BIG.NINE CF3 FRAME

XC focused carbon frame (approx. 1.29 kg BIG.NINE - M). Aero profiled down tube, leaf spring profiled chain and seat stays for comfort. BB92 bottom bracket. Boost axle standard and tapered head tube deliver stiffness and steering precision. ‘Smart Entry’ cable routing prevents rattling. Includes integrated down tube and chainstay protectors for extra frame protection.

DROPPER POST READY

All models down to the BIG.NINE LITE frame level feature a 30.9 mm seatpost, the enhanced connection area increases the strength around the top tube/seat tube join and allows the option of fitting a dropper seat post. Models down to BIG.NINE LIMITED allow internal cable routing for the dropper post while the remaining models would require external routing.

LOVED BY THE PRESS

Our classic hardtails are not just a much-loved trail companion but the international cycling press also value our design and engineering work. De Telegraaf in the Netherlands made the BIG.NINE XT-EDITION their test winner and polish bike magazine bikeBoard rewarded the BIG.NINE 500 with their over-all test winning credentials as well as with the ‘lightest’ and ‘value for money’ accolades.

SMART ENTRY

Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails and roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

MODERN HARDTAIL GEOMETRY

Our carbon (CF) and aluminium (LITE) models feature a long 422 mm reach, steep 73,5° seat angle, slack 70° head angle and an 80 mm stem (frame size M), affording the next generation XC geometry. Aggressive agility meets stable calmness; perfect for today’s demanding courses.

FLEX-STAY

The seat and chainstay profile and carbon lay-up schedule are adapted to work like a flat leaf spring, absorbing surface bumps and reducing vibrations.

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

SMART ENTRY

Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails or roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

DI2 READY

Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

NANO MATRIX CARBON

To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

AWS

When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.

We all love to ride our bikes, and we know how exciting it is to get a new bike.
Our READY TO RIDE Service ensures you can ride your bike within a few minutes upon receiving it.

NO MECHANIC REQUIRED

Building a bike to ride smoothly and safely requires specialty tools and expertise. Trained and experienced bike mechanics assemble your bike with precision and care in a professional bike shop environment using correct bicycle specific tools and procedures.

We review your new bike to ensure there are no missing parts and that they all work together as desired - derailleurs shifting perfectly, brakes performing flawlessly, and that your wheels are trued to perfection. Our mechanics complete a thorough 30 point checklist to assure that your new bike is not only perfectly tuned, but that every nut and bolt is torqued to exact technical specifications. This is the same quality control process that we use for the thousands of bicycles that roll out of our bike shop to ensure they are high performing and are safe to ride.

Every bike is then carefully packed and ready to be shipped out using the best shipping companies in the country.

BOX TO RIDING IN 10 MINUTES

When you receive your new bike all you need to do is complete a simple 10 minute process and you are Ready to Ride. It actually takes longer to remove the foam padding that safely protects your bike than to do the final easy assembly steps.

After removing your bike from the box and removing the foam padding, you only have to tighten the pedals and handlebars, install the seat and plug in the front wheel and you'll be riding in 10 minutes.

Proven to work even with the most mechanically un-inclined person.

Mountain Bikes are bikes that are designed to be ridden off-road on trails, mud tracks, rocky/sandy sections and generally areas which are not smooth. Generally, mountain bikes are identified by knobby tires, flat handlebars, and suspensions which provide a smooth and stable ride even on highly irregular or broken terrain.. read more
