RACER LESLIE WILLIAMS TO RACE A NINER ONE 9
AT THE SEA OTTER CLASSIC


Los Angeles, CA Niner bikes announced today that expert Racer Leslie
Williams will be racing the Niner One 9 at the Sea Otter Classic in the Pro
Womens Single Speed event due to kick off in Monterey, CA on Sunday, April
17, 2005 at 1:35pm.

Leslie, a Costa Mesa, California based racer, has been climbing up the
podium of the California race series for the last couple of years. In 2004,
she was the first female single speed rider ever to finish the Warriors
Society Vision quest. In 2005, she returned to set a new single speed
record in the same event. Leslie is currently ranked #1 in the women's
expert class and for the 2005 season she will be concentrating on Single
Speed and Endurance racing (and Single Speed Endurance Racing). Niner bikes
is proud to have Leslie aboard the One 9, Niner's first frame, a
SingleSpeedSpecific 29" wheel mountain bike. Niner is dedicated to the 29"
wheel movement and is excited about the opportunity to have Leslie throw a
leg over the One 9 for the Sea Otter Classic. Another way Niner Bikes is
"keeping the secret alive".

If you're attending The Sea Otter Classic this year, watch for Leslie aboard
the Niner One 9, and cheer her on. For more information on Niner, visit our
web site at www.ninerbikes.com, or come see us at Sea Otter where Ultimate
Work Stands is graciously hosting us as a guest at their booth.

I thought he was being quite enthousiastic about a super lightweight production frame for the clyde he is, now we know why...
The orange Niner won't be at the Ultimate booth for all of Sea Otter, apparently :)

Nice way to give a 29"er a go for once, before going custom, hehe...

My enthusiasm is not simply vicarious.
I spun that little Niner up one of the local climbs...forcing my wife to ride the Vulture for a while... There was no noticable flex at the BB at all...very stiff....and very light....
I'm pretty impressed by that fact...that and the geometry is pretty spot on, it seems...at least for her...right of the bat, she "connected" with the frame and was carrying more speed through sections than she does on any other bike...

Are they gonna dress her up too?

This is great news Padre and 1x1 !
I really like the look of the Niner, it should make Leslie faster than ever...
Are they hooking her up with a Jersey ? I think this is the best way for a new company to make it's mark and test their new gear...
I can't make it to the Otter with my team this year, I have to work :(
But I am really happy to see 29er's and SS's stepping up and showing people how "unconventional" riders and bikes are here to revitalize the sport...
Good luck, have fun and don't forget to show RC your ride after you win your class ;)

Nope...no jersey..I think the bright orange frame will suffice for attention getting...
She'll be wearing her Warrior's Society jersey....
