    2012 Niner EMD Single speed build

    Here are a few pics of my 2012 EMD which I converted to SS. Right now I have it down to 21.10lbs.

    Thanks jnails!! I could drop a bit more weight if I went to carbon cranks and switched to a Rockshox Reba or Sid fork. I think I will keep it as is though and save the money for a geared carbon Niner Air 9.

    Nice EMD!

    Do you prefer that setup over the EBB? I have heard the EBBs from Niner can be tricky.

    Ya know I have never used Niner’s EBB. I am not against it but I picked up the EMD because it was cheep!!! I was going to buy the One 9 but I decided to put the extra cash into a good set of wheels instead. I think I made a wise choice. The set up I have on this bike works very well though. So I don’t see the need to get a EEB.

    Tensioners are underrated. I hate the tensioner (on a $99 Access Frame), but it works better than the other bikes EBB ($800 SIR 9). Now when I tighten set screws on EBB there is 1/32" gap between Bottom bracket and Barrel. I wish I had your NINER instead of My NINER. Nice build!

    Great looking build! I'm building up a SS '11 EMD, going to use a tensioner as well. Seems to take a lot of the hassle out of messing with a magic gear. How are you liking the Recon? I'm thinking of either going that direction or rigid.

    I like it. It seams to work well and you can’t argue with the price. I would have gone w/ a Reba but I had this fork already. I took the fork off my 2011 Scott Scale Elite.

    You can't argue with the price. I'm not too worried about the extra .8 lbs when it's coming in a couple hundred dollars less than the Reba.

    That is a really smart build. I didn't even know tensioners existed. What brand is it and how much! Again, SWEET bike

    Niner is the brand. Google jensonusa for a good deal on last years frame.

    Super sweet! Looking real hard at the 2011 EMD's Jenson's got on sale but seeing your 2012 gives me pause. Love that color and how the Niner logo stands out.

    But dude, lose the crap you've got strapped to the seat post. Half kidding but stuff like that and seat bags just ruin the look of a bike. That's what Camelbaks are made for.

    BTW, totally agree with your choice of the Recon. Those Reba's are way expensive and unless you're a pro rider bet it'd be hard to tell much difference. Of course pop for a Niner Carbon fork and you'll be sub 20lbs.

    Cut out some of them spokes and you're bike is sub 20lbs and you'd look cool with a camelback.
