2018 Ibis Ripley LS Ride Review & Impressions Video

Rating:
The Good:

Climbing rocket || Stiff rear end || Decently bottomless || Playful for a 29er

The Bad:

Front end doesn't match the stiffness of the rear || Deore brakes on a $4700 bike??? || Speed compound Nobby Nic not as grippy up front.

Overall Review:

Hey everyone, got the chance to take out the 2018 Ibis Ripley LS. Quick impressions are this thing is a climbing rocket. If you like to put in the miles and vertical this is the perfect bike. The front wasn't near as stiff as the rear however so a stiffer fork and maybe a 140mm fork could serve this bike well. Hope you enjoy the video.
