    How much heavier have Jet 9 RDO frames gotten?

    My reference point is a first generation Jet 9 RDO. Love the bike but after five great years I'm just waiting for...

    Since then it seems there have been a few different versions of the frame, and I'd assume that it has gotten heavier with time? Does anyone know with any certainty how the current frame weighs in in comparison?

    What with the breakage issues of the folowing year, the other "carbon" offering and more recent addition of treadded BB and ISCG mounts and more trails oriented geometry changes, I can't imagine it's really the same animal that I'm used to. I'm cool with more slack HTA, just not with much more frame weight.

    Hence my cautious interest in the RKT...

    The RKT is more similar to the old Jet 9 than the new Jet is.

    Old Jet RDO is roughly around 5.5 Lbs, new Jet RDO (mine at least in size medium) is 5.7 Lbs. Depending on what tires you use, how much sealant you have in your tires, you might as well call it a wash. I have the older Jet RDO and the newest one, and they both weigh the same built up for all practical purposes.
