    Now with powder coated No-Tubes Crest rims for a 1582grams wheelset build using American Classic hubs and fitted with Crow tyres.

    First ride this coming Thursday night.



    Yes, there's no front disc at the moment and I'm awaiting my new carbon Carnegie's Bars.

    I'm hoping for a 20lbs build, finger crossed

    Sweet build, John. I've got the Kermit AIR for my wife (arrived yesterday). How close is the color match of that carbon fork to the frame's green? Does anybody know how close the Niner steel fork's kermit green is to the AIR 9 for a match? I keep getting various shades of green in all the photographs I've been viewing. In some pictures, the carbon fork looks much lighter than the frame's green, and in others it doesn't. I can't find a bike build picture of the AIR 9 with the steel kermit fork.

    For some odd reason, the wife does not want a suspension fork on her AIR 9. She's been riding a Trek 26" wheeled bike with a rigid steel fork and wants rigid for her new 29"er.

    Anyway, your bike looks great. Just wondered how close that fork is to the frame in color match.

    Thanks.

    Nice bike. Dig the effort you put in to standing out in the Niner crowd. Most of the niner bikes all look the same no matter how much ano color they put on them. But yours is sweet.

    and I thought all along most of you all hated the hipster fixie scene because of what we do to our bikes.....
    Why are there so many threads about cheap ass bikes?

    Many thanks. Brant from Shedfire sent me a 2nd "sample" set of his new carbon Carniegie's Bars as Guitar Ted tested here http://twentynineinches.com/2010/01/...n-coming-soon/
    Making it now weigh in at 20.34lbs and altering it's look somewhat. It's original set of Carnegies will head over to my Gary Fisher Rumblefish.

    Yes, I did. Thanks. My color coordination of fork and frame is as close as I can get it.

    The carbon fork arrived yesterday from Niner and I'll probably have at it this weekend with the installation. Holding it in my hand, I am amazed how light it actually is. I'm starting to get jealous of my wife's bike.

    I think a lot of the images we see are over-exposed so these bright colours show up lighter than they actually are.
    I think John Climbers pics have been taken with flash which emphasises this effect, the area that is giveng a direct reflection is showing up white.
    I wonder if alloy/steel/carbon that is all painted the same colour has different 'reflective properties' (for want of a better terminology.)
    Anyway JC I love your bike. I'd love to see more pics taken with less exposure.
    Velocity do a 'anti freeze' green that could be a good match for the kermit. Also there is a light blue option that is very similar to the blue air9 frames.
    The twenty-nine inch wheel.

    Looking good, Johnclimber.

    I wrapped up the build on my wife's new "cutie" of a bike yesterday. New seatpost, pedals and saddle are in transit, but for now I went with parts bin goodies for those components.

    Wife is 5'3" and after several fittings for bar height, saddle height, handlebar width this is what she claims feels great.

    GrandAIR9

    The fork is HAWT!!! I will probably have to do one more cut on the steerer tube once we can get outside and do some real riding to dial in the fit, but I left the full 40mm spacer stack (maximum allowed on the Carbon fork) for now.

    She chose the red headset....

    CarbonFork

    And matching red seatpost collar....

    SeatpostCollar

    2 x 9 drivetrain...

    20.39 on the scale...(should drop to 19.61 with the new post, saddle and pedals)

    OnTheScale

    WeightB4FinalParts

    Cockpit...

    Cockpit

    A bit more on paper probably due to it needed some more sealant in the tires. Again, 356g should be coming off once the new Thomson post, saddle and pedals arrive this week.

    just picked this up.... so it's only a start

    size Small Air 9 - Raw.... weighed it first thing... came in a little porky at 1554gr... oh well



    oddly, the chainstay doesn't have the funky cross-section shape like some above... there was only one other above that had the smoother looking chainstay like this... don't know if this is newer or older style... shipment of this frame came from Niner just 2 days ago (on Friday morning)... so ??? ...




    Wheels - picked these up for a steal at the same time...




    All i need now is a fork, which I'm in the process of locating... all other parts will transfer from my 26er... Looking forward to building it up!

    Crappy pics, but you can get the idea. Looks so much better in person.
