    Congrats!

    Looks great! Is your front shock set at 120mm? If so, how does it ride?

    Hello,

    I have 2 questions for you, experts in JET9 building

    1- For the cable routing, one need 3 parts of housing for the rear derailleur, and 2 for the front, right ? Is this doable with the housing provided in a shimano XTR cable set ? (i have one brand new on hand, so if you haven't mounted one, you could just give me the lenght of the houssing needed, and i would figure it out)

    2- For the front derailleur. If one wants to use a 2 rings (+bashring) setup, could one use a shimano SLX 2 rings specific front derailleur ?

    Thanks for your help.

    You can use a double front derailleur if you want, as a matter of fact if will work the best if you are running two rings of the size the specific derailleur is designed for. You could use a triple style also.

    As far as the cable, I can give you those measurements for a Jet 9 Medium later today when I get home if someone else doesn't post them first.

    JET9 shift cable lengths medium built by Niner but all frame sizes probably use the same precut sizes. I have X9/X0 Rear and X9/XT front.

    Rear: 20" 13" 5"
    Front 20" 12"

    All measurements rounded to next larger length. Also, the 20" top parts are plenty long and are proably cut to fit all sizes and stems so you can probably use less. You should have more than enough and by careful planning end up with 1 fairly long piece left over.

    Headset: Hope
    (Rear) Shifter: X.0
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT (not installed yet)

    I am setup 1x9 on my Jet9, and at the Ouachita challenge yesterday, I decided I could use a granny gear. So I joked to my friends saying I will put a granny gear, but no FD, and manually switch it. Maybe I should consider this. Let us know how it's working out for you.

    Get a used DuraAce dual FD. Light, cheap (on the Bay) and works great on a JET.

    Hey Jester, have you ever ridden those 2.2" Mtn Kings before? Just curious, because if you haven't I might give a little warning that they really good on very loose surfaces/mud, but give a very not nice pucker feel on hardpack when they start to squirm on all those tall, small knobs - just an FYI. I have a 2.2" and 2.4" and although they can have a simialr sort of feel the 2.4" definitely doesn't give you the feeling the 2.2s do.

    Oh and very nice build, like the red saddle and grips to finish off the red/black theme.

    Today was my 1st ride with the MKs. The trails were soft today and I found the tires nearly perfect for braking, overall speed and traction while climbing.

    I'll keep your info in mind as things dry out.

    I replaced the Schwalbe Racing Ralphs on my Jet 9 with Mountain King 2.4" tubeless. Seems like a better all around tire for the PNW. I like the added traction and I don't feel any particular 'speed' penalty.

    Cheers.

    Andrea, very nice indeed That's one seriously pimped out, colour matched JET9 Pitty you couldn't get the white Reba to top it off I think the black looks good on it, just maybe the white might look better. Loads of guys with white Reba's I think that'd like Black.

    My new Jet ( arrived, my LBS got it built in time for me to walk off my plane flight, swing by the shop and jump in the car for a trip to Pisgah this past weekend. Such a sweet ride, never had any back pain for once in my life and that was more than 5.000 ft of climbing.

    Still missing the Stans 355 white rims which should arrive in June. Right now the Stans Arch rims are doing great. The bike was smooth, great climber, and fit just so well.

    beautiful bike, I like the color choices. I think you might run into some trouble with the front derailleur cable routing below the bottom bracket shell and the rear derailleur cable routing going to the inside of the rear triangle. Just something to watch. Enjoy the new ride.

    Yeah- I'm keeping an eye on it. I probably would have routed it differently, but I let the shop put it together since all of my wrench experience involves road bikes.

    kbell is that the speedgoat 2009 XT build? did you have them swap some components? (thought it came with a reba).
    What bars are those? I have the niner straight and hadn't thought of messing with it, but every bike I've ever had had risers on it.

    Mine was the X-9 XO build but I swapped out the seat post, saddle, crank, cassette and handlebars for ones I already had.

    Eastone Monkey Lite bars, XT cassette, crank and bb, Thomson post and an SDG/Yeti Ti Fly saddle I had from an old Yeti.

    Update I raced the Jet in June and came in 2nd overall in a 25 team adventure race with a very rocky rooty course. I broke my rockers the next day and raced on the MCR9 at XTERRA East Coast Championships and finished 2nd in my age group. Best finish ever in the regional event. Rode it all last Fall and into the winter and still love it. Rode it in XTERRA Miami in March and finished 2nd. The bike just goes fast.

    I agree the bike is fast! After riding the Jet all winter I raced in my first ever bike race on January 31st and won! As I said it was my first race and was in the beginner category! I beat the 2nd place by 20 seconds and the 3rd place by 1 minute 30 seconds. The field was about 40 beginner riders and the course was 14 miles long.

    My Jet, on the first ride.

    Pretty excited about how well the CVA suspension climbs when I am out of the saddle. Really smooth and great over technical sections/rideups. Bonus points if you can find the unusual spec - most everything else was just what we had around in the garage, or took off of the hardtails.

    Hey just wondering. I've been wanting the new Jet9 in white partly due to the new all black linkages shown on the Niner website, but I see yours has the standard silver ones. Did you request the silver ones, or did it just come that way?

    Thanks.

    Wink

    Chucky, that's a hard one, but I'll take a stab at it...........Could be one of several - QR Seatpost clamp, Modified XTR crank, Short stem with no spacers, 100mm Minute I'm guessing of my choices it's the QR clamp. Either way very nice looking build

    If you check out the black links on my black JET, you will see we swapped them. Not something you can request, but you might be able to buy silver ones.

    The Reba, I9 and Elixir combo had such tight clearance that the caliper wasn't even close to getting far enough outward to align.

    Helpful guys at my LBS ended up having to file away some material away from the caliper mounting bolt holes. Works like a charm now. Clearance is just the tightest I've ever seen.

    I posted a thread in the 29er forum about the issue. I'm just too computer illiterate to post the url correctly.

    Thread was called: Reba Team 20mm / I9 Issues

    Apparently others have had similar issues with the I9 enduro hubs and brake rotor clearance.

    You know Chuky, that's a nice little touch to be quite honest, very subtle and if like me you're not a JET9 officionado and knew the white frames came with black rockers and vice versa you wouldn't notice it. It accents the shiny crown on the Manitou nicely and the lucky recipient gets a nice all stealth black JET Hope you made him pay dearly

    Thanks for the props! I'm very pleased with the ride as well as the aesthetics!!

    No, to be honest the girlfriend got me that brake set. I have used 160 rotors f/r on all my bikes. As a birthday gift she surprised me with those knowing I was getting this frame (God love her). I went with them, and the rotor size alone may have been what caused all the commotion with the front end (although I don't have a 160 lying around to confirm that). The Elixir R's on my Fisher were great and the only difference I can notice a whole bunch in rotor size on these CR's is the power stays very consistent throughout lengthy downhill sections... as they should.

    Thanks again!
