Although it's decked out in a camouflage paint scheme, the Niner RIP 9 RDO Mountain Bike Frame is anything but stealthy as you crush every steep line in sight, hit berms at high speeds, and throw stylish whips in the bike park. The RIP 9's bold colorway is sure to garner the attention of everyone from hikers to seasoned rippers as you harness riding aggression into blazing speed on steep descents and across technical stretches of trail.

For this particular version, Niner adds internal cable guide tubes to make cable and housing installation a whole lot easier for DIY mechanics building up their dream bike.

In 29er form, you'll find it clears the 2. 5-inch tires becoming increasing popular for their gobs of traction and smoother feel over unruly trail sections. Delving into its geometry, you'll find the RIP 9 RDO features a relatively slack 66. 5-degree head tube angle that keeps you composed and confident at high speeds and on steep descents, but without pushing things into overly slack realms like many long-travel 29ers on the market. Niner retains the longer top tube of the previous version as well, which pairs well with wide bar/short stem combos used for increased stability and ...

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.
