    Which bike Rip9 or Jet 9 EDO

    i can get the Rip from Big kahuna full XT for about 3800 and the Jet RDO for 3999 from competitive cyclist with SRAM X0.

    Almost the same price, I ride near San Diego so I dont think there is anything super crazy. I had a Giant NRS and was never comfortable descending, so i wanted something that would give me more confidence. I was pretty much set on the RIP then I saw the Jet RDO for the same price.

    What do i do?

    Does the RDO have a 120 fork? If so I'd pick it.

    Unless it's the new 2013 carbon RIP 9 definitely go with the carbon Jet 9 RDO with a 120mm fork.

    Would you consider a used one? A buddy is selling his 2012 with a nice build. PM me for details if you want.

    The jet9 rdo with a 120mm fork is plenty of bike for most of San Diego. You'll appreciate the geo and weight saving for the climbs. If your gonna order the bike online, I recommend talking to the guys at cal coast bikes first. They price matched outside outfitters frame only price for me...and im sure theyd do the same on a complete bike. I'm talking out the door price was matched, no additional money on top for sales tax. That way you can help support the local shop, and get dealer backing if you had any issues. Just a thought
