    Air 9 Scandium with niner reynolds fork?

    I dont think I have ever seen one? They look gorgeous with the carbon fork but has anyone saved some cash and ran their steel front up fork? Does it look terrible?

    My winter One9 runs the 953 fork up front. Same frame as the Air9 and it looks fine.

    If I remember I'll snap a picture at the weekend and post it.

    I am in the final process of building a tang colored Air9 with color matching reynolds fork. I was going to go the niner carbon fork route, but I got a sweet deal on the reynolds fork I couldn't pass-up. The bike is currently built and rideable, but is awaiting the brakeset to be delivered later this week to final the build. I will take a couple of pictures tomorrow sans brakeset. Just riding around the house (remember no brakes) though the bike seems to handle well, have a decent ride, and really looks great to boot. I haven't weighed it yet but considering the fact that it doesn't have any brakes mounted, I think its still going to be pretty light.

    OK...here are a couple of pics. Raining here today so its a semi-garage picture, but it will give you a good idea of the air9 with reynolds fork set-up.




    As mentioned no brakes yet, but will have them mounted and ready to go later this week.
