    In the interests of my financial and marital well-being, I’d like to gently ask that there be no more positive reports on the Ripmo.

    Thanks.

    Eagle works great. I've done 40+ mile day and 8k feet on my 30lb bike using Eagle.
    Relatively easy to set up as well.

    What bike are you riding? That sounds like a hella fun day. My biggest day so far is about 26 miles (40km) / 9000 feet (2800m) but that was on my old remedy 8. Same day would be 2-5% better on the Ibis due to geometry and eagle drivetrain.

    I'm either on an Evil Insurgent or a Calling on most of my rides. I run a 32T chainring for the Eagle.

    I’ve never seen an EVIL bike up close. Always had me curious.

    Same here. 32T + 12speed eagle.

    :thumbsup: Nite rides are great! It seems like your riding a new trail. I only use a light on my helmet you have to see where you want to go not where the bars pointing.

    I only use the light on my bars I used to use a head lamp but the serfas 1600 light is like a flood light so it lights everything where most head light are more of a spot light. Just my preference. But yeah night rights are rad no doubt.

    My Rumblefish is a few years old, but she still serves me well.

    Trek bought them the year I bought the bike. I think it was like 5 years ago. My bike is only in as good shape as it is because I had a couple years of light riding after a back surgery :)

    Makes you wonder if Trek would ever do anything with the brand since now they own it? I feel like fisher has more potential than to just be acquired and disposed of.

    Trek actually bought Fisher way back in 1993, followed by Klein and Bontrager a few years later. I had a ‘97 Klein, post-acquisition but made in the US at Trek in Wisconsin (in-house welded frame, not just assembly). I’m pretty sure only the Bontrager name remains, for Trek’s component and accessory line.

    Ah so that’s how bontrager came to be...I always figured it was just a name they developed for their in house components.

    Considering that it's a multi thousand dollar bike I recommend the "fancy" tool. You can get frame/wheel bearing removal tools for less than $20. If you are determined to be cheep you can use a large flat head screw driver, just be careful that you strike the bearing in a way that you don't damage it if you plan to reuse it.

    For removing pressfit bottom brackets use the park's tool

    I can concur. I have 541 miles and 70K feet of elevation gain on my XO eagle and it's still smooth and wonderful.

    That looked like a lot of fun. I was planning to go, but then decided to do truck stuff instead.

    Knowing me, I would have snuck off the road and ridden all the MTB trails out there in the moonlight instead.

    Yep, I buddy up at night. The woods get spooky, and nothing like a bit of labored breathing to telegraph "prey" to onlooking critters.
