    *****

    My main riding buddy has this bike. He's got it built up very sweet with SRAM's top components and got it down to about 20 lbs and change. I've ridden it a few times and it's a great bike. I like the feel of this one as it doesn't feel like some 29ers in that you're on wagon wheels. This one is pretty nimble. It's fast too. That sub-21 lb on his bike doesn't hurt.

    Pros
    Weight
    Build quality
    Paint
    Warranty

    Cons
    None

    Anybody looking for a really fast race bike will love this thing. Built up with the right components, you can have easily (but not cheaply) have a full build under 20 lbs.

    Pros
    -Stupid light. My full build is 19.5 lbs
    -Handles like a much smaller bike
    -Fastest bike I've ever ridden
    -Niner has excellent customer service and a great exchange/upgrade program for totalled frames.

    Cons
    -The eccentric bb can be a pain for some to setup initially. I had the LBS handle it.

    Solid bike, though I imagined a much more exciting experience after all the hype I had heard and read about Niners.

    Pros
    Good component mix. Fairly lightweight frame.

    Cons
    Geometry feels a little compressed to me, leaving me sitting more upright on the bike. The bike I rode may not have been the right size but the chainstays were noticeably shorter than on my d660 (which is good or bad, depending on what you're looking for).

    So light it's unfair and crazy easy on your bones, there's nothing I'd rather race for the money.

    Pros
    Fast frame with a really compliant ride. Perfect flex and geometry.

    Cons
    Low color combinations and choices available.

    I've ridden a friends and instantly become jealous. I've seen them on other forums built as light as 13pounds and still raceable. I would really love one for christmas.

    Pros
    Smooth lines. Great paint schemes and when paired with the Niner fork light.

    Love it! Got it at Johnny Sprockets in Chicago.

    Pros
    It's like conventional MB with big wheels. Handles great, climbs awesome. It has Kenda small block 8s and it is a fast bike.

    Cons
    Nothing as of yet
