Strengths:    strong, a work of art, easy to change from gears to SS

Weaknesses:    kind of heavy (but its steel), EBB can be a pain sometimes, little pricey

Bottom Line:   
I currently have mine set up SS. After the first ride my EEB came loose, I followed all the recommended install instructions and haven't had a problem sense. I was riding a Jabberwocky prior, that bike was stable, but the SIR9 is easier to throw around on switchbacks and the steel feels more plush, and nimble, Plus I could never run gears on my Jabber for bike packing. I also Had a Niner AIR9 that bike was fast, but it bounced me around all over the place, I prefer the Steel. The Niners Geo seems to fit me the best.

Niner S.I.R. 9 - First SS, First Build

So my first real post on mtbr, taken me a while, need to stop being such a lurker. (My first 5 were so I could post this in the SS forum, rather than general). I want to build a SS 29er, I've got some idea of the kind of bike I want, and I have the money (or will as I buy components) to put it t ... Read More »

Niner S.I.R. 9 Opinions

Hey guys what do you think of the Bio-Centric BB system? I am pretty much at wit's end for the ideal steel bike for SS and geared platform. I go either a Niner or something else. A bike I can race with but have fun with a SS, it must be steel or ti. A bike frame to end it all.Read More »
