    I’m keen to get my hands on an Ibis Ripmo. I’ll consider both the AF and V2. Are they available anywhere before next year? What’s going on Ibis?

    Huge supply problems. I’ve got one (AF) on order, 2pure told me yesterday the next UK delivery is August/September. I bloody hope mine will be in that drop(ordered 2 weeks ago).

    There’s also some confusion about what kit they’ll be coming with, I was also told that the UK spec will match what’s now on the US site (i.e. Deore replaced NX) but there are reports of some people in the US being told theirs will come with a Fox 34 Performance/DPX2 combo, which I won’t be happy with at all.

    Perhaps Ibis should reconsider throwing free bikes at “influencers” like confetti.

    Ah man, what a mess!!!

    Looks like I’m unlikely to get my hands on one before winter.

    Sad times 🙁

    There was a L and XL on eBay. One was from biketart (UK shop) and another was via a German bike shop.

    I used to subscribe to that view. Take a closer look.

    There was a guy on PinkBike asking £2800 for a MK1 frame! With a new front triangle but obviously not warranty.

    Mate sold his V2 in a few hours after he advertised it. And that was back in March when there was still some new stock.

    Even the V1s weren’t that ‘available’. Mine was quoted as a 2 month lead-time but I was lucky enough to get a cancelled order.

    Good luck anyway OP. They are amazing bikes. Worth waiting for (as are the Ripleys!)

    My Mk1 complete bike took 4 months to sort out last year when there wasn’t a problem, so I’d envisage about 6 to 8 months.

    One problem is that they come into the UK as components, so the build kits might have half missing etc.

    Great bike although sometimes I wish I’d gone for a Ripley.

    Medium and large Ripmo’s ex-demo in stock at one planet adventure, Llandegla.

    Bought my Ripley from them, pleasure to deal with.

    Yeah I noticed this. Giving BKXC a Ripmo seems like effective advertising. He’s popular and it will be used in pretty much every video. Others like Awesome MTB on the other hand, less than 10% of Brian’s subscribers but they seem to get showered with new bikes every few weeks. Not really on when there’s a shortage/long wait for real customers.
