JET 9 RDO 27.5+ 2-Star Mountain Bike - 2019 by Niner
Few bikes have the ability to bounce between XC duties and a fun everyday trail bike quite like the Jet 9. It's just as happy jumping in a midweek cross-country race and tackling a backwood epic with your buddies on the weekend. While many will remember the Jet moniker as an XC machine, Niner decided to create the RKT as a dedicated cross country racer and make the Jet a bit more trail friendly by relaxing the angles for a bit more confidence while sending it down burlier trails and helping to increase your speed and confidence. It still retains the agility from its XC race roots and blends the ever-growing demand for longer and lower geometry for more fun up and down the mountain. If this sounds like the bike for you, throw a leg over the JET 9 RDO 27. 5+ 2-Star Complete Mountain Bike and enjoy a plush ride with the added benefit of increased traction with big tires. With a name like Niner Bikes, it's easy to see what wheel diameter its founders favored, however, it would be at least a solid decade before plus wheels and tires would emerge. It turns out that plus tires are pretty darn close to that of a 29er, so the geometry and suspension platforms that Niner tirelessly worked on and optimized for bigger wheels, works well for this application too. This 2-Star GX Eagle can obviously swap back and forth between sizes and we think having a plus setup for trail and a 29er for racing isn't a bad idea. It comes stock with Niner's own 27. 5+ alloy hoops, so you get the high volume and traction hungry footprint and Boost 148mm rear hub spacing with its wider hub flanges creates the space for either wheel size and the ability to shrink the chainstays. Coming in at just 434mm, they tuck the rear wheel up underneath you, so you'll find better climbing traction and agility for flicking the bike through tight switchbacks and trees. As we mentioned above, the Niner Jet 9 RDO frame moved from a more dedicated XC race whippet to a better all-around trail bike for endurance ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
