Enduro P9 - Full Suspension - Modern Geo - Ican 29er build
« on: November 06, 2017, 02:43:24 PM »
Been seeing a lot of posts around the 29er forum regarding a modern geometry. My take - none of these china carbon companies has modern geo of full suspension enduro bikes raced in EWS. However this build of mine is the closest thing:


This bike was build 2 months ago. It's currently 66.5 degrees (could be 66). It has boost. It has metric sizing shock. It's running 29s. It's been whistler bike park proven (black technicals, blue jump trails).

I came from a 2016 Reign 27.5 Medium which was smaller and slacker.  I am very happy with with the 66.5 HA with my current setup from riding a Norco c9.1 Large, my issues was that the wheelbase was so long from the slackness+29, i couldn't handle it properly. Turns in and out of berms was on the Norco required a lot of body english, overall just felt it required much more finesse than required. With this p9 as a slightly steeper HA - 66.5ish, it felt right - agile like the Reign, but much longer and much faster.

Specs:

DVO Diamond Boost - 150mm (currently at 66.5 degrees HA - 160mm would make it 66 degrees)
DVO Topaz - 210x55 (22mm bushing top and bottom, 150mm travel)
GX Eagle Drivetrain
Magura Trail Sport Brakes (203/180)
Spank Oozt 345 Trail CX Ray - DHR II 2.4 WT DC (10mm of clearance space)
Giant 150mm Dropper (2017 - internal routing)
SDG Fly Mtn Saddle
Answer SL 780mm Bar
Husselfelt 40mm Stem
Lizardskin frame and Chainstay Protector
OneUp Composite Pedals
Threaded BB 73 (330mm Ground clearance)

Yes, great build and good looking bike!!! I think what we are seeing now is the Enduro/AM riders are starting to look for Chiner bikes. The Chiner market was dominated by hardtails and XC frames. Hopefully in the next couple of years you'll see slacker headtubes and longer suspension designs come from the Chiner builders.

yes i totally agree...on the 29er topic, i do have to say this P9 is very similar to many Long travel 29ers out there currently in North America...

150mm rear, (150 or 160 front), 66 Head angle, sizing etc.

it's definitely not as aggressive as the race bike 29ers (trek slash etc) but this thing is hella of a good/fun aggressive trail or Enduro/AM bike.

Where did you source the frame for this build?  I'm moving to North Georgia in the next few months and I'm thinking of building an enduro/AM bike for up there.  This is the first bike of this kind from Chinese builders I have seen that truly interests me.

Got this from www.icanbikes.com. I reached out to the email provided on the website and Melody was easy to deal with via email and responsive.
