Finally going to get around to building my Niner Air 9 alloy. My first 29er (Tour Divider!!).

Just ordered the following -

Mavic xa elite 29ers. 6 bolt. I wanted to get a boost front and 142 rear but the 'sets' are both or not. The set comes with ust tyres and valves. If I bought the wheels individually, boost front and 142 rear, then the cost is almost double when you also consider the tyres.

Rockshox Reba RL tapered forks. Ugly all black. Couldn't find any coloured ones. Frame comes with a headset.

Bottom B. Race Face pf30 to Shimano 24 converter. I hope this works. This could be a headache.

Going to use my 9 speed xt/slx gears/crank. As they still have plenty of life. Rear wheel is 11 speed. So I assume it will be okay with the spacers. A longer chain, as mine is for a 26er.

Cockpit, saddle, post and groupset off my Trek Remedy.

If anyone sees any issues or mistakes, except spelling, would be glad for the input.
