It wasn't that long ago that Ibis shook up the world of high-end mountain bikes with their release of their Ripmo AF; an aluminum version of the wildly popular Ripmo frame with a bit more attitude and ultra-smart budget build. Well, they've done it again but this time with the Ripmo's little sibling, the Ripley. Ibis is now offering a more aggressive alloy version of their more svelte and nimble 29er 120mm XC/trail bike. With this new AF iteration, the Ripley is no longer a slightly aggressive cross country/lightweight trail bike. Now the Ripmo and the Ripley are opposite ends of the same rowdy spectrum. The new Ripley AF, despite it’s size, is an extremely capable and rowdy trail bike. So, we headed out to the trail, threw a leg over this new rig and checked out some of the changes and improvements Ibis has made to the new Alloy Ripley.
There are few topics that spur as much debate within the bike world as the ever-growing presence of e-bikes. For some, they are an abomination to our pedal-based love, while others find e-bikes to be the very thing that got them on a bike for the first time or let’s them keep pedaling. Like many of you, we’ve wrestled with these same issues, and have found that the better we understand something the smarter we can be about deciding where we stand. This article is here to help you gain a deeper understand of what e-bikes are, who they are for, and how they fit in our world of bikes. READ TO LEARN MORE.
When Orbea launched the 2020 Occam M-LTD, we knew this was going to be a great all-around trail/light enduro mountain bike, with 140mm of rear travel. But, we wanted to know just how much this bike could handle and how good it really was. So, we set Jeff Kendall-Weed up with a loaner bike to put through it's paces to give us the good, the bad, and find out what he would change if it were his personal bike. Jump into our blog to read the full review, plus one hell of a riding video.
It was only a few short years back, when Evil introduced the original Following. Kevin Walsh wanted to make a 29er that he didn't hate. Not only did he not hate his creation, he absolutely loved what he dreamed up and the Following ushered in a new era of big wheel bikes meant to get rowdy on. Now, Evil introduces us to an all-new version. Can it redefine the category once again? Check out the details below from Evil's Following V4 press release.
The Orbea Occam has dialed geometry that lands squarely in "trail bike" territory. Excelling in a variety of terrain, Orbea's short-travel 29er is the perfect bike for true mountain biking. Enjoy every aspect of the trail with Orbea's newest offering.
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.
