    No, I got it...think 90's, Cannondale...motorcycle! It's gotta be! Maybe a fancy electric powered dirt bike. 27.5, of course.

    I'm still banking on a downhill KMX trike.

    My sources tell me it's going to be a full suspension freight trike / bakfiets, for all the ageing MTBers with (grand)kids to take to the trails

    As somebody already posted, the ad (at least IMO) gives you the understanding that whatever is due 1st of April has something to do with enduro racing. You have the world series logo there, the setting, trail, the rider in fullface and so on - all hints point in this direction.

    Well, assuming the bike will indeed be in the enduro class you have two options (or three now with the Specialized Enduro 29er):

    1. A new Nomad 26er in which case the 'something completely different' could refer to a new, more pedalable suspension platform and frame geometry benefitting enduro specific racing

    2. The most obvious option, that is, a 160mm/6" 27.5er based on the Nomad geo (however, new name for the bike I'd say). I see no reason on earth why a possible 27.5er frame would be 5,5" or based on BlurLT as somebody has suggested (if it's for enduro). Anyways, whatever the travel, the 'completely different' would obviously refer to the wheelsize in this case.

    (3. Even longer travel version of the Tallboy than the LT. Don't believe in this at all, but the Spec Enduro 29er introduction somehow haunts in the background...) Still, the Tallboy LT already utilizes the longest travel 29er forks there is so, seriously, how much room is there for an even longer travel Tallboy 29er? I'm also lacking the meaningfulness of the 'something completely different' statement with this option...)

    Well, let's see, only 3+ weeks to go...

    This makes no sense. A more pedal friendly Nomad for Enduro racing? If anything, it needs to be plusher.

    I will gladly take wagers from anyone on this . . . .

    I actually think the shorter TT is what helps make the bike more fun to ride (for me anyway). Though it does make choosing the best size more difficult.

    +1. Having ridden a bike now with a longer TT, shorter stem/wider bars, AND an appropriate ST length I don't think I could go back. I don't like going up a frame size to get the fit I want.

    Doing some more poking around I wouldn't be suprised if there are two 650B bikes in the works. One built around a 140/160 F34 fork and another built around the 140 F32 fork. So my bet would be both 5 and 6 inch 650B bikes.

    You're taking 650B Blur TRc like bike, right? I would not wager against this.

    Yup! My first prediction was made back on Christmas eve . . . . and I'm still sticking with it. 5.5" VPP frame built around a 140-160mm fork with 650b wheels. Eventual replacement for the now classic BlurLT.

    Though I must admit, it never really CROSSED my mind until a couple days ago when I realized that there is an entire genre gap in SC's lineup that's pretty popular these days . . . . perhaps "something completely different" really is COMPLETELY different?

    my moneys with you Mr. Craig sir...
    Something to compete with a Rocky Mtn Altitude?
    Maybe with a remote CTD bar mounted lock out shock/fork?
    My Blur Xc is dying to be traded for a Trc, but i really want to hang onto see what comes thru for April fools....can't bear to loose the Gonad '13 i just bought, so that may just have to be relegated to heavy duties.
    For Sale- Blur XCc'11+fox 120
    Litespeed Ardennes '09,
    Xc/Trail - Solo C Black
    AMl- Nomad C Green '13+36's

    I also would not bet against you on this. The frame geometry is too easy to tweak on the existing TRc for them not to throw a different fork and wheels on it. It's a good wheel size that will make a good number of riders satisfied.
