Interesting review. Thank you. I was in a similar position a few months back. Sold my original Ripmo earlier in the year and was riding the new Hightower. Didn't care for that bike and was ready to return to Ibis. LBS here in Phoenix had both the Ripmo and the Ripley in XL. I ended up going with another Ripmo, but that new Ripley has been in my head; particularly set up with a Pike at 140 and  a better shock (DVO will build you a Topaz with the proper stroke). Some of the most fun I've had is on short travel bikes riding big chunk on South Mountain (looking at you Banshee Phantom and the new Giant Trance).
