    AIR 9 Carbon

    My new upgrade bike from a AIR 9 Scandium. And yes, those are Midnight Ridazz spoke cards on the front wheel. My A9C works hard and plays hard too....

    WFO 9 - pics from Niner

    Heh. Actually, tons of love for the WFO, but we have a lot fewer pics - I think that this is because we spend more time rallying on those bikes. Stopping to take pics when you have miles of shredding ahead is less than appealing :-)

    That said, I have pics of 3 WFO 9s - belonging to Jordan, Fuzzy and Aaron. The trendy build of the moment at Niner is XTR trail and Fox 34. We are stoked on the 34 - it the the fork the WFO 9 has been waiting for.

    Post #16 shows a lefty on a RDO. What Lefty do you recommend for the Jet 9 RDO? Looking for the best option for xc set-up.

    Thanks

    Tell me about it. Since getting the WFO dialed in, I don't think I have taken a single photo, am having too much fun riding it!
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    I have the Lefty Carbon PBR Ultra 140 with 30mm of spacers to make it a 110mm fork. I use it with the Project321 tapered steerer adapter and it works great. I also use the Project321 Lefty Hub. The only issue I have with the Lefty is that now I need one for all my bikes.

    ^ This.

    I have two carbon lefties now, and set my bike buying criteria on frames that will be compatible (head tube stack height).

    I intend to run my Carbon SL on an RDO, so I'll have only 80mm travel and an aggressive head-angle offset a little with a CC AngleSet headset. A bit mad scientist but if I feel it is too low I'll go through the effort of selling and moving to a PBR.

    Sweet bikes guys,
    What does the head angle come out at on the WFO with the new 150mm for fork? 67-68?
    I am riding a spec enduro which has a HA of 66.5 and I love how I can plow through anything. Do the 29 inch wheels make up for not having a slack head angle?

    Lefty on the RDO = awesome. The jealousy is abounding.

    However, it seems the background of a lot of the pictures are either CO, UT, or WY (I did spy the laramie enduro race tag in one too). Do most of your riders work out of the fort collins office these days, or what's the deal? Also, you ever thought of putting together a monthly group ride - every month on the 9th or something?

    Brett,

    in that picture of you air nine at Larame. What are you using for the seatpost mounted bottle cage? Do you think it would be ok with a rdo carbon post?

    Where is your left hand?

    Yep, steel is real and has a life to it no plastic bike can match.

    That was a couple pieces of machined aluminum (which would for certain scuff the clear coat finishon the nice RDO post) but I would have no problem running the twofish version. http://www.twofish.biz/pdf/StainlessCages.pdf

    Worth noting bottles do catapult in super rough terrain back there, I ended up using a bungee Velcro strap to make sure my fluids didn't disappear in that race.

    Hi Chris in your words apart from the material, please explain the differences (Example: Ride quality) between the MCR/SIR and the Air 9 Carbon.

    I see lots of of Jet9 RDOs. Since the shift upgrade kit went on mine, life is good on the RDO.

    FireSpitter,

    I have always struggled to put into words about what makes a steel ride so special. The best I can come up with is the zing you get out of corners and the "different" type of over-all compliance that comes with steel vs other materials.

    I also like the aesthetics of a steel bike. It has a minimal look and a simple form that speaks to me.

    A steel bike is a great addition to any hard-core quiver!

    Would love to hear from others on their takes!

    By a stroke of pure luck, I had a call from some old friends who called to check if I still had a bike and wanted to go for a ride with them. This happened about 30 mins after I made my post.

    I already have a SIR9 and am very happy with how it rides. I believe it'll take a very strong contender to knock it off my personal favourite bike of all time. However that said, prior to the SIR9 I have neither owned a steel bike or a 29er and I don't know if my feelings and judgement on the quality of the ride is due to the R853, 29er format, Niner's geometry or all of them. To make matters worse, the Air9 Carbon had been a permanent fixture in my head for the longest time. So much so that I guess the image of me owning one is more vivid than my most memory scene from an adult movie. During my work, I think of it. After work, I think of it. During me sleep, yes, I dream of it.

    Some love the simplicity of the looks of a steel frame. Personally I prefer the beefier or angular looks of a carbon or aluminium frame. However that excludes my lust for steel lugged frames. Back to my story about my 2 old friends...

    We went on a 60km ride and during our rest point, I had the opportunity to swing a leg over my buddy's Scott Scale carbon (26er). It wasn't really a fair comparison as it was a short ride, his frame was one size too large but based on feel, carbon feels like a sponge. It dampens a load of vibrations. In fact, so well till the ride feels "dead". The SIR felt a lot livelier in comparison. I'm sure Scott or carbon fans might beg to differ but this is just my personal opinion.

    My earlier question posed to you was to ascertain if an Air9C was gonna give me more smiles than my SIR or should I stick to something that I am totally happy with. Paying for a $2300+ frame/carbon fork and find out that you love the previous bike better is not a luxury I can afford. Looks like for now, the SIR is the lovely wife. Trusted & dependable. The A9C, the porn star that will linger in your mind for the longest time....
