Some of the earlier versions didn't have this and were a pain. I know because I had one. SRAM XX shifters, crank and front derailleur and cassette. I went that way because you can lock the cage forward when taking the wheel off. Also INCLUDED will be a brand new set of chain rings and cassette.
It doesn't need it, but you'll have it. If you want I can install and you'll have a brand new drivetrain. Will update if I have a new chain too, not sure. Rockshox SID XX World Cup with lockout.Rear of frame is QR 135mm. They aren't known for the best engagement in the rear, just FYI. One is a trail and one is a race, thus the different finishes. If you want to pay less, I have a set of the same hubs with Crest Rims on different bike. Schwalbe tires in good shape.
Not sure how much Stans is left in there but I'll include a couple small bottles for you. If you want a setback post, I have a black Thomson Elite 400mm post I'd swap for you.If you want something a little longer I have a Niner RDO 110mm stem I'd swap for you. I think that is it. Let me know if you have questions.
The bike is not new obviously and does have nicks and scratches. Nothing structural or that gives me any concern. It's going to cost a lot more though. Notice that it does say Jet 9 on it. It is very much a hard tail Air 9.When I got it I had the option of sending it back to get it corrected. It bothered me until the first 100 feet into the first ride. Also have an older Air9 Aluminum listed.
My intention is to only sell one of the two, so if the other sells, I may just keep this one.
