I'm new to bicycles. I started out with a Schwinn Trail Way last November and was pleased with it for a couple of weeks until I took it in for a tune up. I took one look at what my local lbs had in stock and promptly sold the schwinn to purchase a Trek FX 7.1.
I love the FX. It's a great bike, but I'm already looking for an upgrade. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find another FX w/ decent enough components for what I'm looking to pay. I have my eye on the 7.5, but I know I'll get bored with it in six months. So I've settled on upgrading the 7.1 by buying the components I want and having someone put them on for me. I figure I'll get the bike I want since I'm sort of building it myself and learn bike mechanics and componetry while working with the mechanic.
I want to start off by throwing on 105 components for my drive train, new shifters, and later do upgrades to my wheels, seatpost, and handlebar.
I've looked up stuff and done a bit of research, but I figure I better throw this out there for people to comment on before I embark on a rather ridiculous endeavor.
Is the frame I'm looking to build on a good one?
I don't know how to go about this and what components to buy, but I know I'm going to do this.
