I purchased an Ibis Ti Mojo a few years ago. It was an ebay auction with poor photos and the Seller basically had no feedback record. It finished with no bids. I contacted the Seller after the close of the auction and we agreed on a price of around $1000 USD, he sent me basically a complete bike with mostly XTR M900 stuff, Rock Shox Mag 21 fork.

I have been wishy washy about how to build it up. At first I thought it would be all M900 stuff. Finally, I decided to get light parts but keep it sturdy in the right places.

I have most or all of the parts for it, so time to build her up.

I believe it's a 1994, size XL 21" to top of ST. Here is the frame:

My friend is currently building up the wheels.

I don't expect these rims to last very long but for the initial build I decided to green light them...they are light and pretty. I've never ridden TNT hubs. I was looking for a set of Hope titanium hubs, perhaps in the future.

Not with these fragile rims.

We are going with steel spokes.

Probably down the road if/when I toast these rims, I will run a stronger rim with Ti spokes.

Absolute stunning!

I have the same T.I.B. rims on red King hubs on my KHS TiLite (built up with mostly red ano parts (king hubs and hs, avid ultimate levers, kooka rings) and ti parts (syncros post, russian ti cranks cqp lookalike, moots stem, whitebros riser, rigid fork) - they are my most beloved rims (ok, on the grove I have the 231 CDs and on the Buck 217 ceramic)
