cruso414 said:Just curious, why would you want a coil spring on a RIP? Not being a [email protected], just wondering why anyone other than the downhill crowd runs coil shocks anymore. Did the frame come without a rear shock or did you remove it? I have considered changing the rear shock on my Jet9 for something else without a platform if I ever have a problem with the RP23, I just think that the platform is useless on CVA bikes. I have used mine a total of once to see what it felt like, didn't like it.
cruso414 said:Lynx, have you got your shock set up really soft or something? My friend who has a RIP never uses his propedal either. I have mine set up as fox recommends by using 25-30% sag. Do you stand a lot when you climb and maybe looking for a hardtail feel when climbing. I have found that when I climb (seated or standing) the bike feels as though there is a cantelever driving the rear wheel into the ground the harder torque you give to it. The only full suspension bike that I have ever had that climbed anywhere close to the Jet is a Maverick ML7.
its amazing that you know every single owner of RIPs in the world to be able to determine its the second person. what would Ninerbikes do without you?LyNx said:Looks pretty darn nice :thumbsup: what's the setup there besides what we can easily see? Not so sure on the saddle being AM "approved" though You're the 2nd person to try a coil on the RIP9, will be interesting to here what you think.
Fo, go get your two cups of coffee this morning and don't come back to the keyboard until you've drank them both and gone on a pee break, OK? :nono:FoShizzle said:its amazing that you know every single owner of RIPs in the world to be able to determine its the second person. what what Ninerbikes do without you?

Let's not go there... Show Fizzle is renowned for trolling for naive Brook trout on bike websites. His nickname is Show Fizzle due to his nature of building blingy Show bikes, riding them a couple of times, and then his interest in them Fizzles, so he put's them up for sale or tries to piece them out to recoup or make money on what he's spent on themLyNx said:Actually I head the RIP9 users support group for Niner
It's amazing how much you troll other forums you really have no interest in :skep: What's wrong, slow week, didn't get to fire a couple hundred hard working employees with families and then go out and buy yourself some stupid expensive toy to celebrate what a great job you do
and none is more guaranteed to be caught that Niner's own LyNxRandyBoy said:Let's not go there... Show Fizzle is renowned for trolling for naive Brook trout on bike websites
