    Have any experience with Niner frames?

    I am considering picking up a Niner frame in the near future but wanted to see if anyone here has any experience with them first. If / when I get one it will be the EMD (eat my dust) frame. I will be putting a Reba fork on it.

    Any opinions appreciated.

    Yeah, good to be back around. I decided today after doing an easy 15 mile mountain bike ride that my knees aren't going to allow me to race mountain bikes any more. So, I figured I might as well get a bike that is a little more comfortable to ride a few times a year and sell my race bike.

    Okay, one last chance. Anyone know anything about these frames? My Nitrous is no longer so I am probably going to be placing an order later today.

    My friend has a RIP Niner frame and loves it. He just raced Leadville and some other race out there on it. He's had no complaints.

    I would love to have that RIP frame, just not sure how long it will be until they get them in stock. 4.5" of travel and a 29'er would be awesome!

    I'd probably opt for the mcd 9, just because I like steel, especially when racing considerations are not in play.

    A friend rides a SIR 9 setup rigid and single and likes it. and from what I have seen and read, Niner makes good solid frames.

    Sorry, haven't ridden them. Seen a few here and there and they look really nice, I just don't have first hand experience with the ride. Seem to be a quality bike though, nice welds, good paint.

    Let us know what you get.

    They very well may be. I'm also considering going with a 5" travel 26'er. I haven't decided which way I am going to go yet.

    You haven't been hanging out enough to recognize the "fad" reference. We have a thread here discussing 29ers. I don't have an opinion either way.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Most everything you wear, and everything you do, even recreational sports, including mountain biking, started out as a fad, so....yeah.

    You wanna get really squirrelly...Carver has a new 96'er dually. I love the wierdness of it all.

    I'm not a traditional kinda guy when it comes to my bikes. Heck...I ride a 32lb 5"er in Kansas of all places where a light weight 29er's momentum should do very well due to the rocky/rooty flatty trails.

    I'm a huge fan of the Surly Pugsley, Burro Bikes, and Carver 96ers.


    I don't know whether it's beautiful or ugly, but I want one.

    Quite honestly, I'm really interested in trying one of these. There's a Trek demo day comming up pretty soon near me. I think I'll go and try a 69er and a 29er. I'm really interested in feeling first hand what the differences, if any, are.
