Hey guys, I know you get like 15 of these threads a week hopefully mines a bit different. Tried searching and got nothing, but I've read the stickies.
So I quit biking about 5 years ago and now that I'm in college and have some free time and cash I was hoping to get back into it.
I've been looking at danscomp and went down to a local shop today. They have the 2k7 6-pack for 310. Asked af ew of my friends and they said I should go for it.
It's been a while so I just have a few questions. I was wondering if it's cheaper to build your own bike then buy a complete. If so I was wondering if anyone had any parts recommendations, (I'm trying to stay in the price range of the 6-pack) or is it cheaper to get a complete. There's so many new companies since I've been into this I have no idea whats what anymore.
Also when I went to look at the bike it seemed really...small. It's got a 20.5" top tube and considering I haven't biked in so long maybe it's just perspective. I'm like 5'11 and 145.
Also when I rode we rode with no brakes, it was jsut easier and oryg's were kinda new. Is it worth it now to invest in an oryg/gyro or is brake-less still the way to go. can I put one on the 6-pack?
thanks in advance.
