Ernesto,

I take it you like the RIP 9? Probably not going back to a HT? I've been toying with racing a JET 9. I could build a sub 23lb one by simply swapping the parts from the F29.




@Maxrep - I guess you mean me. Yep I love the RIP and the FS is much better for my body - so I'm going to use the parts from the EMD9 to build a FS for my son. I was going to build a JET9 for myself with the parts but logic tells me the lightweight frame is not built for a Clyde.
BTW - That build would make for a sweet JET9.

My sweet baby

This is my sweet little IndyFab 29er SS. She has on some new rubber now Ignitor-front and Crossmark-rear. I love this bike so much that my Moto-lite is a poor dejected little lonely soul

Nice Niners! I'm thinking about converting my SIR9 to a SS and picking up a JET9 (1x9) when it comes out. In the mean time I'll add my ride/picture to the NINER clan:thumbsup:

Fresh build, zero miles as of 2 days ago. After yesterday's 38-mile break-in the stem has been dropped down and everything else is dialed in.
I'm new to this forum as this is my first 29er. I've done some reading here and there...don't seem to be a lot of Orbeas mentioned. It may not be as sexy as a Niner or Salsa Dos, but it works pretty well for me. I like being unique.

rode it today. maiden voyage pulling Annabel in her trailer up the Glacial Drumlin trail. A total of 20 miles with a 34/17 seemed like it took forever, but riding with Sarah and Annabel made for quality time on a lazy Sunday.
Ernesto, What happened to the Rock Lobster ? Still have it? It is one of the coolest rides to ever grace this forum.;)
