July 30, 2018

Mountain biking is an incredible sport, but what really makes it special are the communities that form when riders and trails support one another. Costa Rica is a glowing example of this.

Engineering the Most Obsessive Grand Prize

April 07, 2014

There’s only one week left to win the most obsessive gear collection in mountain biking. And since we’ve already explored the origins and inspirations of the Kitsbow apparel included in the package, it’s only fitting that we visit the centerpiece of this contest just one more time: the award-winning Ibis Ripley — a bike as obsessively designed as it was worth the wait. To learn more about the origins of the Ripley, we went straight to the source — to the Ibis headquarters, sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and a gummy bear factory in Santa Cruz, California. There, we’d meet [...]

#whyMTB Chapter 1: The Pioneer

June 05, 2013

Why do we ride? What does it mean to mountain bike? Simple questions really, but ones with a multitude of a subjective answers — easily as many as there are mountain bikers. The more we thought about this ourselves, casual discussions would turn into a late night in the office or a longer pause at the top of a local climb. If the individual exploration meant so much to us, why not ask our friends? Why not ask those who influence and inspire us to share their own stories? The “Meaning of Mountain Biking (“#whyMTB” for the sake of our [...]

Take it on Faith testing the Ripley 29er Mountain Bike

March 25, 2013

Like an avalanche, it happened slowly — imperceptibly at first. Then it all happened so fast. One day (like many before it), the Ibis Ripley 29er Mountain bike lay dormant, quietly being teased on the California company’s home page. But the next, it’d suddenly appeared in the flesh on some of Brian Lopes’ favorite trails and then at Grand Central Station in a flurry of social media activity. As a California company ourselves, we’re blessed to be a part of a flourishing mountain biking community and surrounded by a hotbed of great riding. Naturally, this also puts us at the [...]

Kitsbow, Ibis, and Your Neighborhood LBS

November 09, 2012

We’re well aware that the Kitsbow online experience hardly does justice to the amazing feel of our SASTAN mountain bike Jersey fabric, or the excellent fit of our Soft Shell A/M Shorts. That’s why the the Kitsbow Sprinter will be stretching its legs and hitting the road this Saturday, November 10 for our second demo event. Just a short drive from Kitsbow’s Larkspur office, our friends at Sunshine Bicycles in Fairfax are hosting an Ibis Demo Day, and have been kind enough to invite us along. So as you wait to swoon over the Mojo HD or agonize over whether [...]
