Ibis Ripley AF Aluminum 29" Complete Mountain Bike - SLX Build w/ Alloy Wheels, X-Large, Silver
*Please note all IBIS Alloy bikes incur a $50 shipping charge*
ALL NEW RIPLEY AF
The Ripley AF is the beloved, category-defying, short-travel, singletrack-scorching Ripley - rendered in aluminum, with more aggressive geometry. All the sizzle and pop of the carbon Ripley, now available as a complete bike at a wallet friendly price.
CONTEMPORARY GEOMETRY, TELEPATHIC HANDLING
A trail-friendly 65.5-degree head angle (that’s a degree slacker than the carbon version) and short (44mm) offset 130mm fork combined with 29” wheels makes for a super planted but still playful, precise but still nimble front end feel. Meanwhile, a 76-degree seat angle puts your power directly to the pedals, and the short chainstays and pedal-friendly dw-link kinematics deliver that power without squandering a single watt
Their 15 years of collaboration with Dave Weagle has yielded unparalleled climbing efficiency and tractability. Incredible snap and responsiveness. And a whole mess of plush, chunder-eating, downhill-crushing goodness. All wrapped up together in the best suspension you’ll find anywhere. It’s that good.

Have not gotten to the trails yet. Have been able to go through the brake bedding process.
So far it seems good, ride is quiet, dropper works well. Still tweaking the suspension, much faster than my previous 27.5 bike.
With pedals it weighs in at 32.6 pounds.
A light weight compared to other alloy bikes out there. Pro Bike Supply was a very lucky find, a class act on all fronts.
