Hi there! Before spamming you with stupid questions and weird ideas I wanted to introduce myself properly. My name ist Joerg, I´m from Germany and got into FR two years ago thanks to a coworker. (Thanks Ralf, for having to spend lots of money on the bike not only once but constantly.. just kidding). So, honestly, since I first saw a Demo9 back in the days, I always wanted to have real DH rig. Of course I was after the Demo since then, but the 2010 model has a ridiculous pricing here in Germany, and when I stumbled upon the Rotec a few weeks ago, my engineer´s heart totally got me hooked on the four-bar design.. plus the company seems very genuine and sympathetic, and getting in touch with the company owner is not a thing you can do everywhere else... I already contacted John and Matt about this but I also wanted to hear about your experience and not overly waste their time.. so here´s the deal: I´m a 5´10" (179cm?) and am really unsure whether to get the S or M model. Taking into account other DH rigs´ geometry, I should get the S, but the wheelbase seems very short on this one. I learned from a handful of people that the frame has a very long TT, but I´m just not sure what to make of all this. Just for information, my FR bike has a TT of 23,2", but of course the stem is a little longer than on a normal DH bike... I think I tend to have the frame more compact, at least that´s what I did on my Spesh SJ FSR and my freerider. So, it would be great if you could just leave a comment about your body height / frame size, or if you want I´d appreciate any experiences with the RL9 as well. Thanks a lot and greetings from Japan!
