As some of you know I have done my first build from the frame up recently. I have been riding with a bike club for a bit more than a year and the urge to upgrade hit me. I planned on buying a new Bike when I had saved enough and they came on sale when I got the chance to pick up a Lapierre Xlite frame and Carbon Fork. I had the advantage of knowing three or four good friends that are very good at building bikes and they took me step by step through the process. I now know how it is done and realize I now need to start investing in tools. With access to my friends spare parts bins, going to blowout sales and a few online site I think I got it pretty close. All I need now is a new pair of road shoes so I can mount my speed plays and Iím in business. Anyway here is the parts list.
Lapierre xLite frame.
Aero carbon Fork and new Head set

I can now put my old parts back on my Jamis.
