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?

build up some Odyssey race wheels with the race cassete and the vandero hubs...as for the white bars and fork...Odyssey has a white race fork and some white bars called the milks and i think the civillians come in white too...30 tooth chainwheel, Profile, cheap cranks...used Profiles...and for the headset...get the Dia-tech aluminuim one...or a King for racing....




wait opps.....you only have $150....

well
Odyssey bars- $49ish
Odyssey race fork- $84ish
Used Profiles- $find your own price new ones are like $140ish
Dia-tech headset- $30ish King is $115
Profile chainwheel- $30ishy
Odyssey race cassete hub - $80ish dont forget rims and spokes and nipples...(wheel nipples)

Odyssey vandero hub- $40something for the hub....$114ish for the complete wheel.

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.
