    Sea Otter Pics

    Here's one interesting 29er related item that I had a chance to see today at the Sea Weasel Classic:



    The semi-mythical Edge Composites/Industry Nine 29er AM wheel.

    Please feel free to add in your own SOC pictures to this thread.

    I believe it is a new spoke from I9 that fits. Pretty sure they mentioned it at NAHBS...still hoping for a tubeless version of the rim

    - I spoke to the guy's there yesterday and it is a new spoke design. And yes, it's a ridiculight wheel.

    New design of the spoke head and a new rim with larger diameter spoke holes. Neither is compatible with anything else.

    So it's 140mm rear travel, and still stuck with using the Reba at 120mm on the front? Or is this the stealth debut of a 140mm RS fork?

    Looks like x7, x9 and XO are all going 2x10.

    No sh!t right? Just thinking the same thing, could have at least slapped on a 44 or WB, but a Reba 120? ..Looks interesting just the same though (well from behind the fork and back that is) That headtube looks KILLER...2TNE What's up brother how's everything going? how is the 429? How was Sea Otter? CF.

    anyone know how do the i9 spokes play at higher tension? i re-trued the front edge am wheel i have the other day after an unfortunate incident that left me with a pretty bruised up set of ribs and about 1mm of play in the rim...and was pretty stunned again by the tension they take.

    i know what you mean jay, a tubeless ready version would be pretty sweet. although im wondering if tubs would be so bad? hmmm!

    I think it may be a 140 Reba. Or hoping it a 140 Reba.

    Talk to the boys at Niner. I saw the 140mm Reba in their booth. RS didn't even have it displayed.

    Same chassis, only offered with a tapered steerer tube/crown.

    Pictures later...

    That's great news. Will be getting one once they are available. I hope they do a standard 1 1/8 also.

    The huge news I was waiting for. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
    For the next answer I'm going to guess September.

    RS would have the business sense of a baboon to make 140mm only in tapered (exception being it's not safe otherwise). They'll be missing the 120mm rear travel/standard 1 1/8th HT market folks who'd be happier to go with an extra inch of front squish, all to save a couple bucks to not press in an 1 1/8th steerer. I want!

    Essentially, that's what they told me. The extra 20mm of length was just too much leverage for a 1-1/8" crown/steerer interface. Even if it is safe, the ride quality would be way less than ideal.

    A few more 29er-related photos...

    Another interesting fabrication from Black Sheep:

    A Ti 29er Tandem with S&S couplers and what looks like a rear end that can take an Endomorph-class tire.

    An Air 9 Carbon with SRAM's 2x10 X.0 gruppo:


    A Sultan running 1x10 with the new 10 speed XT parts:

    Hey CF, things are going well. Just enjoying life, riding when I can. The 429 is great. I am so happy that I was able to get it. How've you been? How's Sane Fred? Haven't seen him around here for a while.

    Sea Otter was a good time. This year it was a quick trip (< 36 hours door-to-door), so I was kinda rushed in the expo area. Weather was perfect, the riding was the best I've ever seen it for SOC.
