There are some people who will ride trails like this rigid, I am not one of these people. The Nimble 9 is great in chunky rocks with it's slacker angle, dropper post, longer fork etc. It's still climbs well, and rides lighter than it is. I tend the ride the Jabber places that are a little smoother, more flow etc. The few times of the year that I actually race I will ride the Jabber. For pure XC the Jabber rock, when I ride the rocks I like the Nimble 9. If I had to choose one bike it would be the Nimble 9. Luckily I don't have to choose:D
Two SS builds ... Hooked on SS
Just discovered SS this past summer....love it.
RIG, is a gem! Haha can't fix the upside down picture...I blame the new iPad. Cheers

Just picked up my warrantied frame from the shop they built it up for free! Have to make a few changes like the seat and the handlebars will be lower. Saved me the hassle of looking for a new race frame for next year. Loving the TeamBEER ebb.
I want to get my hands now on a Vanna White Niner RDO fork.
