    Picked up my Hot Tamale EMD a couple of weeks ago. Been riding the gravel roads until the trails are ready.

    Great looking bike! I'm thinking about building up one of these in Hot Tamale as well. What does yours weigh in at?

    I love my EMD. How do you like the Racing Ralphs on it? I just ordered a pair to run tubeless on some Stans Crest rim with I9 hubs. Are you running them tubeless?

    Thanks


    It weighs in at 23.5 Lbs. I didn't have the budget right now to get it any lighter.

    It's got Sram X9 2X10
    Velocity Blunt wheelset
    Thomson Seatpost & Stem
    Salsa Pro Moto Carbon Bar
    Avid Elixer Brakes
    Fox F29 80mm Fork
    Racing Ralphs Running Tubeless

    Too early to tell on the Ralph's. Haven't had it on a trail yet (Hopefully within the next week). I have only been riding gravel roads so far. I am running them tubeless. This is my first go at tubeless and will most likely switch my full suspension bike over soon. I've got Conti Mountain Kings on that.

    Updated pics of my Licorice Black EMD 1x9. I upgraded the Reba with a Pop-Lock remote lock-out, which has a lot of blue in it. So I decided to go with blue accents all over: bars, pedals, front chain ring, seat post collar, Joplin post and headset. Up next will be replacing the black No Tubes Flows on Silver CK hubs, to white No Tubes Flows on blue I9's.

    Took this pic today after I gave her a MUCH needed bath.





    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    I REALLY want to build up an EMD, but only have about a $1,500 budget. Anybody able to build theirs for that? If not, what did it take to build yours?

    I did for exactly $1500. But, you have to be a real savy internet shopper, look for the best deals, consider Ebay for used items such as seat, bar, seatpost, use websites that match prices (Like TreeFortBikes), and buy an inexpensive wheelset. I skimped on the wheelset so I could get a better fork - Reba SL. I have upgraded stuff since, but when I started out at 1500 bucks, it got the job done.

    And one more note - it ain't gonna be the lightest XC machine. This is a picture of it as it sat for 1500. I've since upgraded pedals, seat, post, stem, bar, grips, tires, and wheels. Much lighter, but well over 2 grand now.

    What chain and rings are you using, and is the magic gear still working? Thanks

    What do you think of that fork so far? Looking at an EMD myself and trying to decide on a fork.

    Have not had a chance to hit the trails with it yet, combination of rain and work is beating me down I had a Reba set at 80mm before and the adjustments you can make on the Fox are way better. I got a great deal on the Fox, and I never liked having a white fork, but I loved 80mm on the Reba on the EMD, I live in FL so I can get away with 80, the EMD handles like an indy car with an 80mm fork.

    So i am gonna give this Fox a few rides at 100 and see how I like it, just riding down my street it feels slower but the cush is real sweet and progressive. Wish there was a way to go 90mm

    My Reba is for sale in the classifieds btw

    What's up?

    Are any of you that own a EMD about 5'2" in height? I was thinking about building my GF a EMD, but was wondering if it will fit her. Thanks guys!

    The EMD I posted is the smallest size they have and I'm 5'8" (short legs keep me off the medium).

    I think you could build one up she could ride but the standover would be iffy and the bars would be well over the saddle - she would have a tough time riding it aggressively.

    @taefoto - Thanks bud.. Yeah, that wouldn't work for her. She gets a little aggresive on her 6er hard tail. She was curious about the 9er Kool Aid.. I have 3, so I am sure it makes her even more curious, haha. The other option was just going with an FS 6er (SC Juliana preferably) to smooth out the trails a bit for her. I know trek and specialized just came some with some 9ers for women.. Maybe this is another option to look at as well. However, these EMDs are f***ing nice. I am gonna get a moon dust one later this year to replace my Fuji Tahoe frame.

    The issue isn't mens versus womens specific products - it's a matter of simply not being able to get the stack height low enough. If she was okay with an 80mm fork you could get it down a little lower... but not enough to make a significant difference.

    Side note - the Julianas are technically in production but they only spit one of those off the production line on every odd week. I work for a major online shop and we've had customers wait three months or longer for Julianas. If you're serious about one then you'll need to find someone who has them physically in stock that or put some money down now and wait.

    I got the Duraflite which is listed at 580 mm on their site. I was thinking of the Niner carbon bar but I decided against the wider bar, I'm glad I did I love the size on the duraflite

    Just received the new carbon Hiflex in the mail this weekend

    I love all the Syntace parts I bought

    Nice bike......looks like maybe you should have bought the next size up.

    Lots of seat post and a long stem.

    Ignore this if you are already on a XL.

    Thanx mtnbikej!

    Does look goofy with that much post hanging out but I like my seat high for the long climbs.
    It's a 410mm post with about 5 inches in the seat tube.

