Product Description

The S.I.R. 9 is the most versatile bike in the Niner stable, fusing the ?steel is real? feel of a new Reynolds 853 DZB tubeset with the ability to run the frame as either a geared bike or single speed with Niner?s ultra-light eccentric bottom bracket. New BIO-CENTRIC II BOTTOM BRACKET SYSTEM! The Niner Bio-Centric II makes adjustments easy across a wide range of gears and eliminates the need for adjustable dropouts, giving the cleanest possible solution for singlespeed use. No bolt on hubs, no chain tensioners cluttering your ride, no brake adjustments with gear changes. While tubing upgrades are the focus of this new design, Niner has not forgotten the details. The new the S.I.R. 9 uses 142x12mm spacing with an included Maxle for added rear-end torsional stiffness, removable downtube cable guides, post mount brake bosses between the chain and seatstay for braking precision and, of course, the Niner headbadge and two great color options for that finishing touch. The S.I.R. 9 is truly a do-everything frame. Run it single speed at your local race, then convert it to a full gear set to do the Trans-Alp. Want a 1 x 10? No problem. Or, if you?re just not sure, the S.I.R. 9 will give you the option of trying it all. Features: -Sizes: S, M, L, XL -Available Colors: Hot Tamale and Arctic White -Custom-bent double-butted Reynolds 853 DZB downtube. -44mm Reynolds 631 head tube allows use of tapered or 1?1/8? forks. -Compatible with a rigid or 80 - 100mm travel suspension forks. -Niner Bio-Centric II Bottom bracket system and removable downtube cable stops for clean singlespeed or geared setup. -44mm head tube compatible with tapered steerer forks. -Rear Hub Spacing: 142mm x 12mm (Maxle axle included with frame) -Up to 2.4" rear tire clearance.

Strengths:    strong, a work of art, easy to change from gears to SS

Weaknesses:    kind of heavy (but its steel), EBB can be a pain sometimes, little pricey

Bottom Line:   
I currently have mine set up SS. After the first ride my EEB came loose, I followed all the recommended install instructions and haven't had a problem sense. I was riding a Jabberwocky prior, that bike was stable, but the SIR9 is easier to throw around on switchbacks and the steel feels more plush, and nimble, Plus I could never run gears on my Jabber for bike packing. I also Had a Niner AIR9 that bike was fast, but it bounced me around all over the place, I prefer the Steel. The Niners Geo seems to fit me the best.

Niner S.I.R. 9 - First SS, First Build

So my first real post on mtbr, taken me a while, need to stop being such a lurker. (My first 5 were so I could post this in the SS forum, rather than general). I want to build a SS 29er, I've got some idea of the kind of bike I want, and I have the money (or will as I buy components) to put it t ... Read More »

Niner S.I.R. 9 Opinions

Hey guys what do you think of the Bio-Centric BB system? I am pretty much at wit's end for the ideal steel bike for SS and geared platform. I go either a Niner or something else. A bike I can race with but have fun with a SS, it must be steel or ti. A bike frame to end it all.Read More »
