Unemployed with a bike!...

Hello and good morning, I am glad to have found this site. I am currently in "between-jobs" (I think that's the PC way of saying unemployed and broke) and with the late spring and upcoming summer here in sunny SF Bay Area, I plan to get back on my bike and do some riding.

I have a Trek 2100 that's about 6 years old. I am thinking I'll buy a nice frame, like a colnago or pinarelli and build up a bike. Kinda a home project to keep me busy. Tips or links to a thread on building a bike up from the frame is appreciate.

c'ya.

The proper term is "currently self-unemployed." Welcome, I spent a bunch of time here when I was self-unemployed for a pro-longed duration... enjoy the forums! As for tips on building up a frame... uh, just type in the parts you're working on into the search and see what comes up... both for recommendations on parts and for installation... or pose a new question... have fun.

What a coincidence! I'm in the same "unemployment" boat as you are. No money, but I am a lot fitter this year. I guess all those folks I see along Foothill and riding the Loop during the day are also "between jobs".
