Saw the the Ibis Ripmo af NX for R58k at my lbs I am very close to buying but would like to get a hear some diffrent options before I pull the trigger.

 

Thank you

I broke my hd3's rear triangle last year and was looking at getting the Ripmo AF as a replacement. Lots of bike for a reasonable amount. Insurance ended up replacing my rear triangle, else i would have bought the Ripmo AF.

Speak to William or the guys at Revolution about a demo bike. Once you go DW link, you will probably never go back

Yes, yes, yes. 1,000 times yes. Widely praised in the reviews, would buy. Excellent price, too. Okay, the nx isn’t exactly stellar, but it’s a darn good entry into the ibis fam.

I cannot comment on the Ripmo. 

 

But also at least consider the new alu Pyga Hyrax/Slakline. The new alu bikes with GX spec is <R70k if I remember correctly. With RS suspension for which there is no lack of support. 

 

They have plenty demo bikes in Gauteng, not sure about Cape.

@tinmug Sram NX

 

Thanks just looking for some reassurance.

 

Any other enduro bike recommendations.

Thanks for confirming. Phew, that’s a lot of money for NX (no doubts at all that Ibis makes first-class bikes).

 

Pyga. :-D

A big chunk of that money sits with the DVO suspension, from what i have read everyone reckons it rides better than the carbon ripmo. Groupset is in theory the cheapest thing to replace as you can do it bit by bit. Or take off the sram and put a decent groupset on.
