Must See: Niner’s custom Greenback Cutthrout Trout RIP 9 RDO – First off, I’m sorry this isn’t the Niner you can win, you’ll have to scroll down for that. Instead, this custom painted Trout 9 RDO is the bike of Niner’s Senior Graphic Designer Nate Adams, but it’s just too good to miss.
“Everyone at Niner is a bike nerd first and foremost. We call ourselves “Ninerds”, naturally. Between our mountain bikes and gravel bikes, we ride local dirt almost daily. But we all have passions and pursuits beyond bicycles. Our building includes trail runners, kayakers, car campers, fly fisherman, hockey players, and rock climbers. In general we’re committed to living and playing outdoors under the sun and with as many different toys as often as possible.”
So when the opportunity of an extra frameset in the office presented a chance to build something unique, designer Nate Adams took the bait and sought inspiration in trailside streams. “It’s only natural when you share a passion for riding and fishing, that you throw a few flies in the river after a ride and try to trick some trout into biting.”
The bike is a RIP 9 RDO designed by Nate and painted by Tony Baumann of Made Rad Custom Paintworks. It gets a new AXS groupset (rainbow cassette, of course) plus Enve wheels & Deity cockpit components. NinerBikes.com
