Ripley AF Wins!
We’re proud to announce that pinkbike has awarded the Ripley AF their award for “2021 Value Bike of The Year.” We could wax poetic about our unique combination of suspension performance (dw-link FTW), careful component selection, and geometry…..but we don’t have to. Here’s what PB had to say:
“For 2021, Ibis released the fifth-generation Ripley in aluminum and with revised geometry that makes it more capable on challenging terrain. Okay, $3,199 USD isn’t exactly a small amount of money, but you’re getting a Deore drivetrain and dw-link suspension with important bits from Fox, whereas the carbon Ripley starts at $5,099 USD with Deore and a Fox Factory fork and shock. If you want just a frame, the carbon version will set you back $3,199 USD, which is the same price as the entire aluminum bike.“
