My Niner EMD build

Hey everyone, hope you're all doing well. Just wanted to post my Niner EMD build and look for critiques, comments, or gripes.

Here's how I wanted the build to turn out.



Ordered a large frame online, and began ordering parts. The first wave came in only 2 days after ordering. Crank Brothers Cobalt3 stem and bars, Cobalt1 seat post. As well as the ninely done Portland Design Works clamp-on grips.



Then the frame came in a few days later. The red pops in direct sunlight, much more than any picture I could get.







Then on a Friday I just happened to take off work for a me day The groupset, wheels, tires, saddle, brakes, headset, ferrules, cable ends, and new repair stand showed up. It truly felt like Christmas.

I set the headset and crown race myself using improvised tools. Got everything set up minus the brakes and fork. I don't have the technical know-how or tools to shorten hydraulic brake lines, and didn't have a pump that would fit the Schrader valve on the fork. So off to the lbs she went. Ignore the road pedals, just needed to slap something on there for a light ride down the street.





The day of the maiden voyage. The lbs had Candy3 pedals in red, so I had to put those on there.





She rode like a dream, much more responsive than my Felt Nine. Here's the final tally on the build if anyone is interested.

Wow, that's a great looking bike.
Where do you go in that area, for a good ride? I visit the folks in Jax once a month or so...
