    Ripmo V1 or Ripmo AF?

    Canít decide between a Ripmo AF for $3000 or a Carbon Ripmo V1 for $3799 on sale at my LBS...any suggestions? I plan on mostly doing trail riding in So Cal.

    i just sold my 2017 Giant Stance and am excited to upgrade and hopefully keep this bike long term.

    For trail riding, carbon V1 all the way.

    I'd snag the V1 and that's coming from someone who's ridden both and owns an AF. You can change the head angle so the only difference that matters is the less progressive rear. You could add some suppleness with a different shock and add progression with spacers. Yes, I think the V2 and AF progression is better but the V1 is still an amazing bike however, I didn't like it with the dpx2 and I'm not the only one.
