    What would you want/predict for the next mountain bike Ibis designs?

    Downhill bike? Hardtail 29er? Non-Mojo type frame all mountain bike? 650B optimized?

    Do you think Ibis will come out with something that will completely revolutionize biking like they did with the first Mojo? What do you think a 2020 Ibis will look like?

    Modular rear dropouts for the same frame and swingarm, to be compatible with 26" or 27.5" (650b) for all the Mojos, and 27.5 (650b) and 29 for the eventual Ripley and bigger wheel revised Tranny. To be able to better fit small and large riders. And the smaller wheels for buff hardpack or larger wheels for rocky rooty riders.

    Options that Derby mentioned would be sweet!

    ... and how about a 650b SL-R with 68 degree head angle?
    ... with one more colorful color choice?

    Elegible head angle without the need of an Angleset. Just factory cups.
    Elegible dropouts for 26"/650b or 650b/29"
    Internal cable routing
    Wider bars on HD stock buildkits
    New logo

    I like Derby's idea.

    I have no reason to buy a new bike but some options for an allready great frame would be sweet, I would love a 150mm travel, 13.4mm BB, 66 degree option

    Hi. I am in fact a possible buyer hd 160, but would like updated to 2013/14, perhaps with wheels 650 b, internal cables, ISCG and who knows saddle tube with internal cables. Imagined and drew a possible new hd 160, with the smallest and more rigid rear triangle, keeping the DW Link.
    However I will still wait for news of next year. Still going to appear?
    Thank you and I hope you enjoy my preview.

    Great drawing - you've got some real talent.
