    Category crushing standover on the new XS JET9 Carbon and JET9 RDO

    For all the XS sized 5'-5'5" riders looking for a 100mm full suspension carbon bike, check out the 672mm (that's 26.457 inches to be exact) stand over on our new XS JET9 RDO and JET9 Carbon bikes!

    For reference that's even lower than the 26" wheel Myka FSR and several other WSD specific bikes on the market. Here is a quick comparison of some of the big names in 100mm full suspension 29 and their standovers:

    Specialized Epic Carbon 29 755mm (S)
    Specialized Myka FSR (26) 674mm (S)
    Trek Superfly 100 29 780mm (S)
    Cannondale Scalpel 29 735mm (S)
    Sante Cruz Superlight 690mm (S)
    Santa Cruz Tallboy C 29 739mm (M)
    Pivot 429 Carbon 29 703mm (S)
    Salsa Spearfish 29 (80mm) 744mm (S)
    JET9 RDO and JET9 Carbon 672mm (XS)

    I don't have the geometry infront of me but I did see a 2013 salsa spearfish 1 XS at a demo a couple of weeks ago. I'm trying to compare for my wife's next bike. She's 5'1". Looks like a whole lot of options released this 2013 season. We were thinking we'd only have the EMD as an option. After my last Niner we became big fans, and now think the jet 9 carbon is a good option, but like the spearfish build kit better. Will the jet 9 carbon be available in 2x9 with a different fork?

    As a guy with a 27.75 inseam, extra Stand-over is always appreciated! Thanks Niner!
