    Jet 9 RDO, Where to buy

    I'm looking for a new Jet 9 RDO. Size medium in Tangerine color.
    Gonna build it myself, so not really after a total bike purchase.
    Tangerine seems quite difficult to find. Anyone point me in the right direction.

    Looks like hammerhead bikes is only online dealer that has one in stock.
    What say you?

    No longer made. If you can find one snatch it up. The old RDO is the new Jet 9 carbon and theres a new RDO version.

    Yep. Knew that the new jet carbon is the old RDO. I'd like the new RDO but I really, really don't like the green color.

    Hammerheadbikes just lowered the prices on the Jet RDO to a smoking deal. Scott Robertson is a pleasure to do business with. I bought one from him a few months ago. What are you waiting for?

    Oh, I see. You are looking, not ready to buy. Maybe you should ask once you are ready to buy. When do you get your annual bonus? Maybe it will be the additional $1,000/$1,300 it will cost you to get a new Jet Carbon/Jet RDO if you keep waiting. FWIW, the new Jet 9 Carbon is not completely the same as the Jet RDO V1.

    Not trying to be an a$$. If you keep waiting they will be gone. Now is the time!!!! Do it man!!!! Not trying to get you into financial difficulty, but these prices will not last forever, and you already said you REALLY don't like the Green RDO (nor do I), the RDOV1 has the better rear shock, colors, and pivot bearings.
    I have never seen prices this good on a $2,600 frame (which now is $2,800 for the new RDO). You can pick one up from BigKahunaCycles for $1,500 shipped and you can get many places to price match........such as HammerHeadbikes.
    Stop looking and buy your dream bike!!!!!!!!! If you don't do it now, it will be this time next year before the prices go back down, and I doubt they will go down this much ever again.

    Thank you.
    Big Kahuna doesn't have the tang or a medium in stock "per their website).

    So you have looked at BikeBling, CompetitiveCyclist, Speedgoat, etc.? There was a thread in the Niner Section where people posted where they picked theirs up and whether or not they came with a headset. There is a RDO V1 which has an Inset headset (such as a Chris King Inset 3) headset and a RDO V1.1 which comes with the Integrated headset. The Integrated frames generally included the headset and the Inset headtube frames do not. Many of the dealers do not know this, so you should make sure of this before you buy.

    Didn't even think about the headset. Thought all of the frames would come without one. Thanks for letting me know
    All shops listed above are either sold out (Speedgoat & CC) or don't have the Tang color.
    Bike Bling is a bit higher on price. Anyone know if they price match?

    Hammerhead is out of stock on the Tang. Also stated that he can no longer get that color.... Crap.
    They will, however, have a white one in and will include the integrated headset...
    Never owned a white mountain bike before.
    Decisions..

    As you know it is black and white. To me it is the best color with Black being second and tang 3rd. I like them all and almost went with Black, but the white looks great with a white fork, possibly a white stem and not to mention blue and red scattered about on the bike.....QR, seatpost clamp, stem cap, spoke nipples, etc.
    I am pretty sure bikebling does price match, might as well call them and ask.

    Bike bling doesn't have any white mediums in stock either. Looks like I'm stuck waiting a bit longer.

    Just talked to Chris at Big Kahuna. Their shop is about 10 mins away from me.
    Another shipment is in transit to Niner. Chris has a number of the frames on order including Mediums in both black and white. $1500 + $35 shipping. He expects to receive them in 2 weeks or so. I just helped out my brother in NorCal with full XT build, Stan's Arch EX wheels, Niner stem, bars, seatpost for $3700. I wouldn't hesitate to give Chris a call(720-981-5199) .He's really easy to work with and great deals.

    Yeah, Chris is great. I went in his shop last year to demo a RIP9 - I didn't wind up buying the bike but the service was very good - even gave me a set of 29" tubes in case I had a flat. (I think i was supposed to return the tubes but I forgot! Oops!) They also threw on my clipless pedals for me. I've been eyeing those Niner RDO's for some time as well I'd think I would need a small for my 5'7" height tho pity.

    I called him earlier today, told me to check the website in couple of weeks.
    Looks like I'm stuck in a holding pattern until I can find a white one in my size.

    I would like to publicly advise jfitzem of how annoyed I am with him for causing problems within my marriage. If I hadn't seen this thread then I would not be wanting to buy an RDO frame so badly. Therefore my wife would not be mad at me for wanting to do so.

    Darn you jfitzem!!

    No worries my friend. Besides, since I have three daughters I'm fairly used to the feminine type being peeved at me for one reason or another.

    Thanks for the heads-up though.

    Geez....You guys are making it very difficult for me to keep from cheating on both my wife and my 2011 Epic with the RDO. And the orange.......mmmmmm.

    I've been thinking lately that college may be overrated and maybe my daughters won't really need the money in those accounts. What do you guys think?

    epiphreddy was right,
    I've waited too long. Been trying to purchase a RDO for last couple of week, Waiting on an order from Hammerhead bikes.
    HH isn't getting any Jet RDO's in. Bike Bling is sold out. Guess I'll look at another bike.

    If you can hold off until Friday give Chris a call again at Big Kahuna. I know he was expecting their shipment any time now. They are moving to a bigger space over the next couple of days but will be open at the new shop this Friday

    Finally!!!
    Outside Outfitters received a White Jet9 RDO today and I was able to order. will ship next week.
    Big thanks to Scott at Hammerhead Bikes. Although he was unable to get an RDO in my size he was extremely patient and helpful. If Scott had the bike I wanted, I would've paid more $$ just to work with em. Good guy.

    Congrats!!!! I think the White one is the best color anyways. Since you are building it up yourself you can pick and chose colors to complement it in a lot of different ways.

    Call Big Kahuna bikes first thing tomorrow. Other than that, Jenson is selling the frame and fork, but they will not budge on the price.
    Good luck

    looks like I missed the boat. Big Kahuna and Hammerhead are not receiving their shipment and they are already sold out of M's. If anyone can find a M from a local dealer that will ship and get close to their pricing, let me know. appreciate all the help

    That sucks. Missing out on closeout sales on discontinued older models. New model gets 142x12 and new colors and what else? Prob not 600+ more worth. I looked, but only found BikeBling's listing for L and XL frames in black and white, and their website is notoriously bad at matching currently inventory.

    Hammerhead seems to have some showing available on their site. Not sure if that's accurate or not. 100OFF seems to work as a coupon too.

    SWEET, I received my Medium White RDO today. Cycleworks is building it. Build is XT kit with Hayes brakes and American Classic tubeless wheels (with the new thru-axel adapted rear hub).
