Long and Slack. Roll large & descend right alongside the finest of any trail bike.
The Ibis Ripley LS has been rebooted. The 3.0 version builds on the Ripley LS reputation and adds only a few small tweaks in order upgrade and enhance its versatility and performance. The 3rd Generation Ripley has an all new swingarm and clevis, and a wider upper eccentric. The swingarm will now accommodate 29" tires up to 2.6” wide such as the Schwalbe 2.6" Nobby Nic. You already know that the frame accommodates any 1x drivetrain set up, but even with the new wider eccentrics, the swingarm will accommodate the 2X Shimano side swing front derailleurs including Di2. The 3.0 retains the nimble, light and responsive trail geometry of its predecessors and makes it one of the most playful and capable twenty-niners out on the trails today.
Constructed of high quality carbon fiber, the Ripley frame is incredibly lightweight, will absorb trail shock, and, oh yes, she is pretty. At the heart of the Ibis Ripley LS is the eccentric DW- Link Suspension. With 120mm of travel it gobbles up debris on the trails, while preserving pedaling efficiency. DW- Link features excellent small bump compliance and predictable travel through the range with no walling or harsh bottoming out. To ensure superior maneuverability and stability, the Ripley LS has a tapered head tube and boost 148 dropouts. The Ripley 29 LS 3.0 is definitely a bike you’d take home to meet your mother. Just keep it on a short leash.
Your Ibis Ripley LS 3.0 GX bike will arrive at your doorstep with some of the best componentry SRAM has to offer. A Fox 34 Performance Series fork, Float DPS Performance rear shock and a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain gives you the freedom and range to take on any terrain. The Drivetrain is complimented by a set of Shimano hydraulic brakes, Ibis bar and stem and KS Lev dropper post topped with a custom Ibis saddle. The 34mm wide Ibis 938 wheels are wrapped in 2.6” wide Schwalbe Nobby Nics.

Boost 148 rear axle spacing allow the tire clearance, keeps chainstays short and stiffens things up for higher performance and ride feel.
Coming off of a '13 Stumpy EVO 29, the Ripley charges up hills, and just screams down them. The bike just plain feels super light and agile for a 29er. Hands down one of the best bikes I have ever ridden. As far as the Nor Cal area, the fork is upgradable to 140mm and I highly recommend it to give great BB clearance, a touch more slack, and greater down hill control. 140/120 Ripley is where it's at for a light quick do-it-all bike! Climbs like a Rocky Balboa!
