With the summer solstice today, it’s time for those serious about cyclocross racing to start looking at season prep. Niner is ready with their carbon BSB 9 RDO cross bike. For the upcoming 2018/19 race season they have a special limited edition color that you’ll be able to spot in the pits, even if it is still caked in mud.
Limited-edition Niner BSB 9 RDO carbon cyclocross bike
Cyclocross season is right around the corner, and with it the return of racing amongst Blood, Sweat, and Beers. And as usual Niner has a new look for their popular carbon BSB 9 RDO race bike that saw key updates last summer.
The blaze yellow bike will stand out on the startline, and still shine through the mud after an hour of racing – whether you have a team of mechanics hosing your bikes down each lap.
The RDO carbon bike gets 12mm thru-axles front & rear, as well as flat mount disc brakes, a tapered 1.5″ headtube and a 27.2 post. The bike gets cyclocross-specific geometry and clearance for 40mm tires, but still gets a pair of bottle cage mounts inside all frame sizes to extend its versatility beyond the cross course.
You should move fast to your local Niner dealer if you want to get ahold of the yellow, orange & exposed carbon bikes. No word on exactly how many are available, but you can pick one up with a SRAM Rival 1 build with Stan’s Grail wheels & tubeless Schwalbe X-One tires for $3800.
Or there also framesets available separately for $2300 in the full six size run (47-62cm). And then you get to decide your perfect cross racing build.
Wait too long and there still should be the decidedly more staid carbon, silver & red bikes to get you racing.
