    Seat tube angle lets you put your seat in proper relation to the pedals. Too steep and it won't pedal well on the flats. I guess if you're either going up or down, a super steep seat tube angle would work pretty well.

    I've been riding my Ros 9 for a few months now. It's been a great bike.

    Zero Cycles Jackalope frame. AM hardtail, built for a lifetime of fun.
    Currently running 26" wheels, waiting for 650B parts to come in.
    I run the Pinion on my touring bike, it's been solid. I like the gearbox enough that I built an AM frame around the same drivetrain.
    No more dealing with cassettes, derailleurs, and everchanging axle and BB standards is awesome.

    I'm loving this bike. It's a little hefty, but man it rides great - especially downhill.

    You "might" just want to check the QR on your fork axle, it is not supposed to point forward, carefully read the manual that came with your fork, it is very specific about where the release should be/point and how to adjust it.

    Ahh - thanks! I knew that was not preferable but I didn't know there was an adjustment.

    Ergon GE1 grips
    DMR V12 flat pedals
    Bell gel seat (hey, it's better than stock)
    All else is stock, but I may go with a 1x10 drivetrain...just not really feeling the need for it, though. Dropper seat post will be added for sure.

    Niner ROS 9. Heavy frame, but was able to finish the build under 26 pounds without sacrificing much strength
