Fans of the Ripley! The Ripley AF is our beloved, category-defying, short-travel, singletrack-scorching Ripley - rendered in aluminum, with more aggressive geometry. All the sizzle and pop of the carbon Ripley, now available as a complete bike at a wallet friendly, sub $3000.
MODERN GEOMETRY, PRECISE HANDLING
A trail-friendly 65.5-degree head angle and short (44mm) offset 130mm fork combined with 29” wheels makes for a super planted but still playful front end feel. A 76-degree seat angle puts your power directly to the pedals, while the short chainstays and pedal-friendly dw-link kinematics deliver that power without squandering a single watt.
DW LINK SUSPENSION
Our 15-year collaboration with Dave Weagle has yielded yet another bike with unparalleled climbing efficiency and tractability. Incredible snap and responsiveness are its trademarks, and a whole mess of plush, chunder-eating, downhill-crushing goodness gets thrown in for good measure. Wrap that together and you get the best suspension you’ll find anywhere. It’s that good.
*Please note that although you might see frames or complete bikes listed in stock with only certain options available, we regularly have most build kits, wheels, and suspension options in stock as well. If you'd like to configure something other than how you see it built on our website, please give us a call, shoot us an email, or stop into our store!*

If you are riding the bike park often or just prefer the low-friction feel of a coil you can now choose to mount a coil-sprung shock to the back of your Ripmo. This is made possible by a more progressive leverage curve that the new rear links rotate around.
Please contact us if you plan to mount a coil shock on your new Ripmo so that we can ensure whichever shock you select is compatible with the clevis mount on this frame.
