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.
My beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my 2014 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team bike
Welcome to Bike Forums.
The folks in the Bicycle Mechanics forum can give you lots of help.
Good luck with the project. Post some pics when its complete.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
