As seen on local trails on it's shakedown ride.


Sweet bike dude! I bet you'll spend less time on your hardails now ;)

Sorry we didn't wait on the way back.

Jeff,
If you decide you don't like it let me know. I'd love to have the white frame.
But I have a feeling I'll be waiting for ever.....

You Got Some Splain'n To Do!

So far so good, this was my first ride with it.

The bike climbs really well and seems to soak up all bumps at speed. can't wait for a few more rides now.
:nono: :skep: :eekster: Kiddee wheels! You got some splain'n to do Lucy!

Sigh..........so it would seem you've strayed from the 29er flock. Oh well, we'll always remember you fondly @ the 29er board. Well, maybe not YOU, but certainly Carmen's brownies anyway.

Nice bike! Hope it's everything you could hope for:thumbsup:

Schweet ride. On a different note, where this world is coming too? Next TNGR would be dominated by Mojos? There are other bikes available you know ;)

Damn.....the white is a smokin' color. It's flashy but not over the top. Problem is, if I had that color, I probably wouldn't ride it. It's too pretty to wreck!

What front fork is on there? Not trying to hijack this thread but I am getting closer to getting one myself. Is it worth spending the extra money for a 150mm talas or stick with the rock shox that comes with it? Just curious. Like the white but going to get the orange mojo. There are people that like the orange and those that hate it. There are also people who like Neil Diamond and those that hate him. I love him and might name my bike Caroline in his honor, well maybe.

Damn.. That looks HOT! Carmen gets a new bike and then you show up with a Mojo. Nice colors with the blue highlights.

Look like you went all weight weenie, except for the Lyric fork and Nokian casing. :thumbsup: That seat looks painfully under padded. Nice strategic place for the waterbottle. It makes sense to stick a water bottle there even when it's empty.

The Mojo really surprised me when I test rode it. Pedaled and climbed like my Blur, but was super stable going down and over the rough stuff. Sounds like the Mojo-ians have another believer.

Lookit those little wheels!!! Aren't they cute? Jus' needlin' ya. That bike does look very nice Jeff! But man, you are so tall, and the 26" wheels look like you have a mini-bike! I didb't like white bikes until after I got my '03 Enduro Pro - then they grew on me. Thinking my next bike, if it has paint, will have white in the scheme... When is Ibis going to build a 29" Mojo? I might be interested in FS again if they do - but for now thinking it may have to be a RIP9 if I get one... A white RIP9 would look nice. I especially like the blue trim with it on the Mojo. So - what'd Carmen get?

I think that's his budget build...

It sure is a nice lookin bike. Let us know how the front end stiffness of the bike with the fork, TA and wheel when you hit some real trails with it.

Not quite a BMX bike with the small 26" wheels, but it sure turns quicker then my 29ers and the 20mm axle fork feels really nice.

I do plan to build a 650b front wheel for it, I just need to pick up a 20mm front hub and spokes, I already have a Stans 650b 355 rim sitting at home.

BTW: this is Carmen new ride, http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=528322

I just finished building one yesterday from mostly spare parts. It's for kid hauling duty, though, and currently has little skinny hybrid tires on it so it looks awfully funny. ("Funny" - "Lame" in this case.)

Don't remember who's up after me.

I guess this is the new-DW-link-bike thread now...

This was ordered after Jeff's mojo, but put together earlier - two weeks of riding on it so far, and I like it (but taking a little time to get used to small-wheels again)
