Whatever it is, it’s not a 29er Tranny…

road drops in the shadow..full suspension carbon cross bike?!

Morgan - 06/07/13 - 8:49am

It’s a kick back to John Tomac doing down hill with drop bars!

Ryan - 06/07/13 - 9:16am

Can I offer a new logo in trade for a bike?

RideBeerSleep - 06/07/13 - 9:19am

I hope Ibis will make a super rad video with Brian Lopes being awesome to promote it.

Additionally, whatever they reveal pray it will be available soon afterwards, unlike the Ripley which we heard about the development for what seemed like 5 years.

Mojo SL 27.5?

Sean - 06/07/13 - 9:20am

650B / 27.5″ Mojo SL. Keepin’ up with the Joneses

urbiksux - 06/07/13 - 9:20am

everyone does a carbon 29er hardtail, but that doesn’t mean IBIS couldn’t do it better. Or even better, an alum 29er HT. I sense more of a mojo 275 though.

satisFACTORYrider - 06/07/13 - 10:01am

anne-caro’s and lopes’ 27.5ers?

Honeybear - 06/07/13 - 10:09am

Teaser this, teaser that, what has the bike industry become–a teenage girl?!

Seth - 06/07/13 - 10:46am

If it’s anything like the Ripley, it won’t be available for purchase for at least 18-24 months.

GbrNole - 06/07/13 - 10:50am

I’m not so sure it’s a full bike at all? I’d hazard a guess it might be a 27.5 rear end that is interchangeable between some of the product lines?

Trey R - 06/07/13 - 11:06am

O. M. G. !!! They’re bringing back the Bow Ti in carbon!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEK!!!!!! *shut up Honeybear*

mike - 06/07/13 - 11:11am

my money is on a 650b mojo

Padrote - 06/07/13 - 11:17am

whatever it is, it’s got a three year old shock on it

Topmounter - 06/07/13 - 11:28am

Since I don’t already own an IBIS…

WORK MORE AFFORD IBIS

Steve @ G4G - 06/07/13 - 12:05pm

Mojo with a useful bottle cage mount?

Bayard - 06/07/13 - 12:42pm

Those colors are crazy. Not tooany bikes rolle yellow and orange and white.

RickyBob - 06/07/13 - 12:53pm

Yeah lets sacrifice frame/suspension design so we can fit a water bottle in there.

Josh - 06/07/13 - 1:38pm

A 650b Mojo HD.

mateo - 06/07/13 - 1:47pm

You guys are reading too much (or not enough) into the first image. They said those are images of “past, present, and future” bikes.

Eric@505 - 06/07/13 - 3:41pm

My bet’s that the new bike will be a Mojo SL-R HD Fatbike with fender mounts, full-carbon Campagnolo seat post, a PF 100 BB, Bluetooth, and one cup espresso maker…

…that will only be marketed to dentists…

Sorry, H8ters. ; )

Guy - 06/07/13 - 5:09pm

Ibis Szazbo Carbon SL 27.5. No DW Link, just an awesome new single pivot design that counters all pedaling force by creating pogo force. Less active while descending and fully active while climbing in the saddle.

alex - 06/07/13 - 6:46pm

Hopefully this “teaser” doesn’t have to keep my attention for as long as they needed to keep it for me to buy a Ripley……years pass……yawn…….wait, Im too old now to even ride a bike…..

MasCam - 06/07/13 - 9:30pm

Whatever it is I am betting on the phrases “650B/27.5″ and “Enduro” being in the description.

All mountain is dead…. Long live enduro!!!!!!

greg - 06/07/13 - 9:47pm

they havent made a race bike. i hope they make an xc race bike. 27.5 or 29.

derekbzhang - 06/07/13 - 10:03pm

Ibis Mojo HD 27.5 or similar 150mm+ travel 27.5 trail bike.

the_contrarian - 06/08/13 - 4:18am

I don’t think they are drop bars at all, they are suspension forks…it is the shadow playing tricks on us! What appears to be the lower – or drop – part of the handlebar is in fact the brace on the fork lowers, while the upper curve is the fork crown which is most likely something from RS due to the more pronounced ‘arch’ shape they have between the stanchions. The handle bars can’t be seen except maybe in the blotch of shadow on the rock at very top left of the image. If I am correct with that assumption, then what appears to be the top tube will in fact be the shock and if that too is a correct assumption, it all fits with the ‘Mojo’ shape. Therefore a middle wheeled Mojo it must be! especially as it seems you aren’t the real deal in 2014 without 27.5″ wheels….
PS; As far the wait goes, I doubt it will be anywhere near as long as the Ripley because it will be a lot easier for the Ibis crew to tweak/modify a current platform than design a whole new one as they had to do with the wagon wheels.

Tsetse - 06/09/13 - 12:04am

A full suspension 650B enduro bike?

X Dresser - 06/09/13 - 5:45pm

Hoping for a Tranny 29′er but won’t be holding my breath
