building a bike?
so im thinkin about it, maybe next year. what im thinking about is a commuter with internally geared hub, front hub would i like a generator, disk brakes, drop bars, ridgid fork and mountain bike frame, 26 or 29er not sure yet.
i really enjoy commuting and just riding around town. i have never built a bike before and am new to cycling, and all the terminoligy and jargon
that goes with it, but i believe i have a good mechanical ability.
i dont know if there is really a ? i need to ask yet other than should i do this or leave it up to my LBS. maybe buy a complete and change it fit my needs? i know there is a lot involved and i need to research this and i will learn as i go.
im looking to spend somewhere in the area of $2000 to $3000 or so.
any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.
