Niner RLT 9 1 Star Tiagra Bike

Niner RLT 9 1 Star Tiagra Bike

All-Road Adventure Seeker

Here's the dilemma; you ride the road but rubberneck at every off-road path as you pedal by. You enjoy riding the dirt, but don't necessarily dig the hassle of packing up and driving to the trailhead. We feel your pain... The Niner RLT 9 just might be your solution.

Niner made history when they released the RLT 9, their first bike built for drop bars and "road" style riding. The RLT 9 was intentionally built for the curious and spontaneous. Think of it as the "road bike" for the mountain biker at heart. It's a road bike built to do basically anything you can think of - and have as much fun as possible while doing it.

One of the biggest benefits of the RLT 9 is that it offers a lot of options to customize tire size for whatever you happen to be riding on. If you mainly stick to pavement and fire roads you can use 700c wheels to run road or cross tires, or if you want something a little wider (up to 1.75”) you can slap on a pair of 29” MTB wheels thanks to the 135mm rear hub spacing. The slightly longer chainstays, slightly lower bottom bracket, and a slacker head tube angle make this a real gravel grinder that’s ready to be whatever kind of bike you need it to be.

To make this a bike you can truly ride on and off road all day, the RLT 9 features a hydroformed tube set similar to that of Niner's Air 9, engineered to meet Niner’s ride quality standards which is also why it comes with a gravel-tuned, custom painted Niner Carbon fork to gobble up all those road and “not-road” vibrations. The frame is really designed for rough usage in mind; offroad it's stiff where it counts without being a jarring or harsh ride, and on-road, it's a smooth and snappy ride. The RLT 9 features internal wire routing for a future Di2 setup, and uses a PF30 bottom bracket shell allowing you to run it geared or single speed via Niner’s new BioCentric 30.

Niner didn't skimp when they put this bike together. It's built with Shimano's Tiagra 10-speed system, which borrows a lot of design cues and features from their more expensive racing-level groups. Tiagra balances excellent functionality with comfort and durability. Shifting and braking are effortless, especially when paired with the rock solid Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes. Low gearing out back means you won't struggle to find an easy gear when you're climbing steep fire roads. Tying it all together is a high-quality Niner-branded cockpit and wheelset wrapped in grippy WTB All-Terrain tires.

Race a proper 'cross race on Saturday, explore gravel roads on Sunday, and commute on Monday. The RLT 9 is exactly what you’d think of when hearing Niner made a drop bar bike: beautiful, versatile and ready to rip!

Features

  • Hydroformed Aluminum Alloy Frame is light, efficient and beautiful
  • Custom gravel-tuned Niner carbon fork shares design DNA and safety testing standards with Niner’s legendary carbon MTB forks.
  • Upright Endurance Geometry is designed for comfort and controllability, making quick work of rough roads.
  • PF BB30 can easily go singlespeed or geared, and accomodates most cranksets on the market.
  • Internal shifter routing ports are ready for Di2 and seat post battery routing.
  • Front and Rear Rack and Fender Mounts add tons of functionality and all-season readiness

Decent for the price
The welds on the bike are ugly. They look like blobs around the bb. The brakes are subpar for a bike in this price range, even at the discount price. Tiagra setup rubs the front derailleur at both ends of the rear cassette. No amount of adjustment will solve that issue. Probably due to the 11-34 but idk for sure. An 11-32 would have worked better. It climbs well enough that I rarely go up to the last 2 gears anyway. It does have some nice jagwire cables.The paint is pretty nice and durable. Reviews of the RLT 9 frame are correct. It is Very stiff. I wouldn't buy this bike again. I'd get a steel frame instead due to the stiffness. I bought the bike because of the price and tire clearance. I'm going to fit some 45c WTB Riddlers and see how it performs on single track. This is my first niner and it does seem like they cheaped out on some things to hit this price point. Overall its a decent bike, but I'm not thrilled with it. I'm not complaining just giving an honest review. 4 out of 5 just because of the new price.

Do the tires come tubeless ready?
Billy S on Apr 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These are wire bead tires, which means they are NOT tubeless ready. You will need to purchase tubeless ready wheels and tires if you wish to run tubeless on this bike.
Hi,

what's the crank arm size and handlebar width for your size 47cm frame?
chris on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 47cm comes with a 40cm bar and a 170mm crankset.
Does the rlt9 have rack capabilities?
jim l on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes! The RLT 9 has front and rear fender/rack mounts.
Hi, my height is 5 foot 10, what size frame should I be getting ?
joe k on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am the same height. I recommend a 53 or a 56 depending on how aggressive you like your bike fit to be. 53 will be racier, lower with more standover. 56 will be taller and longer with a higher bar position.
what is the crank length on the 62cm frame?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 175mm
