WesBwrote a review of Niner RIP 9 RDO 27.5+ 5-Star Eagle X01 Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 on October 5, 2016
I recently had the chance of spending time on this bike in Moab. I rode the 29r version and really had a good time on it. Im 5'10 with a 33" and rode a large which was fairly agile but could have gone to an XL if I wanted more stability. Overall I felt the bike is a big improvement over the previous model. The bike handled very well over moderately technical trails and the extra travel made a big difference on very technical trails. Even through the bike has more travel it still climbed as good as any other bike in its class. Down hill the bike felt very stable and I was able to pick lines on the fly with ease. This bike is definitely a good choice for the enduro racer as it is stiff with a balanced geometry but its also fun for long epic type riding and comfortable for hours in the saddle. I would buy this bike for sure!
If you have specific questions with the bike or need to check inventory feel free to reach out to me direct. Im always happy to help!
