I am a little confused. After what seems like years of people saying they want stiffer Ibii (OK stiffer Mojo C's and SL's at least), now the bandwagon seems to be loaded with people wanting 650B or larger bikes. Des this mean that everyone is now convinced all Ibis MTBs have the full-wood, or that suddenly stiffness is not as important as it was a year ago?
You can definitely have a stiff 650b/29er wheel.
Drink beer, ride bikes.
Not trolling. Larger diameter wheels cannot be as stiff as smaller without adding bulk or changing materials. It was a serious question.

650,29er, slr, HD and Tranny really give Ibis a complete line of bikes. A DH bike would be the only other segment they haven't covered( although I suspect, secretly , that they are covering it).

An Ibis DH frame would be sick.
def be in on that.
I opened this thread expecting something totally different, like a super hot chick shredding.
