    Any Ripley's running the X-Fusion Microlite?

    I just ordered one and should have it early next week. For the price I'm paying, I couldn't pass it up. It will come directly from X-fusion with a custom Ripley tune (proprietary). Anyone else out there ripping with one? Supposedly it should feel much more plush than the RP23 in the open, and a full lock out at a flip of a switch...we'll see

    With the smaller body do you feel it fade (heat up) at all on longer rocky technical descents? How well does it climb on technical trails vs the RP23 in the open? I just like the idea of X-Fusion and Ibis working together on building a tune specifically for the Ripley.

    Nice! Well, if Lopes and Jeff Kendall Weed rips one, how bad could it be . I'll post back next week after I work it though the Santa Cruz mountains. Thanks!
