    How's it ride? If it rides like ***** you can always hang around in the parking lots at Marshall Mesa, get ready for hours while onlookers comment "ooooooohhhhhhh me want!"

    For some reason, when I saw this threads title I already knew what it was about. I was actually just checking this bike out online last night. Pretty sick. I think you could easily build it up to sub 25lb weight. Anybody have any experience with the Molydisulfide coated shocks? This is the first I've seen with that coating but I know it's used in industrial tribological applications with some frequency. I'll look forward to a demo when GBS gets them in. I was thinking about a new road bike but now...

    RDO means race day only. To me that screams fragile and break me. I would love to throw a leg over it either way.

    Actually, it's "Race Day Optimized". I figure that Niner isn't that interested in giving anyone their money back for the next 5 years to make it that fragile.

    5.2 lbs is light as long as it's super stiff. The Giant Anthem X 29er in aluminum is 5.2 lbs for a med, so as long as it's stiffer than the Giant, it's good engineering.

    Again, I had a 9er19er before they were cool. Chris was my hero, then he jumped the shark.

    good stuff

    i got to spend some time on this in park city earlier this week... super fun, and, of course, lightweight.
    skedaddled down 'devo' (black diamond) at deer valley just letting the bike roll.

    i prefer the all black to the halloween version.

    check out the video on Niner's website (video section under Jet 9 RDO). pretty interesting demonstration on the strength of their carbon vs impact damage.

    Do unicorns ride good? Any real world test that anyone can verify this bike performing as if it were the mythical beast?

    Wow good ad campaign! Unicorns are sooooo cool.

    This confirms my suspicions about 29er riders. Wink wink. Nudge nudge.
