Hi guys,

https://www.ternbicycles.com/us/bikes/471/rip

Wonder if someone has it or at least tried it. Seen it in Japan, like a lot the looks, but I wonder how it rides. It's pretty new, so it's hard to find any material on it in the web. And it''s nowhere to find in the shops around here.

Thanks!

    What's unique about it ?

    Mostly the looks. As far as I managed to translate japanesese reviews it seems to be really fast for a hybrid. Making a solid city commuter bike overall.
    As far as pricey, i know what you are saying, but here in Santa Monica it''s hard to find a any decent bike below 600 in a shop.
  • I'd echo the pricey.

    It has only 1x8 drive chain 1x systems work best with 9-12 systems.

    it appears to have fairly slammed stem coupled with riser bars etc.

    In short I think it's intended to look good, not that much though has been thought about riding is my hunch.
