New updated for 2016 with 12x142 rear axle. With the essence of cyclocross, the new BSB 9 RDO is now the Niner flagship drop-bar bike. The BSB 9 RDO is the sub-1000 gram race frame that will take you through every off camber corner, up every staircase, and into endless gauntlets of brew drinking, prime tossing, screaming, heckling fans lap after lap after lap. The shapes of our BSB 9 RDO frame are heavily influenced by our long history in carbon fiber race frame design in particular by our experience in building light, strong hardtails with velvet-smooth off road ride-quality. Informed by, but not slave to, the shaping of the Air 9 RDO you will find generously sized downtube and top tube shapes for torsional stiffness, with vertical compliance achieved via the flat sections on each tube. Chainstay and seatstay shaping also benefits from our hardtail expertise they are one hundred percent designed for weight savings and ride quality something not previously possible in cyclocross when reinforcing for cantilever brakes. Available in six sizes: 47, 50, 53, 56, 59 and 62 cm.
