    2012 Niner Jet 9 RDO frame deals
    So looks like I missed out, but if anyone knows of any place that has a 2012 Niner RDO Small frame for the deal price of $1500 that was going on, please let me know.

    I'm 5'8" with a 32" inseam, so I'm thinking medium would maybe work but small may be best for me.

    Thanks!

    I am the same size with a shorter inseam and I went with a medium. The smalls seemed to go pretty fast during the closeout rush. If you can find a medium I think you'll be OK with a 70mm stem.

    Good luck

    There are lots of "RDO"'s. Air, Jet, RIP.

    I ordered a small 2012 Jet 9 RDO from OutsideOutfitters late last year (December) and got a call from their sales rep saying Niner overstated their closeout inventory quantities and that no more smalls were available. That said, they offered to sell me a small 2013 Jet 9 RDO at cost.

    My suggestion would be to call around and ask for a deal on a 2013, as I highly doubt any 2012's are still available.

    I apologize, I meant to put JET 9 RDO in the title. Let me see if I can fix that.

    Also if anyone knows where I can get a medium or small then I could try that out with smaller stem.

    Thanks!

    I called a few places already, the best deal I can get so far is still $500 over the closeout deal. $500 is a fair amount so I'm still looking.

    $500 more is a good deal for carbon rockers, thicker rear axel and possible better cabling to the rear derailleur.

    it is a pretty good deal, but I was thinking I'd do it for the $1500 but for $2100 prob not :)

    I guess no more med or small Jet 9 RDO frames anywhere for $1500 or so.

    It was worth asking.

    Thanks,.

    Apparently theres a new cable routing kit that allows you to you a single housing the whole way.

    So Chris at Big Kahuna Bicycles in Littleton Colorado totally hooked me up and took care of me with a 2012 Small Jet 9 RDO frame in WHITE/BLACK.

    Shipped out today, so a week from tomorrow I swap my XX build and XX1 cranks and Chris King hubs on ZTR Crests etc over. Pretty excited that I found one, and wasn't expecting to at all. May go external with the Rear DR cable at first, have to see if I want to pay the LBS to do it, I don't want to run the new cable to be honest. :)

    Win

    Good deal. I was debating between a small and medium. Ended up with a medium black for a really nice deal. Need to build mine up. Still too much snow to ride here in VT.

    Congratulations! Just use the new Niner kit to run full length housing thru the frame. It works great.

    I opened a case on the Niner website asking about the kit, haven't heard back yet.
