Ibis Announces New S-Wheels, Collaboration with Stan's NoTubes
We know, and agree, but ended up deciding to round down to avoid using "29" which would probably be confusing, especially on the 27.5 version. We ask for the mercy of the rounding police on this one.

First Look: Ibis' Longest, Slackest, and Burliest Ripley
@PHeller: The 5.6 lb Ripley weight is including the shock. It's about 5 lbs without shock.

@MX298: Riders who are focused on steep descending generally prefer to have the front wheel further out in front of them and would choose the 51 mm offset for the longer front center. Changing between the offsets is not too big of a change, so if you like steep stuff, or you already have a fork with 51 offset, it's OK to build it that way.

@alexsin: As the seat height increases with taller riders the seat keeps moving back further and you have the weight distribution/seat angle problem you describe. What we do to get around this is measure the seat angle based on the average saddle height for each size so the weight distribution stays closer to the same throughout the size range. We use a database of all our demo rides for average saddle height and it looks like this: s 640 m 690 lg 760 XL 810 mm. We design so the seat angle is calculated to the seated position for that frame size. H

Re: 160 rotor: Supposed to be 180 rear rotors on all the bikes. If there's a 160 out there it's a mistake.

Re new geo: I agree, our intent was more to explain how we arrived at the current geo, but it ended up sounding like we thought we invented it. For sure, Transition, Pole, and others are on it and figured out the steep seat angle effect a while back. We had been running our bikes one size up with the seat slid forward and liking the way it worked. For us, combining everything - the DW-Link with piggyback shock, water bottle, new geo, big tire clearance and excellent dropper clearance is the advancement.

@mikeep: Re: lower link bushings. We felt the same way. So, we tested for 1 year of riding including a ridiculous 2016-2017 Winter season here. So far, so good. To back it up, we're offering no charge replacement for life.
