    Niner EMD 9 Build

    Received my EMD frame from Competitive Cyclist a few months back. Just now getting parts in. Frame is Tamale size medium. Planning to be XX1 drivetrain.

    Seatpost, stem, and bar are Niner allow for now. Trying to get the bike into the 22lb range.

    Just got my Stan's ZTR Crest Wheels with Hans Dampfs attached (thanks CC for mounting and sealing the tires!). First hiccup: HDs are too big! Frame rub. Niner site says up to 2.4 and the 2.35 HDs are a no-go. Ordered 2.25 Nobby Nics to replace them. Now to wait...

    Fork is a Rock Shox SID RCT3.

    Nobby Nics are good to go. Stem arrived so the fork is now cut and installed (scariest part thus far). Also just got the XT brakes with rotors (180 front and 160 rear). Waiting for the handlebar to install (come on CC!!).

    Good to hear. Just got a pair of knobby nics mounted to Stan's Arch EX rims for my EMD build. Got any pics of the build?

    Ready for brakes. Big note: need adapters! Needed to order adapters for the brakes. Front brake needed an adapter due to larger rotors (post-to-post) and rear brake needs an ISO to Post adapter.

    Yeah, you need a 20 mm adapter for 180 mm rotors in the front. Build looks similar to mine except I have a White Reba RLT fork. I really like the Nobby Nics setup tubeless.

    Niner EMD 9 Build-imageuploadedbytapatalk-21369426572.454995.jpg Finished it! Couldn't take it any longer and went ahead and ordered the renaming parts. Decked out in XX1 and XT brakes and pedals.
