    Simply amazing. The Niner forks are wonderful, especially in that colour!

    Those are just plain old XT rotors! for the time being anyway. I had them so i used them, I'll be getting asama rotots w/ dt centerlock adapter. a salsa crabon 17 degree bar, ti bolts for the bolts that aren't already ti, a niner cog, a probably a lighter seat. should be well under 19.... i'll post pics don't worry.

    I originally ordered a gold frame and fork, they didn't have my size so i got a rootbeer instead. i must admit im really happy i did, the brown is pretty good. i just wished the frame and fork matched... the fork is a whole bunch "red-er" than the frame. still looks good, and i don't really care.

    ive only put maybe a couple hundred K's on the so far, but they seem fine, super light, built like any other stans rim. this will be my third stans wheelset, i've never had a problem, that wasn't my shitty wheel building anyway. im pretty light, (150 pounds), but i like to jump my bike, off everything, and i loft my front and rear wheels around turns all the time, run rigid and low pressure etc... that being said i'm a pretty smooth rider. In any case, stans rims have always been good to me, i'd recommend them.

    Definitely one sweet ride. I've been considering the Racing Ralphs. Is this your first time using them?

    Gorgeous bike! I went with the Solid Gold color option. After seeing yours though, I'm having second thoughts

    How's the ride with steel and carbon? I'm on a SIR with a Reba on front but with a 2.35" front tire and the dampening of a carbon fork I'm tempted...

    'this will be my sixth set of racing ralphs, second 29'er, i had the older gen on my 26'r for a couple seaons, and i ran 35c's on my cross bike. i love schwalbe tires
    ive known a few peopele to rip the side walls, but those were all bigger guys, low low pressure, and on rocks, really just bad luck imo.

    the steel/carbon ride is great, insanely smooth, yet lively and the fork is stiff side to side so the wheel feels solid turning, really has a lot of for-aft movement wich is great as well. i see no need for suspension with this set up, a 2.4 up front for really rough trails/24's might be nice, but im not convinced i need it yet.


    that gold is sweet too!

    I have a Gold Sir too but think your root beer frame and especially fork is hot girl sexy. I won't give up my suspension fork but those color matched Niner carbon forks are good looking.
    How wide are those bars?
