    Devinci Django Vs. Ibis Ripley (1st Gen) ?

    I think I'm posting this in the wrong area because responses might be biased!..lol.

    Anyway, to minimize bias I would appreciate hearing from people that have experience with both bikes.

    So my Ripley is in the shop, and the shop was kind enough to loan me the Django. I went on a ride and was impressed with it's climbing ability, so impressed that I would say it climbs better than the Ripley. It's lighter too. The only criticism was that I think the Ripley is more stable on descents.

    Do you guys agree with this?, Those of you who have experience with both bikes.

    Thanks

    Gen 1 Ripley geometry was twitchy and steep- Django would be a better descender

    I think both are great bikes and you'd get used to which ever one you owned.
