A little Christmas Gift to myself...











*KM Frame (XL/22")
*Niner Carbon Fork (Nude)
*Wheelset: Hope Pro 2's SS Rear: F(36h. Gordo w/DT Swiss Comps) R(36h. Semi w/DT Swiss Comps)
*Tires: (F) WTB/Niner Kodiak (R) Panaracer Rampage
*Crank: White Industries ENO (36t.)
*BB: Phil Wood Stainless
*Brakes: Avid BB7's 160mm. F/R
*Levers: Cane Creek Drop V's
*Bars: On-One Midge w/ ESI Road Grips covered in Fizik Microtex Tape
*Stem: Salsa S.U.L. 80mm. w/40dg. Rise
*Cog: Surly Steel (20t.)
*Headset: Chris King
*Seatpost: Thomson
*Pedals: Crank Bros. Eggbeaters
*Chain: KMC Kool
*Bottle Cages: Salsa Nick-less Cages

I also have a set of Chromo On-One Mary Bars w/ a longer Salsa Stem, Ergon GP1 Lights with Cane Creek Direct Curve Levers. I am going to try that set up next week. I am also going to eventually try a FAT Front Set-up with a 100mm. PUG Fork, Large Marge/Larry combo. Just a little concerned about the weight that would be added. As is she weighs in @

28.24lbs.

Kind of a pig but that is kind of what I set out to do...

Bomb Proof & Burly!

Enjoy,

PF

That's a beautiful monkey! Pretty much my dream-monkey with a Larry on the front.

I'm surprised it weighs that much with the carbon fork and all, but I suppose those fat tyres are pretty porky.

Just bought a KM. Thinking about the niner fork. How does she handle with this fork? Have you also ridden the steel KM fork?

Thanks!

Love your KM!

I am interested in knowing the changes in handing with a Niner carbon fork from the stock Surly fork as well . The Niner fork is 3 mm shorter but has more offset .

Nice "Drop Bar Gorilla"!
