I could definitely see that being the case and would definitely be a concern as they are not very established in the US.

Thanks for the reply Jeff and I agree about the one size fits all approach. I was running no tokens 3 bands and weighed about 200. I think if I'd stress anything about the Megneg is that it's a change/different not an "upgrade". I think in a lot of cases "not yours" it was being pitched as an upgrade instead of an option. I've had several people ask me about the megneg since I seems to have had it before it came out. I generally just said I didn't care for it, but it would probably be good for someone substantially more gnar then myself. All that being said after moving to an X2 I miss any version of the Super deluxe.

There is going to be a fair amount of personal preference involved in anything to do with suspension. There is a good chunk of rationale as to why riders should like a more linear setup (front and rear!). Conversely, there is a different school of thought where a...more

Used the Megneg About 6 months on a dead linear bike (current Slash) it did make the bike more progressive but it. Made the small bump noticably worse. Also for no reason I can explain I was getting significantly more pedal strikes at the same sag. Went back to the factory can and the bike was better all around. Wasn't bad just wasn't better.

I've owned 2 turners , installed 3 needle bearing kits and ridden a ripmo . I've also cycled a ripmo's suspension without a shock. Even the drag from one bushing is noticable. Ibis stated that bushing drag was an " issue " with the Ripmo. Any arguments that are pro pushing are marketing to explain why a frame that's 2500 plus is using parts that cost cents instead of dollars. The only bearings I've replaced are in a 8 year old bike that was stored out side, my Turner needed bushings twice in a year , I loved that bike but that's why I sold it.

The front threaded insert on previous gen Ripmo's is round and glued into the frame. The glue fails and then the treaded insert rotates inside the frame it's a known issue and ibis makes a "repair kit " for it . The repair kit is them telling you to cut it out with a Dremel and then to glue in a new one. I've see this in person twice and the process is gross. If it was literally any shape it wouldn't be entirely relying on glue to hold it in place .
That being said I like Ibiseseses but that's exactly why I wouldn't buy a current one.

Bushings again...and round hardware looks like it will have the same problems the original had. Too bad.

Super nice build , sure on that 32lbs? Mines a large frame 9.8 and came in at 29.3 with 2.6 SE4s . Cush core and DD really add that much weight ?