    I'm 5'10" and the large felt awkward.

    Right now the handlebar stem combo feels dead on. Really comfortable and handles really good on fast techy descents.
    No problems on steep loose climbs either.
    Will see how it plays out when I do my weekly 30 miler this weekend.

    Came out to 25lbs 10oz with pedals.

    Totally amazed at how well it climbs over rocks and roots. Especially on steep loose stuff.
    It's like a tractor....
    This 29er fad might just be the real deal

    I like the moondust color, but just had to have red. Just completed this build, planning its first ride in the morning. 20.5 pounds as it sits. Magic gear SS for now, but will most likely go 1x10 each spring until my old legs get a few miles under them!

    Just ordered a EMD in Moondust. Was really keen on the hot tamale, but AUS distributor is currently out of stock in the size I was after,so ordered the moondust instead, and got 20% off the price !
    Now on 2 weeks holiday, in a different state and the suspense is killing me !!

    Gday,

    The EMD has been finished !

    This bike was purchased and built up just after my Mother passed away, so it has a fair bit of meaning for me already.

    Hope you enjoy the pics...

    My Hot Tamale


    Wanted Root Beer but Speedgoat had the old model in red with free shipping, and the Hot Tamale is pretty sexy. My next pic will look like Bucktowns as I am waiting to get wheels (my bike allowance budget is a bit stretched.) but I am thinking of the Pure Rims from BWW or even a used set just to get me rolling. Also have not picked out a handlebar yet - my bars from the 26" are FSA Low Riser at 660mm, but seems like I want a flat bar for this build. Looking through this thread is making me want to leave work early and get into it.

    Sweet! I remember when my Hot Tamale arrived and was all giddy... 2 months later and still putting it together. Don't let that be you. Hopefully i can finish this week. (I say that every week)

    Ugh...I should have never opened this thread. I'm in the midst of my first build process with my '11 Hot Tamale EMD. The lag time is agonizing since I'm on a student's salary; AKA minimum wage at 10-12 hours a week, when classes permit. So far, I've grabbed BB7s (180 and 160 mm), an SLX crank I'll be dropping to 1x10 with a Niner 32T, an X9 rear mech (candy red), heavy PD-M540 pedals, a set of Avid Speed-dial 7s, and many more wants and wishes. I'm hoping Christmas will be extra bountiful this year.

    I'm digging on every one of y'all's rides. Caught up in "the big revolution."

    Make sure those Niner 32t Chainrings are compatible with 10 speed chains first, I made the mistake of ordering a Surly SS ring and didnt work with my 1x10 Sram setup. I was using the PC-1071 chain btw, dont know if a KMC or Shimano chain would have worked, but I went with a blackspire SS chainring instead.

    Thanks for the heads up. How was your setup not working? Did the teeth not fit the size of the links?

    My EMD9 is out of the shipping box.

    All parts ordered or on workbench, really just waiting on the handlebar... Wheelset should arrive next week. Headset installed as well. It should hit the trails on Thanksgiving weekend. Photos to come.

    I feel your pain! I'm also in the long-drawn-out process of building a '11 Hot Tamale EMD 9. I'm making only slightly faster progress since I'm on a public school teacher's salary! At this point, I have the fork (Reba RLT Ti), bars (Niner Flat-top alloy), headset & spacers, bottom bracket, seat post collar, and skewers. Fortunately, I covered a few extra classes last month, so I was able to order my seatpost and stem (both Thomson) yesterday.

    Man, I want to finish this thing and get to riding it!

    The chainring was a hair too wide, since 10 speed chains are narrower than 9 speed chains.

    Nice! Have you gotten out to ride it yet? I'm waiting for a front derailleur to show up (hopefully today) so I can finish switching mine over to a 2x10 setup.

    Hot Tamale

    Well since the Hot Tamales are sneaking into this thread, just had my maiden voyage on Wed. Skies were dark and rain was coming but I got 15 miles on it to see how it shakes out. Some issues with the GXP BB but the overall ride is pretty nice. Plus it rides so much better to and from the dirt, really like a cross bike. Weighs about 24.

    Yea, got out for a 32 mile ride today, it was very nice. Need to get used to a hardtail and setup the Reba correctly, but other than that it was great!

    Lot of Reba setup info in this thread - Reba fine tuning

    Yeah, I rode a FS bike all summer and ended up selling it, just never felt right on it. But oh man did I miss the rear shock the first few rides back on a hard tail (it's hella rocky around here).

    Get the Wheelset. Not a big fan of Alex but I scored a new/takeoff pair for a pretty cheap. And the Rocket Rons are pretty good to. I can ride these until I feel like upgrading. Of course, true to Alex, even on a new/takeoff the rear hub had issues. And they are centerlock.

