After the recent news that Fox Racing Shox would be ending its long-term relationship with Mojo Suspension and that Silverfish will be picking up the brand in the UK, today has seen the announcement that fork and shock servicing duties will be carried out by a team of ex-Mojo employees in the same South Wales premises as before.
The team is headed up by ex-Mojo employee Tim Williams, along with plenty of other experienced staff brought on to ensure no blip in service. In total 16 previous Mojo technicians and workers come across, including Adrian Phipps, James Bushell, Robert Powell, Anthony Boyd, Emily Perry, Tayah Williams, Tom Wheeler, Tom Davies, Luke Burnett, Jack Perry, Gareth Jones, Will Soffe, Todd Purnell, Ashley Thomas, Rachel Burridge and Bethan Large. You can meet the new team here.
Tim Williams, Silverfish’s Manager of FOX operations, commented: “I am tremendously excited to be moving into this new era with Silverfish. We all share a passion and love of mountain biking and the Fox team and I couldn’t have wished for a stronger industry partner. Whilst the name above the door might be changing, the team who have built such a valuable reputation and carry out such highly regarded daily service will remain the same, allowing us to seamlessly deliver the best customer support possible”.
Silverfish Managing Director Darren Mabbott commented: “This is a prestigious brand which sits perfectly alongside Silverfish’s established portfolio including Yeti Cycles, Mondraker, EVOC, Knog, and of course from the Fox stable; Race Face and Easton. Distributing high-end MTB brands since 1999 has meant that Silverfish frequently crossed paths with FOX, this shared heritage increased in recent years as the Fox and Yeti development collaborations deepened with the Switch Infinity project, giving Silverfish further insight into ‘the Fox way’. We’re excited, privileged and honoured to be furthering our Partnership with Fox in the UK and Eire.”
It is reported that Silverfish are promising the very same fast turnaround that dealers are used to and now has warranty claim registration live here.

The Future for Mojo?
It is reported that Mojo's main man Chris Porter will be continuing with a new company called Mojo Rising. According to a Cycling Industry News article, the new venture will offer expect suspension upgrade services and the creation of own label products where Chris' vast expertise and knowledge of custom tuning will no doubt be put to great use. We can bet that with the freedom to develop their own projects, the imagination of the team at Mojo will be rolling out some cool and innovative ideas very soon, including their own patentable damping solution with just 13 machined parts. They will also continue to keep looking at other ideas in conjunction with the Nicolai-partnered Geometron bike brand, exploring the slack head angle of the bikes further and pioneering development with customer's bikes.
Watch this space, we, for one, are excited about the future, the mould-breaking engineering and ideas that Porter and the team will bring the cycling industry.
