The Ripley is a true 2x10 and has a different gearing. Not sure of where you are ridng (lots of steep climbs vs. flats or technical rocky, etc.) but there is a lot to shifting and how to do so properly.  Check these 2 sites out for some great on line video on shifting tips.  I think Bike Radar and/or Pinkbike may have some as well.  

 

Mtn bike Tips is one of my favorite sites for some great riding and gear help as is Lee McCormack's site (and book)
