NINER TECHNOLOGY

For every model, whether it's their lightest cross country hardtail or the burliest full suspension bike, Niner considers how each angle or length will interact with big wheels to affect the finished build.

View Details >

Niner believes that your alloy bike should incorporate all of the same high end features and technologies as any top of the line carbon bike. Niner uses the most current alloy shaping technology.

View Details >

The basic concept of the larger diameter is simple: it will keep your wheels on top of oncoming obstacles. Rather than riding IN the terrain, you'll be riding ABOVE it, gaining more control and stability on even the roughest trails.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Niner EMD 9 Frame

The E.M.D. 9 may be the least expensive frame in the Niner lineup but it benefits from the same design process and expectations that Niner requires from every Niner frame. Newly redesigned to integrate custom hydroformed tubing and a tapered headtube, the E.M.D. 9 is a worthy little brother to the Air 9.

Everything bearing the Niner logo has been thought through from top to bottom and the E.M.D. 9 is no exception. Niner has poured their heart and soul into this frame, as much as any other, and they've created a fun, fast, comfortable ride that still embodies what it means to be a Niner.

Great Priced Frame but.... - Apr 16, 2014

1 2 3
3 out of 5 stars
SOUTH HADLEY, MA

Here is the good and bad: Geometry is spot on. This frame really works well for someone with longer legs/arms. Frame gives a very stable riding platform compared to others I've ridden, yet it's still quick in the thick stuff (I ride in New England where the woods are always tight). Bad = Cable routing is horrible. The brake cable holders on the top tube were cutting my knee. I contacted Niner, but they really didn't have much to say about it. I used a die grinder and cut it off. This helped and saved my knees, but once in awhile, I still get bitten from the front cable holders. Why the heck did they put these mounts on the SIDE of the top tube? I love the bike, love the handling, but the cable/brake hose mounts are a concern.
