I paid $4144.11 USD for this frame (and saved $1556.86) as I bought it through a friend in Colorado, who is a friend of a shop owner who got ten Jet 9’s in on a deal and blew them out.  I also got a wicked ‘bro deal’ on the build, nor paid tax on the bike.  In total, paid at the time with the exchange, was $4265.33 CDN.  Buying this same bike in Canada, after taxes and duty, would cost you in excess of $6500.00. 

Based on the seven rides I had on this bike, the exchange rate, no taxes or duty paid and deal I got I am selling this bike for $4100.00 (firm). 

Reason for selling: I’ve ridden hartail the past five years, the last four on rigid single speed.  I thought that I was ready to make the jump back to full suspension and gears, but it just wasn’t for me.  The bike is an amazingly fast descender and climbs like a caffeinated mountain goat.  I'm going back to full rigid.

E-mail (under my profile dealie --------> ) me if interested.

Folks, I can highly recommend this ride. I've owned my Jet 9 for almost 2 months now and its by far the fastest bike I've ever ridden. It rides like a rocket ship! Unless your hard sold on a rigid hardtail like ol Big Ring, you won't be disappointed.

After hearing you had bought your full suspension 29" ... I decided to climb on the big ring bandwagon and picked up a Santa Cruz Tallboy in Vermont ... best decision ever!

What can I say Goat, I haven't become soft and can still ride a rigid! LOL

Thomas - that's a wicked bike and was in my top three.

A little secret...a building of a single speed is happening as of this week. Suss fork to begin with until another carbon fork comes to hand. It'll be my back up and Thursday Night Worlds Cruiser.
