I finally joined the club! New Niner Air 9 RDO!
I'd been lurking and dying to join this elite club for months now. Finally went with the big wheels and built me an AIR 9 RDO, my first 29er. It's finished a month ahead of time thanks to a bit of guidance from poster kfb66 and my usual impatience for anything. Took these shots prior to my first ride yesterday and it did not disappoint. It exceeded my expectations...really fun so far. Weight is 22lb7oz with everything you see.
Bike looks sick!! The SLR's look awesome

Thanks, guys! It has been more fun than I expected. I've only had two rides and am still getting used to the hardtail and bigger wheels but so far so good. The SLRs are super stiff, exactly as I expected. They came in total at 1672g (w/ stem valves and rear adaptor). Now I just need the engine to match the bike's capabilities and we're all good.
