    Ok Niner, where is the WFO RDO? :)

    After riding my Rip9 RDO and owning a WFO in the past, i couldn't help but wonder how awesome the WFO RDO would be in carbon with the new pivot bearings, shorter chainstays, piggyback shock, Pike 150 etc etc.

    Just give all of us a sign that it is coming, or if it isn't...get busy!!!

    Ok Niner, where is the WFO RDO? :)

    Two new announcements a week from today...

    One is definitely their AM hardtail. The other, not really sure. Do they need a JET alloy update more than a carbon FS AM bike?

    Stay tuned... (!)

    No doubt about it. I know that the WFO has always been highly regarded albeit a tad off the radar for most folks. With the recent release of the Enduro 29 and longer travel forks being more readily available, now might be the time to make a splash with a WFO RDO.

    Niner has so many redundant models, so why the hell not.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    No more than, say, Trek, Specialized, or Giant. Alloy and carbon models of the same bike, bikes very close to one another on the spectrum of XC, Trail, AM, steel hardtails, alu hardtails, carbon hardtails. It's a bit unusual for a small company, but since they only make 29ers, they might as well make a bunch of them to give us some options. Choice ain't a bad thing when it comes to bikes, unless you don't know what you're looking for.

    Myself and 3 of my friends will gladly upgrade our WFO's for a carbon version with more travel. I would like to see a 150mm of rear travel and shorter stays using SRAM's taco front der and removable ISCG tabs. Also keep the 150mm rear triangle an option as well, a bike that is capable of those kind of speeds needs it.

    I have heard rumors of either a new DH 29er, carbon WFO or an updated Al JET. I will buy the first 2 if they come out.
