Behind the Numbers: Ibis Ripmo V2
holy sh*t my friends are about to get even more pissed on our rides now that I can (try) to explain why my AF is so better than what they're riding.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 10 - Getting Nerdy About Bike Setup
@SunsPSD: I do (huck norris) but an insert is a stop gap for a tire that's not supportive or durable enough. I run one because my rear wheel takes a beating even with a proper tire and psi. 1000g is my general sweet spot. My experience with the 2.35 martello (960g) was pretty good but definitely pushing the lightweight limit of what works for me, my terrain, and riding style. I ran it on the front for a couple months then moved it to the back. Anyway, I'll still consider this combo but also looking at the 2.6 DHR2 as a front once my e13 wears out. It's 1035g in EXO+ casing but who knows, maybe the 2.6 martello still rolls better. The 2.35 was fast on the front. And would match the 2.6 DHR2 to a 980g 2.5 Aggressor on the rear (which I already have laying around). Or i could go with the 2.6 Agarro out back once the snow comes back.

I've considered the same but 940g for the rear and 1100g for the front? Seems like a weird combination, not the tread pattern, just the weights. The Martello must be proper 2.6 and it does have tons of side knobs, maybe that adds to the weight. It's common to have a heavier (or at least equal) tire out back because of the additional weight over the rear wheel. I'd be afraid the Agarro out back would get shredded. That combo looks good though.

@Trudeez: Never mind i see you answered that in your novel above! It just seems strange that the large 'trail bike' market (where I fit) doesn't see a competitive offering from them.

@Trudeez: Yeah it's interesting, they've had some great riders flow through there but (on paper) their (trail) bikes are lagging pretty far behind. Why not invest in your bikes, else why dump money into a race program that can't pay off? That 6600 Logan is riding (according to their site) is full carbon w/ a vpp layout (no issue there) but the geo... oh my that geo. I know, such a troll geo nazi. Glad Logan's had a long career with them so far. I'm just curious what bikes they're selling.

DVO Jade X Coil (210 x 55)

$450 USD
I'm selling my almost new Jade X coil shock off my Ripmo AF. I invested in both the Jade X and Topaz for the Ripmo and have decided to keep the Topaz for the ride feel that I'm looking for. I put about 30-35 hours on this shock over the last month and it works perfectly with no knicks or scratches. It has 3 very useful compression settings including a firm AF climb setting, pretty firm mid setting, and plush AF open setting. Shock includes your choice of 500# (pictured) or 600# spring installed (both DVO lightweight steel springs). Does not include mounting hardware although the plastic igus bushings are installed in the top (reservoir end) of the shock and a metal DU bushing is installed in the other end. This shock also fits other common bikes like the most recent Jeffsy 29 and Stumpjumper EVO. I can't confirm frame clearance with a coil on the EVO, I just know lots of stumpy owners are long shocking to 55mm and using coil shocks (check the forums). FYI - DVO has progressive coils in the works and Cane Creek's customers have confirmed that their progressive springs will fit with no extra hardware. Cheers, Matt +$20 shipping lower 48
