    Jet9 RDO is a very fast bike & a super good seated or standing & mashing the pedals.

    The Niner will have better suspension geometery. It should have smother action through travel. The carbon Scalpel has engineered frame flex which makes the suspension act stiffer. Also the Scalpel 1 has rear remote lock out. In theory you could feel a difference in lateral frame stiffness in the Cannondale as it has less pivots with larger axles.

    You're also making a fork choice on these two, drastic differences. The Cannondale is an excellent bike but my choice would be the Niner.
    I guide and rent bikes in Northern Utah

    I have owned a scapel and loved every min of it, In fact i have had 2 scapels and 2 rush's and never thought that i would say this but the niner in my opinon is the better choice. I was blown away by the niner and am currently in the market for one myself

    Nuff said! Can't ask for a better endorsement than that. Get the Niner! BTW, I have the RDO myself. It is the most fun, capable all around bike I have ever owned. Haven't heard anyone regret owing one. You will love it. Here's mine. 2013 jet 9 rdo vs scalpel 29 for XC-image.jpg
