New Ibis Tranny 29er Hardtail

by Chipps 8

After many years (forever, actually) without a 29in hardtail, Ibis Cycles has just launched its ‘what took you so long?’ carbon 29er hardtail, the Tranny 29.

It has done it in style though, with a win of the Tour Divide this weekend under Jefe Branham.

The bike still features the signature unboltable and adjustable back end that the 26in Tranny had. This allows several things: chain tensioning for easy single speed conversion, or you can pull the back end off completely and fit the frame and wheels into an airline approved size suitcase to avoid bike charges.

Now, some pictures! The full story is over on the Ibis Website.

  1. I like Ibis bikes, but this one looks a bit like it’s been in an accident.

  2. Rear tyre clearance looks as good as the HDR130 that will only fit certain tyres.

  3. The Medium and Large share the same standover, so I guess you could go up a size there for 0.8in extra reach/shorter stem.

  4. Interesting. This I would be interested in.

  5. Great ride by Jefe. This looks a really well thought out bike; geometry is well thought out and explained on the website makes complete sense to me!

  6. looks like someone leaned on it when the plastic was still warm!
