    Just finished mine up. Short of having the brake lines shortened a bit its a monster of a climber and more capable than I thought on the way back down!

    Got a nice hot tamale frame on the way and have a Paul chain keeper from another bike for a 1x10 setup. After reading the fit issues, I decided to pick up one of these-



    and will post up pics once the setup is done.

    A little over 22 pounds, I might get a Niner carbon fork for it so I can get my Ti. fork back, then again, I might not.

    1st build


    2nd build


    The new build with the Lefty has 12 miles on the wheels, drivetrain, fork and stem. Unfortunately, it never gets ridden like my other bikes so I'll be dumping it asap to clear space in the garage.

    Gang -

    On avg. what are you all building up your Niner EMD’s for? Its great that everyone puts a parts list, but I’d love the extra step and an avg. price.

    I know this is an open ended question as people can go high end ($$$$) or low end ($). I've ben trying to price out everyone's build and that is taking forever...

    I’m looking at doing one myself, and I’m trying to stick to a budget. Anyone feel like giving me some help in putting together something for $1,800 or so? I’ve tried my local shop and the best they can do is $2,200, which is more then I can swing.
    Could always run it rigid for a while. I’ve been looking at lots of different parts and prices and one could spend a lifetime on the net looking…

    Think its do-abe for $1,800 and to get something that is decent? Using the 2011 ($350) frame of course.

    Vermontone-
    I built my EMD up for around $1700. I already posted specs and prices somewhere else, but I will give you the skinny:
    2011 EMD M frame(299)
    Rebal RLT 15mm (399), Stans Arch EX (459), XT 10spd Dyna sys R D, Front D, SLX pods, SLX cassette, XT chain (220), SLX crank (119), VP Cane creek headset (59), Crank Bros post (39), monkey bars (49), Elixr R hydros (110), etc...

    This is from yesturday:

    My new 2012

    Picked up the frame yesterday, lots of shopping to do for parts still. First big decision is 80mm or 100mm for the fork.

    I can't see running anything less than a 100mm up front. Even if you go with a 100 - you could always sample the 80mm option with the reducer. I'm pretty sure they're still making those things. I've got a 100mm 2010 F29 on the front end of my EMD, and it came with the reducer. Not that I've ever considering using it, but at least it would give you the option of choosing which scenario you wanted to run.

    Here's mine. Currently 2x10 and 20.2lbs, but I'm switching to 1x10 so that should make it sub-20.

    What fork did you choose? I'm leaning toward the Niner steel fork for my Moondust frame that came last week. There were a set of Mavics on Craigslist this am w/Avid 160mm rotors and Hutchinson tires for $500. Nearly new. That would be a good buy no?

    if they are 29er crossmax thats a good deal, depending how "new" they are, i paid for new set 650 dollars, bought a manitou tower pro at chainreactioncycles england and also at bikesonline.com a niner carbon vanna white for $ 300, good deal i think

    New 2012 EMD build

    Finally got this all built up last week and took it out for it's first ride Friday before work. Love it! I'm really blown away by the fork as well - I wasn't sure about going full-rigid, but this setup will be perfect for me. It takes roots, washboard, and mium sized bumps just fine. Just means I need to pick good lines through the more technical stuff, rock gardens, etc. Sorry, I don't have an exact weight yet, but when it was almost complete (everything but chain and derailleur housing), it was around 21 lbs using the inexact bathroom scale method. I almost went with a 1x10 setup but there are some very steep climbs around here...we'll see though, I may still go that route...






    mmmm...crunchy!

    7Wayne7: Nice build. The white fork looks good in contrast to the black frame. BTW, what tires are you running?

    Thanks. They're Conti Race King's 2.25, running tubeless. The orange logos didn't match up well, so I put my sharpie to good use...

    I'm running the "magic gear" - 32 x 18 puts the chain at the right length to run without a tensioner. The chain can be a bit tight when new, I try to pre-stretch it a bit before installation. And I can only get a few months until it's too loose, but I'm happy to buy a new chain more often as a small price to pay for the look and feel of an "non-tensioner" setup! I built on a tight budget, if you're wondering why I didn't just buy a single-speed specific frame...

    Nice bike man! I almost pulled the trigger on that color; decided moondust was a better fit for me. Now after looking at your bike, I am back on the fence!


