    Idea! Ibis Mojo 29er

    This would be an incredible bike, IMO. I would be all over a full suspension Ibis 29er. I have seen a post with info from Hans about a new Ibis project and another from DW stating 3-years in the process...hmm...(some are thinking Tranny 29er...maybe?).

    Any other info or updates, post here.

    Wild guess but DW might not be involved in the Tranny version.

    i think there was a thread along these lines previously where one of the Ibis guys came out and said they had something in the works... search is your friend.

    I can't see Ibis doing a suspended 29er. No real point. If you look at the race results, 26 is the way to go. A 29er Tranny? Here's hoping. Scott Nichol has been riding a 69er version of the Tranny, so maybe.

    What race results? Like the National championships? Men's cross country and short track both won on a full suspension 29er.

    You can 69 a tranny?



    Seriously I've wondered if you could. I really like the Tranny, road it at Interbike last year but I love riding a 69er. Liked my Carver just wish it was longer. If you can 69 the tranny I know what my next frame is and last hardtail ever.

    I did search before starting this thread. I saw the thread regarding the Tranny in the 29er forum and a Mojo 29er in the Ibis Forum (as well as other threads). Thought an Ibis Mojo 29er thread was appropriate for the 29er forum...
    What other searches would you recommend?

    Are you happy now

    We've been riding them for a while and agree, they do some things really well. We are not down on, against, or resistant to them.

    We will make one. When it comes out it will be really good. It's going to be quite a while.

    We can't reveal what it will be, but it's not like any of our other bikes.

    The Tranny would be perfect for 29r..... We'll see...

    Cheers!

    It was edited regarding the Tranny...Reason for edit: Getting convinced on the Tranny 29er...

    They are doing both. A full suspension 29'er and a 29'er Tranny.

    edit: prolly about a year or so out though is what I heard.

    What would make an Ibis FS 29'r better than anything else already available?

    Mono Carbon DW-Link with lines that are second to none...FWIW, IMO, YMMV, AFAIK, IIRC, AFAIC...FTW!

    Edit: I never posted or claimed "better"...others may have...if you play favorites, the other bikes in the stable get jealous...

    I'd rather have the DW Sultan, no carbon to crush when I miss a skinny over a rock garden.

    the ruh-tarded high standover dummy...hopefully it would be even worse on the 29er version on the other hand, maybe stoopid carbon is more forgiving on the huevos so it may be a non issue

    Perhaps the fact that it is rated as one of the top 26er full suspension bikes made? http://www.mtbr.com/cat/bikes/allmtn...7_1547crx.aspx

    I would think it would translate well to a 29er.

    A few have modified the 26 inch version to 650B with positive results.

    If I had the dough re me, and they made a 29er, I would consider it.
    My brain went from "you probably shouldn't say that" to WTF!

    One rider does not make a for a preponderance of evidence. TW would have most likely won those races if he were on a 26, 650B or 29. Out of all the Trek riders on factory machines (Radioshack) it was the 26 that smashed the course record on the Leadville. The losing riders on the team were all riding 29ers. Trek and Spec are throwing a heap of money at the 29er movement but like most things in MTB ing it's spin. Downhillers all agree 29ers don't suit their riding and Lopes is still making younger riders eat his dust riding a 26 Mojo. A 29 Tranny makes sense but a Mojo with weaker and heavier wheels? Nah!

    Not sure how anything could be proven either way, but the same TW reasoning and logic could be applied to LL, IMO. With his strength & conditioning, if LL was comfy riding a 29er, I believe he would have still won...let the flamers begin...

    Edit: And beaten the course record, possibly by more time...

    LL said himself because of size he chose the 26. End of the day fast riders beat slower riders and the rest is marketing kool aid.

    Until it's a production bike for sale it's just more hopeful vaporware.

    Same has been said about 29" tires...TW, CD, JHK, etc...
    Agreed, fast riders beat slower riders...

    Cool-blue Rhythm 2011...the year of Ibis (29er)...?!?

    I know there have been rumors and speculation. I know others have asked and received correspondence. Here is the reply I received.

    I am excited about an Ibis 29er, even if it may not be called a Carbon Mojo. Now we have a better idea that it is a FS with DW-Link (heard rumors of split-pivot). And I like the idea that it is nothing that the world has seen before (although any Ibis 29er would fit that label).

    Quote Originally Posted by askchuck

    We want to have them available in numbers next year. The announcement will happen on our website and the mail list and Facebook hopefully simultaneously. Unless something gets leaked.

    Sultan has 18.2 chainstay and head angle of 69.5. No thanks if you want a quick handling 29er.

    I'd expect that answer from someone who has never ridden one.

    After having just spent 5 days riding one in Fruita and Moab, I'd say that is a somewhat fair statement.

    At speed (think down hill jeep road portion of Porcupine Rim) it tracked like it was on rails but as soon as things slowed down and got technical (think beginning uphill portion of Moore Fun) I couldn't seem to keep the front end from wandering off line to save my life.

    I don't need to ride a bike to know what the bike is intended for. All I have to do is look up the bike on the manufacture's website. Sultan is a trail bike/all mountain bike according to the website. If it's a quick handling XC racer than Turner should advertise it as one. If it's quick handling XC racer then somebody at Turner marketing department should be fired.

    Unless you can defy physics, it's not a quick handling 29er. It's made with longer wheelbase, slack HA, good amount of travel and burly at 30lbs.

    Race your Sultan at XC races and post up your podium results. Next you probably going to tell me that Turner DHR is a great climber. And no I haven't ridden a DHR either.

    Don't tell my friend who took 3rd in the Inter Mountain Cup Series that the Sultan is not a XC bike.
