The Ripmo AF was one of the other bikes that I rode while riding this, and these bikes are pretty much on opposite ends of the spectrum. If you like the Ripmo, this thing is going to ride a lot differently.
That's not to say you'll hate it! It was sort of a spectrum with the Ripmo being the softest , the Spetral 29 being a fair bit firmer, and then the We Are One taking things even further. I was often surprised by how well each of these bikes did the things that they maybe weren't supposed to, but there are situations where I would absolutely want one of them over the other.
