”The bike made for Tahoe”

Ripley v4

$110 Single Day
Medium, Large  only

It is a good idea to reserve your Ripley ride online – we only have one of each size. 

The Ripley V4 is a bike we’ve been waiting for for a while now. Think of it as a mashup of the Ripley’s historical balance and speed, coupled with the Ripmos capabilities when things get hairy.
With a sub six pound frame and 145mm of efficient dw-link rear wheel travel (140mm front), this is the most versatile bike Ibis has ever built.
The Ripley also matches the dramatic shift in Ibis’ approach to geometry ushered in by the Ripmo. The reach is nearly an inch longer than the Ripley V3, with clearance for a 175mm dropper, and a pedal-friendly 76° seat tube angle. The end result is a bike that’s ready to rally, while still maintaining lively handling and stellar climbing. Set up with SRAM Eagle 1x 12components and Ibis wide Alumimum wheels.
