Niner RIP 9 or DB Sortie Black 29

Hi after a prolonged search this would have to be the better deals out there right now. $3850
the rip dont come with 142 back add $120 that they quote me = $3970 $4200 (new, special deal through my company)

I know they dont have the exact component one being XT the other XTR but considering frame design what would be the best do it all kind of bike.

there's not a lot of talk about the DBack sortie black 29 but I think is for the retail of $6500
this is a review I found

what you guys think, thanks!

Between those two, I think you better go with the Yeti SB95.

Lovin' my RIP. The 135mm rear is enough for my riding capabilities, it's awesome set up 2x10 and probably be perfect with a dropper seatpost (my next purchase). With a TALAS fork and a RP23 shock the RIP is a great chassis for all day, all mountain rides.

Have you test ridden both?

If you could dig deeper in the wallet, the RIP RDO, Ibis Ripley or Pivot 429 would be mo betta!
