Show Details
The Niner AIR 9 RDO carbon frame has slimmed down to racing weight and is now lean, mean, and Niner green. RDO stands for Race Day Optimized, meaning that this frame was made as light as possible The new rig is a half-pound lighter than its predecessor, thanks to an optimized carbon layup process and reduced diameters of the down and top tube. Additionally, Niner's trademark CYA bottom bracket was swapped out for a smaller, all-carbon Press Fit 30 BB; even the headset races in the headtube are molded carbon. The rear brake mount is tucked inside the curving stays to distribute twisting forces evenly, permitting smaller caliper mounts and decreased wall thicknesses. This frame was made to come alive, with quick acceleration and telepathic handling. 5 year warranty. Headset is included.

If you're looking for beefy stealth, consider the XX front derailleur which shifts across the entire gearing range with near nil chain rub and a granny gear that can be cross-chained within one or two cogs without cage rub. Steel cage with parallelogram arms forged in aluminum. Thin, flexible clamp is lightweight and conforms easily to non-round tubes. The return-spring tension is boosted to force crisp direct-mount frame interfaces and in high and low-pull cable configurations. Shorter than a triple-specific front derailleur and narrower than front derailleurs made for nine-speeds in back, the XX High Clamp is great news for those who fear clearance between their rear suspension and their front derailleur. Lightning fast two-chainring derailleur is designed from scratch specifically for 2x10.
