    How'd you miss this?

    Review: Niner Bikes WFO 9 29er - Sick Lines mountain bike reviews, news, videos | Your comprehensive downhill and freeride mountain bike resource

    I also raced the above bike to 5th place (non-pro) in the BME Whole Enchilada race in Moab last year. The WFO rips.

    WFO is definitely that type of bike. It's comfy to ride long distances but burly enough to send big stuff. I rode it with the pictured Ringles in the race because I blew up a carbon rim right before. I was just borrowing the bike for the race, Toni from Sicklines is a buddy of mine. I usually ride a slacked out Jet RDO with light-bicycle carbon rims laced to 240s. Given your use, I'd probably opt for Flow EX's.
