    You got it. I am dog tired today. We did the 49th St trail head to vortex area round trip. That put us right at 30 miles.

    Just curious, how tall are you and what's your inseam? Currently my size L Air9 has a similar setup in terms of stem length and seat height. I'm contemplating trading the frame for a Medium due to the excess long top tube length that requires a short 70-75mm stem so I'm not doing the "superman" pose while riding.

    I'm 5'11" (bare feet) and 33" inseam. I've contacted Niner with my measurements and they recommended a LG.

    Anyone riding square taper and double on Air 9?

    Hi,
    Went with an Air9 in the Jet recall program, option 1.
    Currently I'm running a TA Axix Ti BB 113mm square taper with Middleburn RS8 cranks with a TA 36 t on middle position and 24 t on the granny.
    To use this set I could add 2 spacers (2.5mm) in the BB (Jet has 68mm, Air 9 73mm).
    I've read that a 36 on the middle position wouldn't work: not enough clearance with the chainstay.
    So if anyone is running a Sq taper set-up, what axis-length are you using?
    I could order a new Ti BB axle in 116mm or 119mm and reuse bearing cups.
    Would be very grateful to get some advice and details...

    Thanks Mark, it was definitely a fun build. I ended up selling the bike in a similar form to fellow forumite (Starter). As far as the weight go, I'm not really certain. I did this build before I turned into a WW (now a recovering WW) so it wasn't SUPER light. I'd say 22-23 pounds. It was a GREAT bike but I ultimately ended up with a 2x9 Pivot 429 and a Salsa El Mariachi SS.

    The Hope Mono M4s are great AND they're lighter than the, now super popular, Avid Elixir CRs. (I'm actually selling the brakes shown the on bike now. PM if interested)

    FSR1 is that an 80mm or 100mm on your bike?

    That silver Air 9? That bike is not mine, but it is a 80mm fork. If he were to do it again he'd go for a 100mm so I'm told.
