hmmm... almost bought this frame you have. i 've got a small one. having said that i will give my 0.2c:
an ibis is perfect w/ xtr. an utilitarian build. xc pro? hmmm... why? it is not good enough. xtr is much better. that frame is soooooo good, so sweet that it deserves to be ridden. not become a vintage queen.
xtr m950 would be perfect against the orange. plus it's plain better than m900. lighter, stiffer and it matches the vintage of that mojo. w/ v brakes.
now, one thing that really bothers me w/ your list:
the frame is corrected for a 2.5in fork and i would not hesitate in fitting an 80mm z2 bomber up front. it will make the bike more agressive and fluid.
THE TANGE SWITCHBLADE WILL TOTALLY SCREW UP THE HANDLING. it will steepen the head angle. the mojo may be the best steel frame ever made and it's geometry is the real deal. don't ruin it w/ the wrong fork. build it as the total fast singletrack magic machine it's designed to be.
ti itm stem? get something stiff like race face stem or syncros and low rise bars. you want total control of that handling and forget ti seatposts cause they are just chi chi..
make it a rider! please...


congrats on that frame.
