So I've decided to take the plunge and build my Surly LHT myself. I'd really like to give the LBS my business, although since I'm on a pretty tight budget (isn't everyone?), I'm not going to do anything foolish. So I've compiled a list of the various components that I'd like to use and I've included the best prices I could find online. Using this list, I've got a fairly good idea how much everything is going to cost me.
Should I take this list (without the penciled prices, I'm assuming) to my LBS and let them quote me a price? Is this how you guys normally do it? Would they be totally weirded out if I did something like this?
Assuming I do give them this list and they give me a price that's somewhat comparable to my penciled in prices, I fully intend on going through them. I'm keeping in mind that I don't mind paying a slight premium to the local guy...I just don't want to pass up an incredible deal that I might get if I do it myself online.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
