I have been helping a friend build up a Rip9 Alloy ( Well 2 of them,His 13 year old son is getting 1 to.)
As I have lots of parts hanging around I offered to build it up in lots of different specs, So he could try first.
He has only been riding MTB's for 5 months so didn't have much of an Idea what worked for him.
We started off with Sram X9 2x10 with 22/36 front rings & 11-36 rear cassette & have ended up with Sram XX1 with 28 tooth front ring ( We are doing some steep climbs & he doesn't have much bike fittness)
We have tried many wheels & forks & the finished build will have I9 wheels & a 130mm Reverlation fork, I'm fitting the fork in the next hour before our ride today.
He is 5'11 & 205 Ib & the bike is a Med.
