I am not very experienced with bike mechanics
but now I want to build my own touring bike,
not really build it myself but to choose my own unique
favourite parts and when I have all the parts I'll go
to the LBS and have it assembled there.
My problem is this, I'm not sure about what fits what.
Like I posted earlier about the Vbrakes and the V-compatible
levers (the Dia-compe 287)- thanks for your help there.
I want to build a tourer, the frame will be either the Fuji-touring
frame or the Jamis-Aurora or the Cannondale touring, I'll see what
I can get and for how much.next think is the crankset.
What I need is a good crankset with 48-36-24t chainrings ,
and as I understand, this size is not available with shimano's.
Any suggestions for a good crankset with these sizes of chainrings ?
Ok now, let's say that I have the crankset,do I have to buy a BB of the same manufacturer as the crankset ? what are my options here ?
And after having that solved, how would I know if that particular
BB fits the frame I chose.
Do all BBs fit all frames ?
Ok there are many more questions but this is enough for a starter.
If you have read this far, I thank you already and if you can share
any of your related knowledge I'd be even more grateful.
