Ibis Ripmo AF XL Custom

Hi Guys.. THX for kind feedback!
Yes "custom" travel is made just by the shock.. I had brand new 200x57 CCDB iL and my local shop was able to rebuild it to 210 lenght (changed one eyelet for longer one) so i decided to keep full travel.. there is enough space in linkage.

For photography I can not help sorry.. my good friend is THE MAN behind the lense and I was just the guy who gave him ideas, location, bike and what I want to have on the picture and how :-D

Why would someone spent 1,3k USD on Generic Chinese rim laced on classic Hope Hub with pretty normal spokes and nyples.. why.. why ..why? When you can buy separately cheap-ish carbon rime like Light-bike / Nextie / Derby and lace it yourself on CX Ray / Hope, Syntace / DT350 for lot less.. you get pretty much simillar or better performance and reliable rim...

TORPADO Noriker A 27.5" the italian new freeride

Sometimes i wonder where these weights are comming from.. theres no way this bike has less than 14.. it would be most likely close to 15kg mark...

Liteville 601 MK1 27,5"

Since the frame's stroke curve is quite progressive it feels pretty much the same as 190 version... plenty of stroke, nice mid stroke support and feels to have good small bump compliance... this was even improved with BOS shock... if I can compare with previous Ibis Mojo HD on 160 ... 601 even in 190 version was bit faster uphill and less responsive to pedalling, it´s even bit better now on 165... Personally love setup 170/165 with 65,5 HA
