New whiply.

Decided to buy a new Status, seemed to suite my style of riding. the best part? In stock at the LBS.

Going from riding Knollys, this this is a lot more modern.

How does it climb compared to other am/ Enduro bikes?

Looks awesome. Spesh' makes great all around bikes--they've got the 'glide' factor, smooth rides. Those remind me a lot of Jeffsy's.

Good score! tup

Thanks! Old school bike needs old school decals Smile Geo is decidedly not old school though, running a 63° head angle on this one.

Pretty horribly up anything technical compared to my Chilcotin, but it is workable. Climbs just fine up anything smooth. Not a light bike though.

Is the weight close to an alloy Stumpy, about? My friend just put down on an alloy Stumpy, I've only test rode them. Didn't remember them feeling too heavy? Curious about how your Status would feel compared to that. Still looks like you got a great bike tup

I feel like Ripmos usually end up looking the same. Here's mine. Started out as a DVO SLX build, but I swapped in Fox suspension, TRP DHR-Evo brakes, Industry 9 1/1s laced to DT Swiss EX 511s, and an XTR shifter. Changed touchpoints, too. I tried to stay practical/reliable with everything, but went all in on brakes and suspension. And the Reserve Fillmore valves. Those things are sweet!

One of my riding buddies picked up a Ripmo a few months ago, and has been loving it.
Curious what you think about the TRP’s. I run the DHR Evo’s as well, and would be hard pressed to use anything else. Best brakes I have ever used.

Not @radicalpugilism, but I second your thoughts on the TRP's. I also have a set of DHR Evo's and they sre without a doubt my favorite set of brakes.

Absolutely love them. I don’t think I’d change at this point. The lever feel and adjustability, the modulation and power. They’re great. Doesn’t hurt that they’re the best looking!
