    Dumb question here:
    I'm looking to pick up a 2011 Niner One9 frame, Are there any giagantic differences between the 2011 and 2012/2013 models?
    Likely the biocentric II is a big one and tapered vs straight headtube. Anything else?

    The 2011 is Scandium.
    The 2012 is Alum. Hydroformed.

    Not sure how the 2011 scandium performs, but the 2012 Alum is amazing...
    Light-weight, spot-on geometry, durable paint job and looks beautiful.
    the 2012 also has tapered head tube and some other goodies.

    Visually speaking, I like much better the 2012 squared hydro tubed with smooth welding over the 2011 round scandium tubes with rough welding.

    Ah, thanks dude. I definitely agree on the look. The price tag is a $500+ difference though. Competitive cyclist has the 2011 with the EBB for $500 shipped. Niner is $900 + $ for EBB + shipping + tax I bet.

    I understand the financial considerations, but better to spend more than to be sorry later....
    (Not saying that the 2011 is inferior... I am not familiar with it at all)
    Hopefully you can get an opinion form someone that owns.rode both frames.

    Yep I fully agree. I've spent the last week rolling the numbers around in my head. Still not sure what I'm going to do.

    Geo between the two are identical. 2012 is slightly lighter (70g). I've not ridden a 2012, but own a 2010. I really can't see it being twice as good as the scandium version. I can find much better uses for the $400+. But that's just my .02 cents.

    Hi, can anyone assist, please: I have a Niner Rigid White fork QR and want to sand it down to make it Matt black to fit in with my frame - it will be done professionally !

    Someone told me that they mix the paint with carbon or something - don't want to mess the fork up!!??

    Can this be done?

    I've got an Air9 RDO as my main geared bike now, but thinking of selling it and getting another Air9C to run SS.

    Why, if I my ask ?
    What's wrong with the geared RDO ?

    Nothing's wrong with the RDO at all. In fact it's the best geared 29er I've ridden.... and I've owned a lot of high end bikes.

    But, I am considering racing SS pretty much exclusively next season. So, I'd like to have a nice stiff carbon frame to race on instead of the Sir 9. I'd love to just pick up a Air9C as an additional bike. But I don't think that is going to be in the cards.

    So, if you ride a size large and want to do a trade for a pristine black RDO (had it for maybe 2.5 months.... started the year on an S-works Epic) for an new air9 C, let me know I'll throw in some cash too.

    Should have never sold the Air9C... but I have a habit of getting rid of the bikes I really shouldn't. Just ask my wife

    New Niner One 9 to replace pink Niner Air 9 SS. No more tensioner!! I also added a Raceface stem and carbon bar to help me stretch out a bit. Huge difference!

    Thanks guys.

    Stumpy, I'd have to say the new carbon one. Not because its new, but I feel like it simply handles better. Not only in comfort but in sharpness. I feel more in tune with it for some reason.

    7daysaweek, thanks man, the crank matched just perfect. Lucky match since I've been having that crank laying around for months now. Lol

    I finished up my One 9 SS build with some 3T parts and will post pics soon. I have a quick question though.....I have the RDO carbon fork and installed with a giant 1 1/2 Crown Race as it looks identical to the Niner FSA Integrated one. However it appears that the fork is rubbing on the frame right where it meets it. Is there something special about the FSA one that I need to use it instead?

    I already have a SS One9 C and One9 (Jet9 and Sir9 too) but I was thinking about grabbing one of those Air9 closeouts $510 and using a Beer eccentric. Looking at the pictures of the Air9 with the purple BEER eccentric, it looks like you have to take the crank arm off to adjust the chain. Is that just this crank or is that generally true for all cranks and specifically the Stylo OCT cranks?

    You shouldn't need to remove the crank arm to adjust tension. Loosen the 2 bolts on the eccentric body and use a lock ring removal tool to rotate the body, then tighten the 2 bolts. IME Shimano crank arms don't interfere at all, SRAM Red on my SSCX required me to be VERY careful to make sure the wrench properly engaged the bolts they didn't slip and round, but it was absolutely possible without removing the NDS arm. Hope that helps.

    Thanks! Went out to Tulsa, Ok for work and ended up riding turkey mountain for its first ride. Overall I'm pretty impressed because I loved my last sir the improvements are noticeable the frame is definitely less twisty but still has plenty of the soft feel of steel. I did have problems with the ebb2 slipping and I never had problems with the original on the previous bike once I lined it with plumbers tape so I guess I will have to try that again.

    Hoping some of you Niner SS guys can give me a piece of advice. While I don't run a Niner frame, I am running a Niner rigid fork and could appreciate any input on how you are routing the front brake cable. Do I go through the fork? Around the back? Straight down? Any help is greatly appreciated and here is the build so far:
    Trek 69er SS (in progress), Trek Superfly, GT Force Carbon Expert, Trek Madone 6.2

    Outside and down the back. If you don't have clips you can use zip ties to hold it to the clips on the back of the left leg.
