The All-City Electric Queen was expressly made for maximum fun. Sitting squarely in the “trail” category it goes up almost as well as it comes back down. Short wheelbase, modern trail geometry, and plus size tire clearance makes this a non-stop dirt party no matter what terrain you’re tackling that day. Its whippy 612 chromoly frame with internal dropper post routing, boost spacing, and those short chainstays make berm-carving and wheelies second nature. A RockShox Sektor fork delivers 120mm of travel so you can get after it and carry more speed through the fun stuff, while WTB ST wheels and 3-inch Ranger tires keep you on your line when you’re pushing the limits. Its SRAM NX 1x12 drivetrain delivers a significant gear range to tackle all brands of elevation change, and SRAM Level hydraulic brakes keep your Queen from abusing all that power. You’ll pilot this rad machine from the comfort of a cockpit outfitted by Salsa, All-City, and Promax, ensuring your ride is both Electric and worthy of frequent repetition.
Steel hardtail mountain bikes are a staple in the midwest. We at the shop all grew up on them and love the way they have evolved particularly in the last few years. We set out to build the perfect modern hardtail that won't feel antiquated in 5 years time. Here's what we came up with. - A balanced geometry that doesn't slacken your headtube to the point of making your front wheel flop in the tight, windy singletrack, but it promises to gives you enough confidence when you're riding somewhere a bit rockier and steeper, say up in Duluth or Marquette. - A sufficiently tight rear-center wheelbase to make the bike nimble but not comically "tukt." We do like a stable rear end for those longer days after all. - A Steel frame that doesn't feel like a tank. - Wireless shifting? yes please! Less cable stop interruptions on this beautiful fade done by our friend Oliver at Dark Matter Finishing. Enough rambling. You should ride this bike, or at least see it in person.
Let's face it. The AIR 9, Niner's lightweight aluminum hardtail, has always been capable. So how do you make capable even better? For one thing, we keep the excellent qualities of Niner's tried and true, hydroformed aluminum. Lightweight and snappy, poppy and peppy, the AIR 9 has plenty of stiffness to get you up to speed when you stomp on the pedals. Next, apply our [R]evolution geometry which puts the rider in the sweet, balanced spot on the bike and the ride experience goes up, way up. Then, add Boost 148 spacing because tire and wheel options are a good thing. Top it off with internal routing for a dropper post and you've made one capable bike even more capable. Run it geared. Run it singlespeed. Comfortable enough for all day riding and quick enough to pin it at the races, the new AIR 9 handles what you throw at it. Genetically engineered? Maybe not. But it sure is fun to ride.
