Hello guys! I am here to learn as much as I can so I can build my own road bike someday. Hopefully a year or 2 from now I will have the knowledge of everything to build a bike. I also brought a Road bike maintenance book and hopefully I can use it to break down and tune up my Schwinn hybrid Trailway 700c from Target. What brought me here is that i ask a fellow student a while back if he can help me tune my bike (I offer money). He said that he doesn't deal with "cheap bikes". I don't know what he meant by cheap bikes but $300 for a newbie rider, i think that's a good price. Anyway, I kind of want to make this a hobby and hopefully be able to build one. I am 5'11 and i dont know what frame size cm is perfect for me, i dont even know what they mean by 42cm frame, where do they measure the 42cm at? well hoping to learn everything from you!
