Looks sick man! How would you compare the Ripmo AF to your Meta TR? I just rode my sons new Meta TR the other day and put my thoughts on on my instagram @havenoutdoors .

Thank you! Lots of subtle differences but the biggest thing I noticed is how the dw link remains more active in situations where the linkage-driven single pivot of the Meta tends to lock up a bit--I first felt it when putting power down on techy climbs, but it became really evident when leaning the bike through bombed-out, rutty corners--the bike just feels more composed and less choppy. That said, I can't really say how much of this is down to the coil, as this is my first coil and first dw bike.

Overall the Ibis feels more lively and rides a bit lighter than the Meta. I have noticed a little more flex in the AF, but it's worth the tradeoff.
