  • Big.Nine TFS Frame

    6061 double butted and techno formed aluminium frame with more relaxed geometry. Comes equipped with class-leading, premium technologies such as smooth welding, tapered head tube, inboard disc mounts, internal cable routing as well as F, C and K-mounts.

    Size Specific Wheels

    Dependent on frame size we offer 650B or 29er versions on the TFS and SPEED frame level. The requirements of smaller riders (reduced standover height, preferred lower cockpit) are best met by 650B on S and M frame sizes whilst at the other side of the spectrum, L and XL only come with 29er wheels. Size M is available in either 650B or 29er. 

    New Speed Frame

    Following in the footsteps of the TFS frame which was introduced in 2018, the SPEED frame is now in line to get a makeover for 2019. The introduction of slim tube shapes creates a new look and a more relaxed geometry, through a shorter top tube and a higher head tube, resulting in a more upright riding position and enhanced trail visibility. The new frame also comes with IS brake mounts that are positioned within the rear triangle as well as with kickstand and fender mounts.

    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

    The 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.
