More capable and versatile than ever before, the all-new RIP RDO 29 3-Star Complete Mountain Bike from Niner might lose 10mm of its rear travel, however, this vastly improves its pedaling and climbing ability, while its significant geometry updates more than make up for the travel reduction and still make this bike a beast while descending steep, blown-out trails. The frame also receives refinements including its Rib Cage construction for added stiffness, increased standover height and room for longer dropper posts, a high/low flip chip adjustable geometry, and a retune of its famous CVA suspension platform. We're really excited about this 3-Star build as it comes spec'd with FOX Factory suspension by way of a supple 36 fork up front and smooth DPX2 shock out back with SRAM's workhorse GX Eagle 12-speed offering the same wide gearing range as its range-topping XX1 and X01 groups. 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. 6-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 44mm, reduced offset fork. If you have some shuttling or bike park laps ...

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
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.
