I'm a bit reluctant to write this at this point in time, since I don't have too many rides on my Ribbon Air, and the fork had an issue I couldn't resolve myself. I don't want this to be misconstrued as a "bad review", as the story isn't done yet. It's a fork with unknown usage/maintenance, since I got it second hand. I fully expect to have a like-new fork and happy ending within a week or so. I got the fork a few weeks ago with my new-to-me secondhand GG Megatrail. It had one short season on it by a guy in Vail who seemed to be intermediate, so the crap wasn't beat out of it. My mistake was I didn't ride or even test the fork much before pulling it apart to adjust the travel, just a few pushes and bounces, it seemed to be ok, and I was kinda delirious with newbikeitis at the time. As soon as I got it I pulled the lowers to adjust the travel to what the MT was spec'd for (170, it was at 160). There are small spacers you can add or remove to change from 140mm to 170mm (on the 27.5 version) in 5mm increments, in a half hour. I really like this feature because with GG you can short-shock a Megatrail and adjust the fork down and have a Shredd Dogg. Well, after a few rides, I realized the stiction was pretty bad off the top of travel. I couldn't even check sag, it wouldn't move with my weight and normal riding position. A little more weight on the front and it would drop a couple inches and stick. I pulled the lowers again, checked that the foam rings didn't get folded, and the air and damper rods moved smoothly, all seemed fine. I put new wiper seals/foam rings in and lubed it all real good. Still the same stiction. I called MRP and spoke to their tech and went through all the steps to eliminate possible causes of the stiction, most of which I had already checked. So I got an RA and sent it back earlier this week. The tech assured me he would make it right and in a timely manner. We shall see. So that's the issue, now my review (not dwelling on poor small bump absorption due to the stiction just yet). The thing is super adjustable with the positive and negative air springs set individually, you can really tune it to be plush or firm in the top part of travel. And the ramp control knob lets you, um, adjust the ramp-up to your liking. You want it plush off the top but not bottom out, no problem. Ride higher mid travel? Just a few clicks. I was really impressed, if you don't mind messing some to get it tuned to your liking. The chassis is solid, equal to the '16 36 I ran on the old bike, stiffness wise. It gobbled up medium to bigger hits well also. I had some harshness on fast chatter stuff but that could be due to the stiction. Still I would say it wasn't any worse than my 36. That's all for now, will update when I get more news from MRP. Oh yeah, you can convert the air version to coil for a reasonable price too (but can't go back to air after coil). That may be in my future. There's a few others on here with a Ribbon so maybe they can chime in too.
