    I'm having cable envy. Weird. I would also love to know the cost on that build. And a weight. Congrats on the bike!

    Thanks a lot guys!

    the headset cap is from purelycustoms.com

    the cost of the build is like buying a Niner Jet9 with an XT build.

    I know I should have gone that route, call it stupid or bike crazy, just more fun doing it that way. Just been testing it around the block, tomorrow I hit the trails. If i go below -200lbs then maybe a FS jet9 as a price but this time but the whole bike. (32 lbs to go)

    Ride safe and thanks again for the compliments.

    Sweet bike man! Good luck with the 200lbs. You'll get there. I went from 225 in May of this year to 185 now with about 75/25 riding/hiking.

    like the thumbies

    How to the TT shifters go with the rear mech?

    I like this set up, & i was thinking about a C'dale roady rebuild/resto I'm doing that might work as down tube shifter as well if they work with tumbies?

    BTW, Love your buildd i have Bike envy
    29er you just know when ur ready!!!!

    The TT shifters work well with the XO and XX derailleurs, I tripled check in the compatibility chart
    At the SRAM website. Paul's thumbies are great!

    I started MTB'ing when the sought after shifters were the XT thumb shifters! I guess I'm an old fart, back in the days of biopace! (Wth is that??)

    thanks again for the comments, and yes the mud is missing! Just finished building, the mud/dirt will follow.

    Nice Build!
    I have a Niner RIP 9 but wanted something rigid so just built up an EMD too. Taking it out on it's first ride tomorrow should be awesome.

    I'm 5'10 with a 30 inseam. Medium was too big for me, when I demo'd the older EMD frame. I kinda have a weird body, short legs, long trunk and normal arms. Using it with an 80mm stem. no issues, in hitting the shoe with the front wheel while turning.

    Man, I'm totally copying that shifter setup . . . I didn't realize Paul was still making those things. Too bad it's so hard to find a single SRAM barcon (shifter for 1x). They are all pairs.
