Anyone have a chance to ride one of these bad boys yet?

I have not ridden one as my LBS said it rides close enough to the Ripmo they probably won’t add it to the demo fleet. But, I have vigorously molested the ones on display.
Very slick bike, internal routing is very nicely done. Finish on the raw looks great, it does have a clear coat over the metal, some people seem surprised by that for some reason.
The orange/red savanah or whatever it is also looks fantastic.
Frame, as said in about every review looks extremely stout. Which is probably where the weight penalty come from, bike did feel SLIGHTLY heavy, but nothing alarming. 2.5-3lb heavier than a Ripmo.

If my LBS had a NX build in stock I would have walked out with it, but they are only stocking GX at the moment. I am torn between waiting for a Jadx version, which I don’t think are available yet, or just ordering a Jade x at a later point.

Definitely want one with the coil. I think that’s what will make the biggest difference between the ripmo and ripmo af. Hopefully this will be my next bike!

So, anyone know if I can swap a link from this frame to my carbon ripmo to get coil?

FYI

I asked cascade components if they would make a link for the ripmo for coil this is their reply:


Thanks for the suggestion! We have a few other Santa Cruz links on our plate at the moment, but after that we could potentially branch out to other brands/suspension layouts. If there's enough interest it's definitely possible that we could look into the Ripmo.


Regards,

So if anyone else wants one, please let Cascade Components know!

Almost certainly not. The suspension joins the frame at lower point on the af models. Larger water bottle wont fit for this reason

Will post a pic up today after my new wheels get here. Initial impressions: she’s not the lightest but feels really stout and solid, rear tire buzzes the seat at bottom out for my height (5’9”) so had to push it forward some to compensate, rear shock is amazingly smooth, DVO fork proves why I should only run them over anything else as always.

Over all the bike is kick ass and I really can’t wait to see how it feels on a trail in comparison to just around my college campus

Just out of curiosity, what size are you on, M or L?

Thanks
