    Total n00b here.

    Hey,I'm looking at buying this frame,crank,headset,derailer and pedals from this guy for $75.I've never really biked before,and this seems like a good deal too me,but I just want some people who actually know what there talking(typing,actually) about to clarify this for me .



    So do you think this is a good deal,or it would be more cost effective to buy a new bike after buying wheels,a fork handle bars brakes ect.

    Thanks

    well if you want to build a bike based around that frame, sure. Just make sure you actually build a bike, don't just stockpile parts.

    I think you'd be waaaaay better off just buying a bike outright. Especially if you are a total noob. It isn't cheap to build up a bike buying parts. Far cheaper just to buy a complete bike, again, especially if you are new to biking, nevermind building up a bike.
