A LIVELY, PLAYFUL 29'ER
Things are changing fast in the world of mountain biking. What was once considered "long and slack" is now considered "short and steep" in many riders' eyes. With new school geometry pushing top tube length out, slackening head tube angle, and lowering BB height, it's clear that the "long and slack" trend is taking over. While the previous Ripley was no slouch, it was built fairly conservatively, and was falling behind geometry trends for the riders who prioritize descending capabilities.
