    If you buy a set, you will not be dissapointed. They are incredibly fast. I haven't had to touch a spoke!

    I'm planning on putting a lefty on my "new to me" small RIP 9 soon and will have the Project 321 tapered lefty adapter, but I'm curious as to which is the best headset to put on it. I would appreciate any input.

    More RIP9 love!

    My first 29er:
    2011 Rip9 med. frame built up with good stuff.
    First iteration with Rock Shox Reba Team 120mm
    and standard air can on the RP23.
    BB was 13.3 and I needed to run about 40% sag to get full traval.
    Still liked the bike.
    The RIP9 Setup Thread (all years, forever and ever)-p1020185.jpg

    Second Build (and the best IMO)
    Fox34 Talas 140mm AND HV air can for the RP23.
    BB is 13.6 in. and I can run 25% sag and get most of the travel 90% of the time!
    Absolutely love this bike. It rocks and rolls the up and downs now!

    I also put a fox34 talas 29. Worlds apart from my previous fox 32 talas 29 in terms of plushness. 220 rider here, with 105psi pressure, can't seem to bottom it out. With my fox32 pressure should be around 130psi so as not to bottom out the fork, but ride is harsh n hard. Swapped it out n never been happier with this upgrade. Put my fox 32 on my chuba hx2. Swapped it out you won't regret it. But stancion of your 140mm fork should be 34 or higher not the 32.

    Camaleon what drop-outs are you running on your Rip9?
    Besides going to a 140mm fork up front with a thru axle
    you can also convert the rear drop-outs to a thru axle set-up if your hubs can be converted.
    You can either go 142x12mm or 135x12mm drop-outs for $89. (they are back ordered right now tho!)
    I think this is even stiffer than a 135x10mm bolt set-up.

    Rockin' the Chinese Carbon AM rims from light-bicycles on my RIP. Wheelset weighs 1540g which is not too bad for an AM wheelset on the RIP. Nobby Nic 2.35's and it's official - carbon rims continue to be game changers.

    Thanks for the info.
    I am running 9mm QR in the rear and 20mm true axle in the front fork.
    My hubs are ZTR so I will loll in to the rear axle conversion.

    I have a line on a good deal on an RIP9 frame, size L, but I'm trying to figure out how the fit's going to work out.

    I'm confident the reach will work for me, maybe with a 60 or 50mm stem. The only thing that has me slightly concerned is standover clearance for The Gents. I'm 6' even, with an inseam (shoes and all) of just under 35". I should have plenty of seatpost showing (planning to run a 100mm dropper, and that should fit without issue), I'm just a tad concerned about top tube clearance once I slide off the front of the saddle.

    Anyone with a 34.5-35" inside leg riding a large RIP9?

    I'm 6 ft & have about the same inseam, & had the Lge Rip9 & there is a heap of stand over.

    What seat height do you use ?

    I have about 7" of seat post showing on my GT, which has pretty much the same seat tube length. About 30-30.5" between BB center and top surface of saddle.

    See photo above of my size XL RIP with a 120mm fork that I ride. I've got about the same inseam as you (35) and have no clearance problems on the size XL. I'm pretty sure the size L will be fine for you in terms of standover.

    Thanks, all. Sounds like it's going to be well worth a test ride.

    6 feet flat here with 34 inseam riding on an 09 RIP9. There's a lot of breathing room for the jools. There should be no issues there.
