    How did that work out? I was thinking about do the same thing. I don't like horizontal dropouts, and don't want to deal with an EBB. Since you can't adjust for chain stretch due to wear, does that cause any issues?

    How did you get it to work? I tried on mine and the chain was way too tight. Ended up using a tensioner.

    Here's mine. Running 100mm up front and I agree, Ton's of Fun!

    I run my EMD at 100mm as well, and it carves, at least to me.

    Much better than my old Trek did.

    I'm also running a 90mm stem.

    I'm running 100mm ('09 Reba Race), and the handling rocks.

    It was a little tight at first, the rear axle didn't sit all the way down in the drop out with the bike upsidedown, but after a ride the chain stretched a little and it's been fine. Few rides under it's belt now, and no problems so far. I've got a tensioner just in case it gets too loose, but so far it doesn't seem like i'll have that problem.

    I started with 80mm and couldn't move it to 100mm fast enough after about 3 weeks. I like my front end a bit higher and need a little more cush for my hands tho..

    Do any of you guys have a weight for your bike? I'm about to pull the trigger on a medium EMD frame and was wondering what some of the final weights were of some of your builds.

    A bit over 24lbs in size large with middle of the road components. (e.q., XT 1x9 drivetrain, XT/mavic wheels). You could easily build one in the low 20s if you want to drop the cash..

    The one of mine above was 22.38 as shown. I got new wheels that dropped it to 21.9.

    I just finished my EMD, size large. It's set up as a 1X9, has mostly XT parts plus a Niner carbon fork. It weighs roughly 22lbs.
