    I've thought about putting on of those nice Niner forks on it for racing and just assumed I'd get black. It looks great with the matching color. Where did you end up sourcing the fork?

    Scored it on ebay last week from a gentleman in Boise. Oddly enough, I tracked down the frame last year on Craigslist from a different guy in Boise.

    Here's my A9C, 18 lbs of loveliness! Maiden voyage today.

    Crossmax SLR's
    Racing Ralphs
    Modded M960 Cranks
    Carbon, seatpost, bars and stem

    I can't wait to try it out!

    Quick question for those running the Bio-Centric 2. I just installed a brand new one in this bike, but did not put any of the Carbo spray or teflon tape because I thought I recalled seeing a reco to use these dry unless riding in extreme wetness. I couldn't find the thread where I saw this.

    I would follow the instructions on the Niner site. I have had spotty results running them dry. Although I have had less problems on my Sir than the carbon frames with aluminum insert.

    I didn't read a question, but I assume you're asking if that's okay to run without the Carbo? I think it's Niner itself that recommends the Carbo only if running dry causes noise or movement. So I think you're right.
    However, I've never run dry. I bought Carbogrip when I got the BioCentric2 and I've never had any problems in a year, with a lot of winter riding on my SS.

    Might as well ride the thing and if you notice any issue, order some Carbogrip. Have fun. Looks great.

    Stopped at FATS on the way home from Folly Beach and took my raw scandium one9. Man, I wish Niner would bring back the scandium. Since they're hard to come by these days I picked up a backup one9 in green 'just in case'

    Wider rims

    I just switched out my rims to the Velocity Blunt35s and I have a Nobby Nic 2.3 up front and a Racing Ralph 2.2 on the rear. Wider is Soo much better. I've had the Mavic 729s on my FXR for years but wide on a 29er makes your bike seem like it will stick to walls. The guys at twentyniner.com said the AC Wide Lightnings wouldn't fit on the ROS 9 but with my Sir9 I could easily fit my 35ers with most 2.3's maybe a 2.4. I know it two different frames but I don't think the spacing is that narrow. Do yourself a favor and get wide rims. Stan's flow EX or wider but you'll notice the advantages right away.
