Ibis Ripmo AF frame, size large.
147mm of rear travel from a DVO Topaz T3 air shock with external rebound and 3 compression settings. I always rode the bike in the open mode as the DW Link suspension provides a great pedalling platform whilst generating great traction through the rough stuff. The shock can be tuned with clip on volume spacers in both the positive and negative chambers. At present there are 2 in the positive and one in the negative chamber, which is how the shock comes supplied from Ibis.
Frame was purchased new in February 2020 and shock was new in November 2020 (replaced under warranty). At the same time as fitting the new shock I stripped and regreased the lower linkage bushings and these and the bearings are all working with no play.
There are some cosmetic chips to the paint in places (pictured, mainly on the lower part of the downtube) however there are no dents or cracks. Most of the frame was covered in protective helitape which I have now removed. The downtube has an adhesive rubber protector from a Kona Operator, which is a great fit.
Supplied with the following spares:
Spare derailleur hanger
Removable ISCG05 mount
2 spare volume spacers for the shock
One set of lower linkage bushings
