Seeing the previous JET 9 RDO 29er was a resoundingly successful trail bike that pleased riders with its balanced handling traits and confidence-inspiring feel over technical stretches of singletrack, the newest version of this bike remains practically the same, as to retain this trail-pleasing formula. You'll find the only changes for the 2018 JET 9 RDO 29 3-Star Complete Mountain Bike is a refreshed color scheme that's available in a stunningly bright Slate/Orange or stealthy Licorice colorway, as well as internal guide tubes that make cable installation and maintenance easier than before. Other than that, it's entirely the same as the previous 2017 JET 9 RDO, which is a good thing if you're seeking a do-it-all trail bike with 29-inch wheels for steamrolling rocks and roots standing in your way.

Adding 30 millimeters up front would typically force you out of the bike's center; however, the new Jet 9's geometry keeps you on top of the pedals while the included dropper post allows you to clear out some cockpit space so you can throw the bike around on descents. The bike's updates shine at the front end, too. The previous generation JET 9 was limited to a 71 or 70. 5-degree head tube, depending on whether you were running a 100 or 110-millimeter fork. For 2018 (as configured here), it drops to 67. 5 degrees. This gives the JET 9 greater stability at high speeds and enduro-esque confidence on steep descents.

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.
