Hello all, first off, I am new to these forums. Hello all. I signed registered for the forums because I have been cycling and have multiple questions regarding building a bike. I am a novice with a 93' Ross 10 speed in mediocre shape. I rode the 30 mile Bike MS NYC with two friends and realized the old sluggish bike was not cutting it. I am not 100% in the exact setting I want, but have a rough idea. I decided to look for a newer bike and saw a frame and parts for sale in my size (58cm).
Parts included in lot:
-Brand New Road Bike Carbon Frame (58cm Frame Size)
-700c Wheel Size
-580mm Center Of Steer Tube to Center Of Seat Tube
-200mm Steer Tube
-68mm Bottom Bracket Width
-1 1/8 HeadSet
-34.9 Seat Clamp
-31.6 Seat Post
-2 lbs 7.3 oz Frame Weight
-Shimano 105 Cranks 175mm Double 53-39 Chainrings
-Carbon ITM Road Bars 44cm
-Sram Hollow Tech Road Chain
-Shimano Gear And Brake Cables
-Road Calipers Brakes Pads Included
-Specialized BodyGlove Seat
-Specialized Road Stem 120mm
Does anyone have a rough estimate of the value of those parts all together listed above? After looking at this list, I figure l would need wheelset (tires/tubes), cassette, deraillers, brake levers/shifters and pedals. Am I missing anything?
I am contemplating buying the lot of frame/forks and parts and building the bike. Is this an impossible task for a novice who has never built a road bike? Will the remaining parts needed be very costly? (a Shimano 105 cassette, derailer, so on.)
I know it is a lot of information and questions, but any information would be greatly appreciated.
I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon
Welcome to BikeForums.
This is the Introductions forum.
You'll get more replies if you ask your question in the Road Cycling or General Cycling forum. If you tell them what the selling price is where you saw the for sale listing, they'll be able to tell you if it's a good deal or not. Do you know the manufacturer of the frame?
