    starting my RIP 9 build

    My first build. Learning a lot as the build slowly comes together. I had to wait about a month and a half for the wheels. I hope it was worth it.starting my RIP 9 build-mtbr2.jpg

    can you lay down a list of your kit? I'm thinking of getting a RIP and I'd like some input on the system. Thanks.
