    I took the plunge into carbon.....

    This is my first round into the world of carbon frames... Vanna is her name.. This must be the 2nd rev. of frames as the headset is drop in like the original '09 RIP's. Running full length cable housing to prevent all of the horror stories I read about ghost shifting. For me, a svelte 25.4 pounds is the lightest bike I've ever owned. The specs are...
    med. size frame
    combination of XTR/XT drivetrain (9speed)
    XX SID 120mm 15mm axle fork
    Hayes Prim Pro brakes with Alligator serrated rotors 180mm
    Light Bike AM carbon rims laced to CK hubs (rear has 10mm Hadley bolt on thru axle) converted to tubeless
    WTB Bronson up front and Kenda Small Block 8 in the rear
    Answer Pro taper AM carbon bars with Oury grips
    Niner carbon RDO seatpost
    WTB silverado saddle
    lastly Cytoe's lower link bashguard

    When you say full length cable housing do you mean from the BB to r. derailleur or the entire bike right from the shifter? I'm considering doing a bit of drilling this winter to run one piece of housing so I may be interested in your opinion.

    Nice build. You will love it.

    P.S.- There is nothing to be afraid of with the internal routing. Mine shifts light and smooth every time.

    I drilled out the little plastic piece down near the BB so the housing slides through.

    My 2012 Black RDO build

    I finally managed to build it.. my first Niner. I came from a Specialized Epic Carbon Comp frame 26inch.

    So far I really like it. I've yet to go out for a proper trail ride around my local loop. Only did a small ride this morning to get everything sorted.



    Build list is the following:
    2012 Jet 9 RDO size M
    Rockshox SID RCT3 120mm
    Light-Bicycle Carbon 29er Wide wheelset with Novatec 811/812 hubs (wheelset built by them)
    XTR shadow plus rear der.
    XTR front der.
    XTR shifters
    XT 28/40 Crankset
    XT 11-36 cassette
    XT brakes with 160mm rotors front and rear
    SLX chain (will replace this once worn along with the cassette)
    Specialized 2.1 Ground Control front / Renegade Control 1.95 rear
    3T Extendo LTD bars
    3T Doric team seatpost
    3T 90mm ARX team stem
    ESI chunky grips
    Specialized phenom gel seat
    Crank Bros egg beater 3 pedals

    i did a rough weigh (me on scales with bike minus me on scales) and i estimate the build to be 11.2kg as pictured

    3x front der

    Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, if it is then I don't know how to use the google machine appropriately. What front derailleur would I need to run for a 3x10 shimano drivetrain? It seems there are a lot of options for the 2x10 but not the 3. I promise to post pics as soon as she arrives. Switching from Jet9 alloy to the RDO. Couldn't pass on the sweet deals.

    Would this work? Shimano SLX M661-10 Oe Front Derailleur > Components > Drivetrain > Front Derailleurs | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    I hope so because that's the same derailleur I just ordered to go with my new Jet 9 RDO

    Any issues installing the Parlee PF30 adapter?

    I'm thinking of trying one with XTR cranks but they seem to market it as for road set-ups only. I believe external road BBs are something like 2mm wider than external MTB cups so I'm a little concerned.

    thanks

    Vegas Niner Specs

    I have had my Jet9 RDO now for a year. It has been great. I have raced it a couple times and mainly just enjoyed it as a weekend warrior.

    Specs:
    M Frame
    I9 Hubs
    Stans Flow Rims
    IKON/Nobby Nic
    Race Face Turbine Stem
    Niner Carbon Bars
    ESI Racer Grips
    Taiwan Seat Post
    Tioga Spyder Saddle
    XT Pedals

    The wheelset weights this bike down, however vegas trails are rough and can go from a decent cross country trail to a nasty down hill section quickly and I didn't want to have any issues with the wheels. I also weighed 30lbs more when I bought the bike. If I were to do it over I would have gone with the ArchEX rims.

    Total Weight w/pedals is just under 26lbs

    RDO pics!

    Build Question:

    I am about to build my Jet 9 RDO. Do I use grease or carbon paste on the integrated headset?

    Same question on the press fit bottom bracket - grease or carbon paste?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you please let me know what you mean? I don't understand installing it dry versus grease on the contact points. Thanks

    I pressed the non-moving surfaces (the cups) in to the carbon head tube and bottom bracket shell without grease. The PF BB was especially easy.

