    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?
    Safe riding,

    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.

    the current ibis jersey is so loose that you could fit two or three people in a large.

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

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