    New to Bike Building...

    I am trying to build my own bike for the first time. I admit, I don't know a lot about parts. I recently purchased a TREK 1500 SLR (2007) frame w/fork. I have other parts on another bike I want to use if possible. I bought a Shimano Tiagra Road Crankset (FC-4500) 52/39 and have a Shimano Tiagra HG-50 (9 speed) on a 700c wheelset. I want to use all of this on the TREK and need confirmation if I can use them, plus what would be the best, moderate priced derailleur and brake set for this bike.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2014 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team bike
