I forgot to ask Chris and Steve at the Otter, but before that a decision as to whether they were going to allow that hadn't been made. All the other colors decals will be under clear coat.rollmonkey said:i bet you the black-background ones you could peel or remove the lettering
This is great to see, this fork looks like the real deal for carbon users and glad to see a company listen to what some riders are looking for. We all cant pull of the Shiggy styleNiner Bikes said:Hey guys,
Chris and I do listen, and in that vein, we've decided to decrease the billboard artwork on the side of the full NUDE carbon fork.
Niner Bikes said:Hey guys,
Thanks for the nice words on the carbon fork. We got a lot of attention on these at The Otter, and it's nice to see so many people amp'd up to get them.
Chris and I do listen, and in that vein, we've decided to decrease the billboard artwork on the side of the full NUDE carbon fork. Instead of having two giant silver NINER decals running the length of the fork, the NINER decals will be in an off black, barely visable over the raw carbon. The red 9 NINER decals will remain on the upper part of the fork. The decals will still be under clearcoat.
We hope this helps some of you who may not want to be rolling the full Niner logos.
Pull the front tire out of almost any recreational riders road bike and take a look under the crown. I've seen some major scratches on those, yet no worries.LyNx said:as someone else said, good for Niner listening to their customers :thumbsup:
On another note......was just looking at BB thread on his nasty, mucky race this last weekend and wondered - What happens when you are running a real tyre and not a Stans Crow in that carbon fork and mud starts to build up and clog up the arch and scratches the CF? Is the fork screwed because some rocks got caught in the mud and scratched the CF? Got to ask as I've had this happen several times when I had no clue there'd be mud and I surely wasn't about to just give up and walk home :skep: Are these fair weather only forks?
