Excellent condition; used only on a couple of occasions. I cannot see any cosmetic damage. The fork steerer has not been cut very much. It is relatively clean although there is some dirt or sand trapped under the protective tape on the down tube near to the bottom bracket (Can be seen in the photographs)
Everything you need to know is below:

In my opinion this is a very good offering for a gravel bike:
The geometry is a good balance between comfort, handling and practicality for multiple use case scenarios (Please see geometry chart: https://web.archive.org/web/20190911210624im_/https://media.pagefly.io/file/get/rlt9_steel_geo-1minjpg-1546549890838.jpg)
The tyre clearance is ample for wide tyres making for a comfortable ride (The frame material has no bearing on ride quality or comfort!)
The steel frame makes for a strong and dependable bicycle which will take good care of you if you take good care of it
I bought this at the end of last year with the intention of doing my own gravel bike build but I have decided to only focus on road bikes. That being said, I am in no hurry to sell...
I would much prefer it if you collect the bike frame however if it is necessary to ship it I will do it properly. The frame will be well packaged with pipe insulation protecting the frame tubes, it will come in an appropriately sized bicycle box with lots of packaging inside and will be shipped with parcelforce 48.
To buy the equivalent frame from new it would cost ~£1,400 (https://www.bikeinn.com/bike/niner-rlt-9-gravel-frame/137545944/p?id_producte=10645462&country=UK&belboon=2107152212206310910&campaign=) and I am including the hope BB (~£100: https://r2-bike.com/HOPE-Bottom-Bracket-PF30-PF46-73-mm-stainless-steel) , to potential cost to install the BB and cane creek (~£50: https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/cane-creek-40-series-zs44-zerostack-headset/rp-prod115635) headset amongst other things so this is a considerable saving for a frame which is practically new.
Sweet frame. Just a hint: according to the forum rules you can't offer anything here that is also for sale elsewhere (like eBay).
I wasn't aware of that. Thanks for the heads up!
Nice to see this pointed out gently for a change (guilty as charged).
I am not sure why it is doing that funky thing with the quoted code for listed items. I am going to leave it for the time being...
Get outta town! This is nice!
Love the 'no screwdriver' sticker.
This is a brilliant do it all bike that does all well.
Sold. Thanks for your interest
