    Blacked Out Ripley

    I'd still love to see a nuclear pesto Ripley, bit this is still pretty slick!

    Love it. Ironic that I would have paid Ibis extra to have no or at least truly minimalist paint.

    On the plus side, the Ripley looks truly elegant to me compared to the nascaresque pivot paint schemes!

    That's the color I'm waiting for. Way nicer with pure naked carbon.
    Note to self: 85% of FTP for 20 min.

    No love for papasmurfblue?

    That's a nice build. I'm betting still close to 24lbs? (comments said they'd have to weigh it later)

    Looks good, I would ditch the fork and wheel stickers too.

    The cost on having the bike blacked out is $350 and it takes about 7 business days from the date you place your order. The frame is protected with a matte clear coat and we then apply the FrameSkins matte downtube protector as part of the service.

    We can also repaint the decals in a different color but the price varies based on the color. Red is about $450-500 including stripping the green from the frame.

    If you are interested in ordering a frame from us please email Depending on your build we can include this at no additional charge.

    Disclaimer: We do not recommend trying to do this at home or through an automotive painter. Our painter has 10+ years of experience painting carbon frames and takes special precautions to protect the carbon during the whole process.
