If something ain't boke, don't fix it... unless you can make it better. That is exactly what Ibis Cycles did with their new Ripmo V2. The bike that everyone loved is now a little slacker, a little longer, and a little more coil-friendly. Take a look at the Ibis Ripmo V2.
When the Ripmo came out, it took the mountain bike world by storm. It was a big-wheeled, long-travel bike that was ready for a big climb or long descent. It might be hard to improve something that is already exceptional, but Ibis took up the challenge. The Ibis Ripmo 2 improves upon the already radtastic Ripmo.
Compared to the previous model, the Ripmo 2 has a one-degree slacker 64.9° head angle, a more progressive suspension leverage ratio, and is compatible with select coil shocks. The carbon frame is featherlight and ultra-durable and features a polycarbonate downtube protector and molded rubber swingarm protectors. It has 160mm of front travel and 147mm DW-Link rear travel. It's compatible with up to 2.6" tires, has in-frame molded cable tunnels, a threaded bottom bracket, and has ISCG-05 mounts for a bash guard.
