I've NEVER built a bike before and have no idea where to start first, I just want to make sure I do everything correctly. Better safe than sorry right?
This is where she's currently at..
Other than the obvious (can't size chain without wheel installed) there is no particular required order, and no difference between building a bike and installing/adjusting the individual components. If you have adjusted bearings, installed bars/stem, trued wheels, etc. then you just do the same things. If you have not done those things before a forum thread is not going to do it. Try Sheldon's or Park's site for each part of the build.
There's no such thing as a routine repair.
Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.
If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.
Please take the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
