    Which one do I ride today?

    Ripley or SL-R?

    I have to think about selling the SL-R, since I am keeping the Ripley for certain. If the SL-R was an HD, I would be more likely to keep it, but the SL-R probably overlaps with the Ripley a bit too much to rationally consider keeping both. Irrationally, I want to keep it because it is just a beautiful bike to look at and to ride. And it's always good to have a spare bike. After all, no biker has ever said, "I just have too many bikes", amiright?

    Definitely, and I realize that every day and am thankful for essentially winning the lottery and also not blowing it all on hookers and blow.

    Edit: And it's cheaper than keeping a stable of ladies and/or cars.

    I've been going through the mojo vs silk question in the garage every morning. It looks like ibis dropped the silk from the lineup. I think they need to make a chainstay sticker that says "I'd rather be mtn biking"

    I think I need a ripley

    A good problem to have :-) How about replace the SL-R frame with an HD-R so no overlap?

    +1 on that. I agree.

    That's why I'm going to win the $5/foot raffle that Ibis is sponsoring with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship. Then, I can basically give away the SL-R for the cost of some carbon rims for the Ripley. And be very happy indeed.

    Yup, that's the move.

    SL-R is sweet, but you've got the Ripley, so sell-off the SL-R frameset, get the HD-R frameset and just move it all over.

    I thought I loved my SL more then anything untill I got my HD...

    Regardless, you're stoked.

    Dude, you're not going to win. I am! So I can sell off my mojo and have a ripley to compliment my HD.
    Those who know, ride a Mojo AND a Mojo HD.
