    Mine Comes Home Tomorrow!

    I've been trying to hold back my excitement and wait until I get my bike before posting, but I just can't help myself. My LBS called today and the last of the parts from Thomson showed up today and they are ready for me to come pick up my new Jet 9 RDO. I have a picture that the shop sent over a few days ago. Everything will be the same as what is pictured, except the stem will be a 0' rise instead of the 10'. Be certain that I'll post more pictures once I have the bike in my possession.

    Nice! That actually looks pretty darn good with the white fork...would never have thought so. You'll love it with the extra travel up front.

    Here are the pics.

    I love this bike! I got out on her for an inaugural ride yesterday. I think I need to remove some spacers from below the stem. I had a little trouble keeping the front wheel down when it got super steep. Other than that the ride was amazing. Here are some pics I took the night I brought her home.

    I'm running a 100mm stem at -7 degree with zero spacers on a Med frame. I have no problem keeping the front end down on the steepest of climbs. Drop the bars a little a see if it helps.

    Beauty. That is a whole lotta seatpost. How tall are you, and how long is the post?

    I'm about 5' 9.5" with 31.5" inseam. the seatpost is a 410mm Thomson. Niner recommends a 400mm length post for the Jet9 RDO.
