    RIP9 in Tang

    I just saw the color option on the website....anyone have a complete pic of the RIP in the Tang color, whether its yours or off of a website? I am in love with my current 09 Jet9, but I have always thought it might be nice to have a bit of extra travel...not I am thinking it might be nice to have a bit of extra travel and that sexy tang color......

    I love my jet9, i love my jet9, i love my jet9......but a rip would be pretty cool to own too...not that my focus is DH racing, i guess i really dont need an xc rocket.....i love my jet9

    Still wet paint though and I doubt Niner's done anything to improve the durability of their wet paint Won't buy another Niner that's wet painted, only Ano or PC, it just chips/scratches so easy - all you have to do is look at it too hard and whamo.

    Sorry Paul, had to do it.

    Did I mention 12mm MAXLE compatibility on the RIP9's?

    I've applied 3m clear bra to the down tube and common rub spots to keep it looking brand new. First experience with the stuff, pretty nice and easy to apply.

    I could fit a really nice REd Ano 10mm Hadley Through bolt hub on that back end, and it would look tits, I bet.

    Some how, after talking to you last week while you were in L.A. I get the feeling that that ended up as a Carry On for the flight back to Denver.
