Ripley LS Carbon 3.0 X01 Eagle Complete Bike - 2018 by Ibis
Mountain biking roots may have been in non-conformity, but over the years, despite our greatest attempts, we've fallen guilty of setting, and following trends. While some of those trends have come and gone -- we're looking at you, three-by drivetrains, rim brakes, and 26-inch wheels, others have pushed mountain bikes further, harder, and into more capable geometries than we've ever ridden before. We're talking ever prevalent, long-low-slack kick that's taking over every bike we cross paths with on the trail. And the engineers at Ibis are no slouches when it come to keeping up to speed with the competition, which is where we land with the Ripley LS Carbon 3. 0 X01 Eagle Complete Bike. As the name designates, the Ripley LS moves to a longer and slacker profile than the previous, already-capable Ripley, allowing you to push the limits of what's possible on the trail, buzzing the back wheel of the big enduro bikes on descents, and soaring past them with lively DW-link suspension on the climb back up. Despite the new stretched out geometry, 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...

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.
