    Tsl

    Seeing the pics of the TSL frames from Interbike have me wanting more. I recall reading that there would be some sort of survey around what configurations riders would want in a ti frame, so I thought I'd throw out my ideal spec.

    - Single speed
    - Paragon like sliding drop outs (I know - a stretch but what the heck)
    - 3-4 inch suspension fork compatible geometry
    - No cable stops, clean frame
    - SIR 9 like geometry

    I ride a SIR 9 now and think the geometry is spot on for me - love the bike. My dream is to have a ti version built by a custom builder in the next year or so. The TSL could present another option, maybe save me a little $ too.

    What would everyone else like to see from a TI Niner?

    I'd like my Sir9 replicated in titanium. Ebb or sliders - either works for me. Even though I only run the Sir in singlespeed trim, I'm ok with having the cable stops on there so I have the option of gears. DEFINATELY compatible with a suspension fork - I run a Niner rigid, a Pace carbon, and a Reba - soon to be Fox.

    Oh - and hurry up and get this one to market...I like it.

    Yup, nice looking frame was hoping Niner would post up some more detailed info and photos of it for us They said they'd post a poll asking whether SS or geared, nothing more. It is going to be rigid, non sus corrected as far as Chris said on the iBike video interview, also limited edition only a handful or so produced a year.

    Definitely want the EBB. Methinks that a ti version of the SIR-9 would be the cat's meow. Options for most setups you might want. Maybe match it with a reenforced rigid ti fork for us heavier riders....

    Guess I missed this, was tuned out... any links to Interbike?
    All problems in mountain biking can be solved by going faster, except the ones that are caused by going too fast.
