    Figure out what size you need first, then start shopping. Components and parts you need will depend on what you pick up.

    +1 Google is your friend.

    where do you live? I think you might find it hard to built a bike for less than $300

    what is wrong with bike shops? I mean aside from the fact that you are not going to actually buy a bike from them and only want your advice.

    look on your local CL and find a reseller (aka flipper)
