Ripmo X01 Eagle 942 Complete Mountain Bike by Ibis
It's no secret that 29-inch wheels are making appearances at the highest levels of enduro and downhill racing, due to these bigger wheels holding lines at higher speeds and steamrolling chunky terrain with uncanny ease. Realizing this, Ibis set out to create a big-wheeled brawler to defend their 2017 EWS Championship, seeing much of the competition is now racing on 29ers. After a lengthy development and testing process, the Ripmo XO1 Eagle 942 Complete Mountain Bike was perfected to devour the steepest, gnarliest lines on technical enduro courses and your favorite mountain pass, but without inhibiting its ability to pedal back up for another grin-inducing lap. As you probably guessed from its name, the Ripmo is the mashup of the hard-charging Mojo HD4 and the lively handling Ripley. As such, the Ripmo retains the larger 29-inch wheels of the Ripley, but falls more towards the longer, slacked-out end of the spectrum inhabited by the Mojo HD4. Delving into geometry specifics, you'll find the Ripmo has a quite slack 65. 9-degree head tube angle paired with a 44-millimeter fork offset that makes it inherently more stable at high speeds. Ibis chose this custom fork offset to increase the bike's trail, which makes it a bit slower to respond to steering inputs, subsequently making it more stable at the higher speeds you'll experience while enduro racing and aggressively pummeling down steep trails. This way, Ibis was able to design the Ripmo with the stability of a bike with an even slacker head tube angle (they claim it's as stable as bikes with head tubes in the mid 64-degree arena), but without requiring a drastic increase in wheelbase figures, which would compromise its ability to get around hairpin corners and tighter sections of trail. Another trick that Ibis employs is a steeper seat tube angle of 76 degrees, which shifts your weight forward. This way, you won't feel like the bike's front end inhabits an entirely different zip code while you're climbing and co...

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.
