Ibis Ripley AF Frame

The Ibis Ripley AF sports 120mm of rear wheel travel, supported by DW-Link suspension. Rolling on 29″ wheels and a frame constructed from high-quality Aluminum, the Ripley AF is built to get down. Utilizing SRAM’s UDH system and a 52mm chainline, the Ripley AF is fully compatible with SRAM’s new Transmission ecosystem.

Speaking of going downhill, the AF variant of the renowned Ripley offers slightly more aggressive geometry with 1.0 degree slacker head-angle, making it more suited to higher trail speeds and steeper terrain.

Ripley AF Headset Details

The Ibis Ripley AF comes equipped with a press-fit, zero-stack headset, featuring a ZS44 upper and ZS56 lower.

It’s quite common for many home builders to have the headset installed prior to receiving the frame.

Most riders are looking for a “one and done” headset. As such, investing in a high-quality headset is a wise choice. We recommend either the Cane Creek 110 or Chris King headsets. With proper maintenance and servicing, these headsets should endure the lifetime of your Ripley AF frame.

Now, you might be wondering if you can use an Angleset headset. In truth, there are very few situations where we would recommend an Angleset for the Ripley AF. If you’re seeking a slacker and more aggressive setup, the better approach is to increase the fork travel to 140mm. This maintains the steer tube concentricity within the carbon fiber headset, preserving its original design. Simultaneously, it slackens the headtube angle and slightly raises the bottom bracket – both advantageous for tackling more substantial and challenging terrain. Counterintuitively, using a 130mm fork to achieve a slacker headtube can actually lower the bottom bracket, which contradicts the benefits of a slacker headtube.

Ibis Ripley AF Frame suspension details
Ripley AF Suspension Spec
Shock FOX Performance DPS, 190x45mm. Included with Frame.
Fork Stock spec 130mm. 140mm option.

Featuring the FOX Factory DPS shock, the Ripley AF is dialed in for the down-country and trail rider.

For those seeking a slightly more robust setup, some riders may explore the FOX Float X. This option endows the Ripley AF with a more aggressive trail and light enduro capability. However, it’s worth noting that the availability of the 190×45 Float X from FOX can impact build timelines, so plan accordingly.

Ripley AF Suspension Upgrade

Wish the Ripley AF was a bit slacker? Or had a touch higher bottom bracket? These adjustments can significantly influence how the Ripley AF responds to changes in direction and its comfort level when tackling more substantial terrain. Riders interested in these modifications should definitely reach out to us to discuss the 140mm fork option.

In addition to providing a bit more travel, the extended fork length alters the axle-to-crown measurement, resulting in several geometry changes. These include a slightly slacker headtube angle, an increased trail measurement, and a taller bottom bracket height.

Feel free to chat with our team about adding a fork to your Ripley AF frame order, ensuring you get it precisely configured to meet your preferences right out of the box.

The Ibis Ripley AF Frame utilizes a threaded 73mm BSA bottom bracket. Depending on your crank selection there are a variety of bottom brackets available.

Many home-builders have us install the bottom bracket prior to shipping the frame.

Chris King is a popular bottom bracket for Ibis bikes. A range of adapters allows both SRAM and Shimano specs to be used.

Ibis Ripley AF Chainline

The Ripley AF uses the standard, “Boost,” chainline measuring 52mm. Compatible with most standard boost labelled cranks from the past few years. This requires a 168mm Q Factor crankset.
