RockShox and in the beginning it was fine. If you say that I should expect that shocks need service and rebuilding now and then and that I should be happy with the shocks as long as they were functioning I agree. What I am unhappy about is that the silly things don’t last longer. Shocks in cars last 20 years and they are damping a lot heavier loads. I never had problems with the Manitou Black 80-100mm fork and also no problems with the shock (which I do not remember the manufacturer of) on my first full suspension bike a Scott Strike Team HMF that was my ride from 2003 till somebody needed it more than I and stole it from my garage in 2010 when I bought the Ibis Mojo. At a good price since new models were available. Thank you

    One of the best all mountain bikes I have ridden. My bike has the Avid Elixir 7 brakes and Fox suspension build out. I have never had great luck with X Fusion shocks so I would advise against them. First thing I noticed on this bike is its extreme responsiveness. Even rode it 3 days downhilling including Whistler and it held up great. The big rocks will tend to bounce you around a bit more but that is expected since it is super light bike and not designed for burly downhill mountain riding. A truly great value for the price. No regrets with this purchase.

    Weakness:

    Hummm, I really don't notice weakness in this amazing bike.

    I've had many full suspension bikes. This is the art state trail/am bike. I use Fox 36 180 air and CCDB CS air, what makes the Mojo HD be so good almost as DH specific machines. After many years, finally, I believe had met my definitive "do it all" bike.

    Strength:

    Sexiest frame on the market, suspension design killer. I like the fact all efforts were put into the frame and ride quality and not parts like some other manufacturers do. Parts always wear out, replace as needed, the bike is worth it.

    Weakness:

    NONE

    Over 3 years of hard riding in ever condition imaginable, including heavy rain and snow, never a ride less that 3 hours. Not a single breakdown. She ascends as if she has wings, descends with a single minded purpose, to give you pleasure. Clean, inspect and service a bike at the end of every ride and you will catch things that wear out before they let you down. Everything is arite on my SL.

    Once tuned feels good to ride

    Weakness:

    Cost of bike, build, IBIS CUSTOMER SERVICE

    I will admit that this bike rides very well, however the build of the bike is somewhat suspect and after a year of moderate riding the bike has and is falling apart. Wheels, shocks, pivot bearings, etc have all had major service. Even worst is dealing with Ibis to rectify and issues. Not returning emails or phone calls or providing little guidance seems to be the norm... Looks as if Ibis is headed down the road of other boutique brands - High cost / poor service.

    Strength:

    Beauty, lightweight, excellent CS, agile handling, climb fast, downhill fast, efficient pedaling. I am so happy with this bike. Plenty stiff for me.

    Weakness:

    Head angle could be slacker, like 67.5deg instead of 69. can be done with works component. A bit nerveous for the first 4 rides.

    Mine is Ibis Mojo SL Special Blend, with xfusion velvet fork. At first, the fork was stiff, it took about 4 rides to break in. Now is performing very well. Coming from 32.5 lbs beast, this bike is light at 27lbs including gravity dropper, bottle cage, and mini pump on the frame. Climbing is fast, great handling all around, boost my confidence on some climb and drops. I cleared a climb that I never cleared before, and I did a drop that I never did, maybe because my mojo was elevated too.

    I got this bike a week before thanskgiving, first week wasnt too happy with the fork, after 5th and more rides, it feels great now. I am xc rider with light AM style, occasional drops under 3 ft.
    Price for Special Blend was great, cant complain for under $3000 with full carbon.

    Weakness:

    Cane Creek 40 headset sucks that came with it, OE tires leave something to be desired, and It wasnt free???

    Ive ridden and owned a ton of top name bikes. Im one of those guys that cant help himself and gets new bikes more than I should until now. I will not own another bike, period. I snagged a great deal on an upgraded 2012 Mojo HD 160 with XT components, upgraded wheels, Float 36 RC2/Float RP23 Kashima and Easton Carbon bars for under $4000 shipped new. This bike just blows me away. It can climb better than most every XC bike Ive owned, It descends better than any AM bike Ive ever owned. It weighs in right around 27lbs which for a 160mm travel bike with heavy duty components is incredible.

    The one suggestion I have, go with a 1x or 2x drive-train option like the SRAM XO. Mine came with the 3x10 XT and honestly you just don't need all those extra gears on this bike plus it made chain slap/drop chains an issue. Tires aren't the best and also the Cane Creek 40 headset is pretty crappy, doesn't stay tight.

    Other than those few issues this bike is honestly a do it all bike. I am impressed every time I take it out. The DW suspension is stunning, literally almost no pedal bob. Not to mention the aesthetics of this bike, I get stopped all the time on the trail asking about it. Just a piece of artwork if you ask me.

    Has not broken!!!! NOT ALUMINUM!!! High-tech materials with high technology fabrication
    and you have the IBIS mojo....sl or HD...dont care. Light strong and a perfect replacement for
    your BEERCAN BIKES.....ALUMINUM IS DEAD.....

    Weakness:

    Damage from rock hits... This is easily SOLVED by flipping your bike upsidedown and layering some clear SILICONE glue under the downtube and under your chainstais and BB area.
    This bounces any rocks off of this carbon frame and offers a perfect rubber protective coating
    that can be customized by any owner.....I have it 1/4" thick where any rocks typically hit frames.

    This is a follow-up review after 2.5 years of HARD RIDING...I am 200lbs and do not "Jump"
    over anything....I have Broken EVERY ALUMINUM FRAME I have owned within ONE year
    of ownership. I am now DONE with aluminum frames....This frame does it all.. I must say the FLEX issue is non- existant......I believe the flex is only the combonation of the rear end sinking
    into its travel along with the wheel itself that the person is running.....Its the combo dummy....the rear end is solid and bomber.. This frame with a top end fork is not touchable....beautiful.
    Thanks Scott Nicol for coming back to your roots....I am impressed......
