Loud colors and the ability to ride everything seem to go hand in hand these days, so Niner’s new ROS build should surely be a hit. Starting with their Ride Over Stuff 9 (use your imagination on that last one) steel frame, Niner has a new high end X1 build for the bike which will be offered in Forge Grey, Rally Blue (limited) , and now, Purple! Not just purple, but purple with Niner green accents and, if you get the 3 star build, a color matched Rockshox Pike as well.

Thanks to the new color scheme, the ROS 9 could be mistaken for the Riddler On Steroids (get it? ROS?), and it will definitely attract some attention. Built with short chainstays, a slack head angle designed for 120-140mm forks, and a 142×12 rear axle the ROS 9 is designed to be the Niner hard tail for the North Shore.
The frame continues to offer internal dropper post routing, removable front derailleur mount, Niner’s Biocentric 2 EBB, and mounting tabs under the BB for a custom MRP XCG bash guard. Three star builds will retail for $3,999 and will start arriving on July 10 depending on the color and build.
In addition to the ROS 9 3 star build, Niner will also be offering a more budget friendly 2 star singlespeed build at $2899, starting June 2oth. ROS 9 frames will also be offered in all three colors for $899.
