Another Niner makes it’s way into the home stable. Current weight is 24.5lbs with pedals, but we are still waiting for the Niner Flat Top bars before we get everything into it’s final position. Then we’ll cut down the steerer again, and shorten the brake lines and derailleur cables.
Still, a very respectable weight considering that we didn’t build it up to be light.
We built it up to be guch.
The SRAM X0 Mid Cage derailleur is about as decadent as you can get, not to mention the Chris King hubs. The cassette is a SRAM PG990, which features a machined billet aluminum cog carrier. It’s anodized red.
The tires are Maxxis Ignitors, almost as wide as the Exiwolf 2.3, but about 100g lighter.
If the rain holds off, it gets to go for it’s maiden voyage tonight. We’ll get to see how it measures up, and more importantly, we’ll see just how comfy that WTB Deva saddle is.
It certainly looks sweet….
