Awesome Niner Jet 9 RDO. Total weight around 25.5lbs. This thing is sick and will be the best looking bike on the trail no matter where you ride. It is light, strong, fast and very adaptable with adjustable (95/120) front fork. It will embarrass anything you could conceivably purchase new for even double my asking price.

This bike was always ridden with a reasonable degree of caution, as this bike was purchased and built in my mid-40's which is too old for crazy stuff. I rode it 1.5 to 2 years, then developed some health issues....I had hoped to get back to riding but now realize it's not in the cards. This bike was thankfully never wrecked, and stuff like jumps were never attempted.

This bike is a dream to ride on fast rolling trails, but is equally adept with more technical trails, steep stuff, whatever.

Carbon Frame size Medium (Niner Medium's = more of a Medium/Large)
SRAM XX brakes
SRAM XO shifters
SRAM XO cranks mounted with a 24tooth/36tooth/chainring protector configuration for a shifting and mechanical advantage...I'll explain to those interested. Standard front XO double shifter.
Kashima coated highly tunable Fox suspension front & rear FLOAT RP-23 and TALUS 32 -- see picks
Mavic Crossmax ST wheels with very few miles, perfectly true
11/36 10 cog rear cassette
Time ATAC carbon pedals
Ritchey WCS carbon bars
Ritchey WCS stem
Thomson seatpost

The gearing is much better suited for riding in the Carolinas than a typical double setup. It also shifts better and rides more smoothly with less need for extreme cross-chaining. The suspension on this can be tuned however you want, and front travel length can be changed on the fly to ride either as a quick handler (95mm) or more relaxed and forgiving 120mm front fork travel.

Tire tread is good. They just need some new Stan's. The seat is old, but you'll want you're own favorite anyway.

I'll take Paypal, cashiers check, or wire transfer. If you are serious, send me your cell # so that we can discuss on phone.

Thanks for looking!
