    Cut brake hoses and bleed if needed.
    Correctly tension your new wheels.
    Convert your wheels to tubeless.
    ^^^ as Muzz says, get the heli tape on.

    I have bought from Biketart and eBay seller convertape in the past.

    Measure up what you need and work out who is the cheapest, both sold good quality tape. If you order a bit more than needed it never goes to waste anyway

    Cyberstalk the shipment by checking the status every 5 minutes... 'Out For Delivery' has to be the 3 most frustrating words I've ever read!

    Got my handlebars, brakes and cables today. Bars, cranks, shifter and front brake are on, rear brake needs the hose shortened. Need to get my wheels back from the shop so I can start setting the drive train up.....

    Not Niner-Specific but the worst/silliest ever for me was waiting for a single brake rotor. I eventually caved and borrowed a 203 from a friend so I could ride the bike but it took a while to finally show up.
