    Show your SIR 9's!

    There are a few SIR 9's separately around the forum, but I seek a big heap of photos and spec talk around this most desirable piece of metal. Hope I get some company.

    I'll start off with my own: a 2008 SIR 9 , large, color tang. Wheels are Chris King hubs built with Mavic TN719 and some Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2,25", the rest is stuff like XTR pedals on Middleburn cranks, Avid Juicy 7 brakes, Thomson/ RaceFace controls on King headset, WTB saddle on Thomson post. Oh, and sorry about the duct tape on the seatpost to all you eagle-eyed connoiseurs. It's handy, if not beautiful.

    Weight is somewhere around 10,2 kg (22,5lbs).

    Mine is a very similar build.

    Large frame. King hubs and headset, Flow rims RR tyres (2.4 up front is great for rigid)
    Eriksen 400mm ti post, Rocket V (SLT?) saddle, Ritchey WCS cockpit, Ozriders foam grips. BB7 brakes, xt cranks. Salsa skewers and clamp
    Raketmaskin, what does yours weigh? Never weighed mine but intend to.
    Things I'd like to change: get rid of the basic pedals and fit XTR, new lightweight rotors.
    Down the track change to lightweight hydros and a middleburn crank.

    Here is mine when it was built up, but its gone through some changes recently. Notably went to a set of ENO cranks, Juicy brakes with Goodridge Lines, and a custom wheelset with Arch rims and Hope Pro II hubs built by Larry at Mountain High.

    From Stories from the Front Range...


    The latest, albeit crappy, pic I have of it
    From West Mag Ride


    And one of my favorite pics, of what is my favorite bike:

    Jdub, cool to see your bike. I saw pictures of your bike this spring, when I was looking for a frame and build for my 29 SS project. Your frame and fork with the black parts made me choose the build for my own bike. Kudos, if I get the term right, is in place.

    That's cool. Travel anywhere, one speed or 27... (feel like such a tool when I use one of those things.)

    Mine is similar to most of the others. Large Tang, I9 Enduro (Flows), K24 brakes, Nevegal / WW tires.

    It's a great bike. Am going to give the Conti Mountain Kings / Racing Ralph 2.4s a go for a 12 hour race (in a team) this weekend.

    Sweet indeed!

    What length stem? And what size is your frame, it looks like a M. My SIR is going tubeless very soon, and maybe one of those Ti seat posts too - ooohhh yes.

    Interesting DT cable routing. Mine is 1x9 so never had to work that one out

    Did I say sweet?

    Built last March.

    I changed out the low rise to a salsa carbon straight bar!

    Thanks Ernesto for a great build

    Its a small, stem is 70mm. I prefer the steering with a short stem but wanted a long cockpit so I went with a setback post. Rides great.

    As for the dt routing, I did it like that to give the headtube a cleaner look. I`ll be giving it a spin on the local trails tonight and I need to get used to gears. I`m going tubless too, another thing I havn`t tried.

    @av8trinabarrel, your ride looks great.
