Custom Ibis Ripmo V2 Build
Enjoy some photos of this custom Ibis Ripmo V2 build! The Ibis Ripmo V2 features updated geometry as well as a revised DW link suspension. This custom Ripmo V2 by BikeCo.com is highlighted with some of the very best components in MTB.
A variety of purple components by Industry Nine, Hope, Wolf Tooth as well as Chris King contrast the Ibis Star Destroyer Grey frame.
Handlebars with taller rise allow smaller stem spacer stacks. Not only does this look better but it performs better as well. Having your hands in the power position is critical to how the bike behaves in steeps and cornering.
Small highlights make a big difference! I love the purple Wolf Tooth remote. I mean, first the performance of the Wolf Tooth Remote is hard to beat – smooth, long lasting but whoa the purple looks good. It’s a royal color remember?
Hope Tech 3 brake levers provide easily adjustable reach and bite point controls. Hope produces bits in a variety of colors – design your custom Hope’s with BikeCo’s Interactive Brake Builder.
More custom highlights on the Hope Tech E4 brakes. Purple pucks bring just enough flair without overpowering color from the Industry Nine hubs.
Silver spokes on the custom Industry Nine hubs with Ibis S35 carbon rims give the bike a bit of flair front and rear.
The drivetrain on this Ibis Ripmo V2 features Cane Creek EEWings Ti Cranks, Wolf Tooth Nickel chain ring, SRAM XX1 AXS Shifter/Derailleur/Chain with an X01 cassette. The X01 cassette was installed after mounting the XX1 AXS option that didn’t provide enough visual contrast for this build. It was just a bit too much “oil slick” to balance the design.
The Industry Nine two tone stems have really grown on me. Where a complete purple stem would seem over the top the purple face plate allows just the right amount of tie in to the design.
Saving a bit of weight is the LEV Carbon seatpost and SQ lab 611 carbon rail saddle.
I couldn’t decide which of these two images I liked better. Luckily I can simply put in both…
