    Ouch! More power to you. Even with the 100mm REBA, large volume tubeless tires - the bike can be rough on my back and neck compared to my full suspension bikes. No surprise there, but with proper tires and air pressure - most of that roughness can be mitigated.

    Of course, it's a dream when compared to a cyclocross bike and the pounding one takes on hammering a rough course during a cyclocross race.

    I would think the Dos Niner frame's longevity would be better (as in longer) with a suspension fork compared to running it rigid.

    Mine is pretty dang comfy with the big squish tires set at a low psi (around 19-20 psi) and 100mm fork...

    I think it takes a pretty optimistic person to buy a used Dos Niner.

    I want to show my salsa DosNiner.

    I love it, simple and comfortable.

    And one thing that I also like, here in Spain is very rarely seen, is quite exclusive.

    Wow, I am intrigued by the Dos Niners, have been ever since I first saw them, back in 2008. I think I now want one....can you guys educate me.....What was the last year of production, 2010? What year was it when they strengthened the chain stay BB joint, to help prevent the cracking. Thanks
    Klunk on............

    The last production model (slippery silver) was 2010: Dos Niner | Bikes | Salsa Cycles

    This will be my 5th season on it and everything still looks good, but 4-5 years for a Scandium frame is just about all that one can expect out of it. Others, even with the slippery silver frame, experienced cracks and breaks much earlier. Mine shares time in the garage with other bikes, so most likely accounts for the extended duration I am getting out of it.

    If you are shopping around for a used one, just be aware that the life expectancy is what it is and buying at this point means (unless the frame is still new in the box or simply has not been ridden much), you are at the tail end of what one could expect to get out of this frame.

    Thinking about a dos niner...

    Thinking about buying a used dos niner frame set to build. I know the earlier versions of this frame were prone to cracking issues and discontinued. Found one locally and I'm thinking about it. Anyone own one and thoughts on this build?

    I had the older version and it broke at the dropouts. Salsa was fantastic and warrantied it very quickly. The newer edition (2010, I think) had an extra welded section. I haven't had any issues.
    An engineer friend said that a frame like this is probably better suited to smaller riders (something about lever arms and flex at that joint, not to mention weight).
    Hope that helps.
