    Ibis Tech Video Preview (starring Mr. Ripley)

    In the coming weeks we'll be posting a series of Ibis how-to videos, including up close and personal looks at bearing replacement and swingarm removal on the Ripley. That and a bunch more.
    We pulled a minute of footage out of one of these videos, below. You can see a bit more detail on the guts of the Ripley.
    This is just a sneak peek, not meant to show anything but a few shots of the Ripley. The real videos will be launched in the coming weeks.

    Very Cool! Thanks for posting Scot. That blue looks just a little brighter than my Mojo blue. I'll have to forward this to my brother--he's in the hunt for 29'r.

    Pretty cool to see the founder of the company actually working on one of their bikes. I expect it was just in passing though, between the martini lunch & the afternoon golf round. Those CEOs, living high on the hog!

    Very good to see the earlier design of the Ripley angular-contact bushing suspension pivots with adjustable-friction, was upgraded to roller bearings everywhere. Braking traction is important too.
