You do have to admire Niner and its single-minded approach to the big wheeled bicycle. As it says on its website, their 29ers aren’t the token bikes in the range, they are the range. It’s this fanaticism, coupled with some very nice looking design that has won it many fans in the US and, slowly, in Europe too.
Having made a big noise before Eurobike with the launch of its revamped Air9 and E.M.D.9 frames you’d think that it had shown all, but it had kept back the launch of its new 15mm (Maxle Lite) carbon fork for Eurobike.
Niner also announced a range of components: handlebars (which it does already) are to be joined by stems and seatposts, in three different spec levels.
