    A Syntace F109 31.8 stem is about 111g in 90mm - my Thomson X4 ca 50g more

    .....enough weight to lose if wanted.

    I have got the Topeak Prepstand including a scale - another one at our shop and both show the same. Checked alot of parts on scale and the weights fit with the official weights.

    My frame is about 2480g including the ebb. Fork 575g uncut.

    I do not know what you are wondering about - my bike is not very light : 10,275 kg and it is a rigid bike with 1x9 ! The Carbon Air should not have a problem with 7,5 - 7,8kg and a 90kg rider.
    The SIR is about 1,3kg heavier than the Carbon - so 9kg would be light ( but also expensive ).

    It is not about wrong scales, rocket science or things like that - just numbers and facts. Choose ALL of your parts by function AND weight and calculate before building up the bike

    @ need4gforce

    The 26 pounds only start with your wheelset - but your bike looks nice and if you like the ride, weight should not be a problem.

    sir 9, is now single

    Now singlespeed with a support package from a Fisher I bought used a couple years ago. Have yet to ride it single on the trail. I'm wondering how the 80mm reba w/old offset will compare with the 100mm 09 reba I used when it was geared.

    kmcz410 in red

    I hadn't seen anyone do the red chain yet. But I'm sure I'm not the first. Still think it looks badass though.

    The new beast just showed up yesterday, went to the LBS to get a stem and have the steer tube cut after sizing it a bit better this morning. Unfortunately, rain today and an adventure race with hills tomorrow, means I don't get to get a ride in until Sunday most likely.

    Stats:

    Sir9 Medium
    Fox F29 Fit RLC QR15
    XT cranks/BB, running the middle chain ring as SS
    Mavic TN719s w XT hubs
    Avid BB7s
    Truvativ Husselfelt riserbar
    Chris King headset
    Thompson Stem
    Ritchey Comp seat post
    Kenda Nevegal 2.2s
    Wellgo WAM-D10 pedals

    But, here are a few quick snaps:

    Thanks for posting. Can't wait for mine. Setting up a Trail build and can't decide on 80 or 100mm. Any feedback from you all? I would like a 80mm fork to keep the bike planted for climbing but also a tough fork that can be ridden. Live in New England and usually on smooth trails, some rock gardens. Hoping for a fork that stand up to some tomfoolery but most 29er 80mm forks are of the SID build. Fragile. Thanks...

    I didn`t notice much climbing difference between 100mm-80mm. (nor steering)

    I use a negative rise stem.

    Sir9 ROCKS!

    After riding my free ride bike pretty exclusively the last six months, this thing feels like a rocket ship. My first ride down a pretty rocky local trail at speed reminded me of why I stopped riding hardtails years ago. Nothing beats the pure, instant acceleration though. This thing is a blast!

    How About Some "tang"

    Just got this built on the weekend and had a short ride in the woods very sweet. Steal Is Real baby my first experience on a steal frame I notice the smoothness right away.

    I started with the Sir as my first SS. i wasn't sure so I tired a One and am back on the Sir. The One was great in the garage, picking it up was satisfying and it was fine on the trail. It was more responsive to pedal strokes on climbs but the Sir was just more fun on flats on descents so that's what I'm going with for now. I just wish the paint wasn't so fragile and it was lighter.

    I actually think my Sir is fairly light for what it is. I had the same Fox fork on my Sir for 6 months and switched to the Niner Carbon fork and never looked back. That would save you almost 2 pounds. Also, I have the Solid Gold color and the first batch of Niner forks did not exactly match the color so you might want to go with black or white. It will still look great and match any future colors too.

    I've only ridden rigid twice, once was on a Niner carbon frame and fork. Either way it felt unnatural to me so I'm not ready for that step. I'll have to live with 23lbs.

    I guess I am the opposite. I had only ridden full sus and then they recalled my jet and I bought the Sir and put the fork in it and the more I rode it the more I liked the fork locked. The last month I rode with the Fox fork I think I left it locked the whole time. Then I put the carbon fork on and liked it even better. Now I ride the Sir way more than my new Jet that is fabulous.

    Fall Upgrades

    The Godzilla SIR9 has finally received some upgrades after 2 years. I cut down the XTR960 cranks, added some new 2-ti's, installed Magura Marta Brakes, Stans Crest/Hope wheelset, a 2.4 and 2.25 RR, Ergon carbon grips, and a used Niner Carbon fork. She's now sitting at 18.9 lbs! I still think it's one of the nicest feeling frames I've ever owned.
