    Emd9

    New bike.

    The wheels don't look as big in these photos as they do when I'm holding them and pretending to steer a bus



    Similarly, these bars don't look as narrow as they feel when I'm riding. I think they will be the first thing to replace - Easton Havoc Carbon 750's on the way.



    Niner have their graphics down pat.



    Love this



    Hope ProII Evo's laced to Stans Flow rims with DT Competition spokes. The most expensive part of the bike at $575. The rear hub is stupid loud.



    Aforementioned narrow Easton CNT bars (685mm)



    Suntour's 15QR solution. Not bad, but it's designed to work with hubs that have a 15mm sleeve for the entire 100mm hub width. These Hope's are convertible, so only 15mm for about 30mm on either side. So sliding the axle out will require me to find a 15mm PVC tube to carry around. No biggie.



    $75 Easton XC cranks - cheaper than the e-13 XCX-ST chainguide.

    Nice one, shiny

    Either those wheels are huge or those brake disks are tiny.

    And you're after 750 wide bars - whoa! Those bars already look pretty wide to me.

    Don't know about those cheap cranks though, one of them seems to have fallen off when you turned the bike around for the second pic.

    My mum once lived next door to, and was good friends with, world famous one-legged speed skier Michael Milton. I met him a few times and turns out he was into mountain biking as well (he later went on to represent Australia in Beijing in track cycling).

    If he can get around on one crank, so can I

    (OK, technically he had the other arm there, just no pedal)

    I hope you made a BROOM BROOM noise at the same time

    Nice build, it looks the goods.

    I have serious new bike envy at the moment. Sooo want a new one but soooo need a job first.

    Nice one Nuke I had picked up on the YT thread on RB that you had ab EMD9. I was about to hassle you into putting up some pics.
    Looks good!

    This didn't get the recognition it deserved IMHO. That is one hot frame by all accounts.

    I think one of those just got ridden to a podium at the World 24hr solo champs running 150mm travel!!

    How are you going to build it up?

    I figure it's because i'm not Victorian!

    I just got the RS Revelation WC forks for it, brand new, only to find the stanchion scratched right out of the box.

    Just saw this bike in a magazine from earlier in the year, did you go with the 120mm or 140mm? Or do you get all 3 rocker arms? Looks like a good set up.

    You only get the rocker arms for the amount of travel you specify. I went for 140mm as it is replacing my Mach 5 and the 140mm travel version was what I tested.

    Nice, quite a change from your hardtail? Smooths out the rocks on the trail below?

    What do you think of the Maestro suspension?

    What rocks?

    On that techy trail I found myself still picking lines that I would on the hardtail. Spent a bit of time playing with both shock and fork. We still need a few more rides to 'bond!!'.

    Loved it on the more open trails near Janefield.

    My new steed! 1 x 10 Sram XX, ENVE 240hub/aerolite spokes, custom painted SID XXWC forks, WSC cockpit, Eggbeaters 11 pedals and Conti Race Kings... Total weight as pictured with Pedals, rear light and Bidon cage is 8.4kg!

    I guess this is one of the advantages of working in a bike shop!
