I tried to find a link to the article. They compared it to the Felt, Specialized, and a couple other bikes I can't remember. The review and comparison was very complex and complete. The Jet 9 RDO had a 100mm SID and they said the bike needs a 120mm to ride well. I agree! The RDO 9 came in second to the Specialized 10k super bike stating the Speccy is faster; however, they said the RDO 9 is the most fun to ride.
