Hi,
Just sold my 5Spot and Im looking for a 29FS. Im 6'2/240lbs and consider the RIP9 or Sultan. Anyone got experiences with those two compared to each other? Should I go for a 2014 RIP or will a 2013 work fine? I think the 2014 RIP looks better than the Sultan. Is the CVA as smooth as the DW?

Go straight for the 2014 Rip9, They are just such a big step forward from the 2012/2013 model.

I have a friend your size & he rides the 2012 Rip9 & is much faster on my 2014.

The DW is good, The CVA on the 2014 Rip9 is awesome, It just gets the job done.

Do your self a favor & put a pike fork on it & a good set of wheels.
