My new ride: 2016 Niner RLT Rival 3-Star build (Aluminum frame)

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

It was too good a deal to pass. I don’t have anything to compare it with or against, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

How much does it weigh?

How much did it cost?

Is the saddle pointed down a little?

Just weighed it: 20lbs, with heavy platform pedals

Pricing, out the door, was $1,465.00 (Steal of a price to me)

The saddle does indeed look to be slightly pointed downward. I haven’t adjusted it, nor have I felt the need to adjust it. I didn’t even realize it was pointing down until you guys pointed it out. Good catch.

It is nice. 20 lb is great.

You are going to have the time of your life on that thing. Please post photos in the gravel ride pics thread.

And welcome to the Niner club.

It's too bad Niner didn't spec tubeless ready wheels on that bike. Seems like a serious oversight for a bike of that level.

Mine came with the stock aluminum rimset, and I had them converted to tubeless.
I believe the ‘Stans Grail’ rimset are tubeless, which are another option when getting the 3-star build.
