    Build up RDO Jet 9 OR swap parts over from current Jet 9

    Whats up Ninerds!?!? I dont stress much but this is lingering in the back of my mind. I have a brand new RDO Jet 9 (White/Black) frame lying in the bed. Build it up with Scram XX, 2x10 group set with RDO cockpit, and Sid Fork? OR transfer all my components from my current Aluminum Jet 9? I'd be transferring a full XT, 3x9 group set, with Easton EC90 cockpit and Carbon wheels, and Reba fork.

    I guess the dilemma is will I ever ride my Aluminum Jet 9 ever again over RDO. My jet 9 is stupid fast, climbs like a billy goat and corners like a dirt bike. Best set up I've ever built.

    What are your opinions?

    You'll never ride your aluminum Jet 9 again :-) I kept mine around for two months then sold it.

    Thats one for swap over....I guess I would have to get new front derailleur and seatpost. Still not breaking the bank going that route.

    I was going to say swap over because you just won't ride the Jet9 any more.

    The Jet9 RDO is so much faster that you may even want to rethink the whole bike setup.

    My vote is if you are going to buy anything, then buy XX1.

    If you are unsure that this is the right thing to do, Swap out your Jet9 parts & ride the bike untill you have a very clear idea of what you want/ need on this bike.

    Just my 2 c

    Depends on how much money you want to spend. Build it up the way you mentioned and sell your Jet 9 complete. Or better yet, buy another Jet RDO and swap your components from your AL Jet (sell the Al frame) and have TWO awesome Jet RDO's. Once you ride the Jet RDO you will never go back to the Al Jet. There is no comparison, they are two completely different bikes with the Al being much less of a bike.
