When Niner rolled out the redesigned RIP 9, everyone wanted the grey and blue colour, including us. So we got a couple in as demos and the first people who took them out called from the trailhead after their first ride to buy them from us. So we need another one to demo. Unfortunately at that point everyone wanted the Santa Fe sand colour and they were on backorder, so we only just got it in the shop! Also unfortunately, Matt likes it and it’s now his bike that you can borrow whenever.
The bike is low, long, and modern.
And since Riley put it together, it’s unique and custom. Note the topcap! We’re out of the first run of the splatter caps, but a new batch should be ready in a week or two.
Our friends at Tenet Components make a gnarly 9-degree sweep bar that Matt is crazy about and it pairs really well with the 2k19 trail bike geometry.
And god, that paint is so beautiful! This bike shreds Tokul.
