    Specialized Chisel vs. Niner Air 9 (for climbing)

    I'm considering a new frame, either a Specialized Chisel or a Niner Air 9. I am most interested in climbing performance and a geometry that favors efficient ascents and keeps its traction on steep hills when standing and cranking. I have a Fox Performance 34 SC 120mm fork. Please help me decide between these two frames. Thanks!

    I got a Chisel Comp last Feb. 2nd HT, 1st being a 25 yr. old Fuji steel. Rode it all winter and into April til road season kicked in.

    If all the things I like about the Chisel the one surprise is the geometry sees it climbing like no other bike I've used.
