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 Hot Tamale 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.

  • Hydroformed alloy tubes
  • Tapered headtube
  • Niner's proven hardtail geometry
  • Optimized for 80 to 100mm suspension forks
  • Disc brake only
  • 73mm Bottom bracket
  • 31.6mm Seatpost
  • 34.9mm Front der, high clamp top pull
  • Replaceable derailleur hanger
  • 135mm QR rear spacing

This is one great looking alloy Niner frame. A carbon Niner post and bar would only add to its appeal. Take a look at our selection of in stock Niner Carbon bars and seatposts here.

I purchased this frame about 8 months ago, and I'm extremely happy I did. First off, the pictures don't do it justice. The red is much deeper, and it looks amazing. I'm consistently getting compliments about it. The decals are nicely done and worth noting. The paint hasnt chipped at all and is holding up very very well. Now to the good stuff. The geometry of this frame works well for me. Its very flickable and powers up hills. The downhills can be sketchy until you get used to it. You have to be on your toes in a downhill section with obstacles, as this bike will challenge your reaction speed. Overall I am very satisfied and Niner has gotten a customer for life.
