    Snatch. Great flick! I actually saw it in the theaters in Madrid and had to read the spanish subtitles to understand some of the accents in the movie.... and I am a native english (american) speaker.

    Is anyone running a 35mm length stem on their Rip9? If so, what are your impessions and what bar length are you running?

    I'm running a 150mm Pike and 780mm Atlas bars with a 35mm stem. The front end is a little lofty, but I feel like that's a good thing where I ride.

    Nice build. I have a green one too, these babies rip. I had a blast on my week old RIP on National and Mormon last night on SoMo. Jumps so nice with such a soft landing. I have racing ralphs from new and now I dont like them on chucky rock they feel too soft (maybe the high thread count) and very little side grip. On soil they are probably fine. Back to Nevegal's for me, maybe the Nobby Nic should get a try though.

    I have a set of RR for mine to & they just are not up to the job, I do quite like the 2.35 Hans Dumpf front & 2.35 Nobby Nic on the rear I have for it also.

    I also tried the 2.25 Nobby Nic on the rear but found that I can load up the rear of the bike so much under hard cornering that the lighter side wall made it fell like I had a flat tire & I had to run a lot higher pressure in it than the 2.35

    Looks great! Funny, I thought I was the only one who Armor All'd the tires and waxed the frame.

    Yeah I ran higher pressure last night, way more than normal. 10+psi higher. At this pressure though I lose traction in soft decomposed granit that we have in AZ. I should have had the bike shop swap them out before I used the RR. Oh well.

    Aha!!! I am running Nobby Nics with a 2.35 front and 2.25 rear and I was wondering why I keep checking my rear while I'm riding. If I am on a chunky climb I sometimes get an "oh ****" feeling then when I look down/back at it I see it's fine. The rear is wearing out pretty quickly so I will prob replace it sooner than later but not sure with what yet.

    Nevegal by Kenda

    I used to run these on my Pivot429 and the new steed RIP9 came with RR. They felt too soft and not enough grip for my taste of trail. So back to my regular tire.

    The RIP9 Setup Thread (all years, forever and ever)

    Will my 2x (converted to 1x) XT crankset from my Jet 9 RDO transfer over to a RIP 9 RDO without any issues?

    I would assume so given it can take a 2x to begin with.

    I purchased a medium XT build in September of 2013. The revelation in the box had black stansions with white sag indicator markings. I upgraded the fork to the Pike 140 and never installed the revelation. The bike fully built with Shimano M520L pedals and green slime in the tubes (a bit too much I may add) weighed about 30 lbs on my bathroom scale. My thinking on this is the 4lbs+ my own weight varies from morning till night is greater than the margin of error from my scale.

    Is anyone running Easton Havoc 35 carbon bars? I'm currently running the 31.8 version but I think I'm going to switch these to another bike and was thinking of running 35 bars instead

    You guys should try running wide bars with a short stem. I am running 750mm bars with a 50mm stem on a medium frame and really like the setup. It make the bike very lively and flickable
