So this will be my first complete bike build ever. To this point the most I've done is fix up a couple of bikes I've bought/saved from the garbage. Here are some pictures of the frame I picked up today. The paint isn't as nice as the guy implied in the add, but it's about perfect for what I want. A nice riding bike that doesn't look bad, but one I can actually ride and put in a bike rack without being worried about the paint. I'm gonna clean it up and do some touch-ups, but I'm happy with the condition.
These are the other parts I have for the bike so far. I also have a pair of ergo bars. I don't think I can use that FD, though. That's a braze on only style, correct? And I have a stem coming from bigbossman.
I'm still in need of brake calipers, a saddle, pedals, cable stops, and wheels. I have a pair of basic Dia-Compe brake calipers that I might use temporarily, but I think they're the most basic kind and in any case don't have the stopping power I want. I also saw a pair that had the cables attach on the opposite side as normal, and I'd like to try to find those so that I can route my front brake to the right side lever. I think I Might try to find some Campagnolo cable stops and derailleur cable guides for no other reason than to match the Campagnolo dropouts. I have to look into those more, though. For the wheels, I'm thinking of tackling my first wheel build. I want to try something a bit different that I saw online on a wheel building site, so if anyone knows of an aluminum 40spoke 700c rim and/or hub please let me know.
