About Niner Bikes:
     
   
             
 


Niner Bikes was founded by Chris Sugai and Steve Domahidy. They met two years ago on a local Wednesday night ride that they participate in every week to this day. Niner is the culmination of many conversations over coffee, the handlebars, or a cold beer.

Chris Sugai has been an active bike rider since childhood. He raced BMX at the local track by his house with modest success (fortunately for him Tinker Juarez and Mike King were in the age bracket ahead of him), which only fueled his passion for more. In college, Chris traded up to the flat bars of a mountain bike and hasn’t looked back since. In the

last four years, Chris found the simplicity of the single speed a throwback to his BMX years and has been raving about it ever since. Then Chris bought a 29er on a fluke, turned it into a single speed, and now scoffs at any wheel smaller. Having ridden on almost every type of terrain imaginable and in most conditions (including the craze of a 24 hour race) Chris considers the Niner to be “the most efficient way to get from here to there.” Since age 19, Chris has owned and operated his own company, building it from scratch into a comfortable business. Niner is the first company for him that combines a personal passion with his determined business sense. He is extremely excited about what’s to come from Niner Bikes.

Steve Domahidy has also been an active bike rider since childhood. He, however, brings to Niner Bikes fifteen years in the bicycling business doing everything from sales, to race support to product development and finally to designing frames. For the last two years, Steve was hired by Supergo to help revamp
their troubled Weyless mountain bike line and to build on the newly created Scattante Road bike line. His first design from scratch under the Weyless banner was the award winning Weyless XP. Steve developed a close relationship with Easton over the years having worked with them on the development of the Scandium Scattante SC-R, which received rave reviews from magazine editors, and the Easton Ultralight tubed R-550 and R-650 road frames. The R-650 received Ultegra Bike of the Year from Bicycling magazine. Both the Weyless and Scattante brands found critical success and resulted in amazing growth under Steve’s direction. As passionate about bikes and the industry as Steve is, he decided it was time to embark on a new adventure. Having built his resume and contacts throughout the industry, Steve plunged into Niner bikes with an abundance of resources, knowledge, and pure determination.
