This is my Ibis Mojo. The frame is from 1996 or thereabout.
I got it new on discount three years ago. The bike is set up to be race worthy
and reliable without any silly light parts.

There are some obvious weight saving options left open.
E.g. I don't want to replace the USE suspension post, it makes me faster.
I could change the derailleurs for XTR and save a few grams, but I haven't
been able to motivate myself yet. Maybe when the XT kit wears out.
I will change the seat for a "true" SLR though, which will save me
another 25 g or so. I use Eclipse Tubelesskit and relatively fat 2.0" Michelin
tyres with low pressure to cushion the rigid ride a bit.
I used to run 2.3" Continental Verticals, so the slightly narrower Michelins
are a bit of an experiment.
