AIR 9 27.5+ 2-Star Complete Mountain Bike by Niner
Who needs rear suspension when you have low pressure plus tires to smooth out the ride' Rolling on plush 2. 8-inch tires, the Niner AIR 9 27. 5+ 2-Star Complete Mountain Bike gives you boatloads of traction and bump compliance with the efficiency and simplicity that can only come from a hardtail. It's ideal if your riding typically consists of rocky terrain, root-latticed trails, or kitty litter over hardpack as its high-volume tires and 120-millimeter fork soaks up the hits and adds never before experienced grip. We feel that the Air 9 27. 5+ is a solid upgrade if your bike is a few seasons old and you're looking for a more progressive geometry trail hardtail that isn't typically found on other cross-country bikes. Niner starts this build with a hydroformed aluminum frame that creates a lightweight ride with excellent trail feel. Using a multi-staged hydroforming process, a straight tube is butted and mechanically formed in preparation of the hydroforming process. Up next is multi-stage hydroforming, which is a series of molds used in sequence to create complex shapes. Multiple steps might take Niner longer, but they're able to reduce weight and achieve higher strength. Hydroforming uses molds and fluid pressure to form metal tubes into shapes ideally suited for certain locations along the bike frame, meaning Niner can dial in the bike's riding characteristics exactly how they'd like. Besides using a hydroforming process to create a remarkably strong and relatively lightweight aluminum frame, the AIR 9 27. 5+ comes with more progressive trail geometry that's a sigh of relief if you're transitioning from an overly stiff and twitchy handling cross-country bike. Considering its head tube angle of 68 degrees, it'll handle the rough stuff with greater composure and descend confidently on steep chutes and high-speed sections. However, it's still highly efficient at pedaling back uphill and covering large swaths of terrain, seeing as it isn't as slack as many of the ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
