    Changed the Tune seatpost for a cheap Truvativ one with setback and the bottlecage to a Tune Uni type. Matchmakers are on the way and as soon as the 2012 Sram X.0 is available I'm changing to that with a 36/22 setup.

    ops..I was forgetting: size?

    Hey Carabao, how did you set up the single speed? I contacted Niner and i cant use the EBB on the AIR9, what did you use for chain tension? I dont see a chain tensioner on yours, is there another EBB i can use?

    no tensioner. If you get the right combo you can get your chain on with minimal slack. Also you can use a half link to take up some slack.

    Hi!

    This is my just completed large Air Nine Scandium. It's shown with commuting wheel set. I race on some lighter stuff with more knobs. It is built with mostly 9 speed XTR with a beat up XT rear mech. The crank set is Race Face Turbine ISIS 180 mm with 24/30/40 rings. Fork is a G2 spec. Fox F29 100mm RP24.

    I recently raced Ultrabirken on it. It is Norway's toughest one day marathon, 120 km and 2330 meters climbing. The bike went through with flying colors. My own performance was more average.





    I am still changing around on the cockpit a bit. And I have just bought a Niner fork to try. I also have a Lefty I want to test on it when I have had it converted and served. But is it not a pain to see the new model Niner Air Nine introduced just when I got mine?

    best

    My new ride

    I can't believe I could convince the wife I needed a better race bike! She's a keeper (Both bike and wife that is). I unfortunately couldn't keep it clean long enough for some better pics but when it rides that fast it is hard to get decent pics!

    Large Air9 Raw
    Niner Carbon fork White
    Full XT brakes and drivetrain / XTR RD
    ZTR Flows with Racing Ralphs Red nips
    King nothreadset Red
    Salsa QR's and seatclamp Red
    truvativ WC stem
    Edge flat bar and post
    Specialized Phenom seat
    LS Moab grips

    add all of that together to make an awesome racing machine. around 21ish lbs

    I'm curious why you went with the set-back seat post because I just ordered one too for my new Air 9. Couldn't get the seat to slide back far enough to fit correctly.

    setback post

    I went with a setback seatpost right out of the gate as when researching frame sizes I found a few folks that shared my height (5'10"), that were running a medium frame, 90mm stem, and needed a setback seatpost for proper positioning. Considering I still needed to push the seat back on the rails to the max back position, I clearly need the setback post.

    Admittedly for me it is all about "cockpit position feel" and my positioning on the bike has not been critiqued by an expert.

    Hope that helps, K

    I'm running a small frame and 5' 8". Started with straight seat post and 90mm stem. Switching to set back post and maybe 100mm depending on the feel.

    Thanks,

    if your 5'8...what about going with a med frame and a zero offset/shorter stem setup. would that not be the same as what your going to do?

    Chris1911 - awesome build!! I just ordered the same frame and debating the build options. Curious - do you know the weight your bike as built?

    Anyone seen/have pics of the new Air-9 (hydroformed) in a size XL? I've got one backordered and it would be nice to at least obsess on a photo of one in my size ;-)... I'm also curious what the head tube area looks ilke (no downtube/seattube overlap?) on a bigger frame.
