    I'm extremely impressed with my Terralogic fork so far. It's slightly heavier, but the performance is quite remarkable, doing exactly what it's supposed to - staying nice and stiff on climbs and under hard cranking, and then immediately soaking up any actual bumps. Nice not to have to lock it out manually. I was a bit skeptical about it, but so far quite pleased.

    What bike do you have the forks on?

    An Update

    I just want to write a little bit more about the J9RDO - Now having done another solid ride on it since the rains have paused I am even more impressed with the bike now if that was possible. The trail I did was mostly rocky, quite rough up and down so plenty of variety. I have also done this trail so many times I have lost count so I know it very well. The J9RDO was fast, in fact 10 mins faster than my fastest ever time on a hardtail 29er but that would makes sense since this track is rough. What I really loved though was how easily the J9RDO handled the rough climbs and rough single track, it's a dream come true. After 70km of riding that stuff I was still feeling fresh! It may be totally fitness or coincidence but the longer the ride went on the further away I got from my riding buddies, these are fit guys, I have to work and struggle to stay with them on road bikes but I feel that with the help of the J9RDO I had that little bit extra that made a huge difference on the trail. To put simply, the bike climbs like a hardtail but when it gets rough it knows how to look after you - what more can I say other than if you are on the fence don't wait, just get it if you like to go quick! I truly love mine and would even buy another if I could!

    Jet 9 RDO pics-p1010622.jpg

    new to posting, based in Rotorua, New Zealand, where muzzanic does most of his riding. Have been riding a SS SIR9 for over 3 years, just bit the bullet and purchased nice Jet9 RDO in stealth colours. Running 1x9 with E13 cranks and chain guide, white brothers loop 120, racing ralphs (FR 2.4 rear 2.25), niner carbon bars and post, niner stem. Eating up lots of miles quickly and loving it.
    Coming off HT SS, I had been worried it wouldn't climb so well but after over 12 hours of riding in last 8 days have put that worry to bed. Mine isn't super light like a lot are posting (I am guessing 24 lb's) but is a practical build for this area and just performs amazingly well.

    But I talked to her and I am going to get her a XX model and a decked out Air 9 RDO. Expect a Dear John letter tomorrow

    hey muzzanic, I was going to send you my mobile no in a private message, but don't have enough posts. Perhaps you could send me yours and i'll text details. Would be keen to catch up but may be out of town this weekend, not quite sure.

    Finally Complete!

    After a couple months of slowly putting it together, ready to ride! Medium Licorice, Lefty Max w/110mm of travel, P321/Enve wheels, RF Next SL crank, set-up 1x w/MRP chain guide, XTR shifting, RDO bar and post, etc. Comes in at about 23.2 lbs. Can't wait to get it on the trail. It would have been another week probably to get that new shift kit from Niner, and already had cables/housings ran, so I hope no probs with the shifting.

    I could not have said this any better. Since I got my Jet9 RDO last month, I have ridden about 400 miles and my Terralogic fork has performed flawlessly!!

    Thanks! Well, haven't actually hit dirt with it yet. Lots of rain Saturday, all the trails were too wet. Which, ironically, is the only reason I was able to get the build finished, as I wasn't riding! Maiden voyage tomorrow. However, I've been riding mostly Lefty's for the last couple seasons, and I have found them to be better in about every way than "standard" forks. So I'm pretty confident it will be great.

    The ride is perfection! After riding numerous other bikes built in the last couple of years, the RDO is smooth as my RIP 9, which was my favorite for the last 3 years.The RDO is way easier to toss around being lighter and provides the dialed in perfect rideability for any terrain!

    I finally have some good (well good for my photography skills) pictures worth posting.













    The bike is amazing in all situations. I picked it up Saturday and now have over 50 miles on it. I expected a lot out of this build but never thought I would get a bike that was so fast and fun to ride.
    Are you a road biker that likes hills? Try this Michigan Mountain Mayhem.
