    She's a Beauty.
    My next bike will be a the Kermit Air9C or RDO 1x11
    Not sure about the Red in the wheels, it a bit too bold for my taste.

    Thanks! I need to get some proper pics of her. The wheels are sweet but I don't like the color either. I cant argue with the price and weight/ride of them. Still not sure about the Syntace bar and Sid fork. I might sell it and go with the newest Fox fork.

    Can you tell me a little about your cable routing? I can't stand the internal method...right now I have some housing electric tapped on the outside all ghetto rigged. What did you use? It looks clean and proper...

    I know those wheels are lighter/faster but if that bike had either silver or green I9's it would be the hotest HT on this forum.

    The internal cable routing is very easy on this bike. Check out Niners website and download the Niner Encyclopedia : http://ninerbikes.com/downloadfly.as...RS_UNIVERS.pdf

    Muzz: I agree the bike would look better with other wheels, but damn these wheels are fast and very light!

    Yeah, Rotor makes a 34T SS ring and it worked great on that bike.

    Any Jet 9 RDO owners now have a Air 9 RDO? Would love to hear some feedback. Awesome looking bike sn8kbit0308. I have the Jet 9 RDO now and can't get used to FS. Rear feels flexy in the corners.

    Three weeks I avoided looking at this thread. I should have held out, I now feel the yearning, when I don't even have time to ride the bikes I have nearly as much as I'd like.

    Beauties!

    '14 Rip 9 | Pike 140mm 26.6
    '09 Hammer 29'er 20.5 lb
