It’s new bike day in the land of Ibis! Chuck and the crew are now proud parents of not one but two new Ripley 29’ers. Twins no less     The New Ripley The ‘New Ripley’ retains the nimble geometry of the original Ripley but with the addition of internal cable routing, increased tire clearance, the return of the threaded bottom bracket, lowered seat mast, Boost 148, molded chainstay and seatstay protection, stiffer eccentric cores and very cool tang and black color options.

Kendall-Weed goes No...

Daaamn, another banger Mojo HD3 edit from Jeff Kendall-Weed and Kitsbow! We stole Jeff Kendall-Weed for three days in June to explore a few of Washington’s iconic mountain bike trails. The diversity and quality of riding should be evident from the imagery captured and the smile on Jeff’s...

Winter Solstice

June 22nd has gotta be one of my favorite days of the year. It might be as cold and grey as any other Winter’s day in Central Victoria but from here on it means there’ll more sunlight hours each day until mid Summer. NICE!
