    Very Good Sir!

    Here is my newly built Sir9. I've taken her out on her maiden voyage and she performed flawlessly. 22.1 pounds and I didn't miss my full suspension at all. 32x20 gearing for Park City's rocky and steep rides. Steel is indeed real young fella's!

    You're welcome!

    I'm sure stronger fella's could run higher gearing, but most folks I've talked to run the 32x20. Thanks!

    That tubing is classy.

    I think 32x20 is pretty manly if you are cranking around Park City.

    What a great looking bike.

    As for gearing, use what serves you and don't pay attention to what anyone else thinks.

    Best to you, Sir.

    Is that a faux pas, like spelling "dog," d-a-w-g? I just gotta know to avoid such embarrassments in the future.

    Thanks for all the comments!

    @Isuckatriding...Thanks for the humor, it's funny how picky some people get on here, oh wells! Keep the laughs coming!

    @Sparticus...Thanks! It's pretty steep out here and I rode the mid mountain trail already and will take the Sir out for some more Park City rides this weekend. I'll use the gearing I have and hopefully get stronger for racing next season.

    @Morgan-Tec...Thanks! I love those Edge (I guess they are Enve now) wheels. They are so stiff and light and great looking! I have converted them to Stans tubeless and they hold the fluid and air perfectly!

    Here's a few pics from my Park City maiden voyage.

    Even though I'm 30 min from PC, still haven't ridden out there yet. Can't get away from the SL valley trails.

    Nice build, btw.

    Dang, that looks like a fun area to ride bikes. I just got back from what was supposed to be a 12 day road trip... cut short by 3 days by storms. We were going to hit Park City for a day or two on our way back to Orygun but the weather in the SW turned to cr@p so we bolted home after hitting Moab, Fruita and GJ.

    Drove right past you 2 days ago. Hope to get there one of these years.

    Those pics look like Spiro trail. I too ride 32-20 ratio in the mountainous SLC area. I would rather spin on flats than suffer grinding up steeps. I also love the Flying Dog trail system in PC....Goodtimes!!!!

    Want to get out there and ride next year. Moab, Goose areas etc. seem to get more proaps & exposure (literally ) then the PC area but the xc terrain there is more to my liking.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    @ Sparticus: That's too bad you missed PC, I think the trails are the best in Utah after Moab. I hope you can make it out again!

    @ Vindiggitydog: Yes, exactly! I was on Spiro just about to the new section of the MM trail. It was a great ride and the spinning back on the road sucked but everything else was great. I did FD on Saturday and that was perfect gearing for that trail, one of the best in the PC area for sure!

    @P-nut: I hope to see you out in PC, it's pretty amazing!

    @ Voodoochild: I don't care what people say about gearing or manliness...biking in whatever gear on whatever bike on whatever trail is better than blobbing out on the couch!

    In Utah you never can Tell

    @ JMac: Hopefully a few more weeks. the weather is warm all week, and it looks like it's going to stay consistent in the high 50's to mid 60's for a few weeks. That's good enough for me! As long as the storms stays away the upper elevation trails will stay snow free and remain rideable. I'm planning on racing my Sir in a few cyclocross races though.

    Ebb...

    I haven't had any problems with it at all. That being said, I've only done a few rides around town and 2 long rides with a lot of climbing in the mountains. I'll keep y'all posted!
