    How are your springs rates compared to the recommendations in the manual? I haven't had a chance to ride yet, but I'm curious. I'm about 230lbs and I'll be running a 500 or 550 lb spring per the CCDB table.

    I can't complain but as it turns out my frame showed up about 2-3 weeks early and will be delivered to me Tuesday. I'll post pictures when I finish the build.

    A large red M9 arrived at my place this afternoon. It is absolutely beautiful and I can say I am extremely impressed at the quality and workmanship of the frame. It is just about built up but I will post pictures after I get my brake lines replaced.

    Nice! Congratulations. Curious to see how you get the e13 to fit.

    Thanks a bunch. The e13 fit very well without any problems or modifications. The upper guide is close to the rear triangle but doesn't touch at all. When I post pictures I'll post some of the spacing as well as the clearance.

    is anyone running a double barrel air on their m9 yet. i am buying a m9 in 2 months and want to know if i should just get the bike with one on it since it is 150 bucks to upgrade in stead of getting it with the coil then going air later

    Many are happy with the CCDB but I could not get along with it, Saying that, it might be perfect for you..? Take your time, do some research and look into your options. There are plenty out there.

    no one is yet. they just started shipping OEM shocks and customer shocks are shipping on the 15th....i should hopefully have mine soon after. i didnt think Intense was offering it as part of their upgrade yet.

    I don't see it listed on their website. Do you have to talk to them to get the swap?

    As promised, here are a few pictures of my 36-40t e13 LG1+ fitted to the M9 frame without modification. I have two thicker black washers sandwiching a thin brass spacer for a total spacing of about 5mm. I have it tilted forward and am about 3-4mm away from the linkage.

    Thanks, I'll post pictures of the full build when I get the brake lines replaced probably (hopefully) next weekend. I've run both the MRP G2 and e13 LG1+ and think that they are just about equal products but I like the looks of the e13 better so I was very pleased when it fit. The fact that I didn't have to drop another $130 or so for the G2 SL wasn't too bad either...

    I just got the brake lines replaced and picked it up this morning. A big thanks to Brian at Wrench Science. Can't wait to get out and ride.

    Not sure what happened there but my two pictures were put side by side so I deleted the one to eliminate the majority of the side-scroll. Here is is:
