RKT 9 RDO 3-Star XT 1x Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Niner
If you've ever caught yourself daydreaming deeply about the perfect bike on your way home from a ride, building one in your mind from the ground up with XC energy, a spirited disposition, but the ability to crush lines most assume are off-limits for the XC set, you're in luck. Sometimes, dreams do come true. As an plush XC bike with a podium-chasing attitude, the RKT 9 RDO 3-Star XT is a shining example of what pushing the limits of XC looks like. Let us clarify.

Boost spacing allowed Niner to chop the chainstays to a stubby 439mm, which when paired with that low standover height, results in agile cornering and power-transferring stiffness. When the opportunity to spend a weekend chasing your armor-clad pals and their 5-inch monsters around rugged singletrack presents itself, one look at the RKT 9 RDO will be enough to tell you the answer is yes. Though geometry is a big part of the RKT 9 RDO's story, its carbon frame cannot be overlooked. Niner uses its RDO Carbon Compaction System (CCS) to ensure details like wall thickness and material distribution are flawless, el...

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.
