    Looks like an old Flite saddle. I have two of them still. Great saddles but I always had them on my road bike.

    Nice looking rig you have yourself there. I just got two sets of those same bars for like $29.00. Great strong bars for hardcore out of the saddle grinding.

    Those bars are still the most comfortable bars for my hands and I have tried about everything out there. I like them because of the bend and stiffness. I have them on all my bikes. I may get another pair before they disappear.

    To your point on out of the saddle ridding, Stem stiffness is important too so I now have an old EA70 that looks like a tank but it feels Like an extra gear.

    The bike weight 22 lbs with the EA70 stem (200g) and everything including pedals. I can get it sub 20 easy if I go rigid.....And change a few real rider parts for weight weenie parts.

    Scott "Mellow Catt",
    I moved to Dallas about 2 years ago... Miss Brown county dearly. And Nebo ridge for that matter.

    Thanks for the post zionrasta! That rasta headset is the headset of champions. Champions danked out! I'm one of the same. Saw a new XL one9 with the previous EBB style on eslay a few days ago sold for $535 shipped. Was having visions of the niner carbon fork to go along with it since the carbon fork looks better on the gx2 tubing than the thinner steel. But even in the nude, that doggone massive logo. BTW, diggin' the XTR brakeset!

    A few changes since the picture....

    Changed the ENO squre taper Crankset for an XTR M960 with a boone BAshguard and a Blackspire mono veloce. The Biocentric EBB works better with outboard bearings that with a normal BB. Also changed the stem for a EA70 circa 2002 - stiff as hell. I can feel the Hope flex.

    The plumbers tape trick that work so well with the old EBB on my SIR, blow donkey balls on the new biocentric so I use Permatex anti-seize.

    The best frame I have ever ridden period! The One 9 blow the pants out of the SIR. I did not know how much the SIR flexed until I rode the One9.

    I am cosidering selling my last Turner to get an Air 9. Sold the 5 spot HL, I still have the Flux hanging from the wall.

    I cant stand 26" wheels anymore........................................... ...........

    The ONE 9, is like an orgasm on wheels.....
