At the heart of Niner is racing and while they’ve made a big push to expand their bikes from this lineage, they still know how to design one sick race machine. The newly updated BSB (blood, sweat and beer) 9 RDO is now available. These bikes are Di2 ready with seat post battery compatibility, feature a flat mount disc caliper design, thru axles, C5 Carbon warranty for 5 years and Niner’s no-nonsense race geometry. These are available in limited quantities, so holler at your Niner dealer for ordering. See more information at Niner!
The 70’s were the automotive paint design heyday, ATMO anyway. Earth tones and bright hues intersected along cars, vans and trucks via a network of chevrons and stripes. While many manufacturers embraced these trends, it was the niche hobby market who took it to the next level. A whole culture emerged with vans donning intricate designs, long before #VanLife, yet it was the off-road culture that has always piqued my interest, most notably the baja bugs and trucks. Jeremy from Stinner Frameworks has always had an affinity for the early 70’s Baja Bug paint designs, ultimately these became the inspiration for this two-wheeled off-road machine. (more…)

If you’re in SLC for NAHBS and want to ride your bike on Friday night with a lot of people in a somewhat competitive environment then go to this event!
Ok, maybe you can call it a ‘cross bike, because that’s truly what it is at its roots. Before we get ahead of ourselves here, let’s take a step back. There are stigmas attached with the words “commuter” “city” “townie” and even “cross” bike. There are certain checklists that apply to each of those permutations. The most notable being fender and rack provisions. Even with the latter, “cross” purists want drop bars and 32mm tires for a bike to be true to its UCI roots. This bike has no provisions for racks or fenders, is sold with a 40mm tire, flat bars and a bell. It’s not as much as it is. It is whatever you want it to be. (more…)
Niner’s tried and true RLT 9 Steel platform got some upgrades with its latest model. These upgrades include flat mount disc brakes, more bottle bosses, mounts on the fork as well as a bolt-on top tube bag attachment. These frames will fit a 1.75″ tire, as well as double and triple cranksets. The new RLT 9 Steel is available in 1-star up to 4-star builds from both Shimano and SRAM. Head to Niner to see more.
It looked like a real wet and wild time at the 2017 Cyclocross World Cup in Fiuggi this weekend.
… to go play in the desert with Jeff from All-City while he’s in town! Hope you’re enjoying this long weekend and we’ll be back on Tuesday.
I’d love to see more from this event in Budapest!
