    Thanks, at my local shop with the MK 2.2's on, it weighed just over 22lbs. The WW LT's make it about 1/2lb. heavier. The frame is a large.

    I'm coming from a 28-29lb. FS bike, so this thing feels like a feather! I've forgotten how responsive a bike is without any suspension.
    With all of our snow I haven't been able to take it on any trails yet but I'm having fun bombing around on the local bike paths.

    The weather here has been mild the past couple of weeks with temps in the 32-36F range and may hit the 40's by this weekend.
    I'm hoping that will melt enough snow and then it will freeze again to make the trails decent enough for riding.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    My first ride with the new saddle was a long one and lets just say, this saddle is very unforgiving. The next day I was sooo sore- I guess I just have to get use to it.... not the best one for long rides..

    Size medium. Right now it weighs 24.5 lbs and that's with tubes. I'm going tubeless Monday so I'm shooting for around 23 lbs after that. I have barely ridden it yet due to this crappy weather we have had in the Southeast so I can't wait for it to warm up!!!

    Great looking bikes guys. I'll finally add mine to the list. First 29er and I love it. I haven't gotten much ride time because the weather has been pretty crappy but from my hour ride it is a sweet bike. Can't wait till spring!

    Nice build Kersh, I love those grips. Are those ESI's. I might have to get some of those when mine start getting nasty!

    ellen m, how do you like those Wierwolf's compared to the Ardent's that you had on?
    I think those are Ardent's in your other picture.

    Yes they are ESI's. They're good but they are quite a bit more forgiving wrapped around a set of carbon bars like I had on my Epic. I'm ready to try the new tubeless setup on Tuesday. I'm anxious to find out how the Duro tire holds up on the back.

    Hey Ellen_muenchen how do you like those WeirWolf LT's? I'm thinking about gettin some bigger tires and that's about as big as you can get. (I've got Exiowolfs at the moment).

    They are good in dry conditions but really bad when it gets muddy. I love the dampening (resulting from the volume) and the weight. And they look cool .

    As you can see, winter has come back to where I live: Munich, Germany.
    But, no matter what conditions we have, the EMD is good for everything.

    Nice builds. I'm 5'7-1/2". Basically a racer, and wanting to give 29ers a try. Kinda obsesed with the weight. I have a Full Suser Turner on the 21lbs ballpark. I have 2 concerns.

    Has any body has build a 29er hardtail (whit front suspensuion) below the 22lbs mark?

    Is there any way you can have a racier position, I mean I'm a small guy and I like to have the bars at about 1" below seat (horizontally).

    Thanks for your help

    This thread is full of win.

    To the guy above, you can hit 22lbs, but will be dishing out the $, of course. I have a very cheap build (x.7), and it dials in at 25lbs.

    At your height (same as me), you're on the fence with small or medium frame. I have a medium, and if I flip my stem (6d), it'd certainly be below my seat. (inseam 29")

    Thx Shmoo ...light wheels and light tires saves you about 2-3 lbs, and you will be there at the 22--23 lbs. (I mean, for racing, light stuff only for racing)

    I noticed that I'm right there in the fence of a small and a medium and also notice that the small change the geometry over the other sizes, and that makes me wonder. I like running bike a little smaller. I guess I'll try to test one, before buying.

    Thanks again

    Another build by Tree Fort Bikes. Big Kudos to both Tree Fort and Niner Bikes as I didn't think I would have it until next week. Niner speeded up the shipping and it arrived Friday morning. To my surprise I got a call from Tree Fort that afternoon that it was completed. Great group of guys to work with. .

    It just had it's first voyage ride....39 miles of dirt roads and trails.

    Woo Hoo! Glad to see that you got to take it out!

    I found your Pint of Stan's and your computer should be in Monday, If you swing by Tuesday I can hook it up for you.

    That sounds great. I will probably stop by on Tuesday to pick those items up. I was using a cycling app today on my iphone to track my time, distance, etc. but realized I do need the computer for training. I might also swap the seat out to try another one.

    Will probably do another ride tomorrow morning....either Island Lake or Poto. I can't believe how comfy and fast this bike is.

    Rootbeer is new? I thought that was one of the original colors with Licorice Black?

    Speaking of Black, I gotta represent:
    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    Nice ride Cooper!

    Are you running those Bonti's tubeless? They are some of the easiest rims to convert it's unreal. How do you like that Phenom? I have one on my EMD, but just can't seem to find the sweet spot.

    24 lbs. with suspension!!! That's sick! Enjoy.
