    Yes some have mentioned XTR's are an issue. I think I remember 1 person said they worked.

    does anyone know if the ardent 2.4 fits when you have a chain guide on? Also what stem was the bike designed around?

    Just put one on my N9 this week. I have had it for a while, but it was on another bike. Definitely smooths out the ride a bit and looks great!

    Is that a after market chain ring and if so what size?

    It's an On-One Stainless ring, seen here:

    It's a 33t ring. It's pretty cheap and seems well made. Thought I'd give it a try

    2.4 will fit with a 28t Blin gRing and the MRP guide. However I'm sorry to say that without modification the MRP guide will not work with the seat post mount. If MRP provided the ability to rotate the angle of the sliding bracket back then it would work. I plan to machine the angle into it to mount it.

    Jenson USA has the 3x10 170mm set for $349, that's where I got mine from...

    I had to replace my RF Deus cranks - I cracked the LH arm at the spindle...

    To be perfectly honest, I can't tell a huge difference in ride quality (vs the Thomson Elite it replaced). There's maybe a slight improvement, but its so slight it could be placebo effect. Maybe I'll be able to tell on longer rides (or maybe not), but I still really like the post. Looks boss for sure.

    Put the Thomson back on for a ride, and you will feel it. The difference is amazing.
    Where in MD are you? I am seeing more and more Nimble9's in MD.

    This may be old news, but Canfield has medium Nimble 9's back in stock. I've been waiting for one since July. Just ordered a lime green. Can't wait to get cracking!!!!

    After a few more rides, I'm starting to feel a slight improvement. Its not 100mm of travel, but it reduces fatigue a bit over a few hours.


    I'm just north of DC.

    Why not return or sell it and get the correct one (direct mount) ? The direct mount is lighter too.

    Already tried it, won't work with a 28t... I did ask them to confirm this one but they were wrong... I may sell or return it and just get the Paul's unit.

    Take a Shimano ZEE Derailleur and you won't need an ugly chain guide any more



    Front is a Surly SSP chainring which works fine with a 10x chain

    I finished building my small orange N-9 yesterday. Single speed, with a 100 mm fork. Would have gone 1x9 but need to buy cables and figure out a chain guide first. I may end up just using a bashwich instead. All I had to use is a 110mm stem, so I'll probably need a shorter stem too. Really looking forward to using the bike in the woods here.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll add that to my list seems similar to the Paul's unit.

    I might have to check out the Zee deal. Seems like a different way to go, wonder if it works.

    Cool, did not know about that. Also wonder if it works. Not to mention compatibility with my x9 shifter... Which I'd rather not change.
