    The Ripley is a Shredder

    I shredded my previous segments riding the Ripley, the bike flies and is so fun. It felt fast, but I had no idea, I was hoping for top 5 on the segments. I may be a believer in that big wheel crap

    Awesome bike but is your rear caliper too high, looks like your pads are only getting half the braking surface
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    I think so too. I have the same rotor with Magura Marta brake on my Mojo SL. The wear mark should be double the width shown in the photo.

    Awesome build. Kudos to your many KOMs on one ride. Truely impressive.

    That's the secret to faster riding, half the brake power to slow you down!

    The brakes are fine, thanks guys. I figured it out before I rode it, good eyes though. I had hoped no one would notice.

    25lbs/10,8kg, that is really insanely light with a dropper post and pedals, even for an X01!

    Are those carbon rims?

    Yes, they are the EC90 wheels. They sure pedal light!

    what tires you running Miles? I like the look of those.. a little more aggressive than the small block eights but not too aggressive..

    Nice ride. The bike and the KOMs. How tall are you and what size frame is that?
