    N9 for bikepacking...

    I don't think I've seen threads discussing this particular application, but please direct me if I'm wrong.

    I've been using a Voodoo Bokor 29 for the past 8 months and am curious about the N9 as a replacement. The main use of the bike will be for commuting/touring/bikepacking/singletrack. Many frames fit that bill, but I'm looking for something more unique.

    I've heavily considered a Jones DF, but would rather stay with a frame that can take a suspension fork.

    i will likely set the bike up with a rigid salsa fork and 2x9 drivetrain.

    yeas, nays or thoughts otherwise?

    This guy has his built as a pack bike. Nice setup but required some special parts to mount the rack. Turned out really nice.

    Yes, it works great for bikepacking... and endurance races.

    I used blue tape to protect the thin paint.
