    More XS offerings from Niner?

    Now that Niner is offering their E.M.D. 9 in XS, when can we hope to see other models in this size, especially something with full suspension? I'd love to give an XS R.I.P. 9 a spin...

    This XS size is larger than S frames in 26er. Why 26er sizes are smaller, shorter with more standover than 29er ones?

    Are you seriously still asking these questions after all of these years? Toe overlap doesn't solve itself, and with a longer a-c fork, the headtubes can only get so short. which means that the top tube leaves the seat tube at steeper angle towards the headtube and increases standover.
