Here's the dilemma; you ride the road, but rubber neck 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. The Niner RLT 9 2-Star Apex 1 build just might be your solution.
As Niner's first bike designed for 700c wheels, the RLT 9 was intentionally built for the curious and spontaneous. 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" wheels thanks to the 142x12mm 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 RLT 9 features internal cable routing for a Di2 setup and uses a PF30 bottom bracket shell allowing you to run it geared or single speed via Niner's new BioCentric 30.
Race a proper cross on Saturday, spin the back roads on Sunday, and commute on Monday. The RLT 9 is exactly what you'd think of when hearing Niner made a 700c drop bar bike: beautiful, versatile and ready to spar!
