    -with a front derailleur fixation that goes down LOW for use planning to use only 2 small rings (20-33 for me)

    142x12 is not a specialized standard, it's industry.

    True, but the 142+ is proprietary to Specialized. The "+" refers to the hub having the driveside spoke holes, freehub/cassette being 2mm wider from center. They claim wider spoke placement = stiffer wheel. However that is also 2mm less clearance the cogs have with the frame on a normal 142 dropout. I know on my Ibis Mojo HD there is no way to get the 142+ hub to work in that frame.

    Nice pics of Lopes and the guys at Ibis riding at Thanksgiving on the Ibis website. Looks like Brian is having a good time on his X-Fusion equipped Ripley.

    It would be nice if they offered a Ripley "Special Blend" build with the X-Fusion stuff...hint, hint

    Hans,
    The Ripley......Ibis is doing something bold & new, why not throw in something old and beloved? Give us the Ripley in Guinness foam color option. Also, for that color option only, put a beer bottle opener on the rear end of the derailleur hanger. JP

    Have they posted the geometry yet? Hopefully Lopes influenced the numbers again and we see something around a 68 HA.

    i doubt it will be that drastic. it started with 71 deg hta with angleset compatibility. Lopes may have convinced them to go a degree slacker (which would be nice), but I can't see it going beyond that.

    Yep, sounds as if he may influence the numbers alright, shrinking the wheels about 3" or so:
    @BrianLopes: Oh & rode my 26"mojo slr today & it was a nice reminder that 26" wheels r just more fun to ride. Much more lively, flickable, & snappier👍

    "Delivery not in the first half of 2012"

    The ol' website could use some updating now that it's 2013.

    Believe it or not.

    I'm sure the Ripley is going to be an awesome bike...someday.

    I don't regret for one minute for cancelling my order back in February and picking up a Spesh S-Works FSR 29er. At least I was able to get in a full season of riding instead of STILL waiting for the Ripley.

    This bike is taking waaaaaaaay too long.
