fork is a 2010 120mm
paul sadoff hit it as always. The bike has been a blast. The Ahrens sliders and yokes are great. The sliders give me the option of playing with chainstay length which in turn changes the ride..I love the saint derailuer. Avid elixir brakes are awesome and well hell the bike is overall fantastic.
it is setup AM for the most part.

So, you 1x9'd your '09 3x9? What specifically did you change, and how do you like the revised gearing set-up?

it's a 2x9. i removed the tab's from a xtr m960 crankset and run the blackspire middle/granny rings. I originally wanted to do a 1x9 but there are times when i need my granny, so i decided to keep it.

the only things that are original to the stock setup is the fork, headset and seatpost. I plan on changing the fork cartridges to the new fox fit within the month and replace the seatpost soon.

i really like the frame and fork combo. when i first bought it i put a reba on there and it totally screwed the handling.

im new to this, so the idea is getting a frame that uses 26 in wheels and and fork that uses 29 in wheels

or is it a frame that uses 29 in wheels, and instead you just get a 26 in wheel and shorter crank arms

im confused :confused:
