What if we took everybody’s favorite bike and made it a little slacker and little longer? Hell, what if we made it more progressive and coil compatible? And that’s exactly what we did for the Ripmo V2. Active ingredients include: 29” wheels, berm-defying cornering tendencies, and a love for long rides.

Ripmo V2 Specific FAQs

All our manuals are available here.

Yes, but the bike is optimized around a 44 mm offset fork. The 51 mm offset fork shortens the trail (the distance between the contact patch and the steering axis), which can cause the front end to feel less stable. We prefer it with 44 mm, but the choice is yours.

You can run any clevis compatible coil shock. Brands that offer a clevis compatible coil shock include DVO, Cane Creek, EXT, Push, and Rockshox. We recommend verifying clevis compatibility with manufacturers before purchase.

No, the Ripmo cannot be run as a mullet bike. We specifically designed it around 29” wheels.

The Ripmo is designed to accommodate tires up to 2.6” wide.

The largest chainring you can use on an Ripmo is a round 34T.

The Ripmo fits 26 oz Purist water bottle on medium, large and extra large frames and a 22 oz Purist on the small when the Arundel side loader cage is used.

Yes, the max size oval chainring we recommend is a 32T. Not all oval chainrings are the same, so we recommend double checking clearance before installation.

Dropper Post Saddle Height Calculations

Do not try to insert your post deeper than these measurements. Forcing the post can result in a seat tube failure.

IMPORTANT: Before riding, check the saddle to tire clearance with the dropper post fully dropped and the air out of the shock with frame compressed to bottom out.
