niner bsb cyclocross bike test colors

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…

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.

Inside Gita’s booth was the usual collection of hand painted Dario Pegoretti frames. Nothing much to say, just enjoy the pics!

I’m hoping the next BSB’s are more colorful paint options. Niners tend to have a good pop of color, so it was disappointing to see such a boring color choice for the first BSB.

On a side note. Does anyone know what bottom bracket setup is used on the SIR9 to get the Cannondale cranks to work with the EBB?
Thanks

That looks like a raceface BSA30 bottom bracker and I’d assume there is some special attention to the spacing that is needed.

Purple Ano !!!
I’m of the vintage when this Rocked!
I love that color coordination and custom colors are back.
Why not personalize and be proud of your machine.
