RIP 9 RDO SLX Fox Complete Bike - with Stans Wheels by Niner
Easily the most capable machine in Niner's line, the RIP 9 RDO SLX Fox Complete Mountain Bike blurs the line between aggressive trail machine and brawny enduro sled with its steamrolling 29er wheels paired with 150-millimeters of plush CVA suspension and a long, slacked-out geometry that screams of confidence when the trail gets fast and rowdy. This particular version is kitted out with the workhorse dependability of a Shimano SLX drivetrain, alongside a 160mm Fox 36 Factory Fork for rock-devouring confidence and a RockShox Monarch Plus RC3 shock for luxury car-like plushness out back. As you'd expect from modern trail bikes pushing towards the longer and slacker end of the riding spectrum, the RIP 9 RDO has a long-reach, roomy cockpit paired with a shorter stem for quick-handling confidence when you're maneuvering around trail obstacles and cleaning tight switchbacks. The 67-degree head tube angle gives the RIP 9 RDO a balanced feel that's both confident at charging bigger lines, yet one that retains nimble handling along sweeping berms and tight sections of trail--both areas where long-travel 29ers are usually lacking in adeptness and skill. Another figure to note is its relatively steep 75. 5-degree seat tube angle, which places you in an optimal position to lay power down on tricky climbs. Another aspect of the latest redesign for the RIP 9 RDO lies in its ability to accept the voluminous rubber of 27. 5+ wheels thanks to its Boost rear axle spacing. Increasing the rear axle to 148mm enables the RIP 9 to readily accept massive 2. 8in tires should you feel the need to add another wheel size to your riding arsenal. If you're content with the provided 29-inch wheels, you'll find it easily clears a 29 x 2. 4in rear tire, which defines the new standard for aggressive trail riders seeking a balance between rolling speed and grip. Despite all of the changes above, Niner's Race Day Optimized (RDO) construction process remains the same as previous versions and model...

Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers.

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.
