    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
