Niner Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy with Pending Sale to Colorado Investment Group
What makes for a successful business is staying at the pointy end of the spear and keeping your business viable financially. While Niner was made popular as a company that decided to build only 29" wheel bikes at a time well past the introduction of 29" wheels when others had started to pave the way for their acceptance it was a good move on their part to get on that band wagon. They had a good run and developed a fan base and world wide distribution. They were made aware of the advent of b+ in 2011 prior to its success and blew it off. Not saying that if they had taken initiative at that time it would have staved off their current Chapter 11 proceedings but going forward they perhaps should be more aware of that fact that instituting new developments is better than following the developments of others after the fact. I guess that leads to their interest in R&D but making kids bikes and e bikes part of the program only reeks of the Rip off & Duplicate aspect of it.

Niner RIP 9 RDO and JET 9 RDO - First Ride
I thought is was more strange when they started making road bikes. They had the inside line on b+ three years ago and blew it off.

TPC Museum Series 13: John Parker, Yeti Cycles - Video
Missy went to world's in Durango and raced as a privateer on a Nishiki Ariel I got her through my shop. She got like 7th or 8th in the DH and raced the XC also. Parker called me at the shop (in VT.) after the race and asked me about her and she got together with Yeti shortly after that event. She didn't win world's until 94' in Vail riding for Cannondale.
