    I've never paid a dime for assembly I did myself.

    The parts are what get ya. And they're gonna be more than $100.

    Dumpster dive, cannibalize 10-20 bikes, use what's "good," spend $100 on spokey-dokeys. Lots of spokey-dokeys.

    Spare parts and this. Otherwise it's not going to happen.

    easy to do, but you'll have to use used parts...i built one for under $100 a few years ago by:

    1. Picking up a almost new frame for free at my lbs (came with chain ring, chain, crank, peddles)...girl had her bike stripped one night and the lbs gave her a trade in allowance on a new bike $0

    2. used seat post and seat, $5

    3. used Shimano SIS RD $5

    4. used wheel set with 8 spd cog set, with very used tires $25

    5. used shimano RD $5

    6. used integrated shifters/brake levers $30

    7. new brake pads $10

    8. new cables $9

    9. used stem, handlebar, grips $15

    didn't look too bad because of the newer frame, its still being used by one of people at our office...she added a carrier, lights, and bell so she can commute

    IMHO, it would probably make more sence finding a bike at a yard sale.
