My pdc 825 is almost sold, and i'm looking for a frame to replace it. my budget allows me to buy something up to 1300. I'm strongly considering a v10; it is one of my favourite bikes but i don't know if i'll find one in decent shape for the money i've got; besides, i would like to try something else... i've always liked the looks on the r9, and never readed anything bad about it, so it seems like a good option. Coming from a 13.8" BB bike, i'm a little bit concerned about the 14.75" height claimed on sinister's site. I've read that the bike is designed to ride with about 40% sag. Is that true? that would make it low enough for me, i think. Are the angles shown on sinister's site measured with the shock mounted in the middle position? How much do these change when mounted in the other holes? Test riding one isn't an option because there aren't any r9s in my country. I'll love to hear anything you have to say about the bike... i used the search function but i couldn't find much usefull info.
