    Fork $229
    Headset $40
    Stem $61
    Bars $25
    Brakes $195
    Grips $20

    Guide Ring $29
    Chain $20

    Pedals $cHriStMaS
    Tires $54
    Tubes $5
    RD $60
    Shifter $came from another bike


    So...about $1600 (give or take)
    But everything either came from a previous build or I sold a previous component to cover the cost.

    Built up my own FS (newest bike, ridden the most), about $2700 cash, but that was for components that were totally my preference.

    There's a gap between $500 and $1K....

    For my current trail bike let's see....

    $20 KHS frame
    $35 stem/bar
    $5 grips
    $60 fork
    $15 headset
    $35 tires
    $22 seatpost
    $10 seat
    $90 wheelset
    $25 cranks


    $482 total

    gripshifts and derailers stolen from my Mongoose, which has XCPro thumbshifters now. Still need to get a back brake on, hopefully that won't be too much.

    The Mongoose still gets ridden a lot, has Michellin Country Rocks on it for street riding.

    I got it for $600. It was a 1996 model I got in 1997.

    For the record: I am now under $0.25/km on the mountain bike I ride the most.

    I'm glad this was an anonymous poll.

    The roadbike doesn't count- this is the MTB forum.
