    My Jet 9 build evolved

    Awhile back I posted my Jet 9 build but many things have changed. I can't find my old post so...

    Jet 9 medium frame

    Niner carbon seatpost
    Niner alum bar/stem
    SID RL fork
    X0 Brakes
    X0 Gripshift
    1x10 Wolftooth Components direct mount chainring
    x9 rd
    x9 cranks
    10sp sram cassette (I think 1050 but not sure)
    SRAM 1051 chain
    Sun Ringle wheelset (the ones Niner has with them so not available on anything but a Niner)
    Schawlbe Racing Ralphs set up tubeless
    Specialized Riva saddle (changing soon)
    ESI Chunky grips

    And to top it off my an Avid bell


    I have this as an unofficial 25 pounds even but need to take it to the shop with the digital scale.

    Here are some pictures. They aren't all of the final build but you'll get the idea.

    Those of you with alum Jet 9's any ideas on what yours weigh in at? I'm not a hug weight weenie but was very surprised with where mine came in at.

    How is the wolftooth chainring and x9 type 2 working out for you. Any issue with the chain dropping?

    I sure wish they made those spiderless chainrings for the sram bb30 cranks.

    Looks good! Any idea how much the niner-made black flags weigh?

    I am actually running a normal X9 with no clutch and haven't had a dropped chain yet. Still new though so give me a month to have more data.

    I have no idea how much they weight. I could try to weigh them the next time I put new tires on.

    Very happy with this build as is and won't be changing anything other than grips and saddle for a long time. Of course if something breaks or wears out I'm gonna have to replace it.
