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!
