I've ridden on and off for a while and I finally decided to get my self a shiny new bike. The problem is, there are some preconfigured bikes that seem pretty good, but i'm wondering if I can get something a little better for the same price if I buy the parts and build it myself.
I'm looking at a price range of $2000~$2500 CDN for a bike, so would building my own bike be benificial in this case? What if I just spend $1000?
I'll be typically riding in city, but i'd like to eventually do some moderate off road riding as well, nothing too extreme though.
