COLOR: COLOR: (MOONDUST)
model: JET 9 CARBON
While Niner was working diligently on giving the RDO model some key updates for the next season, thankfully they chose to keep that original design platform in their lineup of full-suspension bikes. It has now transformed into the basic level Niner Jet Carbon 9. The key items to note here, are what you don’t give up: Same carbon fiber frame with same geometry, along with being very close to the same weight that functions exceptionally well on the trail. This regular Carbon version shown here received the standard cartridge bearings and uses the lower priced FOX shock to get it within a middle class price. They have also chose to keep the QR rear-axle, and even continue to use the ti-frame guards!
They have been slightly changing things up a bit by busting out the monotone paint details. To begin with they will offer the Jet 9 Carbon in the color (Moondust) with the complete bike and the newest 2013 Shimano SLX drivetrain goods. The front suspension duty will be handled with a Rockshox Recon Gold 4 inch fork. The bike will come standard with their in-house brand alloy bar and post with a WTB Volt seat, and roll the bike with an American Classic wheel set, and Schwalbe Tubeless Ready Racing Ralph tires. The price will be $3,899 USD for the total bike, which sounds like a great deal. – A recent update is that these complete bikes are now available here at Competitivecyclist.com… Enjoy! But as the article is now updated, that pricing has been discounted down to $3019.00 USD, while supplies last. Get them before their gone..

THE OTHER EXCITING NEWS
Both of these Carbon full-suspension bikes will now be available with the X-Small Jet 9 frame size for ’13, now being able to fit much shorter mountain bikers. Niner engineers have have also worked hard to draft up and make the stand-over height for the X-small at 26.5 inches, along with a shorter 22 inch top-tube length (effective that is). Which simply means very awesome news for all of you female mountain bikers out there, finally some more options for Carbon and some tasty 29ers to say the least.
