    I'm with you, and personaly never asked for a modified Mojo HD.
    Special headsets are there to fulfill this need.

    What I asked for a few weeks ago, was a DH frame for ACC !

    The only thing I would ask for is a seat tube that doesn't taper so you have more range of travel on the seatpost. Forget the front der. on the HD

    1. 650b HD 160-180mm (preferably with slack HA)
    2. 650b SL-R 140-150mm ((preferably with slack HA)
    3. A "Gran Fondo" carbon road bike with a compliant ride, disc mounts, and (you guessed it) relaxed head angles would be awesome. (basically the bicycle equivalent of a sport-touring motorcycle)

    Magazine reviewers and hardcore racers seem to be big on "twitchy" handling. I prefer my bikes to have more relaxed handling so you can confidently hit the big speeds and still trust the bike to stay predictable.

    I know a lot of folks have been asking for internal routing, but I strongly prefer external for ease of maintenance. Just isn't worth the hassle.

    1. A SL-R with slacker head angle and slightly longer toptube (like Pivot Mach 5.7c which I had swapped to because of the reasons above), internal cable routing and water bottle cage mount as a bonus, if possible.
    2. - 5. N/A

    Excerpt with Scot in new Switchback Magazine:

    "I can tell you we are going to have several new bikes in the next year
    ...
    "What I can say is that I have never been more excited about the coming nine months in the history of Ibis than I am right now with all the stuff we have in the pipeline."
    There's a feeling I get
    When I look to the West
    And my spirit is crying for leaving

    I'm excited to see what Ibis comes up with! Hopefully dedicated long travel 26" and 650b bikes so that every one is happy!

    Very excited, but not sure what 9 months means in IBIS time. Hope I'm wrong.

    As many have said before me:

    1) HD revision, slacker (66 deg), internal cable routing, ICSG tabs, Better shock options (Cane Creek, X Fusion, etc. on builds.

    2) 650B HD 150-160, updated geo, same as previous.

    3) Ibis DH bike

    4) Long Travel 29er, 140mm

    5) Aggressive hardtail, 140-150mm fork, 650B

    Actually you need only two models:

    - HD with interchangeable travel (maybe 160mm to 190mm) and HA for enduro and bike park riding,

    - Ripley, or some else 29er with interchangeable travel of 120 to 140.

    Why compromise with 27,5" when you can have best of both ends?

    yeah, why not make them out of lead while you are at it !
    I would venture they are more successful now because they are all carbon bikes (and dam good ones).

    Hmmm. Now I have to hold off on my HD purchase so I can see what's in the pipeline. Sea Otter release I hope.

    Carbon fat bike, Handjob cable stops. Name it CHUBBY. I'll take it in a nice inky blue finish... "blue balls". I'm seeing mine rigged with lights for midnight snow rides. Please!!

    So I guess I'll chime in here...

    I'd love to see an Ibis "Adventure" road bike, sort of like the 'Gran Fondo" mentioned above but with clearance for a true 32mm tire... and I'd love to see it WITHOUT discs... I just don't see the need for discs on road bikes... good calipers stop just fine unless you're on a fully loaded touring bike or tandem...

    Also, I think Ibis would kill it with a couple "retro" steel bikes... and for the poster that said "might as well make them out of lead"... you really have no clue how light a well-made steel bike can be... I guarantee I can build a steel cross bike that weighs no more than my carbon Lugi...
    Like is too short to grow up, go ride a bicycle!

    You should invent the donwhiller's road bike. Disc brakes and FUN geometry (not for the cadence meter crowd).
