    I have been riding my Ripley with 46 mm offset fork since August and I'm very happy with it.

    I had ordered a standard 46 mm offset Revelation RCT3 Solo Air 140 mm for the Ripley before the final Ripley specs including the recommendation for 51 mm offset fork were released. I'm planning to change the fork for 51 mm offset one (Pike perhaps) at some point to see what (if any) difference the different offset really makes.

    However so far I'm very pleased with the performance of the bike and fork with 46 offset. With the 46 mm Revelation the bike is nimble and fun on the trail just like Ibis promised.

    I've used a 120 SID on mine. Works very well, even did an enduro race with it But I'm changing to a 140 Pike with 51mm offset now and will be using this setup this season. Since I haven't tried a 51mm offset fork yet I cannot say anything about the difference, but I can say that coming off the Mojo HD with 170 Lyrik and on to the Ripley with 120 SID 46mm the bike felt really good
