    Finally!

    Ordered mine as soon as I got back from a day long demo on a Ripley from River Rat in Sacramento...

    EDIT: It's been 4 months..... it finally has arrived - building it MONDAY 8/6

    I used to have a Mojo SL..... best 26er I ever had. I've been waiting for this "29er Mojo" for so long! I was a bit tweaked at waiting so long and I was not going to be swayed by all the hype... but yes, it's that much better than my TallBoy. More fun, more plush, stiffer, more precise steering and so on...

    At some point I will try out my 2013 Lefty on it, just for kicks even though the offset is 46mm not the recommended 51mm ;-)

    Large Black/Green
    XX1 cranks with XO1 build (been XTR all my life, gonna give sram a try)
    120 Fox - w/ remote lockout OR 120mm Lefty carbon XLR - depends ;-)
    Reynolds EC90 carbon wheels (may go back to Stan's Race Gold's - lighter!)
    Maxxis Ignitor 2.1's
    XT brakes
    Ashima AirRotors 160mm
    Ibis carbon flat bars
    Ibis 90mm stem
    KS LEV drop seatpost
    pieced together "4 Ti" Egg Beater pedals
    WTB Silverado Ti saddle

    Came in at 23.9lbs.... not bad with a dropper seatpost :-)
    With the Lefty 23.4 lbs

    We need details!

    And I see you went with a 120mm fork. Why did you decide on that over a 140?

    Nice build. Care to elaborate on your custom SID fork? What did you have to do in order to get 120mm of travel and 51mm of offset? Thanks.

    What cable housing did you use for the rear derailleur? My Jagwire Ripcord WILL NOT thread thru the hole near the upper shock mount. The hole is either too small or the cable housing is too big. This is the only thing holding me up at this point. I never would have thought that cable housing would be the killer.

    UPDATE: The Jagwire Ripcord is 4.5mm diameter vs. SRAM (and others) at 4.0mm. Believe it or not that .5 mm does make the difference between threading and not threading thru the shock mount frame hole.

    After finding some scrap 4.0mm housing and confirming it would fit, I then took to the Jagwire housing with an 11 blade scapel and stripped off the other color layer and VOILA it fits now

    I will order some SRAM housing to do it proper soon, but at least I can ride until then.

    Crisis temporarily avoided

    I'm ordering my Ripley without being able to see the two frame colours live. I live in Australia and there are none that I can find. Im really stuck between the blue and the green/black. I feel like with the green/black you can hardly see the green . . . . . .

    Also, the block is the 'raw' carbon fibre, or is it a black paint? I figure if it is 'raw' fibre, would the blue finish offer it some more protection?

    Appreciate your opinion folks, especially if you've been able to walk into a shop and compare!

    It is a raw black/carbon. I wouldn't think that the paint would offer any protection, I prefer the carbon finish because I don't have to worry about the paint getting scratched or chipped.

    Is the green a sticker or paint?

    Good point about the scratching and chipping . . . .

    I think its like a vinyl graphic, the guys at Ibis could tell you for sure. Doesn't feel like paint, feels thicker than that.

    I'm pretty sure the green is paint. I saw one at the LBS I bought my SL-R from, and it had a chip in it.

    Can you shed some more light on the custom SID. Was it just a CSU swap or was there more work required?

    Ps I also PM'd you the same question.

    I'm in the same boat as you? I'm hoping to get a look at both before deciding, but not holding out great hope of that happening. One beauty of waiting for the XL I guess?

    Where abouts are you & which shop are you going through? I'm in Brisbane.

    Heya Alixta,

    Im in sydney but im flying to the USA for a month long holiday [family and riding]. Buying it there. . . . . bringing it back

    Well, i've already bought it. Went with the green/black in the end but only cos it was too late to change to the blue, bike arrives at the shop next week I think.

    I'm thinking the blue has more character now that i've seen more pictures.

    Exx

    I was in love with the blue until I saw the black and green in person. Mine is black and green and love it the green is very bold the entire bottom side of the down tube is green. and the inside of the chainstays just flash. the black is a natural carbon with a matte clear coat. You can still see the carbon fiber but its very subtle. the green is a paint or graphic under the matte finish I believe.

    I have used this, it works well on the downtube. It is very thick, much more so than helicopter tape. Which is good, but it is hard to cover areas with lots of curves/angles. Heli tape works better in those situations.

    Do you think you'd fit a 34 or 36T XX1 front on there? It looks mighty tight with a 32, but I'm hoping that is an optical illusion.

