Niner BSB 9 RDO is bright & ready for cyclocross in limited edition Blood, Sweat & Beer

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.

Tech details remain the same on the BSB 9 RDO, which comes built up 1x but can also sport a front derailleur or a high direct mount chain guide.

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.

I think the Huffy logo would look a little better with that paint scheme.

OMG that is such an edgy comment. You must make the other kids at the shop laugh all the time.

When I think Huffy I think the 7-Eleven team. I must be old.

Looks like they’re already using the same graphics team. I see the likeness.

Wait a sec, are they doing the silver and red for the BSB? That’s an RLT RDO from last year, but that was the best colourway they ever did for that bike. Or any bike!

Agreed. I have the silver/red RLT and pictures don’t do it justice! Super classy but not a hey look at me color scheme.

Cyclocross race bikes don’t need two water bottle mounts. Get serious Niner.

Might not for a race, but during longer non race days, that extra bottle sure is nice to have. I wear a camelbak 3L and cage 2 21oz bottles, and still take 2 16oz extras in my camelbak pouch. In AZ ya don’t chance it!!! Take all you can, especially if you’re riding remotely!

No reason to not have two bottle mounts as my cross bikes do double duty as dirt road bikes that get ridden on gravel….see what I did there? Shit, my Ridley X Nights both had dual bottle cage mounts
