Bill S.wrote a review of Niner Jet 9 RDO 2-Star SLX Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 on June 13, 2017
I demoed the 2017 Jet 9 in Park City and the following week I bought one. I feel this bike is the best Trail/Cross-Country bikes on the market with the 120mm setup. This is nothing like the old Jet, so those that have one, this is a new animal. The chainstays were shortened, the headtube went from 70 degrees to 67.5, and the BB is now threaded. In addition, it's boosted and you can run 3.0 27+ tires and 2.4 29er tires.
The Niner's CVA (Constantly Varying Arc) suspension design is what sold me on this bike. It felt great climbing and super playful on the descents with great mid stroke support. The longest ride I have on this so far is 3.5 hours, but I can't wait to get this out for a longer ride, I'm sure it will allow for all day comfort.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions on this or are interested in a custom build.
Saddle height is 71.5cm - Medium fits perfect.
