RLT 9 3-Star Rival 650b Gravel Bike by Niner
Gravel and adventure cycling has become almost the new norm around the office here at Competitive. Instead of sticking to a single surface, most of us covet the ability to soar from sleek tarmac to ribbons of singletrack, and up gravel roads that lead to stunning vistas.

The decision to spec a 27. 2mm seatpost helps reduce vibration on rough roads causing fatigue that builds up over the hours. This frame blends Niner's mountain geometry with the barrier hopping 'cross-specific BSB frameset. Compared to the BSB, the RLT 9 is built with longer chainstays, a lower bottom bracket, and a slacker head tube angle. What you will notice is a lower center of gravity that still has ...

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.
