JET 9 RDO 29 2-Star GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Niner
Bouncing back and forth from XC to trail can be tricky on your race-geometry rocket, and many trail bikes are a bit too-slacked out for the agility you want when spinning around your local XC trail network. Enter the redesigned Niner Jet 9 RDO 29 2-Star GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. Redesigned for 2018, with slacker angles than before, so you can send it down gnarlier trails and gobble up rocks that would have sent you flying in past years, this trail-ready bike combines some of the agility of its XC jet-pack roots with the growing demand riders have for longer and lower geometry to dominate the whole mountain. When things started out for Niner Bikes, it was apparent from the name alone that their founders had a strong belief that 29-inch wheels were the superior mode of transportation on a mountain bike, and their designers more or less defined the category of proper 29er geometry. This particular 2-Star GX Eagle build holds true to those roots, but allows for the flexibility to swap to a whole new tire size all together, the 27. 5+. It comes stock with Niner's own 29-inch alloy hoops, so you'll have the quick rolling readiness of a 29er, but with the coming of Boost 148mm rear hub spacing, the hub is widened and creates the room you need to throw on a smaller rim with a beefier tire, should you be feeling experimental, or just want to find out what this whole 27+ craze is all about. The latest update to the Niner Jet 9 RDO frame moved the speedy XC race geometry, and gave it a bit of a makeover to make it a better all-around trail bike for sending it on the whole mountain. An additional 20mm of travel was added to the Continuously Varying Arc (CVA) rear suspension, which brings the total to 120mm, and added the ability to swap back and forth between 29er and 27. 5+ wheels. The headtube moved a bit slacker, the seattube steeper, and the reach stretched out a bit longer, making the Jet 9 a much more trail-hungry beast than in previous years. For those worrie...

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
