Oiz will lose the TR versions, everything will be 120mm for 2023. I made my order for 2023 Oiz M-Pro with MyO colors 2 weeks ago. Estimated delivery date is 2023 March.
I have seen the spec and a low quality picture, but I was told not to share it. Official presentation should be sometime this month.

I have not seen the Geo, I only saw one low quality pic of top end bike and M-Pro spec.

Got this from facebook oiz group, and mtb-news.de forum. There is a new landing page https://experience.orbea.com/en/built-to-fly
Promotion valid for users who register between 00:01 on 24 October 2022 and 13:59 on 3 November 2022
new bike to be presented by Orbea on 3 November 2022

So I assume the public launch is at 14:00 on 3 November 2022 GMT+2

120mm travel only.
internal routing via headset?
seems like straight seat tube. higher seat tube angle?
slacker head tube angle?
hopefully longer reach.
maybe a bit more lighter weight

Found a page, that was removed, but google cached it: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/ ... delos.aspx

A steeper head angle -67º-, a lower bottom bracket -333mm- and a longer reach -450mm in size M. Short bases -432mm- maintain the agility and reactivity so characteristic of OIZ. In addition, to its low stack -596mm in size M- is added a more vertical saddle angle -72.5º- to maintain the best position on the climbs. Weight of the frame at 1750 g

It's a slacker head angle - 1 degree slacker than previous 120mm fork TR. The seattube angle is 76.5.

The really good thing about this new model is that it's designed around the longer travel, whereas the old Oiz TR was a 100mm frame with the front end rolled up and back by a longer fork. They weren't the only ones to do this but it kinda sucked that the TR had a 1cm shorter reach and 1 degree slacker STA than the XC version. Now it makes way more sense as a whole bike.
