Niner teases new trail hardtail model, looking for a name

Niner Bikes posted on MTBr today that the company is readying a new model, and is asking the public for input on the name.

Saying it will "appeal to old-school MTBr readers in particular," the steel hardtail will featured a rear thru-axle, short chainstays, a slack 44mm headtube, internal routing for a dropper seatpost, and Niner’s BioCentric bottom bracket. 

The post says we can expect to see a finished model in June. The name will be three letters followed by a 9, to match the rest of the Niner lineup

Overall, the new model looks very similar to the new trend of agressive, all-mountain hardtails like Kona’s Honzo, Diamondback’s Mason, and others we featured in Dirt Rag Issue #168

I’m in favor of RAD9.

Stay tuned for more.
