Been a while since I posted here and as I'm thoroughly enjoying this new (to me) frame, thought i'd share the build.

The basic idea behind the purchase was to improve on my 2007 SC Superlight (120mm forks) which rides brilliantly but occasionally gets out of its depth down rocky ish trails where it feels a bit flexy. After one ride on the Mojo it was clear that I've got 95% of where I want it to be.

It can be ran with 27.5 wheels and this is one of the reasons I got the forks to allow for a wheel upgrade, but it rides so well as is I don't think I'll bother.

It handles very well indeed and is only 1lb heavier than the SC, depsite the rather chunky forks.

Not the best pic. Have been too busy riding it not taking pictures :D

Other info: Not entirely happy with the adjustment thing for the rear shock. Neve use it in anything than Trail mode. Want to remove the cable and go to a more normal lever to clean up the bars and remove an unsightly thing.

May also upgrade the brakes to Zee / Saint and go to 1x11 when Shimano get the big cassette out.
