RIP 9 RDO GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike by Niner
The RIP 9 holds up to its name as an absolute ripper of a bike that confidently slays big terrain without feeling cumbersome when you have to pedal to the top to earn your turns. If you're looking to up your game on double-black diamond trails or blazing fast park runs and want a bike that's stable and confidence-inspiring on fast technical sections, but doesn't feel like a pig to pedal on all-day epic rides, look no further than the RIP 9 RDO GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. Combining plush yet efficient long-travel suspension with balanced geometry and fast-rolling wagon wheels is an instant recipe for fun, and with a solid and value-packed SRAM GX Eagle build and Rockshox Yari fork, you'll still have plenty left in the bank for road trips to first-class mountain bike destinations or entry fees to regional enduro races. Niner redesigned the RIP 9 for the 2017 model year, increasing the travel and making it longer, lower, and slacker to keep it right in line with modern all-mountain oriented geometry. The frame uses Niner's stiff and lightweight RDO carbon fiber layup, as well as their patented CVA suspension platform delivering 150 millimeters of rear travel paired with a 160mm fork up front. It has the ability to accept 29-inch wheels as we have here on this build, or you can run it as a 27. 5+ setup for rock-crawler style traction and handling. With the bike's Boost hub spacing you can clear up to 2. 5in wide tires in the 29er setup, and should you make the move to 27. 5+ you'll clear 3. 0in trail rubber. Having a peek at its geometry numbers, you'll find the RIP 9 RDO hits a sweet spot with its 67-degree head tube angle that lends stability and confidence at high speeds or on steep descents, yet still remains nimble enough on climbs and tight trails. The longer reach numbers pair quite well with the wider bar shorter stem combos that are pretty much the standard for trail bikes these days, offering better handling at high speeds and plenty of room to shift...

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.
