Ripmo AF. That’s ‘Ripmo Aluminium Frame’ to you and me. Ibis have today announced a new, aluminium version of their popular Ripmo model to their stable and with complete bikes starting from $2999.99, we can all rejoice! Featuring the same dw-link rear suspension that makes the carbon-framed Ripmo pedal and ride so well, as well as having the option to spec either an air or coil shock (both courtesy of DVO Suspension), the new Ripmo AF should turn out to be a riot to ride! Here’s the information so far from Ibis themselves:
