Hi

Super newbie here from Central Florida. I have been looking to buy a used road bike to race in some local sprints (mini-triathlons). I have found a few nice bikes but they keep selling right before I make the call or get an email back from the seller. I'm thinking about building my own bike but have no idea where to start!

I am a certified welder and machinist and have built/raced cars for years. So i do have mechanical know how and general sense when it comes to building things. Expect a lot of questions from this guy!

Thanks ahead of time!
