  • Dropper Post Bike Yoke Revive

This is the 3rd generation of the jack-of-all-trades Ripley LS, featuring an all new frame with increased stiffness and clearance for the new generation of 29" tires. The proven dual eccentric dw-link suspension keeps the tires in touch with the ground so your power is applied efficiently. The new swingarm accommodates the 2X Shimano side swing front derailleurs including Di2 (and of course 1X). The front derailleur mount doubles as a nice upper chain guide mount. The new crop of 2.6” tires when paired with their 35mm internal width rims deliver elbow-dragging traction. You can run these high volume monsters at low pressures, delivering incredible traction and stability. The dw-link suspension design is universally acclaimed as one of the best bicycle suspension systems. Ibis uses it because it’s the best they've ridden. The Ripley LS uses the EWS World Championship winning V5 dw-link. The dw-link gives the suspension a wide flat platform across the pedaling range for maximum efficiency and bump compliance. Simply put, it tracks the ground without sapping your energy. If it has any shortcomings, they've yet to find them. The suspension operates via innovative dual-eccentric links. Instead of using external linkages like Ibis does on their longer travel bikes, they were able to construct the Ripley with two small eccentrics, hidden inside the seat tube, which act as the suspension linkages. The bearings are located inside the seat tube, where they are shielded from wheel spray and contamination. The look is very clean, as everything is hidden inside the frame. The eccentrics were a huge engineering challenge that resulted in many nice benefits.
