    Hi I'm running 2x10 on both my Rip9 & Jet9 & love it.

    26-39 is awesome on the Rip9.

    Which cassette are you running on the RIP? Do you find the gearing good for climbing? Thanks.

    Hi
    I really was not sure how I would find the steep hills & went with the 11-36 cassette,

    I have been very happy & I think the mind set has changed because I used to use the 22 front & 34 rear often & now with 26 front & 36 rear I'm having no problems pushing it.

    In fact I now find it easyer than I did with the old setup,just spinning to fast can wear you out more.

    The Jet9 has Rotor cranks & run 30/39 with 11-36 cassette & were I find problems with that setup is whe I catch someone on a 26er spinning the granny gears on very narrow single track were you can't get past & have to drop to there speed & that then makes it very hard.

    I have the same old 11-34 on the back, and I find I can climb just as well. I think I'm burning less energy on fighting the bumps, so I have more tiger in the tank even with the taller gear.

    Way nice looking ride.

    Is that the first ever RIP we've seen leaning against an old out house? Which is ŗ propos when talking about gravity and dropping....

    Round 2

    Someone RIPped off my first bike, so here's its replacement. I'm still waiting on a set of Industry Nine Enduro Wheels with black hubs, rims, and red spokes.

    That bike needs a white saddle, for balance.

    Otherwise, fantastic. Nice use of the white rims to tie it in together with the fork.

    Here's mine. I got it from the bike shop fully built - it was a demo and had a summer of rides on it.
    Probably the only thing really bugs me is the hubs, but I guess I'll see if Shimano got their collective stuff together or not (they didn't for the last set of XT hubs I had!).

    I'm just a tad under 6 feet tall with 35" inseam.

    Medium RIP9 in black
    Mavic rims on XT hubs
    Avid BB7 Brakes
    SLX drivetrain 2x9 w/bashguard
    Fox FIT RLC fork
    No name flat bars
    Thompson layback seatpost

    On my crappy bathroom scale its right under 30 lbs. I freaking love this bike. Waiting for the trails to freeze so I can get back out there.

    Oh and it has the magical ability to stand up on its own...

    2+ years old and still chugging along

    Here's my 2008 version overlooking the Palouse on Tower Mt. in Spokane, WA. Currently weighs in just under 30lbs. with the following setup:

    XL frame (I'm 6'2" and it feels right)
    Titec Ithys Gove saddle
    Hope Pro II hubs laced to Stans Flows, running tubeless (great wheels)
    9-speed XT shifters/cranks/cassette (ActionTec 20 tooth Ti granny - love it)
    Avid Juicy 7's (7" front/6" rear)
    Thomson seatpost and stem
    Manitou Minute 120 (internals updated to latest by Hayes, but it still dives in the corners)
    Easton lo-rise bars (tried the Niner flat bar but it just wasn't working for me)

    Still love the ride but am starting to dream of carbon. Would be nice to drop a couple of pounds off the bike without going to silly-light, flat-prone tires.

    My first build ever. All I need to do is air up the tires and add pedals. I was a manufacturing major in college and wanted to build a bicycle frame for my senior project, but settled on the design and manufacture of a collapsible set of bicycle rollers, which I used for about 5 years. So, this was a fun project.

    Frame: 2010, bought on discount
    Shock: Reba RLT Ti, 140mm, 20mm Maxle
    Drive train, Cranks: SRAM X9, 2X10
    Cables: Jagwire
    Brakes: Magura Louise Bat, setup motorcycle style (ride/rode street and dirt bikes)
    Rotors: 180 Venti front, 160 SL rear
    Stem: Thompson 90mm
    Bar: Niner flat bar
    Seatpost: Thompson
    Seatpost clamp: Hope
    Hubs: Hadley, 20mm front, 10mm TA rear
    Rims: Flow
    Tires: Ardent front, Igniter rear
    Grips: ODI Ruffian Lock-on
    Saddle: Fizik Gobi XM

    Any updates on the red spoked wheelset? Thinking of this with a raw colored frame...

    What About Marzocchi

    I have searched everywhere on the internet and I cannot find one rip9 with a Marzocchi 44 fork on it. I am looking at a 2011 Marzocchi 44 micro ti tst tapered 120mm to put on a rip9. Is there a reason that I am unaware of that people are not using this fork except on the wfo9?
    According to Marzocchi's site it is adjustable from 100mm to 120mm to 140mm with spacers. It is about a half pound heavier than other forks but it seems to be the most versatile fork out there for a all mountain fork at this time. Talk to me people. Enlighten me.

    Cheers
    Robert

    The Reba fork is a better fork from all the reviews I've read and from others I've talked to. The Marzocchi fork has sticking issues and a 15mm thru axle. I understand that the Reba fork is stiffer with a 20mm axle and has smoother travel.

    Here ya go, Marz tst2 setup at 140mm(non-tapered steerer). No sticking issues, but did swap oil with a Redline mix @~15wt when I removed the spacer. The 15mm feels plenty stiff, up there with the 20mm TA on my IH 7point3.

    I'm using the 44 too! I got a good deal on the fork but didn't have a bike to put it on...so I went ahead and got the RIP9 frame.
