Books on building a bike?
I thought about buying a frame and then constructing a road bike from that, getting parts one by one and doing sort of a "work in progress" thing with it. This would also be a great opportunity to learn the true mechanics of a road bike as well as enjoying riding it even more by knowing I built it.
What are some good books/pamphlets/literature out there for this?
Any informal classes offered by bike shops in CO?
Thanks in advance.
My bike's better than me!
Sounds like this book would be pretty on point for you....
While reading a book (or books) will help, there's nothing like hands-on experience and the ability to ask questions. Recommend you sign up for one of the 4 (or 5) day Park Tool Classes offered by various (and hopefully local) bike shops.
