    [COLOR="Blue"]hello u'all,

    i'm goanna to attend the cape epic next march.
    a friend of mine advise me to buy a "niner air 9" for that race.
    do any of you have an opinion regarding those bike?+6
    are they any good for that porpuse?
    i'm not planning on "enjoying" the ride - i intend to kick ass!

    at that moment i ride the gary fisher hi-fi and it's too girly for me... :-)

    i used to be a roadi and love climbing and riding fast...

    HI Ohad - I rode this years Epic on an EMD and loved it. You definitively don't need a HT 29er for this race and will appreciate the lighter bike.

    I am jealous and wish I was riding next year - enjoy.

    Hello R,

    thanks, have a few questions:
    1. so your advise is to go with the 26" and not the 29" because of wight?
    2. what is your advise between chossing a Hard Tail or Full sus?
    3. can you specify a few models wich you think will fit the race?

    I would say:

    1. 29" definitively
    2. Hard tail
    3. EMD, AIR, AIR Carbon, MCR or SIR would be fine
