    I agree. 12 pages of ideas/input it's time for some info back from Ibis. I've got a few possible 650B bikes in mind to purchase (hopefully before spring) and I'd love to see what's in the pipeline here.

    YEAH, c'mon Ibis! This thread is now three months old and we expect you to have carbon molds done, ride samples in the works, and geo's published so we can all complain/speculate the crap out of them!

    Well if their past announcement shed any insight on 2013's models and beyond, they probably won't say peep until the bikes are in the HQ ready to go out to dealers a-la-yeti style. Look how long we speculated over the delivery dates of the SLR and now the RIPLEY.

    Sure, it sucks they ain't saying nothing, but if they've learned anything from their announce-five-centuries-before it's ready approach, then the new bikes will punch us all in the face when they are announced and ready to go that's one delay I don't mind.

    But seriously Ibis, gimme sumthin'

    A cross post from the PIVOT forum (maybe some clues here...):

    Looks like Dave just posted another tweet February 1. No guarantees they're Pivot products as I imagine he's got Turner and Ibis steeds in the mix.

    "So much carbon, so much 29er, so much 65027.5(.25), so much DH, so much XC, so much XC!, some AM, SO MUCH TESTING TO DO!"

    Word is that Turner has a carbon 29er in the pipeline. I imagine Pivot and Ibis are both pushing 650B projects. Wonder where the DH is coming from and I know the AM following is huge. Sounds like he's involved in a few things.

    we are not asking for the finish product, all we are asking is for some clues if there is indeed a lot in store in the pipeline.

    I'd like to at least know if there will be a dedicated 650B rear triangle made for the existing HD. More clearance than just a few mm's with the ability to also run the biggest/tallest 650B tires. Wouldn't kill them to chime in about that possibility even if a whole new bike is in the works.

    1 - A full DH rig
    2 - A Ripley HD (150mmish rear travel and with threaded external bb not internal) Something to smash the SC Tallboy LTc and Spesh Enduro 29er
    3 - A HD 160mm 650b
    4 - Update the HD to have internal cable routing
    5 - Some new Ibis clothing, hats, trail riding shirts etc. The current stuff is very roady/xc looking.

    1. 27.5 HD with a lighter frame, revised geometry, and eccentric links
    2. Tranny 29

    Would put down preorders for both bikes immediately.

    I don't know. Hillharmon might be on to something. I was about to get a turner burner but was advised to wait by a source at ibis.

    But why the mojo hd special blends. Is there a new frame coming?

    Someone from Ibis eh? Was that it on the info?

    I was gonna order the new Banshee Spitfire V2 frame but now the new SC Bronson has me rethinking that a bit. If Ibis is gonna release a new or revised Mojo/HD or even a dedicated rear 650B triangle that could also really mess with my head and complicate an already tough decision.

    I have an email transaction I promised not to post. But it said to wait and see what Ibis will unveil in the months to come. No specifics. If it helps, it was the man himself who replied to my email.

    Black on black Ripley. You know, naked carbon. Then I will buy it. That's the carbon bike I want.

    If front derailleurs are a thing of the past, and there is seat tube to tire clearance, then the chainstay length on the Ripley might be shorter than it is.

    Frames designed around no front derailleur.
    Note to self: 85% of FTP for 20 min.

    Yes, I agree. Design around no fd. Haven't had one in three yrs. Like the simplicity, similar to the simple Ripley design. Oh, a 140 rear Ripley would ok too.

    Don't have months to wait (Ibis months can = years). I needed something ASAP to ride so I ordered the Banshee Spitfire frame today and should have it in a week and will be running it 650B. The new Bronson looks really good but I believe the Banshee VPP design is better. Also the price was right for the Banshee frame @ $1800 with Fox CTD Kashima shock.

    It would be very cool to see Ibis pull a new HD out of their hat with the eccentric pivots but it's gonna cost. At the very least they should build a dedicated 650 triangle for the existing HD while at the same time working on a new model.

    I wonder if we'll ever see a long travel bike with the eccentrics. At some point in the travel spectrum the eccentrics would have to be upsized, perhaps to the point of diminishing returns. Those giant cartridge bearings aren't light.....not that my arm chair engineering counts for much.
    I'm still pulling for a light 140mm RiBley to cover the XC to aggressive trail w accessible water bottle end of things, and a Mojo HB for big trails w big wheels.

    I only have one...
    Dedicated 650B HD 140/160
    Or at least a 650B compatible rear triangle.

    My vote goes for a 650b rear triangle for the HD. and possibly jerseys that are more relaxed and with smaller/more discreet logos. I think one of those button-up collared shirts with an Ibis logo embroidered on the left chest would be pretty cool...
