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.

Very Impressed
This bike is a steal. I can really only speak about the frame, because that's the reason I bought the bike. The rest I changed out when it arrived. Clearance was a big issue for me, and I fit 45mm WTB Riddler tires on with plenty of room to spare. There was one time in 100 miles of sticky mud where the tires picked up enough mud to scrape the chainstays, but that would've happened on a wider frame, too. Nice to see the 62cm in the lineup. This is not just a fantastic gravel bike, but a great all aound bike. Can easily change tires and be right at home on the road (I've done that too). Carbon fork does a great job absorbing chatter, and the whole thing rides really steady and sure footed, even with the high bottom bracket. Very happy with this purchase.

When does a road bike feel like an XC bike?
Loads of fun. This year has been wet & muddy, and this bike seems made for it. I feel really planted on this guy, with a "between the wheels" feeling I've only had before on custom bikes. The tapered fork tracks nice. I also like the understated colorway, and it bears mentioning the photos on the internet don't seem to do this model RLT justice. Lots of cool little touches; the Niner bolts and geegaws are the cherry on top. Nice build by Jenson too.

Can't go wrong for $1000
I bought this bike solely for a budget long distance climbing bike. My race bike would cost too much to switch all the gearing out and my tour bike is too heavy.

I swapped out the cranks for the Tiagra triple and I put on a set of bb7 brakes. The bike is perfect for any kinda casual level riding.

I have just over 500 miles on the bike so far and I couldn't be happier, but only because it is on sale for $1000.

Fantastic Bike!
An absolutely beautiful bike...especially if you're a Niner fan already. This bike is worth so much more than even MSRP. I was nervous about the Tiagra group but it works just as well as my Durace. The only con is the brakes. I ordered dual pull Hydros. This bike ran large for me.

Great commuter
Incredible price that blew every other retailer out of the water. I could have used a little more detail in the assembly video, but eventually got it figured out and have been commuting on it ever since.

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.
Hello I'm 5'8" which size it's better for me? Thanks
A shopper on May 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would say probably a 53. I am 5'6 and am on the 50 as it was on the line for but recommended I go down vs up.
If the tires aren't Tubeless ready, Are the wheels Tubeless ready?
sergio on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, neither the wheels nor the tires are a tubeless-ready spec.
I'm 5'7" and would like to use to for cross. Would a 50cm be too small? Thanks!
Dave S on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm 5'9" and the the 53 cm fits me. The Niner website has all the dimensions. Compare it to your current bikes.
What is the crank length for the 59cm? Does this bike tend to fit larger or smaller than other brands like Specialized?
Sasdfg on May 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 59cm comes with 175mm cranks. This bike fits a tiny bit larger than its stated size in my experience. I normally ride 54 or 55cm road bikes but the 53cm was my fit. Always refer to the geometry chart for a true comparison.
What is the crank arm length for the 56cm?
Juswalk on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 172.5mm
I am 5' 4" would a 50cm fit?
Eric H on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You should probably be fine, but you'll want to double check your standover figures, as the 50cm has a 30.1" standover height. If your inseam isn't long enough to comfortably stand over the frame, it'll be a bit too big for you.
What is the stem length on the 56cm frame?
Sean M on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: On the 56cm, it is a 100mm length stem.
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
