I got in on the BD CF Bottechia Frameset GB. So I am doing my first build. I'm getting the IS2 headset installed by my LBS but I'll be doing the rest on my own.
Any tips or tricks or things to watch out for when assembling the bike?
The main thing I'll be worried about are the length of the chain and installing the cables for the brakes and gears. Any special things tolook out for those?
Oh yeah... since the steerer tube is aluminum can I use a pipe cutter to cut it down to size or should I also utilize the LBS for this?
I have a Park Tools book and website to help me as well. And of course your help!
Thanks in advance! I should have all the parts in a week or so. So I hope to get started in a couple of weeks. Or sooner if I get impatient! hehe!
