Commuter bike project
Hi all, I've been wanting to build myself a commuter bike but I have a few questions before i start on it.
I'm planning on purchasing a Novara Buzz Frame from a guy locally. yeah i know it might be cheaper and less of a hassle if i just bought the whole bike but i enjoy building it up by myself. Also, i want to build my bike close to this one i saw on CL, http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/bik/3113065758.html
Here are my questions;
1- are the wheel hubs road bike hubs or MTB hubs? any size issues will i come across with regarding with the hubs?
2- Why do most urban bikes come with MTB components instead of road bike components?
3- ... I wish i had more questions but my mind is drawing a blank. lol. if i can think of anything ill ask more. LoL
any help would be greatly appreciated.
