    A return to rear sus..

    I have spent the last 2 seasons on a SS c-dale 29er very happily. I happen to be riding from Telluride to Moab in Sept so I thought having one of these would make sense.

    I do really like the bike. I miss the lefty in some ways but the pup lock and the u-turn on the reba make me happy.

    The frame is good but I would love to see it a bit more torsional stiffness. The travel feels more like 110 than 80.

    LOVE the Mrp 1x9. It works well with the 33t Rotor q-ring too!

    San Juan Huts?

    Are you doing the hut to hut trip in september? I am doing the Durango to Moab route starting september 21st. I actually sold my Jet because I wanted something a little more durable for this trip. Let me know what dates you are going, we are planning on spending a few days riding in Moab once we get there and then heading to Fruita for a few days.

    Other than the fork that is the stock spec for the X0/X9 bike that they sold in 2008. It is a pretty good spec overall, but you will probably want to change the tires for racing and go tubeless.

    Hey swim bike run,

    The components are pretty good and unless your a pro racing to win I think that they will suit you well. You could go lighter but I wouldn't at first, when the parts wear out or break then you can replace them with something better. Just go have fun!

    Happy Trails

    HI everyone,

    This is probably one of the the very few Jet9 riding in belgium. The 29er craze hasnt really hit europe yet but with my brother in law size ( around 6'"6) it made sense.
    His previous bike was Decathlon 26" XL frame.
    We only rode a little this morning while it stopped raining so its too soon to talk about good or bad decisions but the first impression seems to be awesome.
    Thank you for you comments...

    My brother in law ready to take off with his now defunct Jet9. This happened in France in a region called Bourgogne. Lots of wine and tons of singletracks through the grapevine fields (not sur about these wordss but im sure you'll understand )
    We are now waiting for the 2010 frame (same color) so we can rebuild the bike and ride in this area again.

    Nice

    So what wheels & things are you going to run ?

    My Jet will end up with Sram XX, but for now it will be fork & brakes.

    I have the XX shifters already but yet to get the cassette & rear derailier but holding off to see if the X0 will work with the XX shifters & also waiting to see what price the XT 10sp cassette will be.

    I am going full XX. Wife said life is too short. With some I9/Crest wheels.

    I tried the XX stuff yesterday, and I was impressed with the front shifting, the gearing range and the brake feel.

    That is what it took to get me excited about re-building the Jet.

    Fox 29 80mm G2

    Just got a Jet 9 frame in vanna white and waiting on some parts to arrive to complete the build I have a fox f29 G2 80mm fork that originally came of a fisher and was hoping to run it on the Jet rather than spend the money on another fork...has anyone used this fork on a Jet and or will the geometry of it work on the Jet
    thanks

    I don't think it would be the best however some of the great discoverys in life have happened when someone trys what every body else says won't work,

    If I had 1 sitting around I would try it for sure.

    The only way to find out for sure.

    Well some how I talked myself into the xx tapered fork....wasn't that hard
    I like that it is made to fit , the remote lockout which I will use a lot, the geometry suits the bike better I feel the angles are steep enough already, the ability to set the shock for different amount of travel, I can sell the fox and re-coop a good portion of the cash back and lets not forget the look cool factor ....also to quote muzzanic everyone dies,but not everybody lives ...thanks for that

    JET has landed

    this build started out to be economical build... was going to be another niner hardtail this one with gears and a fox front fork I already had and some other bits ....well as you can see things changed, ....up came the question h/t or a full squish then jet or rip..... found a jet frame that was available then thought the fox g2 fork was not the best choice for the angles on this frame so reba xx we went and the wheels I ordered that where on sale went on back order so I ended up buying the wheels I really wanted in the first place....went out for almost 3 hours today bike is really awesome still getting used to it but I can tell it's gonna be great ....thanks mike and jamie at evolution-cycles.ca if you are in ontario they can help you every step of the way

    2010 Jet 9 pics & build

    New to MTBR thought I would post my 2010 Jet 9, (the Grinch). My wife named my mistress. My previous bike is a 2008 Cannondale F4. I made a huge upgrade. First from a 26er to a 29er then a HT to a FS and the biggest change was the price. (I am a tightwad but figured I may as well get something I wasn't going to want to upgrade anytime soon).
    I can say that I do not regret this upgrade one bit. What a nice and fun ride. I also started XC racing this year. I love it!!!

