Post photos and spec. How does it fit your riding style?
Currently, 19.9 lbs. Will be trying Specialized Turbo tubes and Karma rear tire so will be 19.3 lbs shortly.

Not sure what my riding style is but I friggin love riding this bike! I have it dialed in EXACTLY where I want it now. Started with Karate Monkey fork, tried the Reba, now the Pace. Swapped a few other parts to get where I am and am proud to say I nailed it.

XL is the PERFECT size for me!!!!

At 5'5", XL was JUST the right size....

Just kidding. That's my friend Chris who likes to hop around on my bike when I'm not busy.

My SIR9 is back to being a single speed agian. I'm very happy about that. It doesn't suck at all.

Tange Large Sir 9, pretty basic build, King headset, Easton alum bars, Reba, LX cranks, Magura Juile brakes, Frank built XT w'Delgado wheelset (for geared use), XTR rear der, Sram triggers, and well worn B17 saddle.. After I sell my boat, I'll get Frank to build a nice set of ss wheels, probably with Kings and DT rims.
