I got a I'd like to say '99 Gary Fisher race frame, and I want to build a Race bike. Im looking for a cheap 3pc. crank, a decent set of sealed bearing rim(3/8 axle), a racing fork(white), Handle bars(white), Stem , a sealed headset, and a 30 tooth chainring. I got about $150 budget, what can I get?
Why are you asking us? Go log onto ebay and see for yourself.

build up some Odyssey race wheels with the race cassete and the vandero hubs...as for the white bars and fork...Odyssey has a white race fork and some white bars called the milks and i think the civillians come in white too...30 tooth chainwheel, Profile, cheap cranks...used Profiles...and for the headset...get the Dia-tech aluminuim one...or a King for racing....
wait opps.....you only have $150....
Odyssey bars- $49ish
Odyssey race fork- $84ish
Used Profiles- $find your own price new ones are like $140ish
Dia-tech headset- $30ish King is $115
Profile chainwheel- $30ishy
Odyssey race cassete hub - $80ish dont forget rims and spokes and nipples...(wheel nipples)
Odyssey vandero hub- $40something for the hub....$114ish for the complete wheel.
Looks like he's better off with a unicycle.

i was looking at this flatland article in Ride BMX and there was a really cool idea that it said some flatlanders use....you make like a "front end"...basically put the stem on the fork WITHOUT the frame...and then the bars on..then the wheel and two pegs...and now you have a weird bike thing that flatlanders use to practice...or somthing along those lines...

If I were to ride a unicycle, I would crack my head on the pavement and wind up dead.
