When brands are launching a new model or updating a current one for the next model year, they often deliberate color choices quite a bit. Sometimes they’ll go so far as getting fully painted frame samples. That’s what you’re seeing here with this gorgeous green-on-blue colorway that unfortunately didn’t make the cut for the BSB’s debut. Fingers crossed something like this comes along someday.
This bike belongs to a Niner employee and team racer and took a little finagling to get it in front of the camera…
C’mon Brad, let us see the bike!
The matte and gloss contrast is something Niner’s already using to great effect, just not in these colors.
This S.I.R.9 was decked out with custom anodized parts and hubs from Project321. The brand showed off the rainbow of colors they offer at Sea Otter this year, alongside the new rear hubs and Lefty hub, also shown here.
The upcharge for custom anodization runs up to about $150 for cranks, depending on color selection.
Purple ano FTW.
