    Let The Fun Begin Tranny29

    Alright, I finally finished it. 22.4lbs(with pedals) and it rides great. Here are a few more pics of the finished bike.The cable routing looks super clean, but I am not looking forward to replacing the housing It was a great first ride, two Strava KOM's, one climbing and one DH. These are small local segments Oh and my hand still hurts when squeezing the grips.

    Looks great!

    I wonder if there are any plans to offer blank cable ports, for those that are unused.

    I read that they were going to have those available, I have not checked on it though. I hit them up to see if I can get them. I guess I could just put black electrical tape on them so water doesn't get in the frame.

    Awesome! I really want a Tranny 29 but a Lugi' would make more sense as could double up for road duties.

    Shane Ibis didn't do a green or orange or even classic white!

    You should probably get both bikes, then you wouldn't have to switch tires

    Can you post a full list of specs on that build please? Curious how much more investment it would take to get to sub 21lb...

    Sorry I am lazy, this is the XO1 build kit on the Ibis website with the Ibis carbon wheels. The weight listed is with heavy XT pedals.
    The Raceface carbon cranks can shave a bit off.

    I get the lazy thing, my wife believes I invented it actually, but you must share more photos and ride reports of your bike. It's not like there's a plethora of photos and info out there about the Tranny.... yet.

    Thanks!

    Hey homey,
    I was worried that I put too many pictures and that I would get flamed for it. Do you really need more?
    Today was my fourth ride and it is feeling awesome, it is an amazing climber and the geometry feels really good on the uphill and downhill singletrack(fireroad too.) I have the 120mm Fox Fork with a 90mm stem and the wide Ibis carbon bars.
    Check out the pictures and look at the internal cable routing and the placement of the rear disc brake caliper. I put a dropper post on today and I'm really looking forward to riding it with it.
    I am super stoked on the lightweight Carbon Ibis wheelset, the low pressure is working out wonderful.

    Thanks miles, seat post looks good. I just picked up the Ripley last month and I have the same build as you have on your tranny including those amazing wheels (but minus the fox. I went with the pike). I was thinking that a tranny may be needed to fill the small gap that the Ripley has trouble filling.

    Thanks for the review as well.

    There can never be too much pics of a Tranny! Please go on posting them!

    I own the old Tranny 26 and I am thinking wether to upgrade or not.
    It is such a hard decision...

    I own a old tranny also and got a order in for the new one. The wait is killing me, I checked your post often to keep me pump.

    Nice build that dropper will be your best friend.

    Yes, I did get the mole and I don't know how to ride without a dropper post anymore.
    Droppers are a game changer.

    I love the use of the FD routing for the Lev dropper.

    Out of curiosity, did you go with a 51mm offset fork? I know that's what Ibis recommends for 120mm travel, but if I end up getting one of these frames I was considering extending my Reba to 120mm. Just wasn't sure if that was going to be a stupid decision or not.

    Yeah that front derailer routing made it superclean.
    I don't think the Fox120mm is 51 mm offset, I think that is with the hundred millimeter.

    The Fox 120 is available with 51mm offset. That is what is supplied stock on the Ripley

    Any problems with creaking from the bolts holding the rear triangle in place? Really interested in buying one these HT bikes but just concerned about creaks from the bolts.
