    Ibis 650B?

    A picture from the Ibis Thanksgiving. Sure looks like a 650b on the left.

    The bike on the left is another Ripley IMO.

    That looks like Lopes in the right. I thought he was 26'er all the way. He's on record as a being a 29'er detractor

    Maybe not 27.5??

    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    Ripley would have been hot 1+ yrs ago. It's now another me too 29er, may be DOA. Ibis needs a purpose built 27.5 asap.

    I think that is another ripely. Head tube looks the same. I think overall height difference has to do with one guy leaning on the fork and lopes standing up.

    It would be interesting to hear directly from the horses mouth his take on the HD 650b. Lopes on any wheel other than 26" is big news for mtb industry. Ibis would be smart to market the crap out of whatever Lopes like for trail and AM. Big shakeup either way
