    MmmmmmH Noice

    Hi Greg,
    Is that a small or a medium frame. I'm can't decide on whethter to buy a small or a medium. Here in Australia there is very little chance of a test ride. I have a medium mojo and it is great especially for DH. As I will be making a lightweight SS out of the Tranny I might be able to use a small. Most of the other bikes I own are small. A giant cadex cfm1, a giant VT-2, a KHS SE on 29er SS. The KHS is the only one that has the seat post at max height. I want to sell the VT and the KHS and my old fox float 140 RL forks to be able to afford the Tranny.

    Are you really TangoGreg? Nice bike, there was one at the race I was at today. It was setup as a SS, I think they look nicer in person. I want one too.

    Where is the ride report? What kind of hard tail were you on before? What is the ride quality like, stiff, smooth, just right?

    And most importantly, what's up with those pedals?

    I've had this one since Friday.

    Wasn't so sure I wanted to post it up for critique (been there and done the forums thing many times and it's too easy to get sucked into personal battles that would never happen face to face over off the cuff comments)

    Anyway here is the photo, the weather here in Germany is atrocious at the moment, so I've got about 25miles on the frame going to and from work in monsoon conditions (all the parts were swapped over from my on-one Inbred).

    I am currently having some teething troubles keeping the chain tensioned but I imagine that's just a learning curve thing. It is quite a scary noise when the joint slips over a bump!

    Just got to trim the steerer and the brake lines to suit (I need to resolve an issue with the fork first though)

    Have fun and I wish it was a nice sunny outdoors photo as it looked stunning in the sun when I was taking it home on Friday (strapped to a backpack in two halves and cycled 16miles back from work )

    Just nipped out and weighed the bike, it comes in at around 8.85Kg.

    With most of the same parts on an on-one inbred 20" frame it weighed 10.15Kg (with an Alfine shifter still on the bars)

    Getting on a bit better with the sliding joint after increasing the torque a little. I still want to strip it off again and apply some more carbon fitting paste though. (it needs to come off anyway to loose the hope disc that is currently trying to eat my brake caliper!)

    I got shot of a tranny in action today.
    I was riding with a huge group and thought this guy was with us, so I took a shot of him.
    It turned out to be Scot of Ibis. We had a nice little chat on the road ride out.

    I'm having that same dilemna. Copper Metallic or Granny Smith Apple Metallic. Already have the matte clear on my Mojo SL, so looking for something different.

    May end up just flipping a coin for it.

    nice bike! I love the orange. My matte naked carbon frame is on the way. What kind of cranks are those? I'm still working out the SS build. I need to decide on cranks and wheels.

    Frameskin for Tranny.

    Well a bright green Tranny arrived at my office today. So, this weekend i'll get busy and craft a fancy Frameskin kit for the Tranny drivers out there. Hey... nice frame, and very light.

    I take it that Bigdog sent you his frame?

    Won't the "bloody silly big size" that he rides effect the frameskin sizing?

    Yes, his rather big metallic apple thing gets the treatment this weekend.
    Will Frameskin kits be affected by the larger frame? No. Through incredibly clever design by the Ibis boffins down at the lab, the rear triangle features the same geo across the frame sizes... and then through the use of mirrors, string and a rabbit, I make downtube and top tube skins that will work for all. Man, the lines across the bottom bracket and over to the slot machine are smooth as. There's nice detailing on this frame - dribble factor 9.2. I'll try to snap some pics as I work through the design.

    Shaping Frameskin for a Tranny

    Here's some of the in-progress shots taken during pattern making this weekend.
    As a bare frame it's hard to know where the cable lines run, so I tape some on to help things along. A bare frame also makes it super easy to design protection for chain-suck munching into the carbon behind the cranks. If you get a kit, remove the crank for the best results. This kit fits like a glove, very happy with the result.

    Tranny with Frameskin kit

    And here's some pics of the complete kit installed. Nice frame. I hope to get a chance to throw a leg over an Ibis Tranny and go for a ride when more come down round my side of the globe.

    I kitted a Yeti ASR-C this weekend as well. The carbon used on that frame isn't quite a weave pattern, more a squiggly type of construction to it. Quite a matt finish too, and looks rather cool with the Frameskin contrasting sections. It's shaped like a stealth fighter and freaky light like the Tranny is and has really unusual rear stays. As Captain Hammer says 'Not my usual, but nice.'

    Fishboy, your attention to detail is impressive and melds well with the Ibis brand.

    My new Tranny!

    Frame: Ibis Tranny (Large)
    Fork: Fox 100 RLC 2010
    Wheels: 355's with American Classic hubs
    Tyres: Maxxis Ardent 2.25 front and Maxxis Aspen 2.25 rear
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy SL

    Other wise stock Ibis XT kit!

    Weight: 22.6lbs (will check on a better scale later)

    Sorry for the rubbish photo, will get some better ones soon.

    Its hard to do any comparison as I have not ridden any other new design hard tails, compared to the litespeed she is a faster accelerator (also 2lbs less) and way faster down the hills. The bike is more stable and I feel like I have a lot of control at high speed. Its stiffer, yet seems to absorb the small bumps better, this may be the change in material or the design???

    I got a 90mm stem and the cot pit feels a tiny bit cramped, this is a simple geometry change that will take a little getting use to.

    Off to Wales on Thursday, she is not really the bike for Wales that's what I have the Mojo for but it will give me a much better testing ground for the bikes abilities!

    Tranny Love etc, etc..

    I have one real ride on it so far. It's the most effecient bike I've ever ridden. The carbon goodness, stiff, single speedness, every ounce of energy you put in propels you forward. I rode a zone with a ton of climbing, probably not the best SS trail network. It climbs like no tomorrow and is SO fast downhill. The FU bars and Ergon grips really complement the Tranny SS well.

    When I parked it that night next to the mojo, the mojo had this look of jealousy. I couldn't bare to look at her. ha.

    hmm tranny colors

    this might seem trivial but just can't get my head around the tranny colors.
    given my mojo is naked carbon was looking to go a new color, like the green but just can't get it to look good with a white fox f100 fork. if i go the white fork then the seat post and rims etc will be black and it's just too many colors and looks messy. also red components just don't work with green either.
    Also the orange color is too brown and the white fork dose not work either.
    any solutions? pictures?

    Not yet, I wanted the wheels to be as versatile as the Tranny. I'm starting to re-think that, as I believe my bearings are shot in my brand new BWW hub. I'm not sure if it's the placement of the cog on the hub or just a bad hub.

    What advantages do you get with the dishless hub? More efficient I guess??

    Dishless

    The main advantage of a dishless wheel is that it is stronger. The spokes on the drive and non-drive side can be at the same tension.
