It’s Friday! The long weekend is nearly here, so let’s get this Fresh Goods thang done and get outta here…
Chipps has just taken delivery of this Ibis Ripley to whip about on. It’s a 120mm light and nimble trail bike with BB92 and a 142mm maxle back end.
Cable runs are via internal routing with moulded carbon cable stops.
The Ripley features a Dave Weagle designed DW link with eccentric pivots and that is optimised for 29er specific performance.
