    Would be stoked by a HD 650B getting announced but think the Tranny 29 will be next

    Shadow seems to show:
    • Time ATAC MTB pedals
    • Single Chainring
    • Some sort of linkage above the (actual) pedal?
    • Funky boa/drop bars?
    • Beefy fork stanchions/lowers
    • Not much height between top of tire and fork crown

    What is a "boa" bar?

    I think you may see as the hook of a dropbar is the fork crown and stanchion.

    Pivot looks like it could be eccentrics like the Ripley. My guess is 650b, 160mm travel, DW eccentric link, Enduro killing machine. If the Mojo HD and Ripley had a kid. They spent a lot of time on the Ripley's frame and link, maybe it wasn't all spent on the Ripley.

    I have an HD already which I wont be getting rid of anytime soon. I would really like a light weight short travel slack 650b trail bike to pair up with my heavy built Mojo.

    Exactly - An Ibis bike with geo similar to the Solo would be fantastic and a great compliment to the HD

    Looks like a very short travel fork - definitely the Tranny 29er.

    "TK" is an abbreviation for "To come" in the print world.

    I'm thinking 27.5 HD with eccentric links as mentioned above.

    I checked it out: noticed an HD with a black and yellow trim picture.

    Since that's a new color, it would make sense that it is the new bike/ version.

    I'm trying not to get my hopes up, & there's still a good chance Ibis is messing with us (those rascals!). Maybe the bottom right is just a picture of Lopes' custom paint/decal HD? As much as I'd love a 27.5 HD, I think the Tranny 29 is the more likely candidate for Monday.

    No way it is a Tranny 29 based on that photo. Way too much travel on the fork.

    You can tell the difference between 120mm & 160mm based on a shadow? I'm impressed.

    It's clearly a Tranny29er, with a 650b HD rear triangle leaning against it.

    HD-R = 650B HD Bike
    HD-R TK = 650B rear triangle only for current HD bikes.

    That's my guess.

    Or the TK means:

    Urban Dictionary: TKwww.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=TK‎Cached
    SimilarTK. Team Killer n. A person who engages in intentionally or unintentionally killing ... In the Professional Printing Industry, TK on a work order means "to come".

    Have a look at the photo of the orange frame. I struggle with making sense of it. The cut outs seem to be in strange places. To me, it seems that the headtube is either somewhere outside the bottom of the photo, OR outside of the left upper corner - in which case we are looking at the seattube with the Ibis logo. In the latter case, I would be guessing a hardtail with a low toptube with cables on top. Could this be a female-oriented bike to compete with the SC Juliana series? In the former case I have no clue...

    Sorry guys, I most likely had this wrong. Looking more closely, the orange frame is most likely a SL-R seen from behind the seattube. The photo just misses the shock mounts.

    Looks like an orange SL-R, shot from behind the seat-tube.

    I'm virtually sure that the teaser refers to a new version of Mojo HD.

    If finally the new product of Ibis is like this bike showed on the pic uploaded by budgie, IMHO I prefer the "old" design. By the way, I think it is 26" bike (not 650b).

    Ibis says pictures of past and present.
    you have 2 sl pictures, 1 SLR, 1 HD


    New bike is the Lopes paint scheme on another HD most likey 650?? The rear end is not eccentric like a Ripley, its more HD,

    The instagram pic/ comment shows a short stem 55mm and a fox 160mm 650B (I think)

    The shadow picture sure looks like a good sized fork also

    FYI: the image I posted above is an old photo of Lopes' HD that he put up on Instagram a while back, not a leaked photo of the new bike. My point is that the decals resemble those in the teaser shot, and is therefore possibly one of the "past" bikes. Sorry if that was confusing.

    Not sure if everyone here saw it, but I posted the Instagram link below in the "When would Ibis potentially announce something new?" thread a few days ago (motoguru2007's post above made me wonder if he was referencing it):

    the way i saw it first:
    Mojo-C - SLR
    Banner - SL
    HD - New bike

    but with that photo of the lopes paint job...maybe the white one bottom left is new and budgie is correct that they are using trickeration on the bottom right

    Hmm the plot thickens, if you modify the web address for the HD to the following:

    http://www.ibiscycles.com/bikes/mojo_hdr/

    Instead of a page not found it asks for a password.
