    Building a Race bike...

    I got a I'd like to say '99 Gary Fisher race frame, and I want to build a Race bike. Im looking for a cheap 3pc. crank, a decent set of sealed bearing rim(3/8 axle), a racing fork(white), Handle bars(white), Stem , a sealed headset, and a 30 tooth chainring. I got about $150 budget, what can I get?

    haha ya,


    i was looking at this flatland article in Ride BMX and there was a really cool idea that it said some flatlanders use....you make like a "front end"...basically put the stem on the fork WITHOUT the frame...and then the bars on..then the wheel and two pegs...and now you have a weird bike thing that flatlanders use to practice...or somthing along those lines...

    If I were to ride a unicycle, I would crack my head on the pavement and wind up dead.

    He's joking. But just in case, wear your helmet.
