Additional Info “The Ripmo AF was an obvious choice for me. As someone who can only have one bike and wanted something that was a little more wallet-friendly, I don’t think I could have gone with a better option. The bike is tricked out with front and rear coil suspension, which I love for being supple and planted regardless of speed or conditions. Two slightly unique features are an Absolute Black 30 tooth oval chainring and a Wolftooth Components dropper post lever, which are two must-have items on any of my bikes in the future. TR37‘s are hard to go wrong with as the one rim that does everything well. Enduro, trail, downhill… you name it and 37’s can handle it with tons of style and performance to spare. They are unlike any carbon rim I have tried in terms of feel and responsiveness. I’ve got the rims laced up to a pair of lime green Industry 9 Hydra Hubs with Sapim D-light spokes. I went with Hydras because it’s hard to go wrong with them as a hub option when factoring in engagement, weight and value all at the same time – these hubs check all the boxes and I can’t recommend them enough!”
