And We’re Off!

So the Niner Air 9 has proven to be a high-demand product. After what seemed to be forever, my Niner Air 9 arrived today. My project of building this bike one piece at a time is now a reality. My only fear is not building it one piece at a time due to the excitement and anticipation of hitting the trails.

Here goes my attempt and beginning of the build.

First up is one of my favorite Syncros products; The Syncros FL Carbon Saddle.

This beauty weighs in at just 180 grams, with carbon rails, a nylon/carbon shell and a very durable micro fiber cover.

What’s in store for the rest of this bike you might ask? Of course, I’m going to make this Niner scream Syncros, which will be very cool when complete. The drive train is still undecided, but likely one of the 2×10 systems out there right now. I’m running a Rotor 3D crankset and rings on my road bike and will definitely utilize Rotor rings on this build…likely their new 2×10 3D crankset also.

This is going to be a fun project – Stay tuned…
