The Niner One 9 RDO 2-Star Single Speed Bike is the easiest way to get out on a top-flight single speed rig.
The headliner is the frameset. The One 9 RDO is an incredible ride. The frame is built with Niner's best and most advanced fabrication techniques and designs. RDO is short for Race Day Optimization, their way of stating that this frame is as light, as stiff, and as compliant as they could make it. They wanted to dial all those features to the max. So the bike has plenty of lateral rigidity, while allowing for plenty of vertical compliance. Helping with this are the thru-axles, 15mm Maxle in front and 12x142mm in the rear. In terms of geometry, it's dialed, as only a company that builds exclusively for 29ers could be. The bike is scooty and slashy and has an amazing ability roll no matter what's in front of it.
The bottom bracket is where they decided to put their chain line adjustment. The shell accepts just about any crank standard, but when you're going single speed, you need the BioCentric II. This allows for considerable adjustment, to the point that you can use it to tune for geometry (like seat angle, bottom bracket height, and such).
Wheels on the bike are from Stan's NoTubes. The 3.30 SS/Rapid are fast, light, durable, and tubeless ready. The tires, Niner's preferred Schwalbe Rapid Rob 2.4" and Racing Ralph 2.25" EVO TLs are also tubeless ready. They come with tubes. The wheels, with 180/160mm rotors are stopped by Shimano Deore M615 calipers and levers.
