Ibis Ripmo Review day today out at Salt Cycles. This cycle is honestly legendary. When I rode the Mojo 3 last year I thought, wow, if I should only have that in a 29er, with a tiny more travel. There is the ripley which is a 29", but that doesn't have enough travel. So when the Ripmo came out I just had to test one.
Some climbing and descending on light chunk was all that temple quarry trail should deliever. Another trails were closed and the LBS wanted to hold the cycles around for speedy demos. But it still gave us a nice feel for what this cycle was about.
This cycle didn't disappoint in most things. It climbed really well for a large Long Travel cycle. It descended like a beast. This was a fun cycle. Would I trade it for my cycle? Probably not because I like the lighter feel of the Mid Travel cycle I am on. Not that this cycle is massive, watch the end where we weigh them. It just isn't as climbing efficient as I wish for an each day rider.

How tall are you? I noticed ur on a medium and was wondering how it fits??
Glad you had some sober comments on this cycle. Been trying to decide between Ripley and Ripmo and wish a cycle that can do everything - flow, miles, tech. It climbs well - for what it is, but the Ripley is idea more zippy, even NX versus a X01 carbon hoop Ripmo build. Will probably go with the Ripmo ST being announced next week though. Nice videos!
Purchased mine just a bit ago, this thing ROCKS, BEST I have ever ridden hands down. If you haven’t done a demo yet do it, climbs like a mountain goat,very liberating! Ibis without a doubt !!!! I personally will never look beyond their cycles again, couldn’t be happier and would buy again in a blink!
Back wheel keeps scraping my nuts. Im selling mine. All the 29er cycles do this. The rear wheel is too close to the saddle.
Could I buy a Santa Cruz Hightower/Hightower LT or an Ibis Ripmo?
This RipMo is calling my name 🤤
Play rode a Ripmo and HD4 a several weeks ago. Absolutely loved the HD4. Just glided down Vertigo Trail. Very, very fun cycle. Want I should afford one. If I should, I almost would have gone down to the cycle market and purchased one that day.
What is your mid-travel cycle of choice?
can you deliever height and inseam numbers of ridchard riding the balcke size Huge? that would be useful. thanks!
Sweet video! Is this temple quarry?
