Frame arrived last week but I been abroad so picked it up this morning. Unpacked it and it seems in good shape, quality looks perfect, no imperfections or so. Sofar only tested to install the manitou Macleod rear shock and it fitted with no issues with the bushings I ordered. Unfortunatly I ordered the wrong Milo remote kit which is for front forks and not rear so I need to order the correct one to fit a remote.

The problem now is my bike wasnt on my flight home yesterday so Im waiting for British Airways to deliver it to my house so I can start picking parts off my old bike.

Ill post pictures of the build here:

Remember that the reach is quite long on this frame. this 19" is longer than my previous XL Scott Genius.

Among all I have talked to there is an consensus that plus tires are bad in the mud. You could not compare 3.0 nobby nick vs 2.25 NN... The weight and grip in other conditions are very different between these two. If you f.eks. compare 3.0 NN vs 2.4 Magic mary, there are way different grip in mud. The 3.0 does not even get close. Luckily I dont have to much mud on the trails around here, most rock, and then the plus tires really shine!

New here...I will be taking delivery of an Ican P9 next week. Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh. Will post back with pics etc....

I am looking into ordering this frame in the next couple weeks. Did you order rear shock with it?

I ordered a rs super deluxe through them.  Not in stock until end of the month. They also supplied me with an x fusion sweep roughcut for cheaps! Just need to prove to customs the low value!!?

I ordered mine too with a super delux. Let's start another forum thread specifically for the p9. We can give reviews and update each other on build...

One problem I see is that my xx1 cranks are Bb30 and all of these frames seem to be either BSA or Bb92. Are there any frames I could use my  crankset with?
Long spindle BB30 crank can be used with both 73/68mm english threaded (BSA30) and BB92 (RF cinch bb92 bb) bottom bracket shells. I did both using my S2200 crank.

29er / Deciding on a Frame
« Last post by Jsquared89 on August 07, 2017, 12:04:20 PM »
I've been reading through this and other forums for a while now, doing research and trying to decide on a frame. But it's getting overwhelming, so I'm going to ask for some help. Lol Right now I'm riding a Niner One9rdo with xx1 drivetrain, Sram Guide Rs brakes, DT Swiss wheels and hubs. A few weeks ago I rode by buddy's Pivot Mach 6 and almost immediately decided that I need a full suspension bike. So I am looking for a frame that I can build into a Trail/All mountain rig, while using the most parts from my Niner as possible. Aside from a new/longer fork and rear shock obviously. I've been looking at the M06, Fm356, Fm058.

One problem I see is that my xx1 cranks are Bb30 and all of these frames seem to be either BSA or Bb92. Are there any frames I could use my  crankset with?

I was able to manually seat a 2.25 TB SS on a 34mm (29mm internal) rim and pop the bead with a track pump, but thw second tire required much higher air flow. Hopefully, my set will last for a while.

At 6'-2" (US measurements) I would have expected you to have a 21" frame but that decision is purely your personal preference.  If the size of the bike feels correct to you that's what is most important.

The 6Fattie has 150mm travel front, 135mm rear, which works well for the trails in my area.  I miss not having a lockout lever right up on the bars for long steep climbs.

I don't find my plus tires bad in the mud, just the opposite in that I feel I get more grip without sinking as far into the mud.  However, I can understand how you may like the skinnier tires that might dig in and have a more natural feel in a mud rut.

While I don't see specific markings on the tire stating Snake Skin, I'm pretty sure that's what I had ordered.  This is the 3rd Burt I've had on here.  The first lasted about 500 miles, and was worn out.  The second, lasted about 2-300, got a couple cuts in the sidewall that I couldn't seal, so replaced.

These are a BITCH to mount on my 35mm wide rims 29x2.1, they just don't spread out far enough without doing the install with a tube to seat the bead.  Even after that, it's still a bitch to get the second side to seat after removing the tube.  Either the 2.25 or a 30m wide rim would work better.
