    Carbon 29

    I really like certain design aspects of the new Ibis Ripley. Haven't ridden one yet, and probably won't anytime soon due to the lack of dealers in my area, so these are just my musings.

    1)The compact DW link, inside the frame eccentrics seem to have some advantages...maybe.

    2) An XC raceable 120mm travel 29er. I like the option on the front end at least.

    3) 51mm offset fork(G2)for a better "trail" number, thus better handling. Having ridden several bikes with this feature, and comparing it to my Sultan...I give the edge to G2. It gives you 26er quickness with all the advantages of the 29er.

    I'm super excited to see what Dave brings to the party, as he seems to be able to put it all together better than most.

    Not for me either,
    One steel 29'er is good enough for me ;-)

    Judging by the Rotor chainrings and the medium size, I'm guessing that is DT's bike. Looks good! Hopefully, they'll have some of those to ride at Sea Otter.

    Very nice Deano.

    I like the look of 'non' elevated chain stay. This is officially the sexist Turner ever!

    Also - what's with that double levered front+rear brake??

    David told folks at the Vision Quest yesterday the bike will be rolled out at Sea Otter. By the way Davis placed 9th in the Counting Coup...no bad. Tinker won the Vision Quest race.

    +1 on that.

    I really like the 'straight tube' look that Turner has achieved with this design. Very unique, very Turner.

    +1 on that! It still looks very Turner. I'm glad DT didn't go all swoopy with the lines like other carbon frames.


    I wonder if the carbon is just for the 29ers. Hmmmm.

    I agree. Especially from the driveside...it looks like a bike should (double diamond frame) not some melted 'organic' mess.

    Top work DT and the crew! Looking forward to the first ride reports coming through...
