Ibis Mojo 7/4/11 update

Ibis out in the green bushIbis out in the green bush of NSW Australia

Long time since last update of the all carbon Ibis Mojo SL, had it for 14 months now, it seems to have a few fans with your comments!

Its still going well, been ridden 2-5 times a week so its getting a larger amount of riding that most bikes so will show its wear. Drive train now needs replacing as its 100% worn but that normal for this much riding over 14 months. Not sure to replace just the worn bits with more XT bits or start swapping in some XTR bits and swap to the new 10 speed on the rear.

There was a slight creaking from the forks/headset area but this was fixed up by the shop I bought it from in Sydney’s CBD. Apparently its know for FOX forks to develop creaking sometimes. Was fixed up with some lube and some tightening.

Off for some more rides.

  1. Def go the XTR upgraded drivetrain if you would like to drop a bit of weight… The 10 spd XTR cassette is very light, the new rear derailleurs have an anti chain slap mechanism, very trick..
    so the list would go
    1. XTR 11-36 cassette
    2.XTR Rear derailleur with Clutch
    3.10 spd chain
    4.XTR right hand Shifter.. You can get away with using the existing LH shifter, Cranks and F derailleur if they are not too worn.
    cheers big ears

    1. Can I go 2 ring at the front and 10 speed at the back on my bike ok?
      When my bike was at service at Sydney Bike Depot last week they had a few customers bikes in with the new Shimano anti slap rear derailleur (the ones with the clutch) and they were all broken from owners hitting sticks or rocks with the derailleur and it not moving up and snaps the cage. They recommemed against them.
      Need help looking up the exact parts on chainreaction and building my shopping basket.

  2. Aloha,
    Yeah you can keep your existing cranks and just remove the granny ring. Especially if you get the new 11-36 cassette which gives you and extra low climbing gear (36 cog).
    Jeez that the first ive heard about the clutch type derailleurs breaking easier.. I think if you get any stick caught in there, its gonna break.. Up to you though, if chain slap bothers you..
    Im in Maui at the mo with no phone, just shoot an email.
