    Paint me green with envy! I just bought a RIP9 last fall and can't justify the upgrade with now, but don't mine me while I drool on my keyboard over the picture.

    Awesome! Give us your impressions once you've had time to ride it out on the trail.

    When you see the bikes they don't just look like a longer travel Jet9 RDO, The tubes on these things are monsters next to the Jet9 RDO.

    Nice! What size is that? Hmm... 6.45lbs? I thought it was supposed to be sub 6lbs. This is almost 1 lb more than the TBLTc and Spider 29er Comp. Still, 24.5 lb complete is great. Uhg, I sound like weight weenie

    Wow, 24.45 lbs? I can't get my Jet 9 RDO under 26 lbs! I guess my RS Revelation is a heifer. Where in the world did you find a SID 29er with 120 travel? What are those grips?

    I just can't see mine being any lighter than 27Ib

    Mine has got XX1 & Dropper post but runs a lighter fork than the Fox 34 ( 140mm Reverlation )

    I have Hans Dumpf front & rear.

    OP, can you measure your BB height. I'm interested in a real world measurement, thanks! Hoping it's 13" or over.
