    Seems you're quite popular in your own visitor messages as well.

    Enough. I won't repeat all the above reasons as to why to back off on the Ripley, it's been eloquently stated here. You're on this thread supposedly because you love the rides Ibis has created for all of us to enjoy. We are all part of the Ibis family, not a bunch of f**king whiners.

    I am ashamed that Scott and Hans have to read some of this cr*p, it's pathetic and embarrassing.
    We are damn lucky Scott had the passion, desire and incredible drive to bring Ibis back from the dead. They are putting out killer bikes now (ie I ride a SL), and they will continue to innovate.

    If you want a Ripley and can pony up the coin, you WILL get your Ripley, and you will love it. Man up. If I owned the company and heard all this cr*p, frankly, I'd pull the plug and just go ride.

    I think Ibis is just as cool as the next guy, and the Ripley will be a great bike, like all of their others, but you have to hand it to the Ibis fanboys. They take it to a new level.

    Assume when "you" start your own mtnbike company, you'll show Ibis how to do it right, right?

    Wow, where did that negativity come from. Calling me a whiner for stating that I decided to buy a different top of the line bike because this one was not available when I wanted to purchase it. As stated I would have waited if some more specific information was available. Hopefully Hans and Scott do read this so they can see how they could have gained another customer, unfortunately they lost one for this year. Maybe the Ripley will be my next bike, or maybe not...I just could not wait any longer.

    Why would we "back off", in a discussion about a bike that is yet to be released; isn't it ok to mention why we are not waiting. Ibis is just a company making bikes for a profit... you may think that the owners poop sunflowers and embodied in their bikes is the second coming of christ, but I don't insult you for this unbridled passion.

    Settle down!

Just to set things straight, Even Plews won this race 2 or 3 years ago on a freaking hard tail 26er just after coming off of a bad flu....and that was with a fit Travis Brown on his tail.
    He doesn't need any special bike to win.
