Maybe I am just an idjut, but where are the reviews for this bike in the "review" section of mtbr??

All I can find is the Air 9 aluminum. I want to see what lots of folks are saying about this frame. None of my buddies are on this frame, so I can't test one..

Any ideas?

I love mine. I had the scandium version before w/Ignitor tires. I liked it too, but was considering getting a RIP9 due to my teeth chattering out of my head when I went down a fast downhill.

I mentioned the Ignitor tires (2.1) above because I swapped to Racing Ralphs (2.25) with the A9C. I now have no desire to get a FS bike. The frame tracks very well in turns and seems to absorb a lot of trail chatter (not sure how much of this is the tires).

Also, when I pedaled hard on the scandium frame, in the smallest chainring, the rear of my derailleur would hit my tire. If the carbon frame flexes in this manner, I cannot see it.

Finally, the bling factor is amazing, IMO. Hope this helps.
