Yes, you read that right- this size small Ibis Ripley LS (front triangle) V3 size small was made by hand in Ibis’ Santa Cruz, CA, in-house carbon production facility. Ibis never made a ton of these frames, but they are significantly stiffer and lighter than Ibis’ made in Asia counterparts. The finish is a raw clear coat over carbon, which has a matte black look to it. The swingarm is made in Asia. This was my wife’s bike, and she primarily used it for light trail riding. Bike is stock, with the exception of the seatpost. This post was the best solution I could find for the bike back in late 2018. There may be a deeper drop post available now, as my Rainier 2.0 has a ton of adjustment and isn’t too long, but wifey wants to move on to a longer travel bike so I’m not going to change anything on this bike. FYI, the return speed of this particular post has always been fairly slow since day 1, but has never had any problems. Ibis Ripley LS, size small, made in summer 2018 in Santa Cruz, CA 2019 Fox Float DPS shock, factory level kashima coated, 3pos-Adj, Evol SV, Ibis, Ripley, 7.25, 1.75, 0.2 Spacer, 2019 Fox Factory series Float 34 130mm Fit 4 fork,, 3Pos-Adj, 15QRx110, 1.5 T, 51mm Rake Cane Creek 40 series headset Thomson 50mm stem Ibis carbon lofi flat bars cut down to 730mm width Ibis Lizard Skins lock on grips Shimano XT M8000 1x11 groupset: XT M8000 170mm cranks 30t chainring XT M8000 brakes 180 front/160 rear Ice Tech rotors XT M8000 Long cage derailleur PNW Cascade seatpost, internally shimmed for 80mm drop, external cable routing. At 5’3”, this was the longest drop post we could find that would fit this frame. However, I believe there are more options today for a longer drop. WTB Deva saddle Ibis 938 alloy wheels Schwalbe 2.6 Hans Dampf front tire (stock tire!) Schwalbe 2.6 Nobby Nic rear tire (stock tire!) We’ve kept the bike well lubed and clean, but haven’t ridden it enough to even need to put on a replacement set of tires. Literally all the wear parts are still stock, and have plenty more life left!

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Mountain Bike Clothing - Part 1
Man, small world... I feel like that's Cody Phillips' old DARE fanny pack. Is it? I coulda sworn he was at the Oregon Enduro Series events that Colin was shooting, and there can't be many of the DARE packs floating around!!! And who in the heck remembers stuff like that? I must be weird.

Bike Check & Interview: Evan Turpen's High Pivot Steel Beauty
Dude, Evan, your bike looks incredible! Forget the coolness of the steel tubing, just the concept of the high single pivot alone, along with that well thought out linkage, is so good! Congrats on making your vision a reality! Hope to see you find a way to produce more of these soon- and in whatever material you determine is best! I'm not a steel hater, I just don't want to have blinders to the fact that the design of this bike is extra special-not just the material! Well done!

Hi guys, I need to finish paying off some medical bills so I've got my trusty Ripley V4 for sale. I received this frame in July 2019 and couldn't ride it until August due to injury. I only rode this bike about a dozen times, as I ended up on my Ripmo AF most of the time. Frame is in really good shape, but it's been ridden. Some scratches inside the rear triangle, as seen in the photos, and a few scratches on the outside of the swingarm. Rear shock is an aftermarket Fox Factory model that's more progressive and slightly firmer in tune than the stock Ibis shock. I MUCH preferred this shock over the stock Ibis shock. Includes derailleur hanger, seat binder, and brand new Ibis axle. - Jeff

Review: Six Months on Structure's Wild Looking Cycleworks SCW 1
That bike is really cool. These guys put a lot of thought into that design and it looks awesome to me. Even the ID looks good, and that blue alloy prototype from a while ago looked stellar as well. Also, @mikelevy, this has gotta be my favorite review of yours to date. Excellent writing and a lot of really good analysis.
