    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?

    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.

    Arrived at my LBS today. Sorry about the shoddy cell phone pic, did not have a camera with me at the time. I'll post more as I assemble the components for the build. Decided to build it up as a SS.

    Thanks to Ibis for working with my LBS to become a dealer.

    SS Tranny

    Finished today. Weighs in at 20lbs. 12oz. I could have gone lighter, but I'm happy with the components I picked out. Pics are a little dark, it was later in the afternoon and creating lots of shadow. I'll post more out in the full sun. The paint is amazing in the sunlight. Only thing left to complete the build is Fishboy's Frameskin kit, which is in the mail.

    Thanks. So do I.

    Although, this is my first foray into a SS. We'll see how much I like it after my first ride on her Sunday.

    Not surprised you couldn't make out the weight on the scale. It was a cell phone pic and I was more concerned with getting the whole frame in the shot. I did take a pic of just the reading on the scale though. 3.41 lbs.

    How does it handle with the 130mm fork?

    I've never ridden it with a shorter travel fork, so I can't give you any kind of comparison.

    However, it rides about like I expected it would. I considered a shorter travel fork, but I prefer the extra travel. Helps cover up some of my mistakes.

    34x17... lots of rocks, trees, and roots to power though some climbing but not a whole lot. Moving up to 34x19 after my first ride on it though till I get used to the SS again.

    you guys fuggin' suck!!

    I don't know if I've ever looked at a frame with quite the same level of engineero-lust as this thing engenders.
    even with marathon tires it looks sick!

    Need Tranny owners opinions.....

    Currently ride a SC Nomad MKII great bike but it feels like a lot of effort goes in to be fast.

    Enter the Tranny.

    What are peoples opinions (it all looks positive but of course you would after buying such a frame)? Those that own a full suspension XC bike and the Tranny do you mind the hard tail aspect or if you were doing a race would you choose the full sus XC bike?

    Just trying to get an idea if i could live with H/T again its been around 5years.

    It would be a strict XC bike but also considering a proper more XC orientated full sus bike instead.

    What are peoples thoughts looking for educated opinions!

    This is one of the many Tranny's at the Tranny Parade in New Orleans a week ago. Lotsa Trannies. A veritable Tranny-Fest, as it were. As you can see, the Trannies are popular thereabouts. Hey, I went there looking for bikes. Boy, was I surprised. Twice.

    Tranny SS Build

    Size:.........Large
    Fork:.........RockShox SID
    Wheelset:..Crossmax SLR
    Headset:....CC IS-3
    Handlebar: Easton Monkeylite carbon
    Stem:........Thomson 100mm
    Brakes:......Juicy Ultimates (160 F&R)
    Shifters:.....None!
    Crank:.......Bontrager from my old steel SS (R.I.P.)
    Chain:.......SRAM
    Seatpost:..Thomson
    Saddle:.....WTB Laser V
    Tires:........Eskar 2.3 front, Captain 2.1 rear (both are S-works versions running tubeless)
    Pedals:.....Shimano 540

    Weight:.....20 pounds, 14 ounces

    The frame weight with seat collar was 1520 grams. The ibis quote of 1350 on their website must be for a small nude frame. Frame looks much cooler in person IMHO. Yes, I will be adding a chainstay protector...

    I noticed that too, but I don't think the frame on eBay is this frame. I could be wrong, but I believe Triple T's bike is a medium and the one for sale is a large. You can tell by the length of the seat tube just below the seat clamp. I think the seller on eBay is using a picture of Triple T's bike to show the look of the Tranny as a complete build.

    Here is my new family member. This is before my first ride on her. She is stunning and got lots of attention on the trail. She has great manners and rides very nice on my local single track.

    Wow. That is a bit of a coincidence that is your bike! I actually emailed him to find out about the trailer the bike was on. I'm not at the moment in the market for a tranny (one day, but not yet) but I am looking for a trailer similar to what you have!

    The eBay seller told me it wasn't his tranny and trailer in the picture, just one he saw and used for his ad, so at the least (I suppose) he was up front about it.

    Now the trailer....LOL...is that a Yakima product? That comes stock like that? Do you like it?

    Cheers

    So, you're the one that emailed him about the trailer. Yes, it's a Yakima. Comes trailer only. Bike racks are separate.

    The trailer is not mine. Belongs to the owner of my LBS. I had my Tranny on display along with his singlespeed and a demo bike while we were participating in a race.

    +1 on the attention that this bike garners. I'm not really a "hey, look at me!" kind of guy, but I find that people are generally interested about the bike, especially set up as a SS.
