Carbon // 29"-27.5" // 140mm rear // 160MM front // Starting at $2999
Business in the front, party in the rear.
The emerging crop of mixed-wheel bikes have been described as mullet bikes, so the above is certainly appropriate. But there is more to the new 160mm front 140mm rear travel Alchemy NINE7FIVE than just humorous sloganeering: this bike is a serious enduro weapon. With the bigger front wheel, the bike has the ability to mow over any obstacle. And with the smaller rear wheel, it provides the quick handling of a playful 27.5 ride. It’s really the best of both worlds.

Exclusive Patented Sine Suspension
The NINE7FIVE is a one-of-a-kind, do-it-all full-suspension bike designed to climb and descend with the same aplomb. The NINE7FIVE features a patented dual-linkage platform called the Sine Suspension, which was designed by suspension guru David Earle. The Sine name is derived from the way the shock rate, when graphed, resembles a sine wave. With Sine, there is regression through the first part of the travel to absorb small bumps and provide climbing traction, progression in the middle of the stroke to avoid wallowing on big hits or in hard, fast corners, and then slight regression again at end stroke to enable full use of rear wheel travel. Sine is also designed to minimize chainstay growth to improve pedaling efficiency and keep the suspension active under braking.
Custom Designed Link
The Alchemy NINE7FIVE was designed to be an all out race bike, fast at speed but still quick in the corners. Luckily, the Sine suspension system is so versatile, all it took was a lot of engineering and a custom link to bring this bike to life. And does it come to life! Alchemy Enduro racer Cody Kelley won the first enduro race he entered on the mixed wheel bike and plans to race the balance of the EWS season on it.
They say the devil is in the details, and there’s not doubt we focused on the minutia with the NINE7FIVE. The bike features details like internal cable routing and a direct mount chain guide, as well as every bike features Fox Factory suspension both front and rear. The rear shock has been specially tuned for Alchemy to provide the best in pedaling efficiency and downhill performance and all of the bikes are using stiff and light Fox 36 forks.
