I am thinking about adding another 29er to the stable (yes i know i have issues haha), It will be a ht 1x9 that i want to build/buy pretty light (24-26lb range). The one on top of my list right now is the Niner emd or maybe the air 9 what do you guy's think of it/them ? also another i looked at was the 2011 Sette Razzo which comes with some nice components and a reasonable price.I have some parts laying around but wouldnt mind buying complete if there was a good enough deal. Thanks

Can't hook you up with a deal, but I have a EMD9 set up as a 1x9 and I love it!! It sits at 24.2 lbs and I didn't take any deliberate steps to lighten it up.

I've talked to plenty of people that built up Air9's and were unhappy with them. I know others are happy with theirs, but I've never talked to an unhappy EMD owner!

You're more than welcome to ride it if you want, to see what you think. I'm 5'10 and it's a medium, which fits a range of 5'8" to 6' according to Niner's site.
