Stephen's Ibis Ripley
The Ibis Ripley has been a quiet achiever for us but take a look at the details of this bike and it's no surprise many riders are choosing this as their perfect Brisbane trail bike. 120mm of suspension out back and 130mm up front with a 66.5 degree head angle the Ripley matches up well to the Brisbane MTB terrain. Nimble and light on the climbs with that balance of agility and stability on the descents. With such a solid base for a build, we get creating...
This particular bike is built with Fox Factory series suspension front to back and even on top with the Fox 'Transfer' dropper post. The Fox 34 Factory series step-cast fork gives riders a fork that is not only stiff but light weight thanks to it's unique, hollowed out / open lowers design. The Fit4 adjustment of the fork matches up perfectly with the rear shock for a balanced ride.
The Shimano XT 12 speed drivetrain has become increasingly popular with riders. That signature Shimano XT performance in a 12 speed setup at a competitive price point, it's a compelling option. The four piston XT m8120 brakes complete the groupset with dependable and sharp power delivered through an adjustable and comfortable lever.
This Ibis Ripley is finished off with a Race Face cockpit, wide Ibis 35mm internal wheelset and premium Maxxis rubber to complete one stellar build. We hope you're out there getting some good time in on this unreal bike already Stephen!
