IBIS Bikes

IBIS BikesIBIS was founded way back in 1981 by Scot Nicol (He is also known as Chuck IBIS and that’s a whole other story…). You can read a note from Scot/Chuck below. There are four partners in IBIS Cycles, Scot, Hans Heim, Tom Morgan and Roxy Lo, or five partners if you count both Scot and Chuck.

IBIS, has been singing the praises of carbon fiber bikes for a long time. They made their first carbon fiber bikes back in 1989. IBIS founder Scot Nicol wrote about carbon in a widely read series of articles on bicycle metallurgy that appeared in VeloNews in the early 90’s. Technology has come a long way since then and IBIS is embracing the latest that carbon technology has to offer.

All IBIS Bikes and frames are engineered around the philosophy that you can design a lightweight bike that's forgiving, stiff, responsive, dependable and most of all...... sexy!  All IBIS frames are built with state of the art carbon fiber.  Why does IBIS choose carbon fiber for all of their bicycle frames yo might ask?  Well the answer is rather simple.  For years, bicycle manufacturers have been trying to create laterally stiff and responsive frames from alloys and other materials, but the downside of metal based stiff frames has always been the transferer / amplification of road and trail vibration through the frame into the rider.  For years, if you wanted a frame with damped vibration, you had to give up stiffness and your bicycles responsiveness would suffer.

This is where carbon fiber comes into play, and exactly why IBIS Bikes has make carbon fiber the choice material for each & every one of their bicycle frames.  Carbon fiber has a very unique characteristic in that it's not only one of the stiffest materials on earth, but it's ability to dampen road and trail vibration is absolutely unseen by any other material around.  This means that every IBIS bicycle is incredibly lightweight, stiff, responsive and does a phenomenal job of absorbing vibration, which means you as the rider are comfortably in complete control of IBIS bicycle every moment that you're riding!  Make your next bicycle purchase an IBIS...... you won't be disappointed!

The Ripmo AF (Aluminum Frame) brings the award-winning performance of the carbon Ripmo to a wider, rowdier audience. It’s everything we love from the carbon Ripmo, plus a few tweaks. Over our long tenure from moun­tain biking’s awk­ward ado­les­cence to its cur­rent any­thing-shred­dy era, we’ve exper­i­ment­ed with steel, alu­minum and tita­ni­um?—?remem­ber the Bow-Ti, the first super­bike? We remem­ber the met­al times too, and it feels good to offer a pre­mi­um ride expe­ri­ence to our broad­en­ing fam­i­ly of rid­ers, cour­tesy of durable, afford­able alu­minum alloy. With a steep, 76-degree seat tube angle and a rangy but not stratos­pher­ic reach, the Rip­mo AF places rid­ers cen­tral­ly and upright over the bot­tom brack­et. It makes for an effi­cient posi­tion that can go the long haul with­out plac­ing too much weight on its slack, 64.9-degree head­tube angle. A 44mm reduced-off­set fork is more sure­foot­ed on steep descents and stead­ies high speeds. Bet­ter up, bet­ter down.

What if we took everybody's favorite bike and made it a little slacker and little longer? Hell, what if we made it more progressive and coil compatible? And that's exactly what we did for the Ripmo V2S. Active ingredients include: 29" wheels, berm-defying cornering tendencies, and a love for long rides. GEOMETRY The Rip­mo and Rip­mo AF share the same steep, 76-degree seat tube angle and a rangy but not stratos­pher­ic reach, which places rid­ers cen­tral­ly over the ped­als. It makes for an effi­cient posi­tion that can go the long haul. The slack 64.9 head­tube angle and 44mm reduced-off set fork doesn't wan­der while climb­ing, and doesn't hold you back descend­ing. It works - all day up, all day down, all day in between. REVISED SWINGARM The Rip­mo V2S fea­tures a new UDH dérailleur for max­i­mum future com­pat­i­bil­i­ty and moves to a 55mm chain line. The wider chain line allows for a stiffer chainstay. TRACTION TUNE Our cus­tom tuned front and rear sus­pen­sion fea­ture extra light high-speed com­pres­sion and rebound damp­ing to deliv­er unpar­al­leled trac­tion. This allows the wheels to flut­ter through ter­rain like a tro­phy truck storm­ing through a set of whoops. COIL COMPATIBLE The Rip­mo V2S is com­pat­i­ble with both coil and air shocks due to a more pro­gres­sive lever­age rate. On the trail, it gives the sus­pen­sion a sup­ple feel through­out the entire­ty of the stroke, enhanc­ing trac­tion no mat­ter how deep you dig. DROPPER POST CLEARANCE Mo' drop­per, mo' bet­ter. On small frames, you can run 125 - 150mm, pend­ing your pref­er­ence and inseam length. Our short­er seat-tube lengths and low stan­dovers allow you to choose your size based on your reach preference. TIRE CLEARANCE You can run over­built, chunky tires; you can run light, big vol­ume fast tires, but what­ev­er you run, know that you're not lim­it­ed by width. BUSHINGS Tired of hit­ting "pur­chase" on anoth­er set of bear­ings each sea­son? So were we. That's why we use bush­ings where they make sense, and bear­ings where they don't. The IGUS bush­ings in our low­er link are lighter, stiffer, and vir­tu­al­ly main­te­nance free. We believe so strong­ly in them, we back them with a free life­time replacement. LIGHTWEIGHT PREMIUM CARBON FOR EVERYONE All our bikes are built from the high­est grade mate­ri­als and opti­mized for the best strength, weight, stiff­ness, and ride per­for­mance - no mat­ter how much you spend. The Rip­mo weighs a svelte 6.25 lbs with a DPX2 shock and com­plete builds start at 28 lbs. INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING Bikes that look pret­ty on the out­side, should look pret­ty on the inside. We use car­bon fiber tubes mold­ed with­in each frame. Push the cable in, watch it pop out, a beau­ti­ful moment indeed. REMOVABLE ISCG MOUNT So, you're too fast for nar­row-wide chain reten­tion on its own? Chal­lenge accept­ed. Our remov­able ISCG tabs allow shred­ders to bolt on a chain guide, while the rest of us can shave grams. PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT A thick rub­ber down­tube pro­tec­tor deflects debris, while our chain­stay pro­tec­tor fea­tures thick raised sec­tions to help damp­en chain slap noise. And our sim­ple-yet-ele­gant link­age pro­tec­tors stop mud and rocks thrown by the tire, keep­ing your beau­ti­ful bike beautiful. - Image is representational and may differ from build spec
