Niner has produced 9 limited edition Air 9 Carbon framesets to benefit IMBA. How can you get one of these one-of-a-kind framesets, you ask? Sea Otter patrons take note: One of the framesets (made up into a complete bike, see after the break for component breakdown) will be given away at Sea Otter, while the others will be auctioned off starting April 18th, with proceeds going to IMBA.

For more info, read the press release after the break.

  1. This is a great idea, I am glad to see the folks at Niner helping out the IMBA. But unfortuantely their has been so many “me-to” 29er bikes released on bike rumor in the past month that I am start to get “niner-nausea”. With no disrespect to the fine folks at Niner bicycle company, as they still make the make some of the best bikes out there.
