Product Details

Ibis The New Ripley 29

Because Southern Idaho pretty much has two soil types: “sand with goatheads” or “sand over hardpack (with goatheads),” and since our mountains are old and worn down, 29”-wheeled bikes are the norm around here. On this terrain, once you put the power down to get up to speed, big wheels just keep on rollin’, and with the Ripley, Ibis has brought the advantages of a 29” wheel to a lightweight, nimble and fun 120mm trailbike (with two geometry options to boot)

Compatible with 120–140mm travel forks for amazing versatility (Ibis also strongly recommends forks with 51mm rake), the Ripley uses a twin-eccentric bearing version of the DW Link in the rear. This isn’t the DW Link that was on the Iron Horse Sunday, or even the same DW link that was on the Ibis Mojos. No, this one’s not only really slick from a design perspective (there’s a movie of it in action that you can click on above), but it offers more XC-race-like pedaling efficiency and acceleration. In the rough, should you find some, all 4.72” if travel is predictable through the range with nary a sense of wallowing or harsh bottom out. Are you thinkin’ what I’m thinkin’? That’s right: the perfect Super 3-Bears weapon…especially for dawn patrols (just kidding, we hate it when people refer to a morning ride as "Dawn Patrol").

Two geometry options: The nimble geometry of the original, or a new school long and slack version called the Ripley LS (that's "L"ong and "S"lack)
Internal cable routing using our flexible and easy to setup port system [NOTE: this is a huge improvement over the original Ripley]
Increased tire clearance
Threaded bottom bracket
Seat mast lowered by 1/2” to accommodate today’s longer droppers
