    Nice looking bike .

    I would really like to own 1 of them as well, I have the a Rip9 RDO with XX1 & carbon wheels.
    In the past I have let anyone that has asked if they could take it for a ride go for a play.

    But now there is just a bit to much money tied up & the bike is in a way less relevant to what they would build for them self.

    I would love to ride 1 & see just how close they are to my bike, I'm thinking that with a similar build they would be closer than some would think.

    Enjoy your bike, I also am surprised just how light it has come out at, That green is awesome.

    Got my rip in a few days ago. Love it so far. It is huge upgrade over my previous bike even though I was worried about the extra travel it does not seem to have many disadvantages. It's a small with x7 groupset. Bought the 1 star build at my lbs. It weighed in at 28.5 pounds without pedals. I was expecting it to weigh more with those components and no carbon it would weigh more but I won't complain.

    I just finished building up my new/used Niner RIP 9, size medium. I haven't put her on a scale yet, but using my other bike (Blur LT) as a comparison I'm guessing it weighs 28-29 lbs. I haven't taken it out on any real trails yet, but I will soon!

    Frame: Niner RIP 9, medium, raw
    Fork: Manitou Tower Pro, 120mm
    Shock: Rockshox Monarch 4.2
    Wheelset: SRAM Rise 40
    Tires: Nobby Nic front, Racing Ralph rear
    Brakes: Avid Elixir 5
    Drivetrain: X9
    Crankset: Truvativ Stylo GXP

    Yep, I put small bar ends on all of my XC/AM bikes... it helps with the climbs here in Colorado.

    Curious to know what those are. Would they work with ODI grips?

    They're Serfas Stabilizer bar ends, I think I got them from Jenson USA for $15-20. They work great with ODI lock-on grips; the grips you see in the picture are ODI Rogues.

    I just got a new RIP9 alloy. I moved all the parts over from my 2010 RIP - I know this bike deserves much better parts than I have to put on it, but its what I have, with two kids in college I really can't afford upgrades right now.

    Hope Hub w/Stans Flow in back, XT in front
    XT rear derailleur
    White Brothers Loop fork (140mm)
    STX cranks
    Nevegal tires
    Reverb Dropper
    Avid hydros

    I don't have much time on it yet, but I will fix that in the coming weeks

    Well, they said that the RIP9 is a one bike that does it all. Well, I am taking that literally. Got an extra wheelset and plugged in a 700X32 slicks. This will do until I get myself a hardtail frame. LOL.

    Once again, sweet ride, Ally. I traded in my Fox for a Pike. Re-shoot of mine on the way, too. Are those Ardents doing what you want them to? What kind of trails are you riding? I'm thinking of going with some lighter tires, myself...

    I have an opportunity to snag this 2010/11 RIP9 for what *seems* a great price. I'm a bit of a noob though, so would appreciate input.

    I'm 5'10-11,178 lbs. which seems to put me right in between sizes. This bike is a Large. I currently ride a 19" Scott Spark which feels a bit cramped and too light/race oriented (crazy, I know). I ride 2-3 times a week; single track and fairly technical stuff. I want to ride a bit more upright, so I'm willing to make the Large work if the price is right.

    So what's this bike worth?

    2010/2011 RIP9 Raw
    X9 grip shift and derailleur
    XT brakes
    Raceface Forged crank
    Easton Monkeylite XC bar
    Reba Fork
    RP23 Rear suspension

    I'd say $2400 is a solid price for that. What's he offering it for?

    I just sold my 2012 with Fox 34, full XT, KS Lev, and Arch/Hadley's for $3000.

    I would love to try the Pike but my Fox 34 Talas 140 CTD Kashima 2013 works well for me.

    For the Ardent, Yes, best tire I've tried. Rolls well and grippy. I have the Racing Ralph and Crossmark on rear before but not good on wet conditions speacially on roots.

    Trails here are mostly technical except Track 15 Nature Trail.
