    Niner Carbon forks on non-Niner frames - pics please

    I'm looking at building up a rigid 1x9 bike with some spare parts laying around - but need a frame & fork. If one is going with a rigid carbon fork, may as well do the lightest one out there with the Niner. However, it is just so NINER. How does it look on your non-Niner frame??

    The picture doesn't do it justice. It has all nugget gold xo stuff along with the noir bars and post with gold. That fork is no longer on there....I recently bought a new Team Reba fork and put on American Classic wheels

    I wasn't crackin on your bike, just think the nude carbon would match the rear stays. Nice bike nonetheless.

    Anyone who can pull that gold fork off deserves some serious cred.

    I tried one on my Pro29 when they first came out and it REALLY didn't work well with my bikes geometry. I am running a Salsa cromoto grande now and love it. It must be the offset of the fork that made me dislike the Niner.

    Another Singular, a Pegasus. Niner forks; Who cares what they look like, they are super light and strong and so well made.

    Hi Guys,

    Niner Bikes will be selling RAW carbon forks to builders with the custom builder RAW carbon fork program. What does this mean? You can have your builder call up Niner to order this fork and they can buy a raw, unfinished, non-clear coated fork. Your builder can paint this fork to match your frame if they have in-house paint capabilities. So you want a black steel frame with flames? You can now have a 560 gram carbon fork to match. Want just a solid color to match your current frame? Did you get a pink frame with pink polka dots last year and want a rigid carbon fork to match? Then your builder can order this and paint you one.

    The carbon forks are all 470mm with a 45mm offset, weight limit of 240 pounds.

    Chris was at NAHBS telling custom builders of this program but didn't get to talk with everyone a few weeks ago. So the best thing to do would be for them to call us 877-646-3792 and we can give more info. Since this is not finished with a clear coat, these MUST go to a custom builder or a Niner approved paint house and are not sold direct.

    Thanks,

    Brett

    Wish I knew that before I bought mine. But no big deal. Here's what I'm building now. Also have an '08 Sir-9. Great bike, but I've always wanted an IF.

    how does that bike handle with that fork. from what i remember the niner fork is the closest to the g2 offset of production carbon forks. also do you have a side shot...my bike is an abomination (69'er) but i like it.
