    My wife's new Air9 RDO project.

    My wife & I are building up her Niner fleet LOL

    As she already has a Jet9 RDO we want to build this up as different as we can & still have it suit her.

    We haven't worked out the build yet but I would like to build this up with the X0 group off her Jet9 & then fit XX1 to the Jet9 RDO.

    So not sure yet but I guess we will sort it in a week,

    Wil post up when we know.

    I shall be watching this thread with interest! I am loving my own Jet 9 RDO but would like a Niner hardtail for certain events too. Probably not in the budget this year, but you never know...

    I'm thinking of an Air9 RDO build this winter for a fast/light h/t option, so I'll be following as well. Would love to try the new 1x11 but budget will likely keep me with 1x10 setup using a 2x crank w/ bashguard? Should be pretty easy to keep complete bike in the 20-22 lb range.

    I am very interested also...I just picked up an Air 9 RDO...I could NOT resist the awesome deal!!!!

    I'm pretty sure that mine will be rigid with a Niner fork.

    Hey Muzz,

    Assuming you go with a PF30 BB, do you install dry as I think Niner recommends, or with a small amount of lube as the PF30 instructions call for? Are the PF30's holding up well on your f/s bikes? I hear the PF30's tend to be a bit noisier than threaded BB's, but it appears most manufacturers are going that way so I hope they hold up well?

    Not to butt in, but I installed mine dry. However, the bike is still in the stand waiting on the XX1 drivetrain, wheels, and brakes...so I have no input as far as performance.

    Definitely interested in your input, Muzz.

    I fit them dry.

    just make sure you are pushing them in stright all the way.

    I have not had any problems with any of mine (quiet & smooth )
