    X Post: Frame: Niner Air9C RDO vs. S-Works SJ HT

    I know that asking this in a Niner dedicated forum will yield biased responses, but since I'm leaning towards the S-Works, I don't mind the bias.

    I've always wanted to upgrade my frame (SJ Carbon Comp HT) to either one of those and I think I found a decent deal on ebay for a 2011 S-Works SJ HT frameset. And by selling off the fork, crankset, and my current frame, I could possibly break even.

    However, a part of me feels like I should wait for a Niner to pop up.

    So thoughts, feedback, opinion?

    Tough call on two really nices bikes. I've had both and now a jet9carbon rdo. I liked how the air9c climbed but loved how the stumpy handled. Bottom bracket options on the niner are convenient. I'm sure you'd be happy with either, I'd ride them both again but won't give up my jet rdo ;-)
