IBIS TRANS FAT
The Trans-Fat utilizes the Tranny 29 front triangle, an all new rear triangle and a couple of clever bits to make it compatible with fat bike fitment standards.
WHAT IS A TRANNY?
First, it’s a lightweight, nimble 29er hard tail.
It also converts to a single speed with surprising ease.
And in single speed guise, you can run a smooth and quiet running Gates Carbon Belt Drive.
Finally, it’s easy to break apart for travel if you need to fit it into a confined space (like a suitcase or an apartment in New York City).
The Tranny is a playful bike. The stock setup comes with a 100mm travel front fork, giving the bike a super lively feel (yes, we said lively 29er). A 120mm fork option is available, which mimics the Ripley’s highly regarded front end geometry, only with a lower bottom bracket height and the confident handling that inspires.
