I've been looking for a new bike the past few weeks, and in the process I realized how little i know about them. So I figured, what better way to learn than to build one myself? in 9/10 of the reviews I read they say to swap out stock parts anyway, i might as well just start from scratch and save some money in the mean time.
so my question is, are there any websites out there for someone like me who wants to try this but doesnt know much besides that bikes have wheels & pedals? aka telling me what parts i need for a bike that moves, what parts i dont need but might want, what tools i need and how to put it all together.
I'm planning on making a mountain bike btw. I have yet to decide on if it will be hardtail or fs, so a guide that talks about how to build both would be a super plus, but as far as I can see on search engines such guides dont exist in the first place. ug.
thanks for the help
