    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...

    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.

    NIner JET 9 RDO

    It took 4 months of waiting to get the bike but was well worth the wait.Final Build weight was 10.6kg and is fast up but faster down the hill.To finish it off and being a Simpson fan I couldn't resist a Duff Beer.

    XTR 2x10

    For those riding XTR 2x10, any problems with the front chainring shifting or chain falling off? On the Niner website, they say this crank is not recommended for this bike because of the chainline.

    I know you are asking XTR, but my XT cranks with XTR derailleurs are just fine.

    I have an XTR 2x10. Owned the bike for several months now and been through the toughest trails. Only encountered derailed chain once when shifting down.

    What's up with the way you mounted the fork lockout?

    Here is mine, I thought I put it in this thread but must have missed it. The total weight with pedals, bottle cage and Garmin mount (Garmin not on bike) came in at just under 22 1/2 pounds.



    I have had the bike for 2 1/2 months now and have put over 200 miles with almost 25,000 feet of climbing on it and WOW!!! This bike is unbelievable. It is so much better than I had expected and I had expected a lot. The smoothness over medium bumps and jumps is so smooth and the small bump compliance is the best. The best part is how it handles fast corners. I love to go fast down hill and rail on tight corners and this bike just gives you confidence.

    Here she is.

    I'm running the XTR 985 40x28 that they recently suggested was incompatible. Mine has been great except for 2 horrific instances of chainsuck in which the chain has ended up jammed above the chainstay, so I had to either take the chain apart or undo the top shock bolt and cycle the suspension to free the chain. Granted both of these occasions have happened during horrifically muddy races. When the drivetrain's been clean, I've had no problems.

    Ok guys, I need some help.

    I still have and love my Tang RDO. I ride it as an aggressive trail bike and weigh around 190 with gear.

    Recently I've been experiencing a clicking/creaking sound around the headset. To troubleshoot, I've done the following:

    - loosened and retightened stem and bars
    - removed headset, cleaned and re-installed
    - switched brakes and front wheel

    No matter what I do, I still have creaking and clicking that happens--most noticeable when standing to mash and when applying heavy front brakes.

    Any ideas? I'ts driving me crazy.

    Tony

    If it is a Fox Fork on your jet it sound similar to the creak that comes from the crown steerer tube join. If it is this noise it is covered under warranty by fox.

    To check you can remove the forks put the steerer tube in vice (dont damage the steerer tube) or bike stand and then pull on the legs mimicking the loads and should be able to reproduce the noise/problem.

    Hope this Helps
