    I wrote a review about my Trek Cobia. I tried to write a new and improved one, but the site refused it because I had already written one.

    Sun Ringlé Charger Expert 29er wheelset

    Here's a review of my year with the Sun Ringlé Charger Expert 29er wheelset. I had minor problems with the back wheel recently (broken spoke, seized hub bearing), and the tech support from the manufacturer was outstanding. Just wanted to give them a shout-out, and post a review so others could benefit from my experience.

    I added a TransAm 29er review and a Stan's Arch EX review. Hope to review my Urge Enduromatic soon, and Shimano AM45s when I get them.

    Upset Niner Jet 9 RDO a great bike for a short while!

    I see everyone doing reviews and I just wanted to add my two cents. Like most people reading this, I'm not made of money. I found a 2012 JET 9 RDO on pinkbike and thought, great, I'll give it a try. I like my RIP 9, so whats not to like about a lighter version with slightly less travel. I will start by saying I think the bike is Beautiful!!! It rides really well and came in at 26.15 lbs. Not bad for a large 29er. The bike climbs well and in my opinion even descends better my RIP 9! The only thing I didn't like was the internal cables rattle on descents. Other than that, it climbs without the front wandering, and descends like a champ. I never feel bob from pedaling and it still eats up roots and bumps on the trail. Then, it all went south. I clean the bike after every ride to inspect it as I still don't trust carbon and I noticed a small crack on the seat tube under where the shock link mounts. I thought no big deal, it looks like a superficial clear coat crack. Then Two rides latter, the inside of my seat stay where the link bolts to it, is flaking off. My local bike shop, which is a Niner dealer, took pictures and called Niner. I just heard back that yes they have a five year warranty and yes this is a defect not crash damage but I'm not covered due to I'm not the original owner. My LBS said when he talked to who ever at Niner, I guess it was known to happen! Great, I have a $2800 paper weight. Niner would give me crash replacement for $1800, but do I want a carbon frame from them again? My thoughts are if you give a five year warrant, give a five year warranty! Don't make loopholes so you can not honor the warranty, especially on something that was a known problem that you redesigned because of. Long story short, great bike with crap reliability and a company that wont back their product.

    Write a review get some rep!

    Sucks about the crack, man. Sorry to hear. The non-original owner warranty policy is pretty much standard across the industry, though. With the crash replacement, will that start a new 5 year warranty?

    As nice as it would be for them to fix it free of charge, there is too many variables with anything used. Also there needs to be some incentive to buy new, and that is warrenty. Buying a used niner doesnt put money in niners pocket. Stillnsucks though.

    Have you looked into carbon repair shops?

    Yes, the new frame would have a 5 year warranty. Unless they find a way to get out of it. My mindset is I paid $1400 for the frame and rode it about 10 times. The replacement would be $1800. So now I'm $3200 into a frame that only made it 10 rides before and I cant sell it because the cost $2800 new so either way I have a $1400 paper weight. Maybe I can leave it out somewhere and someone will do me a favor and steal it! Either way, I'm done with Niner's bikes!!!

    I've owned two alloy RIPs and love(d) them both. There are way too many instances of carbon failures, though. They really need to get that worked out.

    Yeah, maybe they should get them built somewhere other than Taiwan. For $2800, Im sure some American company can build them.

    My Airborne Goblin review just posted.
    Money doesn't buy happiness, but you can buy a bike, and that is pretty close.

    Small point, but I'd like to mention that it does put money in Niner's pocket. Would you buy a $5k bike if you knew you could recoup $0 of it in resale? No, the fact that you can recoup $3k is likely what allowed you to make the first purchase in the first place.

    High resale does encourage new product buying, and at a higher price point.

    It is a shame to hear that Niner doesn't support their products.
