RIP 9 RDO 27.5+ 2-Star Complete Mountain Bike by Niner
When you're ready to up your trail game, the RIP 9 RDO 27. 5+ 2-Star Complete Mountain Bike from Niner is poised to help you not only tame the gnarliest terrain across various trail networks but also let blast through chunky rock gardens and ledgy drops at speeds you didn't know were possible. While Niner dropped the previous WFO and its Jet made the move to more of an all-purpose trail machine, the RIP 9 was able to stretch its legs and bump its squish up to 150 millimeters of smooth, enduro hungry travel while it's slack and long geometry numbers also follow suit.

That Boost spacing allows the rear end to clear up to 3. 0-inch tires in 27. 5+ form, offering tons of traction over looser terrain, or if you choose to roll 29er guise, it'll clear up to 2. 5-inch tires which are quickly becoming the de facto width for its ability to offer excellent grip and quick rolling. Taking a look at the numbers, you'll see the RIP 9 RDO features that goldilocks 66. 5-degree head tube angle for high-speed stability on steep descents, without pushing the front wheel so far out in front that uphill switchbacks require trial s...

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.
