Niner EMD 9 1 Star Deore Bike

Niner EMD 9 1 Star Build

The EMD 9 (Eat My Dust) might be the most affordable Niner package available, but it’s nothing short of a willing and able bike that’s ready to unlock the door to the Niner lifestyle. Niner started 2015 with a clean slate, choosing hydroformed 7005 aluminum tubing versus the 6000-series alloy of past. This simple yet elegant design upgrade allows for some vertical rear wheel compliance, while maintaining drivetrain rigidity and efficiency for both a faster and suppler ride. Additionally, 2015’s EMD 9 sees routing for a stealth dropper post.

The frame it is then completed with same level of detail you have come to expect from Niner, including the tapered headtube, stainless steel head badge, and lust-worthy finish. The headtube, disc brake mount tabs and bottom bracket are all reamed and faced to ensure that not even a speck of paint overspray will hinder the ride quality. Niner poured their heart and soul into this frame, as much as any other, and created a fun, fast and comfortable ride anyone.

The Niner EMD 9 Deore Bike features an impressive component spec that’s ready to deliver year-round fun. RockShox is well known within the industry for producing high end suspension components that are easy to setup and use. Therefore, it was only logical that Niner chose to mount a RockShox suspension fork to this XC trail-horse. The RockShox Recon Silver Solo Air fork features 100mm of smooth, plush suspension travel that’ll eat up the small bumps before they can slow you down. The 15mm axle and tapered steerer tube ensure the front end remains stiff, helping to maintain precise steering winding single track and tight hairpins.

The Shimano Deore drivetrain benefits from trickle-down technology, offering top-tier technology features at a friendlier price point. From the M610 trigger shifters all the way to the M615 rear derailleur, the Shimano Deore 10 speed drivetrain provides smooth, accurate, and fast shifting. Niner’s house-branded alloy wheels are sturdily-built to take a beating without anchoring you down, while its signature alloy cockpit arrangement rounds out the build, delivering a perfect blend of quality, strength, and performance.

Whether you want to hit the trail for the first time, add a sweet mountain bike to your collection of toys, or throw a leg over Niner’s brilliance for as little green as possible, the Niner EMD 9 is a carefully procured, trail-ready bike build that realizes performance and is easy on the wallet.

1 Star Niner EMD 9
The reason I chose to review this product had more to do with my experience with JensonUSA than the bike itself. Bike was shipped promptly, arrived VERY WELL packed. It went together quickly and easily and I didn't have to turn any adjustment screws anywhere other than sliding the seat back a bit on its rails (it was already level)...derailleurs and brakes were spot on.

Didn't have to call Customer Service, but if their build/packing is indicative of their attention to detail, I bet it's phenomenal as well!

Love the bike...and the build from Jenson was outstanding! Great shipping and very quick turnaround-These guys really do a great job. Im a tweener on size, so i sized up from a large to an x-large and couldn't be happier. This bike is great on the trail, and is surprisingly agile on the tight single track-go get one

Can this bike run a stealth dropper post?
Robby on May 30, 2016
Does this bike come with the nine line 2.0 tires pictured or the schwolbe racing Ralph 2.25 listed in the specs?
Shawn E on Apr 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The bike I ordered came with the wtb ninelines. The spec on the web said racing Ralph's. The ninelines are also wirebead
Can this bike run a single speed?
A shopper on Jan 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can! I bought this bike for my wife and this week actually I just converted it to a single speed in the front and 11 speed cassette. If you want to go single in the rear then Jenson sells this cog for niner single conversions You'll probably need spacers to center the cog. Hope it helps
