    Something new from Ibis next week?

    Just saw this tweet:

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>RT <a href="https://twitter.com/fatcyclist">@fatcyclist</a>: I’m having an amazing conversation with <a href="https://twitter.com/chuck_i">@chuck_i</a> right now. Next week you’ll learn what it’s about. I promise though: Wow.</p>&mdash; Ibis Cycles (@IbisCycles) <a href="https://twitter.com/IbisCycles/statuses/405347483355987968">November 26, 2013</a></blockquote>

    Thoughts?

    My money would be on it being either a LT Ripley, or a Tranny 29er. More likely the latter, I think.

    Mind you, Ibis wouldn't be the first niche manufacturer to go fat:

    I'm sure I read an interview with Scot Nicol where he said there would be multiple product launches this year. 31 Dec getting close...

    Given they've not long launched the Mojo HDR, I'd be a bit dubious about that.

    My guess/hope: releasing a new bike AND shipping immediately AND raffling one off to benefit FatCyclists' "give cancer the beeyotch slap!" thang.

    And yes, I agree that it'll be a tranny 29 or some short travel 27.5 eccentric pivot hotness.

    (Edit: My thinking on the short travel 27.5 is this: they released the HDR recently b/c it was a relatively easy change to make, and gives the HD a couple more years' legs in the marketplace. The SL-R is a wee bit dated, and my guess not selling nearly as well as the HDR or Ripley. Hopefully the extensive R&D they did on the Ripley gave them a good handle on that technology, and simplify its application to another model. The SL/SL-R platform allows for good 27.5 experimentation, accelerating the mule/kinematics/geo testing. The 5010 seems to be selling pretty damn well, and showing there's a hunger for this sort of bike in the marketplace. Finally, trailbikes have been Ibis' core business since they relaunched, and a new weapon in their arsenal would just refresh that aspect of the brand. Plus I bloody well want one.)

    I am with budgie. A 150-160mm eccentric pivot 650b trail bike with uber short CSs would be awesome.

    Maybe a Mojo HDR LT HD - 27.5" wheels + 155mm travel + clearance for a big 2.4" tire?

    Um...I sure hope it's not a 650 Ibis as I have a 29er Ibis on order from Competitive Cyclist. Talk about bad timing - not that a 29er isn't cool and all; but a LT Ripley sporting 650B and short CS may make the perfect AM bike, vs. the more XC/AM oriented current Ripley.

    Thick question - what would the difference between this and a Mojo HDR be?

    Edit - have just clocked the HDR is 130mm in 650B mode

    A more XC/Race inspired 27.5 with the Ripley-style links and frame so it can fit a water bottle. Super light as well. It could be the Rip-Rippity SL-R 275.

    100 or 120mm would be fine.
    Fall in Fruita/GJ. F' yeah! Lunch Loops are riding sweet and so is everything else.

    Lingua d'origine

    Lingua desiderata
    Se si guarda quello che presentano le altre aziende, soprattutto quelle di nicchia come Ibis, ovvero, 650b, come è possibile che le mojo e non solo la HD non vengano sostituite/aggiornate? E, ripeto, con tutto quello che hanno speso in termini di tempo e progettazione con la Ripley, credo che la direzione sarà quella..ripley/mojo 650b long travel
    Traduzione umana


    If you watch what have other companies, especially those of niche as an Ibis, namely, 650b, how is it that mojo is not only the HD are not replaced/updated? And, I repeat, with all that they have spent in terms of time and design with the Ripley, I believe that the direction will be the one..ripley/mojo 650b long travel, I think, I hope!!

    Nothing of the sorts IMO... My prediction, based on a previous thread, is a new casual-fit Ibis riding jersey.

    Just my AUD0.02.

    Is it? Damn.... I was going to purchase one, but I was told they were small fitting... I normally ride in a 2xl Endura Hummvee jersey. I asked Ibis what the armpit to armpit measurement was of one of their jerseys, but they wouldn't tell me Being in New Zealand, I didn't want to risk buying it to find it didn't fit

    Actually, new Tranny with 29er or fat rear triangles might be an interesting idea.

    I'm praying for a 140-145 Ripley HD with longer top tubes and relatively short chainstays

    Or a DH bike....

    I'm so sick of fat bikes....

    Really can't see it being a DH bike, unless Ibis are planning a DH race programme. This would seem unlikely as I don't think they've got the resources to compete with the big boys, and brands like Orange have discontinued their DH bikes as they just aren't selling without a race programme to advertise the bikes.

    HD Ripley more likely.

    Would love a 155 travel 650 bike with relatively short CS, but I can't see them making that change so soon. I would be the first at the shop with my deposit though!

    XL's pop up on ebay from time to time for like ten dollars.

    I believe I own a large. I could fit another person in my jersey, seriously. It's massive. Like a parachute on windy rides.

    Very exciting. I can't wait for the HDR LT - 650B wheels - 150mm DW Link goodness and clearance for big tires. FTW!

    160 would be even sweeter! The more I think about it, the more a 160 275 bike makes sense. From what I have seen the HD outsells every other bike them make by a wide margin. Although the HDR has been selling I have a feeling that a lot of people (like me) were disappointed in the 275 130 travel mode and the Mach 6 is going to take a big chunk of sales away.

    +1 - If it was a 160mm 27.5 bike with clearance for a 2.4" Conti Trail King in the rear and BB that's at least 13.6" high I'll walk into my LBS and throw down a deposit the next day.

    I think you are bang on about the Mach 6 and the other longer travel 650B bikes that are out or about to be out.

    That implies that the HDR 160 won't be on the demo menu next year... Is 650b gaining hold so quickly that the once all-conquering Mojo HD platform is not even going on the demo tour any more? If the 26" market is shrinking that quickly, then Ibis should definitely move fast on getting a longer travel 27.5 AM bike in production...although personally I'd be perfectly satisfied with a HDR 130.

    I was talking to someone from ibis a few weeks ago about Derby rims and said "I wished there was a 26" version", to which his reply was that 26" is basically dead. Nobody in the industry is doing much in the way of developing for 26" wheeled bikes. 27.5 is all the hype consumers want, so that's what they'll get.

    I agree with you on the 26 vs 275 thing. Not seeing much of a difference.
