RIP 9 RDO 27.5+ 2-Star GX Eagle Mountain Bike - 2018 by Niner
Some were surprised when Niner eschewed from the wheelsize that has emblazoned its downtube since their inception. The truth is, 27. 5 Plus' overall diameter isn't that different from 29ers and the added girth makes them so plush, and so grippy, if they fit in the frame and fork, why not try them out' Along with the redesigned Jet, the RIP 9 RDO 27. 5+ 2-Star GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike sees many upgrades including the ability to work with dual wheel sizes and more modern geometry. Slacker headtube, longer reach, and wheelbase, and steeper seatube have the new RIP 9 willing and able to gobble up steep chunder and daftly pick a line through tight, technical singletrack. This build gets SRAM's workhorse GX Eagle drivetrain, KS LEV dropper post, and Rock Shox Yari fork and FOX Float shock for all-mountain trail and enduro performance.The frame's versatility comes courteous of the Boost rear spacing. By widening the dropout spacing to 148mm, Niner was able to find enough clearance at the bottom bracket to shorten the chainstays by 11mm. The other trick in modern mountain bike geometry is to steepen the seattube to properly weight the front end and place you, the rider, in a more powerful pedaling position. Niner goes 2. 5-degrees steeper and this helps the big bike pedal way better than a 6-inch bike should. Dropping the post when going downhill gets the saddle out of your way for added control and confidence.The short rear end keeps the bike nimble, but with a 66. 5-degree head tube and 170mm of FOX fork up front, it's doesn't mind plowing down the trail and offers a comfortable margin of error if lines get a bit hairy. The longer reach and short stem keep the handling intuitive, despite the aggressive demeanor, and you'll quickly learn that you can huck into some pretty gnarly terrain and get out of it intact.Despite the changes to the geometry Niner continues with their patented Constantly Varying Arc (CVA) suspension platform and Race Day Optimized (RDO) c...
