    So who's changing bikes because of the new colours.

    I like the new colours

    I'm thinking the Tang Rip9 is going to have to go so I can I can buy a Red one now mine is 1 year old.

    Then I can Keep the RED Rip9 up untill they make a Carbon Rip9

    Anyone else thinking of changing to a new colour ?

    Perhaps not for the color, since I like my white WFO... but the new head tube intrigues me a great deal. I would like to be able to play with the head angle a bit.

    new head tube?

    What are they doing to the head tube on the WFO? I see that the angle set HS does not work on the tapered forks.

    From the pictures it looks like they're going to the low-stack headset. So there sould be cups housing the bearings inside the tube to protect the frame.

    From the new photos of the Fridge Green WFO, you can see a Chris King Inset Headset. I was under the impression that all Niner tapered headtubes were integrated and therefore not compatible with Chris King HS.

    I believe that's what I heard also with a Niner Sales rep.
