One of my goals since retiring is to build a bike. In preparation, I have been doing my own maintenance and repairing bikes for neighbors and friends, as well as rehabbing a few dump bikes.
I need some advice on how to get started. Do I just buy a frame and then piecemeal the various components?
I am leaning toward a Salsa Caseroll and am wondering if the best way to start is with a kit if such a thing exists.
Any guidance and/or direction is much appreciated. I know several of you have done builds from the ground up, I'm looking to tap some of that experience and knowledge.
