I must leave

Sorry folks. After getting the frame, selling my other bike and checking out the cost of parts and what not it was much more economically sound for me to get a 9.2.5 already built. Though I still plan on customizing parts of it I would have been paying an extra 200 dollars just to get the things the 9.2.5 already has.

Don’t hate me :(

Put some money down on the 9.2.5 Redline frame last night and the good folks at Cars Bike Shop in Mounds View are going to assist me. Hope fully I can get his done by months end.

Diving Right In

What’s up gang! Well, after deciding to take my Bianchi Milano off of Craigslist and going for building my own fixie the only thing I need to do now is figure out where to start. I found a 925 Redline frame for 200 bucks at my local bike shop and I think I will start from there. After that though I would like to build most everything else from used parts, maybe except for the hub, think i might get a Surly one. Anybody got any pointers for a guy who wants to do this but is not an expert at bike building? Any websites or books you can point me towards?
