    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.

    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?

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