    Similar to RS with the Pike, I suspect CC is going to hit a home run with that shock.

    Sweet vid with some impressive riding.

    This could be just the thing for the HDR as well. Who's going to be the guinea pig?

    Damn you Cane Creek, you just whisked $495 out of my wallet! I'm in on this as I'm not thrilled with the Fox shock...

    I didn't think there was anything that would make me love my Ripley more than some good coaching, but I'm intrigued to say the least!

    I called Cane Creek today to get on the pre-order list. It sounds like they aren't going to be shipping aftermarket orders for at least a couple months (he said August possibly) so they can get through their OEM orders first. Sounds like Ibis will be offering this as a spec on new builds (not sure how soon though).

    I'll be interested in your feedback on this. I may get impatient after a while waiting for the DB Inline and switch to this.

    What is that you don't like?
    Are you running a Fox fork?

    Man, that shock looks pretty impressive.

    The Fox shock works ok on individual obstacles, hits, etc, however to me it feels like it quickly gets overwhelmed in situations where there is lots of trail chatter or on extended downhill sections (despite various rebound settings). I'm running a Pike in the front, so that probably exacerbates the feeling since the Pike soaks everything up with no issues. In contrast the shock doesn't feel matched to the Pike.

    That pretty much sums up how I've felt about the Fox shocks on every Ibis I've ridden. I bet it's a regional thing, too - if you have lots of smooth buff stuff where you ride, you'd probably never have any complaints.

    Yes, it clearly states that on the CC site.

    The fine print, right where it says "Bah bah BOOEY".

    Yes, but I have yet to finish the build. In a mis-guided need for bling decided to swap out the headset for a Chris King Inset 3. Big mistake. I will finally get my hands on it tomorrow but it took more than two months ordered directly from CK through my LBS. Repeated calls when unanswered and I received but one token email reply that it had been out of stock but was now available. They were telling me a different thing than the LBS. That was on June 19. I can honestly say that was the worst customer service I've experienced from any bike or part manufacturer in nearly 3 decades.

    On a positive note it's made waiting for the 941 upgrade much easier. I sent the Arch wheelset back and I have a loaner set but hoping the 941s show up soon.

    I switched to Derbys from arch ex and it really is the most noticeable improvement so far. The 941 will be worth the wait. Anxious to hear your opinions on Avalanche mod. I can't seem to keep dampers in my CTD (Nitrogen keeps bleeding into oil.) Fox does keep repairing it under warranty, but being without the bike for two weeks every other month is getting old.

    Nail on the head I think. Upon the initial first few set up rides on my Ripley with the CTD shock I felt like it was up for the task. Buffer, flowier trails on those rides, then when asked to negotiate truly technical terrain I felt like my SID (yes really) was over shadowing the rear end. A PUSH tun, helped balance the bike quite a bit, but I'm pining for an inline now... and a Pike! I think the initial reviews were pretty spot on about this bike, it's a very capable XC bike with a 120 fork and Fox CTD. My hope is that a proper fork and rear shock will transform this chassis at least long enough for Ibis to come to market with a longer legged 27.5.
    My one says BRAP!
