- What price to pay for a Niner MCR frame?
Well, they were a bit cheaper than a SIR.9 when new.
And they stopped making them when the new SIR.9 came out a year or so back.
I’d say if it’s in good condition I’d look to pay no more than £250.
I bet your looking at >£50 shipping. Not sure on taxes as it’s used, but I’ve never had any used bits held up at customs.
They really are a lovely hardtail. You can really feel the spring in the steel. Really love my SIR.9. Is it the forks too ? (Niners steel fork is identical to the Swift steel fork). If I were to add another mtb to keep my SIR.9 company it would be an MCR.Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Likewise, if it’s a medium I might be interested Tang… 🙂
I’m sure I spotted a SIR.9 starting the Tour Divide this year, in Kermit green like mine.
I was sceptical as they come up light for a steel frame (& I’m no lightweight), but the larger sizes have different tube butting etc anyway. I bought mine as a long term bike. The way I see it, if it breaks I can get it repaired easily being good old steel.
I’d ask to see a close up of the top tube – head tube gusset. The paint cracks there due to movement. Niner have warranty replaced a few in the States, but I was refused. I’ve not heard of any actually cracking, but there are a few fusspots on MTBR. I’m not too concerned. Charliethebikemonger reported that his 5yr old test bike has had the same issue for years.Posted 4 years ago
