As you read in our review, we were big fans of Niner's R.I.P. 9 RDO, the previously released carbon version of this bike. This new aluminum version retains many of thing that made the carbon model awesome, like new linkage shapes that increase strength and stiffness, a pronounced asymetrical lower link to make room for ISCG tabs, larger pivot hardware, and a switch to 8mm alloy shock mounting bolts. We'll be putting this model through the wringer as well in the coming months. Is carbon better? We'll find out...
