    2nd 29er, 2nd SS, 1st post, Its not easy being green.

    As the title suggest this is my first post. My 2nd 29er, first is a KM (geared), which I still own. My 2nd SS, first was a Bianchi Bass. I sold the BASS to fund the Monkey. Got hooked after monkeying around with the Monkey, so made the leap to the SIR 9.
    Anyway just wanted to post some pics and get some opinions before everyone gets bored, or worse annoyed by another Green Bike. Most components are easily identified, and weight comes in at ~23 1/3lb.s. So for your enjoyment or criticism, my bike.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    That's what I was told by the person I picked them up from, on Ebay. Square taper, 180mm, compact cranks, RF Turbines. Just by chance the color was pretty dam close to Kermit Green

    Plus I thought it might be different from all those mirror polished cranks we will all be just as tired of looking at besides Green Bikes.

    Please don't be offended, I actually like the color Green. It is my 6 yr old niece's favorite color, she picked the color from the posted Niner pic.s when they were first previewed on the forum. Its her favorite bicycle in my garage, and very quickly becoming my favorite also.
    If I had the time and effort I have some older cranks I would love to have polished to a mirror finish, but the skin on my hands probably coudn't take it.

    By the way is that a Green hub peeking out just under you Reba?

    I saw those cranks (or a pair just like them) on eBay a few months ago. They're perfect. They absolutely make the bike. It's screaming out for a pair of these, though.

    That is a hot bike. I've lusted after a Kermit Green SIR 9 since the first batch of pictures were released and that build is spot on. I hope the Monocog 29ers get here quick before I wind up doing something rash and ordering a SIR 9 package, even though the KG ones are all gone .
