The EMD 9 (Eat My Dust) might be the most affordable 29r frame available, but that doesn't mean it's not a performance-proven, race-ready steed! Niner started with a clean slate, choosing 7005 tubing then adding the same s-bend curves as the Air 9. This simple yet elegant design feature allows for some vertical rear wheel compliance, while maintaining drive train rigidity and efficiency. In other words it's supple and fast! To complete the frame it is then finished with same level of detail you have come to expect from Niner, including the stainless steel head badge and a beautiful finish. The head tube and bottom bracket are reamed and faced, the BB threads are chased and the disc brake mount tabs are faced as well. Niner poured their heart and soul into this frame, as much as any other, and created a fun, fast and comfortable ride just for you.
The Niner EMD 9 3 Star XT build is outfitted with the latest Shimano XT 2x10 drivetrain and brake system. XT is Shimano's second tier group set and is an absolutely great option for value conscious riders who demand high performing components. With XT, shifting is smooth and worry free, braking is responsive and powerful, and the smile on your face is a mile wide. The EMD 9 3 Star rolls atop a study set of Niner Alloy XC wheels wrapped in high performance rubber from Schwalbe (Rapid Rob EVO 2.4 up front and Racing Ralph EVO 2.25 in the back). Front end suspension duties are dialed and plush through Fox 32 Float CTD O/C Evolution with 100mm of travel and 15mm axle for more torsional stiffness. Niner completes the build with a viable mix of Niner branded components in the cockpit.
If you’ve made the budget cuts and kept an eye on the savings account, you deserve a new machine with the best technical features that subtly drapes substance over style. Now this isn’t to say the EMD 9 isn’t a looker, however you know it’s the engine that counts. Fun, fast, comfortable, the EMD 9 3 Star is truly Niner.
