    14 med rip rdo to 16 med jet rdo

    Has anyone gone from the older 2014 Rip RDO to the newer Jet RDO staying with the same size frame? I have the med. 2014 Rip RDO and just order ordered a newer Jet RDO. Am I going to be good with only maybe some minor adjustments to maybe stem and bars?
    The reason I wonder is the slacker seat tube on the Rip compared to the Jet. I really need to scoot forward on steep climbs to get over the pedals better on the Rip and it makes my "tushy" sore!

    The old rip is only 9mm longer than the new jet. But the reach on the rip is 3mm shorter. I'd think you'd be so close between the two the difference is negligible.

    Thanks terrible, yeah the numbers were close so I would've been good>
    I decided to just keep the Rip RDO and get an SMP seat with the drop down front so I can "butt crack" the steeper climbs with a little more comfort!
