    I've posted these elsewhere but figured what the heck... I've changed the rear tire to a small block and put on a longer Thompson seatpost since these pics.

    Seems that a lot of Sir9ers like Middleburn:



    Built around Salsa / Middleburn / Magura Marta / Hope II and a little Luv from Ohio

    THX Bonesetter, it was your pic in this post that influenced my build somewhat. I even Photoshoped the silver Reba on your bike when I was deciding what color to get. I ended up going with black too of course. Nice ride

    My new ride....gremlins all worked out..amazing

    Size small 09 frame. Full Chris King bearings.F29 at 80mm. Formula K24 brakes.28in wide Salsa 11deg bars. 36hole Salsa Semi 28mm wide rims DB DT spokes.Brass nipples. Salsa seatpost and front hub binders.Running 80mm O deg stem on king scuff washer.Rear hub funbolt and Stainless Steel Driveshell options. Surly 32 SS ring Surly 20t cromoly cassette cog. KMC z610hx 3/32 premium bmx chain.SLX 665 175mm cranks. Sold all my other bikes.This bike is a collaboration of everything Ive learned to love and prefer in my 20 years of mtb trailriding and 10+ years as professional shop mechanic.It is so extremely satisfying to now re-learn what speeds are possible through turns. Next up is a front tire that can hang with this newfound velocity. My bro Ian who turned me on to 29ers recommends the Kenda Nevegal for this type of work.I hope you all are as stoked and loving your rides just as much.

    Iv`e been messing about with my cockpit and I finaly have it dialled.

    I went from a thomson streight post to an eriksen setback but when I fit the syntace bar my front wheel was still wandering on the steep ups. I put it down to the sweep on the bar, so now I am running a kncn 90mm stem with negative rise.





    Its another 4 weeks until our national races start so its good to have one less thing to think about. I`m starting to get fed up of intervals on the trainer so I dedicated this weekend to getting my trail legs back on. It didnt take long before I got used to the new setup and i`m raring to go!



    The sir is a great confidence booster! Best bike I have ever owned... but you all know that already.

    Hy Sir9 folks!
    Seems that a lot of you run stems on the short end. I have a 100mm 0rize with a Luvbar, which makes my hands cross the stem at around 90mm. I hope you get what I mean.
    Thin is, on the hills I have the feeling I'm a little too much over the front wheel. So I think for a replacement for my Salsa stem I should go with a 90mm i.e. 80mm effective length. Looking at the pictures that might be the favorite setup?

    A SIR roaming along the borderlands, Bisbee AZ. Think I've got it where I want it now with the new Bio-EBB (flawless so far).
    Cheers,

    Nice shots... how are the 1x9 setups and geared setups working for you folks with the EBB? Seems worth it to go for the SIR over the MCR for the versatility that you might go singlespeed, how's it working out with the EBB? any issues? Looks solid to me, but just checking!

    I have had single, 1x8, 1x9, 2x9, 3x9.

    No probs what so ever. Mine doesn`t creak either, though I hear that some do.
