    Excellent bike but I just don't see how that is 21.5 lbs.
    I guess you said with your other wheels but even so.

    Well done, I'm glad you find the ride so rewarding.
    I'm still waiting for my carbon lefty steerer I ordered 4 months ago to complete my build.
    2x10
    '12 Niner Jet RDO 22.9 lb
    1x1
    '09 Cannondale F29er 1 20.1 lb
    '10 Sanderson Soloist 23.8 lb
    '09 Hammer 29'er 20.5 lb

    It looks good to me

    I like more travel up front than the 100mm but thats me, I'm so pleased that you have ordered this frame.

    I'm sure you will be stunned at how good they are.

    I wavered back and forth between the Rockshox SID 100mm and the Fox 120mm shock. In the end I took the 1# weight penalty and went with the Fox because I can easily choose between 120mm and 95mm. Fox is very easy to setup and I like that it matches the RP-23 rear shock.

    I'm running XX 175mm cranks on my Lge RDO with 156 Q factor & use US size 10.5 MTB shoes with no problem.

    If you use much bigger shoes & your feet don't stay stright on the pedals you may want to go wider.

    Weight is a nice 21.5 lbs so it has ended up lighter than my hardtails, probably has a fair bit to do with the Keronite SID which is superb.
    What cables did you use for your shifters and brakes...

    I wanted to let you know I appreciate the time out you spent writing you observations of your bike in an earlier thread. That weighed very heavily in the discision of purchasing the RDO frame...

    Thanks Again...

    My girlfriend and I ordered one each. She has never rode one either. She did ride a Jet 9 and was blown away how fast and easy it was to climb. She didn't need to hear the RDO was better. She didn't want to hear I had a better bike so she said "I want one too!"

    I have the Fox 32 TALAS 29 120 FIT RLC (Black/15mm TA/1.5" Tapered). Slight weight savings with the FIT over Terralogic.

    You didn't like the Terralogic system at all or did you prefer the adjustability of the RLC more? or

    Was it just the weight savings?

    Neither, cost and weight were deciding factors. I wanted the lightest TALAS I could get.

The fork is plenty stiff too compared to my Fox with less travel and 400 gram weight penalty over the SID.
    That's great to hear about that fork. I ordered the same fork a couple of weeks ago, and its sitting in my living room. All I need is the frame to arrive (I'm hoping it's under 3-weeks away) and I can build the bike up.

    Yeah, it's definitely 21.5 lbs - confirmed that on two different digital scales and the difference was only a few grams. It could go lighter too, go a double crank, new XX grip shift, lighter seat post etc. There is one chap that built a large J9RDO and it is only 9.4kg, seen it on Niners Facebook Page, it has some funky Euro parts on it but that is damn light.

    I was considering the Terralogic but I read that some folks weren't really sure about the macth up between the super smooth kashima rear shock & a Terralogic fork. I like Terralogic though just wasn't 100% sure, the SID is damn efficient but it's the wide adjustability that appeals, you tune it to suit you.
