    any suggestions for frames?

    My friend sold me a some of his bike parts for cheap because he crashed and doesn't know anything about bike and just sold them.I however, want an older frame to compliment these parts. Here
    The parts are
    Shimano Dura Ace Brakes front and back
    Shimano Dura Ace front hub with Omega rim. Hub needs new bar
    Shimano Tiagra rear hub with Mavic CXP 22 rim
    Shimano 105 FD
    Shimano Ultegra BD
    Shimano 105 cranks( haven't pulled them from bike yet)
    Front Dura Ace triple brifter
    Shimano Ultegra 8 speed rear
    I'm not sure why it has a Dura Ace and Ultegra.

    I need a decent bike does anyone have any suggestions?
    The 105 FD has this wierd bolt on thing to attach it to the frame, is there a adaptor i can get for it ?

    I also have no clue how to take the brifters off the bars as dumb as that sounds. And if they would work with a 7 speed instead of a 8 speed Because I have a better rear with 7 on it.


    Here are some pictures

    Dura-Ace
    Ultegra

    your friends frame was destroyed? the front derailluer is a "braze on" style but the HANGER from the old frame is still attached. you remove the brifters with an allen wrench (5mm?) inserted into that groove on the outside of the lever. slide it under the hood.

    what kind of frame was your friends bike? as you seem to not know much more about bikes than your friend. OH what is the "BAR" that you need for the rear hub? I would find a bike that has the same kind of BB shell, probably english. just look for a decent double butted Chromoly steel frame that fits you

    Lose the Idea of the 7 speed while your at it. Nothing you got on the junk bike is compatible with the 7 speed. Just for starters.

    Frankly.. you're idea is Ill conceived, you haven't the knowlege or the tools. I'm not judging you, it was you who stated "no clue ". You could e-bay the whole pile of this ... and buy a bike as well as profit some to boot. Or sell it here using the correct protocal. To experiment and learn is one thing but it's all backwards.

    I'd say you should do it. It's a great learning process to build up a bike. Just be very careful to do everything the correct way, and make sure you use the right tools.

    Those shifters are 9-speed, not 8. And they can only be used with a 9 speed rear gear cluster (known as a cassette). Also, the front derailleur requires a frame that has a braze on tab. If it does not, you will need to find a different front derailleur (not really a big deal). Also, I hope you have the barrel adjusters that are part of those brakes.

    As for the frame, find one that fits you, that's the most important. It's really broad considering the best frame is probably one you can get a good deal on, and that completely depends on what comes up for sale and that's random. It also depends on what kind of riding you are going to do, etc. In general if you're going to be doing straight road riding you can't go wrong with 80s or early 90s racing steel.

    Third picture down: see that vertical groove about midway on the rubber hood?

    Stick the right size allen key in that slot, turn counter clockwise, and the band is loosened up so you can slide it off of the bar.

    Front derailleur: yes, unbolt that plate, and get an adaptor for your seat tube diameter; about 12 USD.

    Build up: good luck and have fun! Get something Japanese/American and go to town. Every part you have pictured can be installed on your new to be frame with common household tools.

    Suggestion? How about a Trek 760 or 770? You'd end up with a lightweight hot-rod. Would have to spread the rear dropouts from 126 to 130, but that's not such a big deal.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Any decent or better steel bike would be a nice fit. Put a WTB ad in your local Craigs List. +1 Stick with the 8 speed.

    Things like barrel adjusters can be obtained from thethirdhand.com or similar sources - if your local doesn't have them in a used parts bin. If by "bar" you mean the part you loosen to take off the wheel, it's called a skewer. Also available from any online parts source or the parts bin at your local. However: with these fairly recent make components, much is specific to a particular maker and model. If you're ordering small parts online be sure what you need. Search the forums here and elsewhere online.
