    s.i.r. 9 outdoor porn

    First 29'er (I've ever even seen), first bike I've built myself, first ride on this bike. The 29'er exceeded my expectations, thanks guys. Those wheels eat up rocks roots and log crossings like... well you know. Gotta give credit to Niner and the s.i.r. 9 too, top notch!

    Here's some pics

    Nice ride, nice pics, thanks for sharing. Haven't had a chance to get mine out yet so it's just hanging out in the living room. Was hoping for today but it's snowing...

    What are you running? Are your tires tubed or tubeless? I'm sure you're going to enjoy the heck out of that bike. I can't wait to get mine finished up and out on the trails!

    Sweet ride, perfect build. I agree about those SS 240's Mike builds some sweet hoops.

    Thanks guys. The only thing I might change is to a longer 0 rise stem, but I'm going to give it some time as is.

    Love the Specialized tires too, kind of remind me of the Hutchinson Pythons I used on my susser. Both tires hook up really well in rocks even though they don't look like they should, and do they roll.

    Good job! Wow..

    That green looks really good. Very nice build, and it's a great looking bike.

    Oh..I dunno.. I think a Jones H-bar would set the whole bike off very nicely, myself.

    hub/cog question

    Can you show me a good clode up shot of the freehub with the endless cog and spacers on it? Im curious about using two endless cogs on that exact hub. Does it look like it would work?


    Bike looks great. That color is really cool. Camo in the summer, safety bright in hunting season.

    Sorry I didn't get back to you in the SS forum. Here is a picture of my DT hub/Endless cog. Two would fit no problem. I really think you could put THREE cogs on there if you wanted.

    My camera is not very good, so this is the best I can do. Looks like no problem to run two cogs to me. There are two 3/16" spacers on the right and one same size on the left.

    I really like the wide Niner bars, plenty of sweep and wiiiide. Did not fit through one set of trees on my usual loop. By the looks of the two trees I'm not the only one... two handlebar height rub marks.

    Looks like I won't be riding her for a little while now, those leaf covered trails yesterday are covered with about 12 inches of snow today.

    Where are you dumba$$?

    Our trails here in central CT went from firm and fast on Saturday to covered with 20" of snow on Sunday. Gotta love New England.

    Little pack o' 29ers here in East Hampton, always happy to see others.

    I'm in eastern PA, winter this year has been better than most for riding. Looks like this snow will go away fast too, 50 degrees by the end of this week.

    I've heard there are a few people in this area riding 29'ers, but I haven't run into them yet.

    We have quite a few 29er riders here around Baltimore. The movement seems to picking up.
    What size Niner did you get?

    Where in eastern PA are you? I'm outside of Philadelphia and I don't think I've seen more than one 29er on my local trails. Perhaps I'm not looking hard enough.

    Your bike looks great. Enjoy! If you see a tang Niner coming your way, it just might be me!

    I'm in the Lehigh Valley, Bethlehem to be exact.

    The bike is a Medium, I'm barefoot 5'10 with a 32" inseam... fits me perfectly.

    I'm guessing this will be a good year for 29'ers. There's certainly more chatter about it, and there are quite a few singlespeeders here too, which seems to be a big draw to the big wheels.

    Ditto that!
    I love the green steerer peeking through the X-4.

    I'll be moving to Pittsburgh at the end of May... add another 29er to the state of PA!

    Nice

    Nice ride, and excellent color! I can't wait to get mine built up and ridden!

    I had to ride my 26" SS this weekend, and my head just wasn't into it. I kept thinking, if I had my bigger wheels, I could take this line or that line or this drop would be so much nicer on big wheels. Ugh! Can't wait to get my small built up!

    How are the Fasttrac tires on SS? Your trails look a lot like my favorite local trail. Is the 2.0 comfy enough for rigid 29er? Thanks.

    I've only had that one ride on them, but I have to say they are great so far. I used to ride a 26" rigid singlespeed and I don't feel I ever found tires that worked as well as the FastTrac 29'er did. You know how if the tires are not right you know it, frustrating. Well the FastTracs weren't even noticed on the ride, they just did their job. Hooked up great in rocks, rode very smooth and rolled really well, I'm sure part of the smooth was the large wheel.

    That's it...

    That is exactly what a 29er singlespeed should be.. Great build and enjoy...

    just scored a set of FAsttracks for $50. Working on parts for the monocog. Figure I'll go light where I can. You've got me charged for the bike to get here.

    I may cut them down in the future, but they felt really good as is. Have to see how often the length is a clearance issue.
