    RDO Upgrade

    I upgraded my frame from the aluminum Kermit Jet 9 to a 2012 Licorice RDO. I also upgraded the fork to a 120mm CTD and went with an all RDO cockpit. I have yet to ride it beyond the parking lot, as my LBS has to finish the final tweaks and cut the fork. I used my 2012 XT 2x10 and XT brakes, as well as the Crank Brothers Colbalt wheelset.

    I will more than likely upgrade to the XX1 sometime next year and I am debating on whether to build a set of ArchEX with King hubs... Not sure of the King hub and XX1 compatibility though... Still quite far down the road...

    Nice Boom! You will love the 120mm Fork. It really adds to the control on the downs. I took mine for another spin around Deems today. It really smooths thing out with all the chatter and still climbs fast.

    Bike looks sick! How do you like the Crank Bro wheels? I heard they're flexy but have yet to talk to someone who's ridden them.

    Thanks, Mike. I may pick it up tomorrow after work. Looking forward to getting it dialed in and start using it!

    They have about 1000 miles on them and have been great so far. However, that is one of the reasons the bike is still at the shop. I noticed some excess flex on the last couple rides on the Aluminum Jet and it looks like the spokes are due to be tightened and trued. I will follow up to this post after I get the bike back and ride it a few times.

    I can't wait to get the fork cut and get rid of that myriad of ugly spacers! It is an eyesore! :-)

    Brought her home today. Took it for the first shakedown ride tonight. Need to add more air to the suspension, but other than that, it feels dialed in. I am really happy with the way the cockpit turned out. Very stoked with the bike so far. Looking forward to some long rides!!

    Erik, Eli and the team at Slippery Pig Bikes in Phoenix really took good care of me. They helped me get the bike dialed in and looking good!

    Once you get the suspension dialed in it will still be plush but still climb really well out of the saddle. Really try to get the 25% recommended sag. It was the magic number for me on feel.

    I leave mine in the 1 position and the CTD fork in Trail with the Trail Tune in the middle.

    I am 3 rides in, plus one small shakedown ride. I really really dig this bike! Fast, climbs great and seems very stable so far. I am still getting used to how light the front and rear end feel. Also, this is my first carbon frame. 2 things I noticed, which I have also read about, is how smooth and quiet the ride is on carbon. Wow!! The combination of the Jet's 100mm CVA suspension and the 120mm Fox Talus CTD go great together.

    My third Niner and my favorite!

    One more picture... :-)
