Ibis Ripley frame 2016Our goal was to bring the advantages of a 29” wheel to a lightweight, nimble and fun trailbike. We think 120 mm of travel is the sweet spot for a snappy bike that isn't cumbersome or heavy. We also wanted the Ripley to be configurable for a wide range of terrain and riding styles, so we made it compatible with 120–140 mm travel forks. We asked Dave Weagle (Mr. dw-link) to give the Ripley pedaling efficiency, XC-like acceleration and optimization for 29er specific gearing in addition to the usual dw-attributes such as excellent small bump compliance, predictable travel through the range with no wallowing or harsh bottom out. This version of the dw-link, like the ones he's done for us in the past, delivers on the promise.
