The Ibis Ripley is the 29-inch wheel workhorse of their lineup and a highly acclaimed light trail bike. For 2016 Ibis took the Ripley platform and made a monster out of it. They lengthened by 42mm and slackened the head angle by almost two degrees. What that makes for is a genre-bending trail bike that will keep you satisfied for miles of singletrack. The bike comes in two colorways, Black and Tang, and will feature Boost 148 spacing in the rear starting in November. The bike is available now from your local Ibis dealer with Shimano 142mm spacing.
