    Return to Steel: Niner Sir 9

    Just picked up my Sir 9 from my LBS. Had to sell my beloved Misfit DiSSent to get this one, but I look forward to the ride of 853 coupled with the carbon fork. Swapped most of the parts over including my Hope SS hubs on Stan's Flow rims. Should be sweet!

    As much as I detest EBB's, that's a sweet looking bike.

    Be sure to post your comparison thoughts after you've ridden it for a while.

    **********!!? I'll have to get back to you on that. So far, I've only ridden it across my driveway. For what it cost, I hope it works well.

    You'll love it! Mines a similar build. Weighs just north of 22 lbs.


    UMarth aside, the Carbon fork is definitely deserved. I added the Niner carbon bars as well and it's a nice ride. I'd recommend applying some frame saver if you ride in the wet and picking up a bottle of Carbo grip for your EBB

    Love the look of the see-through bash guard!

    What is it and is it functional? Is it running on a regular crankset or single-specfic?
