    Medium black ano frame and shock weight

    I just weighed mine two weeks ago before building it. 6.5 lbs on the nose. It could weigh 9 lbs and I wouldn't care if I could only run a coil shock on it. I have tried my best for two years now to like air shocks and forks but they just aren't for me.

    Hey thanks! My bike came out at about 33 lbs when i was hoping for what seems to be the average of about 28-29, but it still rides great and im not that worried about it... I was just curious and wanted a comparison # to other frames. Ill have to ride a bike with coil fork/shock to see the difference sometime, ive only ever ridden air.

    I might be a special case but.....

    I have had only coil shock/fork bikes in the past and I also weigh 225 lbs. I like how coil shocks and forks load up when trying to hop over stuff on the trail. I also like how they are more naturally progressive through their travel where I find air shocks ramp up to much and I wind up having to compensate to much with rebound to keep the shock from springing me off the bike. I have tried many brands and types of air shocks/forks and all I can think of is my old coil bikes. I should have gotten the WFO with coil shock and a Marzocchi fork. I was headed in that direction but I was steered away by Niner and other RIP riders. I should have done more research into the frame to see if I could have put a coil shock on it also. In the end it is my fault and now I need to see how I can sell my three ride old frame and fork and get a WFO and fork. I know there are a lot of RIP owners out there that are as happy as can be with their bikes and I have to agree with them in saying it is a awesome bike. I am just looking for something different and I hope the WFO is it or I am going back to hardtails.

    6.5 LBs????? This must be an older Rip. I have a 2010 Rip and it weighs closer to 8 Lbs I think. My 2010 Jet 9 weighed 6.5 Lbs on the nose. I have them both built up very simiarly and the Jet weighs 27 LBs and the Rip weighs 29 Lbs.........both Mediums.

    Butter.

    First let me say that I'm 6'6" 205lbs and the 2011 XL RIP 9 fits very nicely. Coming from a XL Gary Fisher Paragon it's a major improvement in terms of fit.

    This is my first FS so I have nothing to compare it to. I can say that it's so buttery smooth it blows my mind. Set up with the sram 2x10 (26/39) it begs to be pushed. Niner carbon bar, tapered headtube, 20mm thru with Hope/Flows makes for one hell of a stiff front end. Not the lightest bike coming in just shy of 29lbs, but never once has that crossed my mind on the trail.

    She likes to go fast and makes me a better rider.

    Thank you Niner.

    Almost there

    I'm about a week away from having my RIP9 finished. I've gotten just about everything in except the frame...I hear that this is a fairly important part to have... I'm 6'1-6'2 and surprisingly enough, I'm ordering a medium frame (raw silver). Always riddern a large 19"-20'' in the past and expected a large on the RIP also. Anyways, here's what I've got so far:
    2011 Med RIP9 raw silver
    Fox Talas terralogic 120mm
    Cane Creek headset
    Thomson X4 stem (silver)
    Handlebar...???
    SRAM XX 2x10 crank
    SRAM XX f/d
    SRAM X9 mid cage r/d (red)
    SRAM X9 shifters (red)
    Stan's ZTR Flow wheels
    Kindshock i950 remote dropper seat
    Avid BB7 brakes (185 front, 160 rear)...taken from my last bike and hey, they work great

    That's what I'm working with so far. Don't know what handlebar to get yet...I'd like a red one to match the rest of the components but I'm having trouble finding a good lightweight (prefer carbon) red one that is wide enough (680-700mm). Plan on upgrading hubs to Hope Pro 2's (red) down the road. Any suggestions please feel free.

    Roll in peace...

    2010 Niner RIP9 Med.Tang Fox,XT Dynasys,Stans' Arch

    I posted this same frame with a Truvativ Stylo crank in Sept.2010. I was riding in Nov.and was getting a creaking when ever I would hammer real hard. I bought a XT dynasys crank and then front and rear derailer,then shifter pods, thinking it must be the Stylo. Well it dawned on me after the creaking was still there that the rear dropouts were not completely tight.That was were the creaking was coming from all along.The bike is silent now and I really like the Shimano dynasys even in the soft sometimes sloppy Ohio Spring.

    XTR 180 mm cranks
    Fifteen G bash ring
    Magura Martas
    Sunline V1 handlebar, 711 mm, 19 mm rise

    How "all mountain" is the rip? Niner claims that 4.5 inches of travel feels like 6inches of the 26er. Making it a legitimate all mountain machine. question is how true is this?In my opinion, it is much safer to say that a RIP could be a 29er counterpart of a 26inch Turner 5 spot?Am I right guys?Thank you!
