Ibis Ripley Frame
Ibis’ 29″ trail and light enduro carbon fiber Ripley frame has gone through several iterations over the years. What we’ve ended up with is a contemporary geometry, laterally stiff and progressive DW Suspension.
120mm of travel designed to be paired with 130 or 140mm fork options allows for lighter components than the larger enduro class frames. However with Ibis’ attention to detail on top tube length, headtube angle, trail as well as DW Suspension’s personality the Ripley is no slouch even riding burlier terrain.

FOX Float Factory DPS
Air Spring & Volume Spacers
The Ibis Ripley uses a 210 x 50mm shock, spec’d with the Fox Float Factory DPS.
SAG is adjusted by PSI – typically trail riding styles gravitate to 25-30% sag. This would measure about 12.5mm for a plush setup and 15mm for a more firm setup.
Volume spacing provides fine tuning options to support the air spring.
By changing to a larger volume spacer, thus reducing the volume, you increase the air spring’s ramp rate for improved bottom out support and pop.
Conversely smaller volume spacers produces a more linear feel as the air has more volume during shock compression per mm of travel.
Do not install more or larger volume spacers than the RockShox advises. Installing more than the maximum volume spacers will result in product damage and potential for injuries, etc.
FOX FLOAT FACTORY DPS Rebound Controls
The DPS provides a rebound control with 11 clicks of adjustment.
Heavier riders will use more rebound control than lighter riders to slow the air spring’s return to neutral.
As your ground speeds increase it is common to allow your bike to rebound more quickly to prepare for the next terrain feature and avoid suspension packing from slow rebound setup.
FOX Float Factory DPS Compression Controls
The Fox Float Factory DPS shock provides two controls to help fine tune compression.
First is the blue 3 position switch which adjusts from Firm, Mid and Open. Also known as a “climb switch” the use of this is dependent on rider style, preference and terrain.
Fine tuning the low speed compression can be accomplished in the Open mode by adjusting the black dial located around the circumference of the blue 3 position switch.
3 settings are available with “1” being the most plus and “3” the most firm.

BikeCo Frame Prep
All frame, frame kit as well as complete purchases receive a thorough BikeCo Frame Prep. Riding a bike without appropriate bearing retention, torque and alignment is hard on components. As a result “loose” bikes not only make noise but will also wear prematurely. BikeCo’s expert mechanics go through each chassis ensuring that suspension, bearings, and hardware are setup for maximum performance as well as longevity. Many home builders have a full frame assembly completed by BikeCo mechanics to ensure the best setup, in brief headsets, bottom brackets, suspension, derailleur hangers, etc are gone through piece by piece.
