    New to me Niner RIP9

    I just had to share I am now an owner of a 2011 RIP9 size medium. The bike is equipped with full X9 and XT components, Shimano XT 10 speed crank, Avid Elixer CR brakes, Shimano 11-34T cassette and chain, Rock Shox Reba forks w/lock out Fox RP23 rear shock with pro pedal and lock out, S/R Black Flag tubeless wheel set and Kenda Nevegal tires and including a K/S dropper seat post and WTB seat.

    Awesome bike with an awesome ride, but what do know, I have not been mountain biking since the early 90's on my Giant ATX 780 with a Judy. I thought trail running was a blast, but I could not get the "crazy" grin off my face during or after my first real ride. Here's to hoping I have many thousands of miles on this bike.

    Welcome to the revolution. I got back into MTB on the first gen rip, it was a game changer for me. Enjoy the ride!
