I love my Endo to death but I got an offer for pro form on a 2011 Mojo SL. The mojo likely fits the majority of my riding well as the stuff behind my house is def XC. I would not have looked this way but the opp for a cheap bike I could sell end of summer is appealing and I need to upgrade the forks and brakes on my endo. Anyone ride both that can give me some input. I am a bigger guy and ride aggressive XC daily in my back yard with some AM on the weekends. I have a DT for heavier stuff.

I own an Endo and demo'd a Mojo for a day riding on my local trails. My gripes about the Mojo arose from, what I perceived to be, fit issues. No matter what I did the bike didn't fit me the way I wanted it to. My wife had the same feeling. It certainly wasn't as plush or active as the 4x4 linkage on the Endo is. Test ride a Mojo and see what you think. Putting the money directly toward your Endo might be a more worthwhile venture than farting around with getting the Mojo to work for you. Just my .02

Have not ridden both. I own a Mojo SL and have a Chilcotin on order, I weigh 185 lbs without gear. I consider the Mojo Sl to be a super fun bike for XC to light AM. The combination of lightweight, short wheelbase, and DW link suspension make for a very fun bike that climbs great, accelerates easily, and is still fun on easy to moderate downhill. I do recommend wider handlebars and PUSH tuned rear shock.

My short answer is I like my Mojo much more than I like'd my Endo, except for when pointed down.

Dusty thats kind of off and you know it. Both very high end bikes that both accommodate different riders.

My advice: Don't get the carbon bike. Take some fat off the Endo if you must. I would have warrantied/crash replaced several glue bikes by now, and I rarely crash. If you ride hard in chunk, frames take a beating.

I'd avoid one if your heavier or look at the HD. I'm light and the mojo works great, endo is a very fun bike to ride too but I just like the mojo more. I'm not worried about the carbon breaking, ibis failures are very uncommon.

if you look at the product review section, the word "flex" occurs 59x. most of those are denying any.

Also, DB reviewed the Mojo a couple of years back (before he took the job with Knolly) and reported that although he liked it, the rear end flexed noticeably. The demo ride was probably pre-Lopes-link, so ymmv.

I've tried the Mojo SL and I have a 08 Endo, and I prefer the Endo. I don't have anything solid to say this bike is better than that bike, but the overall feel I liked the Endo better.

I think that both bikes can be very good when set up properly, and which bike is best will depend on rider preference.