    But I apply grease to all the sealed bearings so the contact point between the bearings and the cups is greased, as is the contact point between bearing and crank/steerer tube.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics but finally finished up with just about everything. Hands down the best bike I've ever ridden in the XC/trail category. I have a 28 tooth ring on it now for long climbs, but the 32T is a little more versatile for majority of our trails. Currently weighs 23 lb 10 oz with a few stronger components...plan on getting a lighter wheelset for racing.

    Jet9 RDO Black Licorice - Large
    Rockshox SID RCT3 120mm
    American Classic All Mountain Wheelset
    Ikon 2.2 3C/exc/exo rear tire
    Schwalbe Rocket Ron 2.25 Evo Snakeskin front tire
    XX1 BB30 Crankset (swap between 28t and 32t ring)
    XTR rear der, chain, and shifter
    Sram XX 11-36 cassette
    XT brakes with ice-tech rotors and pads
    MRP 1x Chainguide
    Ritchey WCS Trail Bars 740mm
    Ritchey Trail Stem 70mm
    Niner Carbon seatpost
    WTB Silverado saddle
    Eggbeater 3 pedals w/ Ti spindles
    ESI Chunky Grips

    2012 J9RDO v1.1 Large, Fox Float 120 CTD, Stans Arch EX wheelset, XO 24/38 crankset, XO FD and RD, XX 2x10 Gripshift, Sram PG1070 12-36 cassette, XT Brakes, Easton Haven Carbon Bar and 70mm Alu Stem, Thomson post, WTB Pure V SLT Saddle, front and rear Conti MK 2.2's tubeless, Raceface crank boots, XTR pedals, Cytoe guard, full rear housing and latest Niner shift kit.

    25 lbs 11 ozs with pedals. Could lose a few grams trimming seatpost and steerer and using less tire sealant, all else stays for trail versatility.

    Huge thanks to this board for helping score a no brainer frame closeout, detailed cable routing discussion, and setup tips. Shakedown launch will be 18 hrs of Fruita, hope my wrenching is good enough to avoid dental work.

    RDO pics!

    24 pounds. I am surprised its that weight given I spared little expense:

    Enve wheels, post, bar and stem
    XX1 Drive train
    XTR Trail brakes
    Float CTD 120 Fork
    XTR Pedals

    When I make this set tubeless I guess I will crack the 24 pound barrier.


    Now I need to heal to ride it.

    That is a very nice build.

    When I make this set tubeless I guess I will crack the 24 pound barrier.

    Good looking bike. Mine came in at 23.46lbs(large frame). I assume your wheels are lighter but my fork and brakes are lighter.

    22.5 lbs!

    22.5! Do my Arch EX's, RS Revelation 120 fork, and 2x10 gearing really add 4+ LBS?! All else looks the same. oh yeah, I forgot the boat anchor I carry so I can drop it when I realize how fast I'm going.

    Mine has some pretty good gear on it & it's not down in the weights that some claim.

    Maybe I need new scales.

    Next time I am at the shop I will weigh and take a photo. Don't have a scale myself. The build has formula R1's (all titanium hardware), Fox float, and everything else as you see plus it's a small size. My medium Ibis SL is at 23.4 lbs.

    RDO pics!-img_1030.jpg

    I realize this breaks all kind of bike runway photos, but here it is anyway:

    Jet 9 RDO Medium V 1.0 Back in Black
    RS Revelation RCT3 reduced to 120MM
    Cane Creek 40
    Thomson 70MM
    Easton EA70 low Rise 685MM
    ESI Chunky Grips
    Thomson Elite Post
    Fizik Gobi
    Shimano XT 785 Brakes (160/160)
    Shimano 2x10 I-Spec shifters
    SRAM X9 BB30 39x26 crank (I'm old and need 22)
    SRAM Press Fit 30 BB
    Shimano XT E2 Front Der
    Shimano 780 XT Pedals
    Shimano XT 11x36 Cassette
    Shimano M786 Shadow+ Rear Der
    Sun Ringle Black Flag Pro Wheels set up tubeless
    Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.25

    I routed the rear cable housing full length along the brake line and then under the bottom rocker and then into the chain stay. I also have a Cytoe bottom guard.

    26.12lbs. First ride was finally today. Damn fast bike. Slow engine

    Can I get a close up of the rear cable set up? If I can't get mine to stop rattling, I may go that route.
