Scott's 2016 Niner RIP 9 Scott's 2016 Niner Air 9 RDO Dana's 2015 Niner Jet 9 Dana's eBay Special
Description Since the market appeared to be abandoning the 26er platform, it seemed like I should move to a bigger wheel while there was still value in my Santa Cruz. So when I saw this Niner frame on sale, I jumped on it in July 2016. In May 2017 I decided to upgrade my hardtail to get at tapered steerer so I can upgrade the fork. I also moved to a thru-axle so the wheels would be interchangeable across both my mountain bikes. I was not looking to get another Niner, but I know they fit me and I found a deal for over half off so I could not pass it up. In June 2016 I found this frame a price I could not pass up. It provided much more advanced suspension from the Rocky Mountain, and the 29er wheels should roll better. Dana has become enamoured with the comfort provided by carbon frames. Since these chinese carbon frames on eBay were getting good reviews, and they were cheap, we decided to build her a new mountain bike in 2010 based on one. The purchase process was simple, and the frame arrived quickly and in perfect shape. She loves how it looks and rides.
