    In sticking with the literal words of the thread of something new and completely different... I assume their entering the 650b market since parts are finally mature enough. However, will they continue with the tallboy, highball naming and do something like a 'growler'. The advantage of 650b is to design for increased travel vs. 29er. So I am expecting 6" travel 650b that may or may not be more related to the nomad than the tallboy design.

    V8 29er for Syndicate Enduro

    I’ll play... The photo reveals:
    DH apparel - ff helmet, goggles, jersey, shorts, leg protection, flats
    Very wide, flat bars
    Low seat, possibly tilted nose up and close to top of tire
    Big back wheel with derailleur
    Unusually low seat stays

    “Something completely different” - Announcing an AM/DH V10-like frame holding 29er wheels. 8” travel on a bike that’ll be called the V8. This will be the Syndicate’s Enduro race bike - they’ve announced the Team is doing Enduro WS events plus the logo. Question is if V8 will be team issue only for a year, or available for sale from the start.

    Anomalies...
    Object near left hand too big for brakes only - what else could be there if 1x10 gravity setup? Maybe image is flipped or Di2? Just 1 cable visible.

    Midway between top of tire and rear axle, there’s a black triangular piece... I think this is a wide link in place of the seat tube also like V10.

    I was outbid by 13 bucks on that. I was sad but relieved at the same time. My wife currently rides a white Juliana with a lot of pink bits on it. She would've been so stoked if we won. I've been teasing her the new bike is a womens 650b called a cosmopolitan. Keeping with the alchohol theme you know

    Would be pretty funny if they really just introduce a couple of hip hopper hats, after all this wild e-speculation.

    Possible though.

    I'd bet at a Enduro event pedally, squishy rig though. With that trend taking off and everything...

    this is just not possible unless you have a wheelbase like a dirtbike, including the massive swingarm.

    otherwise, everyone would have already done it. you will not see a 8" travel 29er ever.

    No sense of adventure

    Maybe a stretch to 160mm up front...150mm in the back

    Just watched this vid from MTBR - 650b 27.5 All Mountain Bike Round Up - Part 2 - YouTube

    650b round up and I reckon theres a distinct hint that santa cruz are making a 650b bike around 1:55...

    I'm guessing a 150mm 650b BLTc

    That sounds not so vague to me. :-)

    I might be interested in that, but maybe not.

    650b seems pretty mellow to me. Maybe advantages from both wheels sizes, maybe the negatives from both. Don't know...

    The cat's out of the bag. Because that picture has not been posted in this thread or any other yet, I'll fill you in. That's my good friend Katrina Strand. Since the middle of summer she's been riding a prototype Blur LT with 150mm travel and 275 wheels, painted to look like a current TRc. She absolutely loves and rips on it and won't go back to 26". She actually won the Crankworx Enduro on that bike. I'm just saying this because its going to be announced soon enough anyway...so start saving.

    You've got that right, that's a bike I'd want! Tallboy is too xc and the TBLT is too much bike (IMHO). My 650BTRc is great, but there are compromises with any conversion. Put about 125mm in back and a 130-140 F34 up front, 67-68 deg steerer. Damn, not I want one.

    Was at the factory today and got some insider info on this. Santa Cruz is introducing a carbon fiber downhill full suspension KMX trike with a 29" rear and 18" front wheels. Word is Peaty has already agreed to ride one in the next Downhill World Championships.

    This seems like the most probably scenario.

    Being a recent purchaser of a Nickel, converted to 140mm travel, it would be really, really awesome if Santa Cruz eventually made a 150mm APP 275 bike, assuming that everything is going in the 275 direction.

    I've owned a lot of different Santa Cruz bikes over the last decade, and the Nickel is my favorite, so far.

    Having owned Santa Cruz single pivots, VPPs and now an APP, I like APP the best. The bike has short chainstays, a reliable single pivot combined with a linkage that provides a stiffened rear end and better suspension design.

    Santa Cruz needs a mini DH/free ride bike, something to go between the Nomad and the V10. 170-180 mm of travel, 65-66 degree HTA, 180 mm fork, coil shock, aluminum and carbon option.

    I think the man himself has spoken. End of discussion. It's a Blur LT 650B.
    Too bad, I was really hoping for a Nomad LT/VP Free carbon.

    Yes, minus the 14+" BB, short top tube, tall head tube, and QR dropouts - and with more travel, slacker head angle, reverb stealth routing, and made out of carbon. But otherwise yes....

    I'm hoping for a proper Blur LT update with the above features - a TRC LT 650b FTW LOL if you will, JK.

    The APP isn't/wasn't any more reliable than a VPP. True, it's technically a single pivot, but without the simplicity of a true single-pivot bike.

    650B blur argument here has gotten pretty compelling. Well, I know my fiance will probably be one of the first people in line for it.
    If they did a 650B hardtail, I could see going in that direction. I'm completely happy with my LTc for all my squishy riding needs.

    In my opinion, wagon wheels should stay away from longer travel bikes. I hope that next Nomad is either 26" or 27.5".

    TBLT has only 135mm of rear travel.
