Niner Bikes Zen 9 Full Suspension Sneak Peak
I know that many of you are very excited about our new suspension bike which makes us even more excited to show it to you, so here it is. Prototype #2.
We know, we know. This is kind of a tease. We're just not quite ready to show you the whole thing yet.
As you can see, we're hard at work trying to perfect the frame for it's release later this year. We are pushing for a release date of June, but this is not set in stone. The bike rides great but needs a few tweaks here and there. Chris and I hammered the two protos on an epic six hour climb/descend fest and we will continue to beat the crap out of these two frames until we know every little nuance and work out every little detail from cable routing to angles to suspension movement so that it's as perfect as it can be come delivery time to you.
We'll post complete frame pics when we have pre-production prototypes that are a little more dialed.
Stay tuned for more...
GREAT! - And perfect timing
I had a S.I.R. 9 on order, but had come to realize that with my bad back that I no longer can ride a HT &/or single speed......so reluctantly I had to cancel my order. Bummed out as I really want to get on a 9er.
I have just started doing some "looking" at what 29" full suspension frames are available. I love what Niner has been doing and I can pretty much bet that your FS will be an excellent choice.
Can't wait to see a final version.
I thought my HT days were over.....
Until I installed a Thud-buster. Looks bad works great.
