    Who's riding a current Rip 27.5?

    In my search for a new ride I completely forgot that Niner makes a rip with dedicated 27.5 geometry. While looking around I'm finding that none of the online retailers carrying Niner are discounting any frames like the previous version. It seemed like a few months after the 2017 Rip came out (orange frame) retailers were dropping prices pretty deep. Is the Niner brand coming back to the point that their frames and bikes are in demand and they don't feel the need to blow out inventory?

    But I digress...

    So who took the plunge and bought into the new-Niner and picked up a 27.5 version of the Rip? I'm trying to narrow down my search between Ibis, Santa Cruz and Niner now.

    After riding a DW link suspension, I personally donít think I would go back to a CVA suspension.

    CVA does not climb as well and descending, itís not poppy and playful. When I push my Ibis, it just dares me to go faster. My old Niner just didnít seem to have the same zip...

    I also found that retailers simply were not stocking Niner product. Niner showed the stuff available, no retailers seemed to be ordering it...
