    Cool-blue Rhythm Jet 9 RDO move to 142X12 rear axle

    Hi Niners,
    Can someone tell me when did Niner move to 142X12 rear Axle?
    Was it the 2012/2013/2014 model?
    Thanks!

    They changed it on the 13/14 models All the Green Jet9 RDO's are 142x12 & all the Black ones with carbon shock rockers are 142x12.

    Thanks for the reply can you answer this as well.
    I just bought a demo bike from my LBS.
    it is the black and white model.
    my LBS said the frame is the 2013 model that was assembled March 2013.
    The rear axle is a regular 135X10 and not the 142X12.
    Does it make sense or is it the 2012 model frame?

    Thanks

    The Black/White all have 135x10. Does not matter when they were produced. Niner does not work with modelyears btw so it is hard to determin when it was produced. I guess they can check it with the serial number though.

    This.

    I'm not sure when the stopped making the Black & White, My wife's was made in 12.

    They my well have made your frame early in 13, But it is what most of us call a 12 model, Even though Niner doesn't do model years.
