Just want to know how many out there have customized their carbon Niners by getting them repainted? I ask this because I have JEt 9 RDO white on black purchased on closeout from CC when they were on deal everywhere. Due to financial changes and time I have not been able to build this up yet. I have to be honest, the thread of all the RDO's cracking has me sort of thinking of selling this thing and purchasing the all black Jet 9 RDO with new cable routing, 12x142 axle, etc... I know, I know this may not be the case with mine, but at 215 without a pack and the way I ride I am a bit hesitant.
So, I know a guy who can match the silver paint on the black Jet 9 RDO that is on the carbon suspension link on the most current model (I know they don't do model years). I'm thinking of having him paint this silver color (maybe a tad darker), on the bike just like the white bike. I'm also considering the doing the black area's matte black paint and doing the silver parts gloss. I want to keep the Niner logo the same but in matte black. The other option is to paint the bike white exactly like the one I have now.
Anybody out there done this? I should probably contact Niner about any voidance of warranty. I saw a Jet 9 RDO painted matte black posted here somewhere and I can't find it. I would like to ask them about it. It looked really nice the way it came out.
