    150mm Ripley 27.5

    Just day dreaming about the idea of a 150-160mm Ibis built similarly to the Ripley with 27.5 wheels.

    I'm not a fan of the HD's aesthetics, but the Ripley is a beautiful bike, and I'd love to see it in a more of a long travel setup.

    Interesting, I've never once thought the HD was hard on the eyes, but this is what makes life fun. Everyone's got a different take on things.

    IMO the Ripley is a great looking bike, but the HD has a raw, brutal beauty to it that I find stunning. This sense is likely enhanced by the amazing rides it's taken me on, and that feeling of unadulterated Post-Ride Bike Love you get when you've just ridden your azz off and your trusty ride has helped you win the day...

    Given that the HD has been my all-time fave bike, AND it's gorgeous, all I can think about is the HDR...
