Review: Niner RLT 9 Gravel Road Bike

Nice, but no guide for a dropper post (It's asking for a Thomson, even if not really needed) and a non-maxle 135mm rear hub, 142mm Maxle would be a nice option.

True CX bikes are ill-suited to recreational riding so these new bikes that blend parts road bike, parts mountain bike, parts cruiser bike, parts hybrid bike and parts CX bike are becoming the all-round bike of the future.

As seen in the Fairdale Weekender, they have nearly the same geometry as the famous Bridgestone X0-1. Niner Bikes in its new RLT 9 and every other bike manufacturer is making an old-school all-round bike. They look like CX bikes but in reality they are a completely different animal, which is makes them so versatile.

I swear people are just dancing around the genius of a Raleigh 3-speed. IMO Mike Flanigan (ANT bikes) has been re-inventing the British 3-speed with the most flair/dedication for a long-ass time and gets not nearly enough credit. And if you want a bike inspired by the XO-1, might as well get one from the guy what invented it:
Lugged Steel Bicycles, Wool Clothing, Leather Saddles & Canvas Bike Bags from Rivendell Bicycle Works

Handsome Devil builds an XO-1 copy.

The Raleigh 3 speed is a utility bike; the rest were club bikes.
