BIG tires VS little bike: new shoes on the Mojo 3!

Now that I’ve got the geometry and suspension more dialed in on the little Mojo 3, it’s time to get into some of the finer details, and set this bike up to shred! I had been rocking a simple WTB Frequency i25 wheelset (only $240 here at Jenson USA: http://bit.ly/2J4MGXn) and it was working just…

Mojo Ti full bike check!

Alas! I finally got this rad bike onto some ripping singletrack! I might be dating myself here, but when I started riding in the mid 1990s, this type of bike was standard. And honestly, these cross country bikes are very capable! My first “real” bike had even steeper geometry than this Ibis, and I remember…

Comparing the DPX2 to the Float DPS and Float X2!

Check out the Fox DPX2 shock at Jenson USA here: http://bit.ly/2wtinU8 Let’s hit the trail and review this thing!  For context, I’ll be comparing this to the Fox Float X2 and to the Float DPS. Climbing: riders may set the blue compression adjustment lever in either open, mid, or firm settings.  Fully open is often…

Mojo Ti Build Vlog, Episode 2!

First struggle on the old bike: find a GOOD tire that will actually fit!  While I didn’t have to jump through many hoops, I did recycle some old rims I had that turned out to be one of the few options for this build.  They are a bit of a unicorn product in that they…
