I'm looking at a used Niner RIP9 and I've done my fair share of reading on this bike. I've read that the Niner original design was not as good as their new design. What year did they change the CVA?

The CVA is different on all the Niner's, So no so much a redesign as a evolution as bikes change.

The CVA setup on the new 2013/ 2014 Rip9 (125mm rear travel ) is a lot better IMO than the 09-12 Rip9 ( 114mm ) & I spend a bit of time on both.

If you can afford to buy the new Rip9 that is the best one IMO
