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.
The Ripley LS (Long & Slack)
Long, low and slack is the mantra of new school mountain bikes. Roomier cockpits, shorter stems, stability at speed – all good things that apply equally to 29er’s as they do to 650b. The Ripley LS features a 15mm longer top tube and a slack 67.5 degree head angle.
