We know, the thought of a 27. 5-inch specific frame from Niner seems odd, but truth be told, we'd much rather see a frame designed specifically for each wheel size instead of compromising a frame to accommodate both sizes. And while modern long travel 29ers are infinitely more playful than the wagon wheel bikes of yore, it still can't match the agility and playfulness of a proper 27. 5-inch trail bike. Enter the RIP RDO 27. 5 3-Star Complete Mountain Bike, an all-new 3rd generation RIP designed to slay technical trails while packing plenty of innovative features like Rib Cage construction for added stiffness, increased standover height and room for longer dropper posts, a high/low flip chip adjustable geometry, and 140mm of re-tuned CVA suspension. This particular model gets FOX Factory suspension and a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain rolling on Stan Flow wheels with updated, progressive geometry for modern trail bike handling. While the old RIP had a dual wheel size persona, the new RIPs are frames dedicated to each wheel size. This allows Niner to optimize the frame for each wheel size by dialing in the suspension kinematics and geometry specifically for each size eliminating compromises. Either way, you're getting 140mm of CVA rear travel that's sensitive off the top and supportive in the mid-stroke paired with 150mm of fork travel and clearance for 2. 8-inch tires with room for mud. This is the longest, lowest, and slackest Niner ever created, however, with the inclusion of its adjustable geometry via flip chips at the seatstay pivots, a Niner first, you can make adjustments as needed for your terrain and riding style. The high mode geometry is perfect for tamer trails and daily riding. You'll quickly appreciate the climbing and pedaling efficiency of its steeper 75. 8-degree seat tube angle and reworked CVA suspension platform. On the way down, you can shred in confidence with its longer reach, slack 66-degree head tube angle, and a 37mm, reduced offset ...

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.
