    Here is my new to me A9C, 19lbs as you see it, but I could take 2 pounds off easy with lighter wheels and tires. I just recently became aware of the new Rock Shox RS-1 which would be the only fork I would consider for this machine! Perhaps when the prices get back into the realm of mere mortals!

    Just finished up my A9C build, very happy with how it came out!

    Went 32 X 20. Rear cog is by Chris King, would have gone with the Niner Cogalicious but was tired of waiting months and months while Niner kept changing their backorder dates.

    Front chain ring is a narrow/wide I designed and machined.

    Had this one about 4 years now, used as a commuter for a while then a XC bike. My favorite:

    new '13 Air 9 alloy build

    Hey bembry45, what length fork is that up front? 120mm? I just ordered an Air9 frame from Jenson and wondering what to put on the front.
    How do you like the handling of the bike?

    By no means am I an expert but the Air 9 all the way up to its carbon brothers is a serious XC frame. With that said I think you'll get the most fun & efficiency out of the bike with 100mm. If your looking for 120mm or bigger probably thinking the Ros9 little bit more of a trail oriented frame. Either way handling is great...incredibly nimble especially climbing over roots & rocks. Through axle's make a world of a difference. Make sure you post when you start building!!

    Are you running a 120mm fork? From your pictures compared to others I have seen of the Air 9 your bb drop doesn't look to low as your chainstay looks pretty horizonal to the ground.
    I know the newest Air 9 frame can take a 100mm - 120mm fork. I have a Rock Shox Reba Team with 20mm thru axle set at 120mm, but can be adjusted to 80mm or 100mm also.

    upgrade to air

    after 5 years riding an EMD, it was time for an upgrade to an Air 9 frame. Lucky enough I could still find my favorite, an 2012 black anodised large Air 9.




    I thought wintertime would be ideal to do a new build. Less time on the bike means more time to work on it. Now the bike is ready, but it is still too soon to go to the Alps.
