    My 2013 nimble 9

    Hi guys,
    Fnished building my N9 a month or so ago. Was playing around with the cockpit a bit and didnt want to put a photo up untill i was happy.
    It is a budget build and parts will be swapped out when needed.
    I am a big guy so saving weight was not/is not a consideration....was looking for reliability. Details as follows
    N9 frame 2013 (large)
    Revelation dual air 130mm
    Slx Brakes with 160 mm rotors front and rear.
    WTB I23 rims
    Tyres - Ardent( front) Crossmark (rear)
    Thomson 410mm layback seatpost
    Kore 60mm stem
    Funn 810mm handlebar
    Esi Grips
    Set of old worn hollowtech cranks
    Wolftooth NW 30 tooth chainring paired to an X9 derailleur with a 11-36 Sram cassette that has the 17 taken out and a 40 one-up on.
    I am very happy with how it turned out, and am totally blown away with how it handles.

    Looks good!!! Nothing like a clean and simple build to ride. You will enjoy every ride out on that machine. Only thing left to do is...finalize your stem height and cut off the extra steer tube..

    Thanks...I like its clean look, and you are right about the stem and steerer height. I am planning on a few more rides to double check it is where it needs to be and then i will cut it.

    Damn good looking twins.
    That secret is becoming a favourite past-time for my kids and the neighbours kids......They like nothing better than to put the bike outside on a weekend night, stand next to it (all of them with torches in their hands) pick a spot on the bike, shine the torch for a couple of minutes and then we turn the torches off and we all stand there looking at it glowing in the dark.
    I promised them popcorn this weekend.
    My wife thinks we are nuts.
