    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.

    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.

    Looks Great Joe!

    I am getting so excited to build this bike up for my girl. We have gone through a few bikes in the last 6 months trying to find the right one for her! I am hoping the 2012 E.M.D is the one for her! We went with the Anodized black!

    Carla, I am a fan though I don't own a Niner..You guys are having a demo day down here in S. Florida....I am hoping to try out a RIP and WFO (not for Florida riding) but for elsewhere! I built up a Jet9 for a friend up in DC and it changed him as a rider!

    Less of a hijack, more of a homage

    So, that's what might have been if I missed out on the 2011 frame. But I didn't.

    Same 3 letters on the side and Hot Tamale color but different frame year and build


    WTB SST saddle
    Easton EA70 post
    Salsa clamp
    Salsa Pro Moto 3 stem 90/-6degrees (not pictured yet)
    Salsa Pro Moto bars
    King headset/bike jewelry
    Lizard Northshore lock-ons
    Avid Speed Dials and BB7's
    Reba 100mm
    Shimano LX shifter still rocking from my first hard tail 8 years ago
    XT shadow rear der (1x9)
    Truvativ Firex 1x cranks
    Salsa Delgado rims with King rear and XT front hubs
    Racing Ralph 2.4 up front, Geax aka out back
    Eggbeaters

    Totals up to 26.4 #, pretty good for minimal investment. Great geometry, maneuverability, and climbs well.

    D'Oh - I bought a little high at $369 but I don't think I would have gotten a red one in my size at the current price.

    I bought this 3 weeks before the new frame came out. Still real happy with it, but would have loved the new frame.

    Adrian....awesome build!!

    I will get the black one I bought for my girl for Christmas and her birthday!! Could you post more pictures that show more details?

    Also what is the size/weight? I see you have lefties and cresties..so I don't think I can get the weight to what yours is set up with a 1X..but still would like to know

    You would be exactly correct, it is a 1x10. I haven't weighed it yet, but I can tell you its less than 25 pounds, I think its closer to 24.

    I will get more pictures up shortly, I am away from my home PC currently.

    The black frame (at least I think so) looks amazing in person. It has a really nice matte finish that just looks stealthy as hell.
