FULL SPEED AHEAD SUPPORTS THE INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN BICYCLING ASSOCIATION’S (IMBA)
During the month of November, Full Speed Ahead supported The International Mountain Biking Association’s (IMBA) vision that everyone should have access to great trails.
IMBA creates, enhances and protects great places to ride mountain bikes. It is focused on creating more trails close to home to grow the quantity and quality of mountain bike communities across the U.S., so everyone has access to close-to-home rides and iconic backcountry experiences.
This latest edition in a longstanding tradition of one-of-a-kind Niner RIP 9 RDO frames were designed by Niner Senior Graphic Designer Nate Adams and painted by Spectrum Paint and Powder Works. They come assembled with parts donated by IMBA supporters such as FSA, who have provided the following parts:
Gradient WideR29 Wheels
Gradient Carbon Handlebar
Flowtron Dropper Seatpost
Three bikes are available for bidding on at The Pro’s Closet eBay store, one small, one medium and one large. Bidding runs November 11–17. Read more about the custom IMBA Niners on the Niner blog.
“With FSA’s deep roots in the Pacific Northwest, mountain biking is something very near to all of our hearts here at FSA. Being close to the heartbeat of the progressive MTB landscape, FSA strives to help other communities develop and realize the potential they may have right out their backdoor. You don’t need to live to in the mountains to be a mountain biker, just a love for the outdoors and your bicycle is all you really need.” said Mike Lawless, FSA US MTB marketing manager.
