I just sold my IBIS MOJO after almost 3 years of absolute joy. The only problem I had, was for the past 6 months it creaked and creaked and I couldn't get it to stop. It was so loud that I could even hear it with my tunes on.

I ordered a 575 w/ carbon rear. What do you think? Did I make a mistake? Something else I should have ordered?

Ride the 575 first and the answer will become clear...
FYI- the 575 is not immune from creaks but it's usually the components (and not the frame) that caues the creaking...

of course you made a mistake - you sold a perfectly good frame that you liked only because your bike creaked. My 575 creaks sometimes - one time it was seatpost, another time cranks, another time fame needed new bearings.. everything is fixable but no bike is immune to creaks.

I agree with the other comments about the creak!.
As for the 575 ?, it'll all depend on your riding style and the terrain.
The Mojo is a great ride on the lighter side of AM. It out climb and out peddal the 575 for sure. If you ride in the rough and espcially downhill, you may find your new bike as a nice improvement IMO.
Tell us what you think when you get it.