    With the long steep climbs here in CO I went 30t. I still have the 32t if I need it. I would think a 34t would work. I thought there was a thread about this that Hans responded to outlining what they tested

    Nice! I'm not to savvy on the Springs trails but I know they have some good stuff. You hitting anything else in CO? We moved out from Norcal about 3.5 yrs ago and love it. I do need a Demo and Skeggs fix though in a big way! We hope to make it back out in late Summer.

    I've been waiting to contribute to this thread for nearly two weeks while bits and bobs have been arriving to complete the build on this...

    24.5 pounds as it sits, which I'm very happy with. I've only been for a quick skid so far, but will be getting out for a few hours tomorrow. Can't wait!

    Curious as to why? Just found it too small? I was convinced from the get go that I would need an XL but thus far I'm pretty happy on my Large. I still would like to give an XL a go one of these days.

    Enve AM's on Chris King 32h
    WTB Weirwolf 2.3 tubeless
    Time ATAC Titan

    27.5 lbs

    a couple things on cable routing:
    1. I ran front der and seatpost cable in through the frame - leaving the rear der cable to track around the outside left with the rear brake line. I think it looks cleaner that way and there doesn't seem to be a functional downside at this point.
    2. I put the LEV barrel adjuster just above the rear shock instead of out front. My LEV on my HD had the barrel adjuster in the traditional place...and it's fine...just looks a little cleaner without the adjuster bobbling around out in front of the bars. It's not like you need to adjust it while riding much, if any...I also replaced the stock LEV housing with the same Shimano SIS housing I used on the rest of the bike...looks better...probably works better too.
    3. zip tie to zip tie loop where the front der housing drops past the rear housing at the cable routing gizmo...holds the front der housing stable and out away from the frame.
    4. I used the recommended zip ties inside the top tube to eliminate cable rattle...easy to do and seems to work great.

    I can provide pics of these if people are interested...the attached photo was from last night before trimming the brake lines...hence, the HUGE rear brake line looking out in front.

    Pics added

    A couple decent pics...

    a couple close ups showing:
    - that answer bar's sweep..which I really like
    - the cable routing up front - with the rear der routed outside the frame alongside the rear brake and the LEV routed through the frame - which I think looks cleaner - and Shimano SIS housing on the LEV instead of the stock stuff to make it consistent with the other housings
    - the cable 'bundle' above the rear shock that includes the LEV barrel adjuster...again, just cleans up the front of the bike and allows for a shorter run of cable from bar-to-frame for the LEV with a nice, even, sweep

    Love that bar too. Do you run a shorter stem compared to regular bars? I find 20mm less works best for me.

    I don't. they claim that with the forward sweep section (balanced with the rearward sweep section) that there's no need to change stem length...and, so far, I agree with that.

    Maybe because I went from 660 width bars, or maybe the different wrist angle? Either way I'm a lot more comfortable on the bike(s) now.

    My medium Ripley will be here on Monday and I just wanted to get an early start on sharing the build. Pictures will follow by end of the week. Hopefully the bike will come in sub 26 lbs. Seat and rear tire is undecided right now.

    The only decision I'm trying to make is whether or not to go with a 2.1 or 2.3 rear S-Works Control tire. This will be my primary trail bike with a dedicated 20 lb. XC rig also in the stable.

    Should be close to your 26 ish ... I'm guessing. Your shock may be a little heavier and the Dropper post will add a bit. Medium frame brings down some from my large frame also. I came in at 25 lbs 10 oz. Bet you can't wait eh ? My boy goes on ride #6 today. I Guess .... 25 lbs 11 oz. for yours!

    @bassn: why would you compromise on volume for the rear tyre? Weight? Several reviews have mentioned that a skinny rear does the Ripley no favours.

    I ended up purchasing 2.3's for both front and rear. My initial thought was to use the slightly used 2.1 but decided the new Ripley deserves better

    Yes, they do. The S-works Purgatory and Control are a bit narrower than most 2.3's.

    They were custom ordered along with the rim. I'm pretty sure if you contact Enve they would be willing to send you some.

    FYI...I measured my rear 2.3" S-works controls at 2.2 with 25 psi from knob to knob with calipers.

    Lot's of weight could be lost with lighter tires, bars, pedals and fork, but it's set up for what I ride, more AM than XC. I will be testing some different tires, wheels and forks soon.

    Tire clearance is minimal (very close on the right inside of the clevis), and the tire can't be installed if inflated (used to the deflate technique on my Ibis HD with 650B).

    That tire will for sure buzz the seat tube at full compression - be sure to put some tape or other protection back there!

    Those were actually prototypes that I was testing back last year (DHF 29x2.5, 60 tpi single-ply casing w/ EXO, aramid bead, 3C Maxx Terra).

