Sarah Savalawrote a review of Niner RIP RDO 29 4-Star Mountain Bike - 2019 on September 11, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Niner might not be the most popular and sought after bike on the market BUT this bike impressed me!
From green flowing trails to double black chunk gnar, this bike handles it all.
The Geometry is not as slack as I am used so it took me a few laps before I felt comfortable, especially when it came to steeper descents. The Rip 9 handled jump trails really well and I felt extremely comfortable in the air and on small drops. Again, I believe the geometry was a factor for me on technical trails as I felt like I might fly OTB when it got steep.
All in all, this bike pedaled really well, cornered easily and made me smile on Jumps. This would be a great choice for someone looking for a versatile bike that handles almost anything with ease.
