Ibis Ripley LS Frame

Ibis Ripley LS Boost Frame

Ibis is known in the cycling industry for the expert craftsmanship and high-grade materials that go into the manufacturing of their bicycles. To understand how it all started, take a trip back in time to 1980. Ibis founder, Scot Nicol read an article about the new “Klunker Bike” movement in the Spring issue of CoEvolution Quarterly-a friendly hippy magazine. The seed was planted. In 1981, in a workshop in Mendocino, California, the first Ibis bicycle was made. Glassy eyed onlookers saw the bicycle and asked Scot if he could produce more. Fast forward 30 years to present-day Ibis: a renowned boutique bicycle manufacturer with humble beginnings that continues to raise the bar in the mountain bike world.

The Ibis Ripley 29 has been a long time coming. After about a half decade of R&D, Ibis has proudly released the Ripley 29er. Ibis’ goal was to create a nimble, responsive, and light 29er. Take note that these adjectives are not generally associated with 29er, thus the multiple years of R&D. The Ripley 29 is a true trail bike, one that allows you to throw on a helmet and explore the ends of the earth. Once you throw your leg over the Ibis Ripley 29, you’ll experience a new kind of cycling.

Carry on a conversation as you and your buddies climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the Ripley 29 climbs like a young mountain goat! You’ll surely crack a smile as the wind rustles through your helmet, while you enjoy the local singletrack trails. The 67.5 degree head angle allows you to securely point the bike back down the mountain, and put those on a 26” wheeled bike to shame. Ibis introduced a new version of the Ripley frame that features a longer and slacker geometry option. Ibis Cycles researched what people liked in a 29er geometry, and they found mountain bikers yearned for the steering of a 26” bike, but with the advantages of the bigger wheels. The 67.5 degree head angle (with a 130mm travel fork) provides downhill confidence, while the 51mm fork offset gives the responsiveness that riders love.

Constructed of high quality carbon fiber, the frame is incredibly lightweight. Not only is the carbon fiber frame lightweight, but it absorbs trail shock, as well. Not to mention, the lack of weld lines looks sleek. The heart of the Ibis Ripley 29 is the eccentric DW-Link Suspension. With 120mm of DW-Link travel gobbles up debris on the trail, while preserving the pedaling efficiency. DW-Link suspension features excellent small bump compliance, predictable travel through the range with no walling or harsh bottoming out. The Ripley LS Boost Frame features a Fox FLOAT DPS EVOL shock in the rear, and is compatible with 120mm to 140mm travel forks. To ensure superior maneuverability, the Ripley 29 has a tapered head tube. The Ripley adopts a new cable routing system that runs internally routed droppers, mechanical or hydraulic. The Ripley 29 is definitely a bike you’d take home to meet your mother.

This is a great looking and performing frame, but I am dissapointed that the rear brake line is not internally routed. I am also not impressed with the way the derailleur and dropper cables are internally routed. Could be done better/cleaner. Yeti has it down!
