2018 Ibis Ripmo

reach is fine for standing and pedaling. It is the seated position that I still need to adapt too.In the past I would run a longer steerer to get the front up higher so there is not such a long drop to the bars. Now the head angles are slacker, longer steerer actually shortens the reach. This is the slackest bike I have ever owned, I have found it more comfortable with a 60mm 6 degree stem and 780mm wide bars with a 40mm rise. That way I can keep the reach but rise the front end. The steeper seat angle puts you in a better seated position but does eat into the reach. I reckon a setback post would help me. Im all torso............
At the end of the day- it is like a new pair of shoes- got to wear them in and the body needs to relate to the changes. it just takes time. The 20 year old in me would have gone for the Ripmo in blue just like yours mate.

Nice JD - I’d like to try this bike and you can try the Nicolai. Maybe Buxton in the spring.

Ibis now have some fitted bags for Ripley V4 and Ripmo:


366173


No straps required as they come with a bracket that mates to the shock mount.

Woohoo ... bring it on! My Blackburn one isn’t too bad really but strapless is sexy.

Wonder how long it will be until manufacturer just build their frames with storage integrated into the design.
Just have to figure out how to stop stuff from rattling around. Other than that, how hard could it be?

The seat bag, eternally fugly tube storage straps, waist packs and all of that could potentially go away.

Oh yeah, I thought there were only external. Nice idea.

No one will dare to make their own flavour of it or it will be Specialized's crack commando lawyers at thirty paces throwing loaded briefcases at the opposing team.
