Yes, this is Sherwood's demo bike. The Fox shock that came with the bike was making an awful clunking noise so it is out of repair. This rear shock was in the garage and it seems to match up with the Reba TA very well. The Fox shock is out for repair.1red1 said:Did you get it from Ventana direct? I noticed it has a rockshock rear shock. I have a El Rey that I got from them, just wondering if Sherwood is working with rockshock? AND.. how is it compared with the El Rey? You are the perfect guy to ask, since you have done rides on both.
The weight is 27.7 lbs with Look Quartz pedals.Duzitall said:Very nice. Size small? Know the weight as pictured?
I wanna ridei it too
Yes, I rode it like this a few times. The 650 wheel in the front is more agile and easier to get used to when alternating from a 26er bike. But the 29er wheel in front tracks better and laughs at little obstacles.MMcG said:Did ya ride it with dual 650bs as well? if so, did you prefer one set up over the other?
One the my dings against 69er bikes is they look funny. This one actually looks well-proportioned.ATBScott said:Well Francis - SOMEBODY asked the question - YOU! (I'd have to say it sounds like you're talking to yourself!) Looks pretty cool - had to look closely to see the different sized-wheels... Actually looks pretty balanced!
Ray, you have a 650/29er Mojo? Have I missed it by not visiting the 650 forum lately?Rainman said:I tried this same exact thing with the Ibis Mojo i'm currently testing. It works very well.
The Jet 9 is a fast and agile bike. The three inches of travel in the rear is very active and it is a very efficient pedaler. The suspension is plush but it ramps up pretty quickly at the end of the travel.1-bar said:how does it compare to your Jet9?

Thank you for the dems fc. You were a part of my insperation to try smaller bikes. I am really digging riding small frames with big wheels these days. I'm 6'-0".
