- Rental Bike Damage Protection: $4.00 per day per bike
You have the option to accept or decline our damage protection plan.
Plan covers up to $500 of any damage to shifter, derailleur, brake levers and calipers, dropper lever and post, broken chain, incidental frame scratches, dented or warped rim, saddle.
Does not cover theft or loss of the bike, major frame damage, ie cracked carbon tubes or dents/cracks in aluminum frames, fork stanchion scratches or dents.
You would be responsible for the wholesale replacement of a frame and or forks in case of major damage.
Does not cover any damage due to improper transport of the bikes.
Occasionally chains break due to pushing too hard on the pedals when shifting. Shift with finesse, ease up on your pedaling force when shifting and look ahead to shift before needed. Save yourself from turning your bike into a scooter.
Tires occasionally go flat, there is a spare tube and tools in the saddle bag on the bike. If you are unsure how to change a flat, we can show you before you ride.
We don’t refund money for flat tires or broken chains.

2019 IBIS Ripmo Carbon
”The long awaited long travel 29er”
$97 Single Day
Small, Medium, Large
It is a good idea to reserve your Ripmo ride online – we only have one of each size.
The Ripmo is a bike we’ve been waiting for for a while now. Think of it as a mashup of the Ripley’s balance and speed, coupled with the Mojo HD4’s capabilities when things get hairy.
With a sub six pound frame and 145mm of efficient dw-link rear wheel travel (160mm front), this is the most versatile bike Ibis has ever built.
The Ripmo also marks a dramatic shift in Ibis’ approach to geometry. The reach is nearly an inch longer than the EWS Team winning HD4, 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. Set up with Shimano 1x XT components and their wide Alumimum wheels.
Size – Small (5’0” – 5’5”), Medium (5’4 – 5’9”), Large (5’9″-6’2″)
2019 Ibis Ripley gen 4 $97 single day.
Small only (5’0 – 5’5”)
The new Ripley Gen 4 is a snappy, flickable, playful, fast, lightweight, and versatile 29” trail bike. Longer a bit slacker and a much steeper seat tube makes an already great riding trail bike into an even more versatile fun machine!
Its combination of modern geometry, a stiff lightweight carbon chassis, and 120mm of ultra efficient dw-link travel, means it’s equally happy popping off bonus lines as it is crushing all day epics.
