    Niners being (gasp) ridden

    OK
    We have enough pics of Niner's lent against garage doors, kitchen benches, sofa's, stair cases, brick walls, fences and just about any other inanimate object that there is.
    It is time for a thread devoted to Niner's of all models, actually being ridden.
    It is also a good chance to see how ordinary our Niner brother's and sister's heads are.

    I will start with my ordinary head taken at a recent 100km race.

    At the recent European 29er meet early this month. Niners were in the majority - there were two.


    Soon to sport a new Niner fork!

    Nice shots BSide...the top one looks like Eagle, second could be anywhere in the Rocky Mtn high country.

    Am I close?

    Wink Don't have many

    Didn't you start another one of these last year, or was it the Cannuks? Anyways, don't have many of me as I normally ride solo or am just enjoying riding to much to stop and take pics.

    1st one's taken on the 401 Trail Crested Butte, 2nd on the Monarch Crest trail and 3rd on Gini.

    I have no idea who this dude is, but this pic was taken at a race close to my house (Leesburg Baker's Dozen)
    Edit: race number plus google, this is Matt McClusky. He placed 23rd, i.e., he smoked 38 people with two legs.

    Cool thread and all but seriously, I don't get the guys rocking one brand of bike and then wearing a jersey for another that has absolutely huge graphics - looks silly to me Personally unless someone's paying me to wear it I tend to want jerseys that don't have on sponsors stuff, especially hug ass like the SpecialED one.

    I tend to just check out bikes and not peoples attire. Thats just me though.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    OUCH!

    Some serious cat claws you got there. Check it out, Niner jerseys just came available, ordered two wednesday, better to have a jersey than go shirtless! But that's ok too.

    Ride naked if it floats your boat, just don't wanna see your -airy arse anywhere near me!

    I think the Niner jerseys are a bit ordinary looking.
    I prefer the Salsa "team" kit.

    Will stick to Twin Six though.

    a team jersey, at least wear "the" team jersey. I wore mine in this race a couple of weeks ago.

    Hey LyNx; all my jerseys have disbanded pro cycling team names on them since you can buy them for next to nothing when the team disbands. ONCE, Phonac, Cofidis, etc.

    that's what I did. He hooked me up when he was sending me my replacement front triangle that UPS destroyed. I also scored a couple of pairs of socks too. The cool thing about Niner is if you call them, one of the guys that actually handle your problem will answer the phone. Nice to talk to another mountain biker rather than a customer service rep that just "works there".

    Wait a minute, how are you going to be an effective poser now? What are you, some guy who just rides his bike and doesn't give a F about which Fortune 500 companies you endorse?

    Sounds like commie talk.

    Wichita Mountains, Oklahoma. We were looking for the 12 Miles of Hell, but didn't exactly come prepared. So we just went on a hiking trail and did more hiking than riding, still had some fun though.

    I've been to that area actually, but it was ~25 yrs ago. I recall Lake Louise and Columbia Ice Fields fairly well.

    I was still in my BMX days then.

    Sorry to take this OT, but got to ask.........you're rolling a Maxiss jersey, but that front tyre doesn't look like any Maxiss 29er tyre I know of - what's the tyre? Looks like a skinny 1.95 type race tyre Is that a proto your rolling on? Can easily see an Ignitor on the bike next to you.

    sorry OT again

    Hum Makes me sad, thought they had something in the works Guess they just look a bit small in the big Fox arch compared to a Reba like I run and the centre tread looks a little more solid, but that could just be wear and mud packed up. What PSI you run them at?

    Nice to see a few Niners in action. Yet to see any heads worth a second look though! Don't any females ride Niners?
    Yes I will get some action shots up myself one day...
