Ibis has updated the geometry for their extremely popular Ripley 29er’ trail bike. The LS stand for long and slack. As you guessed, the top tube is now 1/2″ longer and the head angle went from 69.2 degrees to 67.5 for more stability at high speed steep descents. The 3rd Generation Ripley has an all new swingarm and clevis, and a wider upper eccentric. The swingarm will now accommodate 29″ tires like the Schwalbe 2.6″ Nobby Nic or 2.5″ Maxxis WT tires. The suspension design is still the incredibly efficient DW link that allows for easy climbing and provides an amazing amount of small bump sensitivity. This makes the bike ride like a magic carpet, your rear wheel stays on the ground giving you more traction.
Ibis offers several different build options to fit your budget. This particular bike consist of Sram Guide RSC brakes, a SRAM Eagle 1×12 group, and a Fox post. The Ibis 938 wheels feature a fairly wide rim and keep the price tag lower. You will be amazed by how well this bike climbs to the top, allowing you to get even more fun filled downhill runs in!
