SIR 9 29 5-Star X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Niner
One of the most versatile hardtails on the market, the Niner SIR 9 29 5-Star XO1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike features smooth and supple Reynolds 853 steel construction paired with modernized trail geometry, 29-inch wheels for momentum-carrying speed, and 18 mounting points for bikepacking adventures.

Paired with the FOX 34 Float Factory fork with 120-millimeters of travel, the SIR 9 moves from a rather XC-focused head tube angle of 70-degrees (for the previous model) to a trail-worthy 68-degrees. This gives you added confidence to attack fast descents and technical sections previously on the edge of the old bike's comfort zone. Although it's slacker than before, it still pedals and climbs with resounding efficiency, as Niner engineered it with a steeper 74-degree seat tube angle, which places you in an optimal pedaling position. Seeing that its name comes from the catchy phrase "Stee...

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.
