I read an interview on twentynineinches.com where the chief engineer talked about the company. Two things impressed me and was half the reason I bought the fork. One was customer service and the other was rider adjust ability with shimming the fork. The other half was price! I need to buy cranks, which I would like to get XO1, seat post(still thinking), stem and bars. From the money I saved on the fork, I can spend on the cranks.

    As yourdaguy stated, I too am amazed that this frame will hold up to my riding. However, I don't have any jumps or big drops in our riding or racing courses. I have a friend who broke is specialized carbon stumpy, then a S works replacement frame last year. Specialized upgraded him to a epic at a replacement price and told him this was the last bike frame he would get from them! Cant blame them. Not sure what happened but he is an aggressive rider that is not to smooth.
    I wouldn't buy X01 cranks, Because the spider is bigger bolt circle than the XX1 & will only go down to 30 tooth chain ring.

    Were as the XX1 can go down to 28 tooth Chain Ring, Sure you may not need to go that low but it is nice to have that option.

    What gradients are you riding a singlespeed on that you need a chainring smaller than 30t?

    Not singlespeed though?

    And in that case, you can go the direct mount chainring route with that crank and ditch the spider anyway

    DAMN. 17! I'm impressed. My Scandium is between 22 and 23 depending on how much water is in the bottle. Of course I'm running a five-year-old RockShox fork. But that would still not get it below 20.

    The snow has finally departed Philly. I took the One9 out last night for a hard 9 miles with 1500' of hills and the bike felt like it, um, gained some weight over the last two or three months...

    I am working on finishing my air 9 carbon build 2013 model. I have a question on the BB. I am running the Ebb II with a Hope BB for a SS set up. XX1 cranks with AB spiderless chainring. Am I suppose to use the spacers on the hope BB? If yes, which side and how many? Thanks. I am planning on posting a picture when I finish it. Need to get a couple more parts.

    The A9C BB shell width is 73mm with CYA inserts or EBB installed. Install your BB per Hope instructions for that size shell (should be 1 spacer on the drive side).

    I've got the same frame on the way for geared setup. Can't wait!

    Unfortunately, our trails (Boise) have a lot of clay and riding when it's muddy really tears them up so we try not to ride much when it's been raining a lot.

    Has anyone tried running a Beer Components or other eccentric BB on the new Air 9 frame at all and does it work?

    I was going to go for a One 9 but since Niner have shuffled the range around they seem to have discontinued the One 9 and now only do a One 9 RDO which bumps the price up from £820 to £2100

    It will work on the Aluminum Air 9 but not on the carbon Air 9. The new A9C is basically the same mold as the old air 9 RDO so it doesn't have the aluminum reinforced bb area.

    I have an Air9 and the Beer adapter. I was originally going to use the adapter rather than buy the Niner adapter and the SRAM adapter since I was going to start running it geared but wanted to be able to convert to SS. I put everything in loosley with the 3 ring crank I was going to use and found that there was a very small range of movement with that big ring on there before I would be hitting the chain stay with the big ring. I took everything apart and went the other way. If you are running SS and stick to 34 tooth or smaller, I would think you would be fine. I love the Air9 by the way.

    Thanks for the info guys, it's the aluminium Air 9 that I'm interested in.

    I've just received a reply from the Niner distributors after I emailed them, there response was that an S.I.R. or ROS would run singlespeed, not really that helpful!

    My new Air 9 Carbon single speed . Got the frame on close out from Competitive Cyclist and got Arches w/I9 hubs built by Dave at Speed Dream. Didn't weigh it but it rides pretty damn nice, looking forward to putting some miles in on it.

    Nice!! Godzilla Green! I have the same frame. When I bought mine used, the eBay dude said it was Moondust, but that never seemed quite right.
    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'

    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.

    I've been loving my One9. It's an old 2008 frame, however, and I'd like to upgrade the bike over the winter with new wheels and fork, and move to the 142x12 and 15mm hubs while I'm at it. I like the steel frame of the Sir9, but boy am I bummed by the color choices of white, red and that goofy fluorescent yellow. Boy I'd like to have one of the newer Sir9 frames in Moondust. I wonder how much it would cost to have one powder-coated...
    (Also, is it weird that the newer One9's seem to be geared bikes? Isn't that an Air9? What's the point of that?)

    Wow... I think this is my third contribution to this thread! Needless to say, I like Niner SS bikes

    Have since tossed on some black ESI chunky grips, just didn't have them for the shakedown ride and the Ergons go on quickly

    I'll post a pic with the matching blue carbon fork up when I get a chance.

    Awesome. I really love that frame! Was going to go that route with a new SS build until a lightly used Air9c fell into my lap! It was too good of a deal to pass up.

    My beloved One9 SS was stolen off of my porch two weeks ago. Thief with bolt-cutters. So now I'm trying to figure out what to do as I plan a new (sigh) singlespeed.
    I have a geared Ros9, and my first inclination was to start with a Sir9 frame. But I'm just not into these colors that Niner is painting the Sir9 right now. White, bright red, and that bizarre fluorescent yellow are not really anything I want to ride around on (though if I found the red or white used, I'd probably change my mind). AND they don't make the One9 anymore except for the incredibly expensive but gorgeous RDO version.
    So I feel kind of like a turncoat as I look at Chumba's Stella and Ibis' Tranny29.

    Sorry to hear that. I can relate after having my one9 stolen last year. I have a Moondust gray SIR9 medium frame set if you're interested.

    Thanks, that Moondust is nice. But I'm a large. I'm also kind of in love with the 142x12 and 15mm hubs these days, though putting together a traditional QR set-up with used parts might be in the cards until I spring the $$ for a newer set-up.

    142x12 is the way to go. I updated my SIR9 and Air9C to the One9 RDO because of that.

    That One9 RDO at $2149 is $500 more than the Ibis and $1000 more than the steel SS frames I'm looking at. I just can't see where it's so much better, especially against the Tranny 29, which is also carbon-fiber. Any thoughts?

    One9 RDO Build

    Finally.... I've been building this setup for almost 2 months and rode it for the first time tonight. It sits just under 18 pounds with current components... worth the wait.

    Nice bike, SSATL77!

    I posted this in the Singlespeed forum as well.
    My Niner One 9 RDO. 800kms in 2 1/2 months and loving it. No other bike I have owned has got as many comments and questions out on the trail.
