First Look: Ibis' Updated Mojo HD5 Has a Different Approach to Suspension
@loudv8noises: The actual speeds on our custom Fox and DVO part numbers are 40-70% faster than full open on the regularly available parts. If you want to try it, they can revalve for you when rebuilding. Also, our custom higher speed tune is for the high speed circuits that open up when the speeds are higher or there are a lot of square edges. We actually recommend keeping a fair amount of low speed damping engaged in order to keep the bike calm. From reading many people's comments, I can see that there's a misunderstanding where they think we are advocating wide open on low speed damping which is not the case. Another thing that might be helpful for people to know is that smoother tracks with big jumps probably benefit from more high speed damping which is still available on our tunes. You can dial it back in for that familiar feel and open it up for a plush feel on the rough stuff.

First Look: Ibis' Updated Mojo HD5 Has a Different Approach to Suspension
@weezyb: The interesting thing is that the *vertical travel* is the same with 153 rear and 170 front due to the rear being measured vertically and the front being measured along the fork which is at an angle. So, when you ride it and push into the travel it feels perfectly balanced. The numbers don't match but the balance is actually right.

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.

First Ride: Ibis Ripmo - Long-Travel 29er
@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.

First Ride: Ibis Ripmo - Long-Travel 29er
@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.
