Leave it to the legendary minds at Ibis to create a trail-dominating, brilliantly efficient, 29-inch wheeled work of art. Ibis's Ripley 29 makes every trail more fun with a high-tech carbon 120mm-travel frame that includes all the goodies: dw-link suspension, super stiff eccentric links, Maxle rear thru-axle, titanium fasteners, and a wide PF92 bottom bracket. What's it all mean? This rig climbs like a race whip, slays the corners and annihilates the downhills. When you consider its weight and travel, it's fully capable of hanging with the XC crowd on climbs and the enduro guys on the descents, and it even has two water bottle mounts.
There are many benefits to an eccentric linkage system. Because the bearings are located inside the seat tube, they are shielded from wheel spray and contamination. The look is very clean, as everything is hidden inside the frame. Additionally, the eccentric system is lighter than external linkage systems.
A great benefit, particularly on the 29-inch platform is that the eccentrics let Ibis build the bike with shorter chainstays, giving more room in the tight area around the rear tire and front derailleur.
