    Cool, thanks for the info. Been on a Mayhem for the last year. Really like the bike, but some times wish the rear end was a little more compliant in the rough stuff.

    Thatís interesting. I know you have a bunch of time on the Spot Mayhem. How would you say it compares to the new Ripley/Ripmo twins?

    I have one built similarly. Super fun bike. Great climber, playful and poppy on the descents.

    Thatís interesting. I assumed since Iíve always ridden large Ibis bikes (at 5í11Ē) Iíd do the same with a Ripmo. Perhaps not.
    Id be curious for a Mayhem vs Ripmo comparison if you have the time.

    Release wonít necessarily save your ACL, but will probably save your tib/fib. There is a reason you donít hear about too many broken legs in the alpine skiing world anymore.
