That appears to be an Ibis Ripley.

Opinion: Don't Shoot the Messenger
I don't shoot messengers. the industry is getting darker these days: The Taipei show seems to kill existing standards for the sake of selling bikes versus innovation. But we knew that when they decided to get rid of a wheel size that was winning races while being called slower at the same time. The more standards I see, the less likely I am to buy a new bike. Pressfit= more profit. Widening a hub size by 2mm= more profit. Making a wheel size bigger by 1/2" and then deciding to simultaneously to eliminate the existing size= more profit. Calling a half carbon bike a carbon bike= more profit. I see more profit instead of more bike for my money. Bikes cost 5k-10k, but I am not sure that consumers are getting their money's worth.

Trek Remedy 9.9 29 - Review
Giant makes money on their bikes AND other companies' awesome bikes. For the record, I am not a Giant rider, I just understand that they are powerhouses in the industry. Ibis Rider...

Trek Remedy 9.9 29 - Review
ABT is DW's split pivot. Trek and Dw were in a partnership to develop it together. trek broke off the agreement and then released their "own" ABT. As for Trek and Giant: Giant makes bontrager wheels in their factory in Taiwan. Furthermore Giant manufactures 60% of all mountain bike frames in the world.

Trek Remedy 9.9 29 - Review
@deeeight, Don't forget about how Trek stole/ "invented" the ABT right after they cancelled a future partnership with DW.

Canyon Strive CF Race 9.0 - Review
@halopower, I buy items off the internet that I cannot find at my local bike shop( for example my KS LEV dropper post.) I find value in bike shops in ways that don't equal dollar signs: Bike shop group rides can take a new rider turn him into a lifetime lover of the sport because of all the fun he had on his first group ride. A bike shop can let you experience the differences between products. Vs. only reading about it online. Some of the best riders and friends I know are people that work in bike shops. Their advice has never steered me wrong. The value of that is piece of mind, which in my experience cannot be measured in currency.

Canyon Strive CF Race 9.0 - Review
@halopower, I pay more to deal directly with people I know and trust. So I pay more and in my opinion I get more. That seems logical to me. As for demo'ing bikes: I demo'ed multiple bikes at local trails for complete rides before I decided on my current bike.

Canyon Strive CF Race 9.0 - Review
This is a really good bike. But how would you know what size to get? A bike like this needs to be demo'ed. How else do you figure out the long and the short TT option thing. As for me, I would much rather pay more to buy locally and keep more people locally employed who can help me locally when I need work done on my bike.
