    Ripley LS or 5010 v2

    Cross posting on sc and south east forums for advice. Hoping there's enough real world experience on both as I don't have demo available for Ripley

    Been on 29ers for the past 4-5 years. Currently have one do it all bike, carbon highball v2 size large with a Pike @120. Ride in Georgia, NC and TN and I really enjoy climbing and going as fast as I can everywhere. The HB is a great bike and am looking to add a FS to smooth out the descents a bit (need justification for a 2nd bike &#128527

    Never ridden DW, my Local shop which r dear friends is my SC dealer and they treat me right. To the point that if i go Ripley i'll take it to them to kit out and build. Gotta say, I've wanted a Ripley since they started teasing V1

    There's a new review on here from Dillon Caldwell for the 5010 that sounds exactly what I'm looking for. A bike that's a 60/40 bias favoring xc but that can handle chunky trails better than my beefy Hard tail which is an Awesome bike

    Super rambling but am bottom line looking for perspective from folks that have ridden both beyond parking lot tests. Don't think I could go wrong with either and my shop just got their med. 5010 v2 demo in but any real world experience comparing the 2 is greatly appreciated. Thanks if u made it all the way through 👍

    Where are you located?

    There is an Ibis dealer in Roswell, GA and I _THINK_ they have a Ripley for demo. I know they have two Mojo HD3s, med and large. I'll find out, I've been wanting to try one, too
