    Ibis Ripley… yes please 🙂

    congrats on the tool of the month award, Sim

    Is it just me or the cable routing into the headtube really ugly?

    Not just you, it looks a bit unfinished.

    Big fan of the Mattock, great for digging out bramble root clusters……

    Loving the Ripley, ace paint job. Not keen on the entry points of the cables either.

    Off to book an eye test. These big wheels look smaller at the back than at the front.

    Is it me or does it look a bit “Yeti SB66” ish but with cable routing that wasnt thought out?

    It’s good to have a mattock. The mattock, McLeod and shovel are the holy trinity of trailfairy tools.

    95 quid for a pair of shorts, crikey!

    Can’t decide whether the Ripley is just dull/boring or ugly…

    Am I the only person in the uk still riding a 26 inch bike?
    I am so last century.

    Singletrack seems to have a hard on for Ibis, I don’t see the point?