    I got a wheelset from eBay, WTB Laser Disc and Deore hubs

    Looking forward to put together the bike, the fork will be here soon and the wheelset the next week

    Has anyone ever seen a 2012 EMD?
    I have an RDO and 2012 EMD on order and the RDO is at the dealer waiting, whilst the EMD my dealer says was informed wouldn't arrive until Jan 1st.

    I keep checking this thread each time there is a new post hoping to see a 2012 EMD.

    Cheers

    Hi James,

    Niner Bikes doesn't use "model years" per say, but here is the next generation of the EMD9 which has a tapered head tube and hydro formed top/down tube. These are in stock and now shipping to dealers.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Brett,
    I'd seen the press photos and amazing pics on your site. I appreciate the lack of model years. Perhaps in the absence of model years generation codes or chassis codes as in the car market would be easier for discussions.

    Those photos give a good interpretation of how it would look thank you.

    Any other IRL photos members have I'll be keen to see and will be sure to post some when I have mine and my wife's bikes rolling.

    Cheers everyone

    James

    Hi James,

    Good ideas. We can tell when any frame was made by the serial number. Serial numbers indicate production date years and the week they were made. The first set of numbers is the year the frame was built. The next set is the production week. For instance, 11190123 was produced in 2011 the 19th week. 9490123 was produced in 2009 the 49th week. For a list of weeks, this link is a great resource. Week Numbers for 2011

    I posted these on another thread, but here is Aaron's DJ bike. The black EMD9 looks really good as well.

    In the end we're just bike geeks like you and we live to ride! It's pretty fun to geek out with certain builds, ride different parts, etc.. This is a great time to be riding bikes! Now only of our snow would melt. I can only ride studded Nokians for so long...

    Have a great weekend!

    Brett

    Have you built up an XL hydroformed EMD yet? What does the frame weigh in XL?

    My newly built Niner EMD size medium. Running full Sram X-9 with Shimano SLX brakes, Suntour Epicon 100mm fork with 15mm front axle, BWW wheelset, crank brothers 3 pedals and a few other misc items. Current weight running tubless is 26lbs on the button. Was shooting for 23-24lbs but based on money spent I'm happing with the 26lb.

    EMD Moondust

    Here is my EMD. My first Niner was a Sir 9. Loved it, but too flexy when putting down the hammer. Went a one 9 which is my current SS. I felt I needed a geared Niner that would be a good transition from the road race season to the trail. The only problem I had was, that the EMD was too stiff under my buttocks. Everything else I loved. So after almost hitting the "order" button at Jenson for a new 2011 air 9, I said how else can I make this bike comfortable but keep the stiffnes? Use shim, easton EC90 zero post 27.2

    EMD 9 Moondust XL
    Easton EC 90 carbon low rise hadlebar 25.4
    Niner "naked" carbon fork
    Ritchey WCS 100mm stem 25.4
    Ergon grips
    SRAM XO brakes
    SRAM XO Shifters
    SRAM XO rear derailleur
    Easton zero EC90 400mm seat post
    USE shim 31.6 to 27.2
    Salsa lip loc 35.0
    Chris King Head set
    Stans Arch wheels
    Chris King Hubs
    Hutchinson Python Tubeless tires

    Thanks. It's a medium.

    This morning had his/her maiden trip. Was kind of wet, but had a blast. Fast, great cornering, easy climbing. No regrets what so ever about changing to a 29er.

    Nice build Laxcat,
    let me know how you like the 29'er Rocket Ron's. I have Racing Ralphs on all my bikes and had a set of Nobby Nic's on one of my 26" bikes. I'm glad Schwalbe has expanded their 29" range.

    I have an RDO and 2012 EMD on order and the RDO is at the dealer waiting, whilst the EMD my dealer says was informed wouldn't arrive until Jan 1st.

    I keep checking this thread each time there is a new post hoping to see a 2012 EMD.

    Cheers

    James
    Brett, any particular dealers who are receiving their new generation EMD's yet?
    My expected delivery came and went.

    Thank again for following this forum.

    I only have a few rides on the Rocket Ron's but they seem pretty good. This is my first 29er and first tubeless set up so I dont have any similar tires to compare them with. I live in Virginia so the trails are mostly hardpacked with rocks and roots. The tires seems to roll fast and offer plenty of grip, I only had a few times where I slid the front.

    I did have a real hard time getting the tires to seal up tubeless, the sidewalls have alot of small holes so it took alot of sealant and messing with them to get them all sealed.

    Yep it's a root beer. It's been hanging on the wall in our team's shop for about 3 years so I decided to give her a home.

    Mine has held up pretty well so far. I'm 270 and I ride pretty technical trails with smallish drops.
