After seeing their customers and friends turning the RLT gravel bike into a flat bar fun bike, Niner is finally offering their alloy RLT 9 in a stock build with their flat handlebar. It comes in their 1-Star build, which means a very affordable mix of SRAM Apex 1×11, Level brakes, and a Niner alloy cockpit.
The bike comes with their full carbon fork, but with QR dropouts, making road-side flats a bit quicker to change and keeping it simple for folks who really are just looking for a quick commuter. Fender mounts are standard.
The frame keeps the QR dropouts, too, and has rack and fender mounts capable of porting up to 55lbs of “work” gear. The PFBB30 shell will fit their Biocentric concentric BB if you want to set it up as a singlespeed.
It comes with Niner’s alloy CX wheelset wrapped in WTB 700×37 All Terrain tires. Retail is $1,650, available now.
