A new Mountain Bike Build
#1
Well I got the itch for building my self a mountain bike a few days ago. Well today I had to order this frame I think this is going to be a fun build I have built a few bikes in my time but never have done a mountain bike its not going to be a cheap build thats for sure this time around its going to get the high end parts for the most. Looks like it will run me a little over 1600.00 to build it. My old Schwinn mountain bike is fun to ride but I want a good on that I can do a lot more with. The frame is the cheap part of the build lol. Her is a little pic of what the frame looks like. It comes in two color red or black I am going for the Red one with a black front fork. And its got to have a Brooks B17 Saddle on it too. I am also thinking going with clipless pedals form Shimano the ones I want cost to much lol but I will still get them and just the other day I said I did not like shimano shoes oh well here I go again and they cost to much too but what the heck life is to short to not have a little fun once in a while. I know I know you all want to know when will this bike be done well I will let you know when I find out my self its not going to be any time soon thats for sure I just order the frame only for now maybe by the end of the year I will have all the parts so I can build it in the winter of 2010 Oct.10 would be a good day to start it lol My B Day :-)
My dad always told me a Sledge a matic can fix any thing.
