Alright first post here. I'm looking to build from the ground up starting with a niner wfo 9 frame.馃榾 I'm gonna copy and paste a whole bunch of stuff when it comes to parts. Let me know what's good and bad and what can be improved on while keeping the price down. The one thing that I'd like to Add is a auto drop seat post.

Thanks for looking!

Looks pretty good to me. If you build it exactly like that I doubt that you'll have regrets. You may want to shop around a bit for parts. Just as an example, the crankset is available for less at Amazon -- or preferably the x9 version is available at Amazon for just about $10 more. Amazon is usually not the cheapest source but they are very reliable.

Have you checked out Niner's headset? Probably cheaper and bound to work unless they re-arranged things for the newer models.

Why not start tubeless from the get go? It won't save you money but is worth every penny. You'll need valves and a bottle of Stan's. Get a tube anyway to deal with on trail flats. Read up on how to set the bead if you don't have access to a compressor.

You'll need brake adapters and grips but you won't need brake wires. Your brakes will arrive assembled and pre-bled.

Good luck and have fun.
