I know niner had a SIR nine prototype at interbike. Anyone actually ride it? I am really interested in differences in ride quality/handling/acceleration.stability of scandium vs steel. Yes I know the geometry is pretty much the same but want to know what the materials account for.

Yes. I've ridden it. About 200 miles worth.

It rides like steel.

It's properly stiff at the BB junction. Not quite as stiff as my steel Vulture, but it weighs 5lbs less too.

It's a great ride.
