Leave it to Ibis to keep things exciting. In addition to releasing exciting new bikes such as the Mojo HD4, Ripmo, and DV9, Ibis recently revealed their top secret in-house carbon frame production capabilities. In an industry where nearly everything is now produced overseas in Asia, Ibis is bringing it back to home turf. Somehow, they managed to do all of this while still keeping the frame at the same price, which is impressive to say the least. Typically, USA handmade carbon bike frames will run many many thousands of dollars. The first of the frames to be produced in their Santa Cruz, California facility is the Ripley Gen 3, but only in a size small for the time-being. The other sizes of the Ripley are still produced overseas, as are the rest of their frames. That said, we expect that Ibis will be working hard to scale their operation to accommodate larger production runs on future models.

Now in it's third generation, the Ripley continues on it's successful path to trail bike nirvana. The Ripley LS keeps it's name, but features a couple important updates. As tires continue to evolve, we are seeing more and more options for sizing, including the all new Schwalbe and Maxxis 2.6". This not-quite-plus-sized tire seems to be gaining loyalty quick, and Ibis saw the need to allow riders this option on the Ripley LS, so as you can probably guess, the new Ripley LS is compatible with 29" tires up to 2.6". The Gen 3 frame also gets revamped main-pivot eccentrics. On the Generation 1 and 2 Ripley, Ibis maintained compatibility with the increasingly rare 3X chainrings. Maintaining that clearance meant they had to use a slightly narrower upper eccentric. Now that we have ultra wide ratio cassettes from Shimano and SRAM, Ibis decided that sacrificing 3X compatibility was a good trade off for increased stiffness of the rear end of the bike. The upper eccentric on the Gen 3 is now the same as the lower, gaining more stiffness in the process. Other than these changes, the Gen 3 Ripley LS shares the same geometry, travel, and main frame as the previous Ripley LS, but of course, it's available in a couple new sweet colors.

The Ripley LS (stands for Long / Slack) has  won over the hearts of many mountain bikers out there, including a few of us here at Fanatik. It is simply a damn fine trail bike in nearly every regard. It is not a wildly aggressive 29'er with gobs of travel, rather it's the trail bike that you can pedal for miles on end, and still have a blast on more technical descents. Toss a set of 2.6" tires on it, and you've got a 29'er with ample traction for the loose/dusty and/or muddy conditions.

Other details of the Ripley LS include a threaded 73mm bottom bracket shell, ported internal cable routing, and 12x148mm Boost rear dropout spacing. The Ripley is backed by Ibis' lifetime no-fault warranty or 7 Years for defects in material/workmanship.
