Ripley LS Carbon 3.0 GX Eagle Complete Bike - 2018 by Ibis
Regardless of how much we'd like to deny it, the mountain bike industry can be pretty trendy. While there were times when this proved to have a negative impact with kitschy paint schemes and faulty components that looked great, but couldn't handle the trail, one trend that seems to have truly come as a blessing to us is the long-low-slack geometry that's taking over steeds left and right. And while we held a candle to the old Ibis Ripley of years past, the new Ripley LS Carbon 3. 0 GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike surges forward, keeping relevant with the times, packing in a mountain of changes that stretch the bike's capability to the aggressive, all-mountain seeker, with increased tire clearance for traction, and 120-millimeters of DW-link suspension that keeps up with the big bikes through rough and technical trail, and blows past them when its time to point things uphill. In spite those changes, this third-gen version of the Ripley retains the nimble handling that leaves you with an ear-to-ear grin on the trail but with a stiffer rear end that may leave a frown on your buddies' faces while you power away on climbs. The stiffer rear end and increased tire clearance are owed to a reconfiguration of the chassis and its dual-eccentric DW-Link suspension. The upper eccentric link is wider than before for increased stiffness when you're tracking across the rough stuff. There's a new swingarm and clevis mount as well, which is moved backwards and down to clear the 2. 6-inch tires. Despite those changes, we're happy to report that the reconfigured chassis and swingarm don't affect the praised suspension kinematics of the previous Ripley LS. This means you won't notice a difference in the pedaling efficiency or square-edge compliance from the DW-Link suspension. Other than its notable upgrades in rear-end stiffness and increased tire clearance, the Ripley LS retains the praised geometry of the last version, namely its moderately slack 67. 5-degree head tube angle p...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
