The American bike manufacturer Niner Bikes has something very special up its sleeve for the coming year. The two hardtails sir 9 and One 9 RDO it will be in the new Blaze Yellow-Give color combination. In the future, not only will the very individual paintwork be used, but new paths will also be taken with the equipment.
//One 9 RDO
The One 9 RDO is the top-class carbon race hardtail from Niner Bikes. For the bike, the tried and tested single-speed construction of the One 9 with the award-winning Air 9 RDO-Carbon chassis. The result is a thoroughbred race bike with only one gear. The chain tension can be adjusted by an adjustable bottom bracket, the Biocentric bottom bracket.
The complete bike will be available in a total of three variants (also with Sram XX1), whereby only dollar prices are known so far:
One 9 RDO Frame - $2.149,00
One 9 RDO XX1 - $5.899,00
One 9 RDO X01 - $4.699,00
One 9 RDO Single Speed - $3.499,00
Using steel for frame construction seems to have been out of fashion for a long time. Nowadays it has to be carbon or at least aluminum. However, Niner Bikes also takes a slightly different approach here. The sir 9 is offered exclusively in the Reynolds 853 steel version, with which the Americans close a clear gap in the market. Similar to One 9 RDO A 142 x 12mm axle is also used on the steel hardtail for maximum rigidity on the rear wheel. That too Biocentric bottom bracket- The bottom bracket is used on the bike to tension the chain.
That too sir 9 will be available in three versions. There will be a single speed as well as an X01 version. A bike with Shimano's SLX group is also available for those on a tighter budget. Here, too, only US dollar prices are currently available.
SIR9 Frame - $999,00
SIR9 X01 - $3.999,00
SIR9 Single Speed - $2.899,00
SIR9 SLX/Deore - $2.699,00