    Enjoy the ride!

    dviratinis, close to the crank there's a chainsuck mark on the chain stay?

    I'm about to put together my 2x10 X9 crank on my EMD 11 too

    no its not a chainsuck mark - its a Lizard skins frame protection sticker. Thanks God no chainsucks stilll in 200 km and almost all of them on offroad trails Still wondering if I need additional spacer there because chainring is only 2-3 mm from CS...

    I'll add mine. Had never ridden a 29er before but realized I had most of the parts to build up a bike. Just needed the fork, wheels, and frame for a 29er. Happened to ding a rim on my Blur LT so got new wheels for it and took the old ones apart so I had some Hope Pro 2 hubs and decided to build up some wheels using crest rims. Got the Manitou fork at a really good price and the frame was from Jenson on sell.

    It truly is amazing how I'm faster on the EMD. I was racing a Blur XC carbon and my home trail times are definitely faster on the EMD. Have yet to actually race the bike but will in August hopefully. Have moved a lot of my parts from the Blur XC to the EMD. Sits right at 24 pounds with my lighter pedals on. Bikes not clean but it's good to be dirty!

    Muahdib that's looking good! How do you like that fork? Pretty sure my emd will end up with the tower pro and charger pro wheels

    I've been very happy with the fork. Very controlled and pretty adjustable. I'd certainly recommend it especially for the price you can typically get it for.

    I just recently bought a 2010 medium emd from a guy, working on building it up. Ive got a fox f29 100mm, chris king hubs laced to mavic 719. and now I need to get the drivetrain. Im looking to get either xo or xt 2x10 but not sure what bottom bracket to get? I think Ive seen its a bb30 but if I go with the xt I will need to purchase a dfferent bottom bracket correct? I'd probaly like to get a chris king or some other high end bottom bracket if I do need to change that out, any suggestions?

    I am gettin close!



    This will be my first full rigid. If I like it I will replace the cromoto fork for the 15mm cromoto fork. Trying to decide between black flag pros or charger pros. What do you think?

    Also, this frame has a TINY headtube!

    Here's mine! Weights ~22 lbs with the current setup. I no longer have the AC Tubeless 29 wheelset, but the All Mountain set instead.

    I am still drooling on the EMD9 with the white rigid fork I saw earlier in this thread

    Current setup: 22 lbs, including the dog I assume? well done! That's an awesome feature...Why didn't my EMD come with one? You'll have to get him/her a "Pedal Damn it!" collar.

    Anyway, great build - especially like the white rims with the black/white frame

    No good pictures yet because I am not done with it.



    It still needs a good wheelset (still debating which ones)
    Shimano XT crank
    SPDs
    Different brakes

    Also will be replacing the big ass front rotor with an ice tech 160mm

    Thanks Wayne. My doggie currently weights 14 lbs, almost as much as my bike LOL! Thanks much. I recently changed my wheels to AC All Mountain 29, but also chose the buzzsaw (white) color. Here's a recent picture

    I'll post a couple "in it's natural environment" photos separately, but for now here's my brand-spankin-new EMD9:



    You can also check my blogular post for out-of-the-box photos and specs at: Daddy Rides Bikes: New Bike!

    It's a little over 25 lbs, but currently has tubes so that should drop a little bit when I get it setup tubeless (tires and rims are both tubeless-compatible). Went for a ride yesterday and had a blast!

    I will be getting Niner EMD 2012 with an RDO tapered fork. What headset do you recommend guys? Is there anything reasonable below $100.

    Thanks.

    Why not go with the cane creek standard? The 40 is excellent quality. I used one on my wife's EMD and my RDO.

    Lookin good BOSS100x! You going to cut the steerer once you know you like the fork?

    On a side note- I got a new rear wheel, Hope/Arch and a new SLX crank!

    Yeah Thank you! I'm experimenting on different heights for my bars, I won't cut the steerer until I know exactly where I like em.

    Here's mine - I posted it a while back in the drivetrain forum. I've since cut the steerer so the stack isn't as high on the top.

    Is anyone running a X7/x9 28/42 crank setup on EMD 2012? How is the clearance? I've got a frame for my wife but I am not sure about the crank.

    I missed that post.I guess I am going to have buy XT 2x10 crankset then. I may be pushing but I wonder if could reuse my SLX triple crankset. Yes, it is going work. I chckec Niner's website and completely missed a part about triple crank. +rep
