    Green RDO with XX1

    Well I have a busy weekend building My New Jet9 RDO with XX1 groups set.

    I have to build one for a riding buddy as well.

    Muzz, you crazy! So you have a Jet9 rdo but you got the new one AND you are getting the rip9 rdo? The first step is admitting you have a problem. Fortunately I fully support your disease and cannot wait to see the results. Btw did you see the Specialized enduro 29er?

    Yea it looks a bit like it.

    I'm just gearing up for having all my bikes with 142 x 12

    I have so many different places I ride & like to use different tyres.

    So i run many sets of wheels setup ready to go, So it will be nice to run just one setup & I like 142 X 12

    So I will build up & keep the green RDO & sell the Tang RDO & just keep the 1 bike while waiting for the Rip9 to turn up.

    I did see the Enduro but am not that keen, I will ride 1 at some stage but it would have alot to live upto.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how the XX1 goes.

    I need this kind of bike problem. Agree with the wheel theory, I try to have compatible wheels to swap mainly because of frequent tire and spoke destruction. Its great to be able to make a quick change for the next ride.

    Pictures of the finished build please.

    I got to see the green in person at a race last week end. Looks great. The guy that owned it said he really likes the added stiffness compared to his older RDO. I have no complaints about the 2012 so the 2013 should be even better.

    Nice bikes! I'm wanting to demo one of these and hopefully sooner than later. If it really changes the game for me I'll be selling the Tallboy C.

    On a side note, did you all see Devinci's Wilson Carbon. Does is look similar to anything or is it just me?

    Yes well I would buy what ever bike worked best for me & IMO the Jet9 RDO is so far ahead of the Tallboy in my eyes I get wound up when people talk about them being in the same leag.

    This is not just from just a test ride it is from owning both.

    So many people have TB's in AZ and so many recommendations from other riders that I thought for sure it would be the bike for me. The rear sus is clumsy to the point of being a deal breaker. Same league as CVA and especially dw-link - more like single pivot. Could be the most overrated suspension available.

    But, if you love your TB, so be it. I don't get it.

    Great looking frame, Muzz!! Looking forward to the finished product and your XX1 review. A couple of guys I ride with as well as myself are considering upgrading to the XX1.

    Careful, flaming any type of suspension style in the world of mtbr only serves to be a bridge burner.

    You are right, my bad. Probably like current political debates. I see many happy TB riders on the trail so what do I know.

    Too bad the XX1 system is so insanely expensive. I guess that is price of being an early adopter. Hopefully shimano will come out with their version and trickle the technology to XT pricing.

    That's some nice spend, Muzz.

    The XX1 group is going for about $1250 - 1700 here in the states. Add the frame at $2899 and there certainly is a barrier to entry for most of us before we even get into wheels, fork, brakes, stem, post, bars, saddle, grip, and pedals.

    Post up the $8000 bike when it's built.

    Ready to ride.

    The bike looks good with the carbon wheels but looks better with my wifes silver I9's than with my gold ones.

    I haven't told her yet that I have a set of silver I9 carbons coming.

    I really like the XX1 on the little ride I have done so far.

    No i have not weighed it yet.

    At the moment I only have my I9's set up for XX1.

    I have a free hub coming for my Reynolds & that won't be here till Jan.

    I have a New set of I9 carbons coming set up for XX1

    It is such a nice bike to ride with the XX1

    Looking forward to doing a big ride in the weekend.

    Great looking bike!
    After the weekend and your big ride would you mind giving feedback on:
    1) how well the RDO pedals ie. efficiency
    2) whether or not that chain stays on ;-). (not much real world testing info I can find on xx1 yet!)
    Hope you and your wife enjoy your new bikes!

    The RDO is the best pedaling FS bike I have ever ridden.

    The chain stays on just fine so far.

    The 2nd RDO is for a friend I ride with, My wife has had her RDO for a year.

    I have had my Tang RDO for a year as well & I'm still impressed how well it goes.

    OMG. Your RDO is a year old and STILL running. Those Jet 9 RDO's must be one durable bike!
