    Thanks, this is my first dropper seat post. I use it all the time, way more than I anticipated. The seat post cable is routed on the down tube along the rear brake cable with zip ties.

    Difficult to say, others on this site that are closer to your height may know best. According to the Niner sizing chart you are at the upper end of Large frame size. Can you find a demo?

    If you like the size and dimensions of your current bike, you may want to measure your bike's dimensions and compare them to the RDO sizing and geometry here:

    Niner Bikes | The Big Revolution

    I'm 5'11 (180cm) and between a medium and large frame size according to the Niner site. I had thought that I might want the medium for agiIity since I was coming off a 26er, and I had demo'd other brands of 29ers that felt like driving trucks. I was fortunate to be able to ride both RDO sizes before I ordered and although the medium felt very good, as soon as I rode the large I knew it was the size for me. The RDO is plenty nimble for me on switchbacks and tight singletrack.

    Probably already mentioned this, I am 5'11" and moved from a medium jet 9 alloy to a large Jet 9 RDO. Cockpit dimensions ended up being very similar. I also am on a large Air 9 Carbon.

    Maiden Voyage

    Even though I picked up the frame locally over 3 months ago, I finally got around to building her up yesterday. The most frustrating thing? The masking tape on the internal cable routing guide hoses in the frame! Damn that stuff was sticky!

    I built her up with a mix of CL carbon finds, existing parts from a 1x9 build, an ebay wheel set, and a Chainlove front shock. Bastard bike-love child! It is a small frame, I'm 5'8" and she fit perfect right from the driveway. She's not the lightest and I don't even know the weight, but she was built to be ridden hard everywhere from Front Range hill climbs to Porc Rim shuttle descents.

    I took her to Hall Ranch here north of Boulder, CO, for a shakedown ride and had very few issues. Not a fan of the Slant 6s in the decomposed granite and flatted at the end of the ride so will switch to tubeless Racing Ralphs but that was it. I'm not going to say the ride changed my life forever but it did feel like I was riding an unbelievably light RIP which is definitely a compliment in my book. Handled the climbs, rock garden, and especially the descent like the high end bike it is! Grinning the whole way down!

    Changes? Will need to dial in the front fork and check into a few internal mods, tubeless Racing Ralphs, and eventually a new 2x10 XTRTrail drivetrain.

    In the meanwhile, I'll ride her...

    ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video HostingFirst ride on the new Rig.......29 miles 3,400 feet of climbing. Absolutely incredible. The buildings in the distance in the photo are Vegas hotels on the strip. Escaped the city for a nice little ride!

    Did some 'upgrades' on my bike.

    MT8 brakes instead of XX WC, new KMC 'show and shine' Chain and a new Tune frontaxle.

    Still waiting on a RDO Steerer to replace this one.

    Ride review? It's all been said before...

    - Rockship
    - Climber
    - All-purpose
    - quick handling

    Runs circles around my old Specialized Epic Carbon.

    It rained all of March and April and haven't trained to beat Strava times set with Epic.

    Licorice bike was built for low weight and XC racing (medium size for girlfriend) except it has an all XT Group. I am sure XTR and XX is would take it the last mile for weight weenies.

    My Tang (L) was built for all purpose and love the XTR Shadow+ derailleur. Don't tell her I stole her cooler Niner carbon post and bars. I don't like the Exiwolf tires and hope to move to something with more grip on our local hard pack adobe and gravel.
