great to here! looks amazing

my frame ive been working on for awhile is same suspension layout but uses a pinion. dont have quite as steep seat angle. i stuck with 76. ive also been worried about rear end flex. i have 1" od tube i was gonna use but decided im gonna do a billet rear end and machine the chain and seat stays out of solid alu.

That sounds great, if you have the possibility! Stoked to see, what you will come up with!

Bit bummed. 150mm OneUp sunk as far as it can go into to a Medium Ripley LS, which is plenty low..


BUT I totally could have bought a large, had a flush mounted post, and a roomier cockpit.

I already wrapped it and mounted a headset- I’d be pretty shocked if Backcountry would do a swap.

Plus, I’m only 5’ 7” which means the medium is probably just fine anyway.

Might be camera angle wizardry - but it looks to me like it'd be pretty close to tire buzzing when it's down already.

I don’t believe so, but I’d be curious to see.

DW, so the tire does move back a hair as it moves through its travel.

Nope I'm dreaming - I don't know why I thought that was a possibility, obv Ibis would have checked that.
