"Eat My Dust"- The E.M.D. 9 should give you all the weaponry you need, so you can turn to your riding buddies and say this with total confidence. The E.M.D. 9 is the newest member of the Niner family, building on our commitment to make the best, most versatile line of 29" wheel mountain bikes in existence.
The E.M.D. 9 started life as a custom butted 7005 series aluminum tubeset built to Niner's specifications. From there, Niner poured their knowledge and passion into every ounce of this frame (and there aren't very many of those ounces to pour over). Chainstays and seatstays received new proprietary bends to increase tire clearance while maintaining heel clearance. Every tube is size specific to insure proper ride quality throughout the size range. The attention to detail that has become synonymous with Niner is present on every bit of this frame. Even though this is a less expensive frame, Niner did not cut any corners with their quality. The E.M.D. 9 features an internally butted head tube and BB shell to shave weight and a reamed and faced head tube and BB to insure proper alignment of headset and bottom bracket cups. The threads on the BB shell have been chased post welding to insure easy BB installation and the disc brake tab has been machined post weld to insure proper disc brake alignment. The E.M.D. 9 is the first frame in our line that will receive Niner's proprietary bent downtube which tested much stronger than using a gusset while still maintaining the clearance necessary for some fork crowns. In addition, the E.M.D. 9 uses their race tested and confidence inspiring Niner geometry which works flawlessly with either an 80mm or 100mm suspension fork, or their truly suspension corrected rigid fork.
At 3.5 lbs. for the frame, the E.M.D. 9 is super light and race worthy. The s-bend rear stays make for a comfy and compliant ride giving the E.M.D. 9 an advantage on all day epics or 24 hour races as well.
