I have a couple questions about building a road bike. i currently have a very old Soma (probably late 70's) that i received from my neighbor for free. I really like it but it is good shape for its age. i feel that i need something better. I also have a plain Soma frame (newer that the one i have now, but still old). i would like to build upon this frame and make a semi-decent road bike so i can ride it in college. I know very little about parts fitting on certain frames and such and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions, preferably where to start and what to stay away from. i know that newbs, like myself, can be annoying to experienced members because i know from other forums. If i am in the wrong section, i apologize in advance. Anyway it would be appreciated if someone could guide me into road building success. i am eager to learn more about bikes and how they work. Thanks.
I can put pics in if needed.
