Mine has some ugly welds and I think the top tube has been flared too wide where it meets the seat tube. Tyre clearance for a WTB 2.4" isn't there for me, even though it is suggested a 2.4" tyre will fit. A 2.4" Trailboss has 2-3mm clearance either side at the chainstays.

    The quality of mine is OK, it's certainly mass produced but they are a nice light steel frame. This is the 3rd Cotic hardtail to come through my workshop.

    Agreed on tyre clearance though. These wheels are off my Riot and clearance is tight with a 2.35 Ikon with a 35mm ID rim. But that's about as big as I'd run in the rear anyway.

    Put it together tonight using parts off my Soul. Need to cut the steerer, fit a longer chain and some faster rolling rubber before a shakedown spin

    Someone needs to represent the dark side
    2009 Caffeine, x9, recently moved to a SunRace CSMX3 11-42t, and swapped out the 28t chainring for a 26t, and went to a Maxxis Minion DH DC/EXO 2.5 in the back. Turns out my rear wheel isn't dished correctly, which became evident with the fatter tire, so only going for a short first off-road spin before the lbs opens, and then get that attended to.

    Ritchey P-29er
    When I realized I missed out on the Niner S.I.R. 9 (3 Star) and the Salsa El Mariachi GX 2 x 10 I was a little distraught. I wanted a steel hardtail but wasn't ready to build one up myself. Considered going oversea's and picking up a Shand Bahookie with an XT build but got lucky browsing the Ritchey website. For whatever reason put their P-29er on sale & I didn't hesitate. Was more than pleasantly surprised when I got her out on the trail. Great build, excellent logic II tubing...Couldn't be happier I have been converted to a Ritchey rider for life!!

    Highball C
    After few years of riding Salsa Selma, I finally could afford a nice racing bike and I picked Santa Cruz Highball C due to its geometry. long top tube and short chainstay with shorter stem for better handling. I absolutely love this bike. Will upgrade wheels whenever I can to get the rolling weight low. racing in sport level, hoping to do well this year!

    Funny man, I could have written the exact same post. I love the bike. Its so different from the 26" NRS1 Ive been riding for 10 years. Both are M size, but the Niner feels a full size larger, but still very manageable and nimble. It feels like it plows forth, with the wide bars and 29" wheels, in a way thats refreshing for me. I also appreciated the steeper head tube angle, because I ride a lot of tight turn, tree-lined single track, thats like slaloming on skis, but with little leeway for error. Im running 1X10 with a RF chainring on the stock cranks, and getting a dropper post delivered on Tuesday, which should take it all to the next level. Cheers!

    New Fuel EX 9 P1 on order!
    I just ordered this one via Project One. I should have it in 3 weeks!
    Ordered the base wheelset since you cannot order without wheels.
    My ProCaliber has Enve M60, the Top Fuel has Enve m60 HV, so I'll use the spare XXX for now on the Fuel Ex.

    I'll put up actual photos in a month or so if all goes as planned. Let the waiting begin!

    Finished building up a Kona Honzo Ti frame (medium) and rode it on some gnarly trails here on the BC coast. It's a very capable bike. I'm running a 150mm Fox 36 with MRP ramp control resulting in a slacker frame (66.5). Other bits in the build:

    - XX1 11 speed drivetrain with shimano XTR 985 crank - 30 tooth Dropstop Wolftooth
    - Chromag BZA bar and stem
    - XT trail pedals
    - Easton 29'er XC90 wheelset
    - Easton Haven seatpost - replaced by a Reverb after the pictures where taken
    - Michelin Wildgrp'r 2.35 front; DHR rear
