Niner One 9 RDO Frame

Niner One 9 RDO Frame 2014

From the moment of its inception, the Niner One 9 RDO was of a breed of its own; no other manufacturers were interested in making a purely single speed 29” mountain bike. Shortly after its release, many began to see the appeal of an easy and simple mountain bike. Many found these bikes just as capable as a short travel 26” mountain bike on the trail, in fact many preferred how light the bike was without a suspension fork and felt riding rigid on the trail provided a different riding experience. When a mountain bike is stripped of its gears and suspension, it’s truly calling the rider’s handling skills to task. Anything is possible; you’ve just got to choose the correct line and push harder!

The Niner One 9 RDO is the newest member of the hardtail RDO family, adding features and trimming weight at the same time. Like all new Niner frames, the One 9 RDO now features a tapered headtube for added strength and stability. To provide an equally stiff rear end, the 12x142mm rear axle offers the strongest rear end available today. Borrowing technology from the Air 9 RDO, the rear brake mounts are now tucked away inside the chainstay which evenly distributes the twisting forces while allowing for smaller caliper mounts and decreasing wall thickness (which ultimately saves more weight).

Along with being welcomed into the RDO family, the One 9 RDO is now geared (yet not completely). Although many would say this goes against what the One 9 stands for, it’s a feature many riders will appreciate. The One 9 RDO can now accept a rear derailleur for your favorite 1x drivetrain, made possible by use of the derailleur chip (included) and the proper CYA Insert (sold separately). This makes this already extremely lightweight frame (average weight of 1235g) stronger, lighter, and more versatile than ever before!

Great bike
I have ridden this bike for about a month now and love it! It is super light and snappy. Love the eccentric bottom bracket to run it single speed. I have not had any creaking issues I have heard from the Niner bottom bracket, but time will tell.

This frame is legend!
A no-nonsense race ready frame that was designed for single-speeders first. The frame is unmistakable - the lines, colorway, and graphics are like nothing else. If you want to slay single track and break your PR on climbs, look no further.

The One 9 RDO is the most memorable bike in Niner's history and a legend amongst single-speeders. It's not perfect, but neither was the Lamborghini Countach.

What is the difference between this frame and the Air 9, and what size would I run if I'm 6 feet tall with an inseam of 30 (I'm a 56-57 in a road bike)? Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Hi there, Niner sent us their flagship feather-weight Air 9 RDO (Race Day Optimized for those not in the know), stacked with some of their house components, XTR drivetrain, and RockShox’s RS-1 carbon inverted fork. The RDO definitely puts the purpose of this bike into perspective when it comes to “Race Day Optimized”. Check out what made me grin… and what made me cringe riding this race machine…
About your size it's between M or L, check size chart in niner website
What year is this frame, 2015 or 2016?
A shopper on Dec 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My Frame is the Niner One 9 , not the RDO. However, my frame is a 2014 and the same color.
Can this frame compatible to 3x11 Shimano xt?
A shopper on Dec 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would say no as I am running it SS with a 34t and there isn't a lot of room for play between the frame and chainring.
Can this frame take a quick release style rim? I have a set of Stans Arch Ex wheels.
singlerider on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, this frame has 142x12 rear spacing, which means it is thru axle in the rear. Your wheels may be convertible to this standard depending on what hubs you have. Check with the Hub manufacturer. If they are the Stans hubs, I believe they offer an adapter.