    I did see the EXO/TR version some for sale at universal => Universal Cycles -- Maxxis Minion DHF EXO Tubeless Ready 29" Tire

    Heck yes! Just ordered a DHF 2.5 for the front and a DHR 2.3 for the rear. Should hook up nicely and support aggressive riding for this bike.

    Any suggestion for on-line store to get a Ripley? I Like Competitive Cyclist site but everything is retail. Should I just buy frame and G2 Fox fork and get everything else on ebay?

    I plan on using the Syntace W35 rim and that is probably gonna stretch out the Hans Dampf a bit more and (I hope) avoid contacting the seat tube.

    Frame protection for Ripley

    I received a large Ibis Ripley frame from an interstate bike shop on Friday and designed a frame protection kit for it over the weekend. It is one of my most detailed kits, offering comprehensive protection. The ultra matte film looks great on the black green frame. I'm quite happy with the result.
    Now i've seen one up close... I want one!

    Yes, a drain hole on the DT just ahead of the BB. You may find a few across the frame if you go looking for them.

    @fishboy, With your Frameskin protection film, how much added weight to the frame? What's the weight of your Ripley frame now? Thanks, just curious.

    I just noticed that the voucher code field is not visible in all browsers, so try another browser if you can't see it.

    Hey Al, Thanks for giving me the discount. I didn't know about the code when ordering, and didn't realize you just made the Ripley skins.

    I used your skins on my Mojo SL and they have been holding up well. The Ripley version looks much easier to apply and has more coverage. Hope I will receive the kit in 10 days as my small size order is scheduled for delivery in 10 days. Thanks.

    Anyone had non-drive side crank clearance issue with Q156 XX1 crankset? Where could I find spacers for non drive side GXP BB92 type crank/BB? My online search has not led me to anything close.

    I had to use a spacer that was intended for drive-side, otherwise non-drive XX1 crank would touch chainstay. I did put frameskin on, but it would add at most 1mm to chainstay.

    BB is EnduroForkSeals.com press-in type GXP BB92. XX1 crankset is Q156, and Ripley size is small.

    Drive side spacers work OK, but they are a bit larger and don't center perfectly.

    Super happy Ripley owner here. I've been on a MOJO since '08 and loved the Ibis Bicycle Company so much I wanted to stay with them but needed a stronger bike to handle my +200 lbs. but still light enough to race XC endurance events. Wow! What a bike! Mine is a stock XT build with the Lev dropper post(f**king love it!) and the sweet, sweet 34/140mm Fox fork, right around 27 lbs. I was in a mountain 24 HR race this weekend and it was stellar. So rigid, so plush, so confidence inspiring.....I'm glad I lived long enough to be able to ride such a technological marvel.
    PS. I don't own shares in the Ibis Bicycle Company......but wish I did.

    If anyone is wanting a size XL frameskin kit let me know. I ordered one and decided to get a SB95c instead.

    Cool-blue Rhythm It was worth the wait

    Well I had a few dramas getting my Ripley, but it finally arrived yesterday and I picked it up today. Here is the build:

    Color:........Black / Green trim
    Size:.........Small
    Fork:........120mm 32 Fox Float CTD Adjust Factory Series with Kashima Coat (Stock with Green trim)
    Shock:......Fox RP23 with Kashima Coating (Stock)
    Wheelset:..Easton EC90XC
    Headset:....Cane Creek
    Handlebar: Ibis Lo-Fi Carbon bar
    Stem:........Ibis 3D Forged 31.8 Bar/28.6 Steerer 7075
    Brakes:......Ibis 3D Forged 31.8 Bar/28.6 Steerer 7075
    Grips:........SRAM
    Shifter:.....SRAM XX1 Grip Shift
    Front Der:..None
    Rear Der:...SRAM XX1
    Crank:.......SRAM XX1 30T
    Cassette:..SRAM XX1 10-42
    Chain:.......SRAM XX1
    Seatpost:..Ibis 31.6 x 350 L, 7075
    Saddle:..... Specialized Henge
    Tires:........Maxxis Ignitor 2.1 / Crossmark 2.1
    Pedals:.....Crank Brothers Candy
    Weight:.....11.0kg including pedals, bottle cage and Garmin Edge 800

    Looks great and a quick ride around the block shows that it is much more nimbler and responsive then current ride, the Niner Jet 9 RDO.

    Looking forward to hitting the single track on the weekend.

    Pictures? I pick up my small ripley in 2 days, Havnt decided on a fork yet. Would like to see what a small frame looks like with the 32 120mm fox fork. Having trouble deciding on 120mm or 140mm fork.

    Turns out this issue is discussed in another thread:
    Anybody has crank clearance issues with the Ripley?
