Everyone at Niner Bikes is thrilled to welcome Syd Schultz and Macky Franklin to our extended Ninerd family. After a few conversations late last year, we all agreed that Niner would be a great fit for them as they adventure van and film across the universe. So, this dynamic duo picked up their new Niner frames while passing through Colorado in December.
Syd and Macky are perfect representatives of what Niner is all about and we couldn't be happier to see them on our bikes. They're adventurers at heart and they delight in sharing their knowledge, experience, and travel tales with a growing audience on YouTube. If you're not yet watching their films, start here.
"We’re Syd and Macky. We race mountain bikes professionally, live in a van and travel the country and the world racing the hardest (and most fun) enduro races we can find.
All that sounds glamorous, but often it’s quite the opposite. Think long nights driving around looking for a campsite. Lost baggage. Breakdowns. A lot of blood, sweat, tears, love and logistics is going on behind the scenes. In many ways, that effort is what makes this lifestyle rewarding. But it’s also the part that nobody sees."
