JEFF KENDALL-WEED BROUGHT THE NEW RIPMO ABOVE THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES AND RIDES IT WITH AN OVERLOOKING VIEW!
Take a look as Jeff Kendall-Weed rides the new bike Ripmo at the City of Angels. When you hear the word Los Angeles, I bet the city view first pops up on your mind. But some mountain bikers probably have no idea that there are singletrack in the hills above the city. On the first day, he went to Simi Valley with the team, second day at Altadena and on the last day at Chilao Region.
“The Ripmo is a bike we’ve been wanting to make 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 we’ve ever built. It also marks a dramatic shift in our approach to geometry. The end result is a bike that’s ready to rally, while still maintaining lively handling.” – Ibis (https://www.ibiscycles.com)