    Sram XO grip shifters
    Shimano X9 front derailler
    Sram XO rear derailler
    Truvative Noir crankset
    Sram 990 cassett
    FSA SL-K flatbar
    FSA OS 90 stem
    Avid elixir CR brakes (160mm rotors)
    Rockshox Reba Team forks 20mm axle
    Fox RP23 shock
    WTB silverado saddle
    Thompson Masterpiece seatpost
    Stans ZTR Crest rims
    Hope II hob
    Maxxis Aspen tires (tubeless)
    DT Swiss supercomp spokes
    Xpedo SL/CR pedals

    Did I say I love this bike!!!!

    Is that a Fox fork? It looks like a Rock Shox.

    I was thinking about that on my way home yesterday and realized I put it as a Fox fork. It is a Rockshox fork. I hasd looked at the Fox RP23 shock as I was typing. I also get distracted easily it seems.

    lefty on XL Jet 9

    Just got a XL frame Jet 9. Looking at putting a lefty on it. I have currently a Cannondale F1 XL. with carbon lefty: just love it.
    Wander if anybody used the same set-up with XL frame and how did you manage to do it ?
    Looks like I have to have a specific XL fork to fit the headtube (145mm on my jet). Got good input from Jake (Project321) as I will need an adaptator.
    I was originally going to reuse most of my F1 components to keep the cost down. now very tempted to go with XX 2x10 group (so expensive ...) and a new fork ..... so much for the cost down !

    Hello, I'm the proud owner of a 2011 Jet 9, size XL. I've got this set up just how I'd like it with long cranks and an Angleset to keep the steering quick with the Lefty MAX.

    I built it up and test rode it Sunday, lots of fun! Please pardon the uncut cables on my Formula R1s, I couldn't wait to take it out for a ride.

    Much thanks to Jake at Project 321 for all of his help.

    Nice. I see you like a long stem and layback. I'm still working through pressure settings on the suspension to get more efficiency uphill. Downhill sure is fast though.

    The 700mm bars feel really great. The Profile 185mm cranks are heavy but absolutely rock-solid.

    How about some complete weights on the two previous black beauties? Great looking bikes, how much travel are you guys running on those Lefty's?

    Thanks guys. I was optimistic that I'd hit 23 pounds, but it's at 24.25 lbs right now. This bike is built up really solidly in the frame and drivetrain though, as I tend to break stuff.

    The Lefty MAX has 110mm of travel with a 30mm spacer for 29ers. However the axle-to-crown is only about 3mm taller than a two-legged 100mm fork. I also have it angled back 1 degree to quicken the steering. The raised bottom bracket works great with the long cranks. This subsequently gives me a little setback on the saddle also.

    I'm running 1x10 with a 36t ring in front a-la JHK's Superfly 100. That gearing feels a little tougher than the hardtail did, but we have steep hills where I live and I can still scamper up them.

    In my third year of racing, I really worked on bike fit a lot and so far it's feeling good.

    25.6 lbs on mine. Already have a 1x9 hardtail, so went with 2x10 on this one. Same 110mm travel on the lefty. Took me some time to find an affordable lefy with specific XL crown for these frames.

    Good that you mentioned the XL-specific Lefty. It looks great now that it's put together, but it definitely wouldn't fit without the upper clamp being flipped.

    Mine and a friend's frame both came that way, with black linkages. I should reiterate that this is a 2011 model although I can't say for certain that's the reason. Another difference in the 2011 is the lack of the included, integrated headset. I bought my own, which was good for what I wanted to do with the geometry.

    I should mention to anyone wanting to save money on an expensive Lefty, the Cannondale trade-in program. Jake at Project 321 supports it, and it includes any Headshok, not just Leftys. $300 off the price of mine for an old elastomer P-Bone.

    Now get out there and race it!!!

    I've got s front derailleur, shifter and no nifty Lefty, so I'm a pound more than you.
    And I'm carrying an extra water bottle in my jersey pocket due to the heat this past Sunday.
    So that's gotta be good for some more weight, right?

    But it races just fine....

    For the creaking issue, try tightening your rear qr a bit. I had the same thing, turns out my rear qr was on the loose side.

    Second that. I was running a KCNC rear skewer and it did not have enough gripping power to keep the creaking away. I switched to a Salsa and the creaking has gone almost completely away. It only creaks on very torquey climbs now. I may got to one of the DT rear skewers.

    Waiting on a frame and just getting everything ready to roll....

    Question on the Front Der.....

    Looking to run 1x9 and see here that some are running with out a keeper... Any chain tossing happening here? If it helps Iím running a shadow rear der.

    Second, I know Niner recommends a high mount bottom swing Front der but is anyone running a top swing? if so, any issues?

    Thanks

    Well if you are going to be 1x9 then it doesn't really matter what kind of Front der you use. Don't need to hook a cable to it, just install it and use the limit screws to trim it out.

    Good point...

    If I'm going to put something there I would hook it up and use it..
