Hello, Please help me decide what frame to get for the fast approaching XC season. I've narrowed it down to the Air9 RDO or the FUJI SLM 29....I can't find much info on the fuji frame.

Thanks in advance

Well, different frames are available in different countries......I'm no expert on what's available in the US!

I think the RDO is too new to have much feedback on. Beautiful looking bike though. Is the Highball not on your list? What about a Scott Scale 949? Foundry is coming out with a new 29er with a frame MSRP of $1399 and production weights that are coming out around 1100g.

the mind boggles, a 29'er frame for <= 949 g!!!!!! :shock:

aren't 29'er frames bigger than equivalent 26er so that is pretty good going over the 988 which was 26er frame (at, yes you guiess it 988 g). I wonder if and when we will see a mass produced strong and reliable hardtail frame at under 900 g?


place your bets now ...

The reason I'm mentioning the fuji and Niner specifically is because I like the geometry and my local dealer carries both. The Scott may be crazy light but with the tubing shape it can't be as stiff laterally as the 2 I'm considering

The niner Air9s have really great ride quality. I would assume the air9rdo has very similar ride quality as well. Don't have much experience with fuji's bikes as of lately. If your LBS has them built up, ride them both.
