    Install Procedure for the GnarCore?

    how long was it going to be from the time I got the email announcing the gGnarCore to the time I bought the GnarCore?...usually about 20 seconds since it's Ibis goodness...but I'm having a hard time visualizing (probably since I'm sitting at my computer) what's involved with installing the little gizmo.

    Pretty simple, go here: Support Videos | Support | Ibis Cycles US second video down the first 47 seconds of the video will show you how to take the old one out. Later on in the video is the replacement procedure.

    Is the Gnarcore only for the lower eccentric? ie, only the lower should/needs to be replaced?

    I'm also digging the little cable dice. Looks way tidier than zip ties

    Correct, lower eccentric core only.

    You obviously don't HAVE to spend anything. These are things to address minor issues that customers have raised and to avoid failures due to over tightening; basically to make the bike easier to live with. But the bike works fine without these items. And having seen both in person I'm pretty confident that they're not making any money off sales of either of these items. Personally I think it's pretty awesome that Ibis has gone to the trouble to produce these to address the itty-bitty issues its customers (most of whom, myself included, seem to LOVE the Ripley) have raised.

    What DrewBird said.

    Ibis has shown they are willing to take care of more significant issues at no cost to the customer. Such as the steerer sleeve for the Ripley's internal cable routing.

    Wow! It's like when Infinity came out with dual exhausts on the model year one newer than mine. Only 6 weeks after I bought it! I can't believe that they didn't offer me a free upgrade....means nothing when I spent $38,000 on the car...

    You should have bought a used BMW M3 for 38 grand, I own a shop you can't beat German build quality. Infinity are building some nice cars though, good strong motors !!

    or you could have bought a new boss 302 mustang...best sounding (quad) exhaust on the road and runs circles around an M3...and let's face it, you'd just look way cooler doing it. ;-)
