    Name the New Niner Contest, Phase 2! Time to Vote...and another sneak peek image!

    Alrighty. Recruit your friends, call your mom. We have hundreds of possible names for the new Niner. We've eliminated the obvious trademark issues and things that didn't fit the rules. Now is the time to sort the wheat from the chaff. If you are excited about this bike and want it to have a name you love, get in there and vote. You have til Monday March 18, 6pm MST. We will post updates and biased opinions as to the quality of certain frontrunners all weekend on our facebook page. I'll offer some extra prizes, too. :-)

    Once we get the Final Five, we will check to see if any of them are Cylons. We will also check for trademark issues etc, again and remove any that we can't legally use - moving the next most popular name into the voting. We will then vote for the winner at Niner, and will post our reasons why - with video!

    I think I will wait to vote until you narrow the list a wee bit, I think that is a few too many for even a preliminary list

    Yeah, I can't imagine many are going to read through all of these entries. I wish there would be a couple stages of voting instead of one stage to 5 entries...

    Damn I wished I changed my submission from MCC9 to MC^29.

    (The 2 would be a squared symbol to signify "CC" and the entire name would be Marin County California 9 in homage of "The Birthplace of Mountain Biking"). There's a lot of graphic play that could happen on the design to make this happen. And MC29 looks a lot better than MCC9.

    FAIL!

    I've found three or four that I like as well as mine. I don't know how the voting will affect the final decision, but maybe the Niner crew will pick the one they like the best out of the top vote winners.

    But everyone should vote for mine

    I would just like to point out that a bridge in Europe won a voting contest to be named the Chuck Norris bridge, but the government shot down the idea.

    So now's your chance to vote for CNC 9, or Chuck Norris Cycle. Because this bike will be so Chuck Norris-like. When you pedal it the wheels don't spin, it spins the Earth...

    WIN9 was a good one in there but not for this bike.
    I wonder if Niner would have liked BUY9?

    I'm pretty sure AMP9 is going to win, but I think that was already the name of the prototype. Kudos for someone jumping on that first.

    Thanks, Niner, for including your fanbois!

    I voted for your AMP 9 entry too. Though there are a number of quite good and classy options on there - I ended up ticking about 10 boxes.

    Surprisingly: someone seems to have voted for mine (aside from that one of mine I voted for myself!). Thank you, other voter!

    Well, if someone very determined wants to game this stuff, it's pretty hard to stop them. But I suspect the Niner folk will apply their best judgement to the apparent results: just relax and go with it. No-one owns that bike just yet.

    Me? I like AMP9, and don't have any names on the list. Just saying it was smart to use it because Niner obviously likes it. Good luck.

    Nonono... Not you! You like my entry so I'm loving you at the moment (in a thankx bro kind of way offcourse ;-) )
    This morning when everyone had about 5% of the votes, keifla123 had his three entries up to 14% a piece... Seemed odd.

    I wonder if there would be a trademark issue with AMP Research who was a 90's era innovator of FS bikes?

    Been wondering about that one aswell, but my guess is: Since they are no longer around they can't hold a trademark?

    For now my mindset is: Let niner wonder about that one ;-) and I'm going out for a bike ride!

    AMP 9 is my personal favorite. Sounds good by itself and the acronym makes sense.
    But I think Banshee bikes might have an issue with it, Amp | Banshee Bikes: DH Race, Freeride, All Mountain, Trail, Slopestyle, DJ/Street/4x, Aggressive Trail, Cross Country

    Please, vote in NUD name [Control+F and type NUD to find]

    See the name concept here: #470

    I not saw the FLO name as an option on the list. I also liked so much the concept of this name.

    Thanks!

    Isn't there an energy drink called amp? I don't know about that one . sounds too close for a trademark. Plus, is this bike an all mountain bike ? Or cross country ? All mountain could be a little vague in the bike market today.

    Good news, you can stop worrying about the trademark issues... Looks like I'm off the win by a long way! Let's just hope I can stay in the top five?!
    Can anyone tell abbeytrails he can turn of his voting script? It's obvious he's going to win...

    All mountain vague? It's perfectly the type of riding this bike was designed for... A bit more heavy duty than XC-bikes for us Funloving types and a bit more subdued then full on enduro...

    I agree, Niner should pick their top 10 favorites and then let mtbr members and only mtbr members vote for the winner in a poll here on the forums.

    No worries guys - we left our final say and some legal review to sort it all out. We pulled a few names that had obvious issues out of the voting, but there are still quite a few that just won't make it past the suits. In the end, it's a pretty fun game and I am stoked so many people are voting.

    Cheers,
