    Sorry, none of this is true.
    We'll announce all the details and start shipping when we have them in stock.

    This didn't make you look stupid at all.

    In the mean time, we're working very hard to get it in your hands as fast as we can.
    Not sure if you work there or worked there, but it sounds like you don't. You should not be posting stuff like this. Hans will post when they are ready, not someone who thinks they have inside knowledge of.

    No kidding... that first sounds like someone who works there.

    Edit: didn't realized he quoted from ibis website (first post) - made it look like it came from him.

    Yeah, that's not a good idea to do for sure.

    Yeah, looks like the info he recieved when he visited in SC was not correct or that he misunderstood. I have no reason to not trust him. It is a bit difficult to verify this info when Ibis has decided to say nothing before they are ready to ship...

    Sorry for misleading you. I guess I'm just as excited as everyone else who has decided on the Ripley.

    The "list" is pretty unofficial, I guess. I have signed up for a waiting list at my Ibis importer, but no money has changed hands yet. It's their internal customer waiting list, but may be used to communicate to Ibis the number and sizes of bikes that they want. That allocations to countries and dealers are being made is probable. When reffering to "sold out", it could mean that the first batch has been allocated. Or not.

    that one you quoted from him is actually straight from the Ibis website...but the one about the first batch being sold out was obviously BS

    Yeah definitely no one on this forum should talk about bikes that haven't been released. Calm down.

    You're right, I should have worded it better. But still, leaking false info is potentially very bad. People begin to believe it, and then you have people who have to come in and answer for this like Hans had too.

    Well I don't think he or anyone else from Ibis or any other bike company should have to use the forums to squash false talk about release dates or anything else. It's not fair to them. It also gets people to start asking that person questions, and as it did, started to make stuff up. You can have big problems when this kind of thing happens, mostly from angry customers.

    You rang?

    We want to keep it positive and I'll chime in if there something inaccurate, but basically, we're not going to say much of anything until we're full on with the official intro and shipping etc.

    Thanks and Cheers all,

    As long as the info on the website is still accurate, I'm happy. Would love to know if those plans have changed at all, i.e. if the bike isn't going to make it in 2012 or if the travel/geo has changed significantly. I've managed to talk myself in to waiting on a long travel 29er, so I'm hoping to get the chance to consider the Ripley before I talk myself back in to it.

    ...it's August 1st. 2012 still has some legs. When they're ready to ship I suspect we'll be the first to know.

    Please make it :

    -compatible with a reverb stealth by being able to exit the hose trough the window to access the excentric
    -compatible with the specialized 142+ standard (even if you don't say so)
    -with a front derailleur fixation that goes down LOW for use planning to use only 2 small rings (20-33 for me)

    We have skipped Interbike the last couple of years and will continue to do so. It's withering and is also a huge shake down if you know what I mean.

    It cost 1K to hang our sign, 1K to get an extension cord, etc.etc. x 20 They've abused their customers a bit more than we can put up with any more. (I'd been to every one since 1980!) There are so many other ways to communicate now, that Interbike is not as essential as it was in the past. We will be at Eurobike, but will not be putting out any more info on the Ripley until we are ready to ship.

    It's tough to keep things under wraps for an extended time when we're so excited about it, but we think it's probably the best.

    H
    I know EXACTLY what you mean... I used to have my own product and booth at IB.... they need to be very careful, there may not be an Interbike someday... at least as we have known it...

    You have a good product, word of mouth sells very well. Myself, like many others are just a bit crazy with the wait

    But wait I will

    does anyone know if the DW link 2xc suspension will trickle down to the Mojo's or is it only for the Ripley 29er? Just wondering is all.
