    Anyone with Microlite on their Ripley?

    Surprised I haven't seen anything showing a Ripley with this rear shock (aside from Lopes racing the Microlite/Trace combo).

    Anyone have this rear shock?

    Hans: Any comments on rear suspension performance differences of the Microlite vs Fox? I suppose Ibis is getting a shock tuned for the Ripley from X-Fusion?

    The feedback has been good. They are pretty close in full open position. The Microlite is a little more open when open and very firm when locked out. If you like the trail setting on the Fox, it's doesn't have anything like that, more like full open or hard tail like lockout. Small bump can feel a bit better. Lockout feels like a real lockout. It's a nice shock for the Ripley since the frame has a lot of anti-squat and many people find that they ride the shocks full open much of the time anyway.

    Hans: Does Ibis get a special tune of the microlite for the Ripley or is it standard?
