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.
It can be argued that tires may be the most important (and most affordable) upgrades you can put on your bike. This rings true whether you are churning out miles on pavement, grinding gravel backroads, racing your local cyclocross course, or blasting dirt trails on your mountain bike. Getting the most out of your bike by matching quality compounds, impeccable construction, and cutting-edge tire tech is firmly rooted in the ethos of Specialized. Tires were the first product that Specialized offered and continues to be a fundamental focus of research and development for the brand.
The tires you choose for your mountain bike are arguably one of the most important components in your whole bike build. They are the key contact point between your bike and the ground and dictate grip, corner confidence, initial suspension, braking control, and rolling resistance. We've created this article to help you navigate the numerous options of tread patterns, compounds, protection and sizing for all the available tires from Maxxis.
Deity has just introduced the Deftrap; a pedal that marries the massive pedal platform and other key features of the T-Mac with the tried-and-true reliability and value of the composite Compound pedals.

We've just gotten our hands (er... feet) on these new pedals and are putting them through testing for deeper look videos and articles. In the meantime, read on below for the official press release from Deity.

When Bob Fox started making prototype motocross suspension in a friend’s garage in the mid 70’s, we doubt he was aware of the momentous impact he’d have on suspension technology for decades to come.

No matter your off-road discipline, Fox has what you need. We've broken down their entire lineup of forks to help you find the right fork for your ride.
