We recently sat down at the computer to nut out some hard hitting questions to put to our two Hyperformance Young Gun downhill hot shots. Both Finn and Tuhoto are soon to be heading overseas to test themselves against the worlds best juniors in the UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup. First up on the interview list is Finn Hawkesby-Brown.
Gravel, CX and bike pack adventuring.
Backroad gravel bashing and single track exploring, roots and rock hopping, tarseal sprinting, curb jumping, queue jumping, hill climb attacking, pothole and rainstorm dodging, pub commuting, zombie apocalypse escaping… did we miss anything the new Stigmata can do?
The new Ripley is here! And it's still the same snappy, flickable, playful, fast, lightweight, and versatile 29" trail bike it's always been, except it's better.
Taking everything learned from the Ripmo, Ibis updated the Ripley with cutting edge geometry, a stiff light carbon fiber chassis, and 120mm of ultra efficient dw-link travel - which means it's equally happy popping off bonus lines as it is crushing all day epics.
