    PSA: Ibis bikes 40+% off Competitive Cyclist

    Holy shit. Kinda wish I hadn’t bought my Ripmo AF past month. Is Ibis going out of business or something?

    Ripmo carbon XT $4000: https://www.competitivecyclist.com/i...-mountain-bike

    Same bike but with carbon wheelset/I9 hubs $4700: https://www.competitivecyclist.com/i...-mountain-bike

    Ripley carbon with GX $3200: https://www.competitivecyclist.com/i...-mountain-bike

    Holy shit. Sold.out now but Carbon Ripley for the same price as the Ripley AF SLX I just bought and w a Factory 34 front fork . .wow. Glad its sold out or I'd cry. I feel like there is going to be a glut of bikes soon and prices will fall to pre pandemic. We will see

    For sure. I'd gone back and forth on the Ripmo AF SLX which was on sale for $3200, so this sounded great. I probably would have gotten the carbon SLX, but they didn't have it in XL.

    ... and I just impulse-bought an XL carbon Ripmo frame to compliment all the fancy bits I've been throwing on the metal version I bought in February.

    Thanks for the PSA! That shit just saved me two grand.

    fnka. Beers on me, Falcon

    Booo, I had the last Medium SLX in my cart and hit buy, and somebody snagged it right before me. Then the XT sold out as I transitioned to that.

    One indicator of hitting a price bottom is when people are buying completes to part out again, as they are being blown out.

    Wow, thanks for sharing. I would have gotten a ripley if they had any left in stock. They have a few mojos at crazy good prices too if you can live with smaller wheels

    Pretty wide spread sale...20% off all full priced items. Gotta be some exclusions, but this isn't Jenson.

    Fuuuuck. I was literally looking at these bikes on their site earlier today and they were full price, maybe one build was 15% off.

    an slx or xt carbon ripmo is my dream bike (and I cracked my frame on my current FS bike yesterday…)

    Ibis Facebook page is pretty sure this was a pricing error. Makes sense as today the Ripmo is back to full price with 1 available.

    Hope they honor the mistake and ship out for you guys!

    Acquaintance of mine is a big Ibis dealer and did a IG story sneak preview of the new one, looks like it's going to use the new SRAM universal hanger, have a new integrated rubber chainstay guard, and was a nice looking blue-ish grey carbon Ripmo I think.. Pretty good marketing ploy on his part.

    And...it was an error. A Backcountry gearhead just called and told me that they won't honor the price. They did offer 25% off, which isn't terrible, if the XT/Factory build isn't available, I'd probably just get something less blingy in the $3-4000 range.

    Yeah... honestly I could afford the $5500 if I felt like it. It's a good price in the current market for what you get. I just don't feel like it after believing they were going to give me it for $4000.

    PSA: Ibis bikes 40+% off Competitive Cyclist

    If anyone had a Ripmo L they’re gonna throw back, hmu. -25% would probably be worth it for me.

    Can they not honor the price? Its not like they lose money on the deal, they just dont make any. 40% off is not an unheard of discount and is not large enough to be obviously in error.
