Building a Bike
hey everyone so I'm posting because I'm curious about building a bike. i need a downhill bike for relatively cheap. I've been biking for a while now but I've been using a cheap Trek i've had for a while now and it is time for an upgrade.
the questions i have are:
What tools do i need to build a bike?
What are all of the parts i am going to need to buy?
What kind of Paint do you use for a bike frame?
is there somewhere i can see how to assemble my bike online?
Is it really worth building a bike over buying one assembled?
What recommendations do you have for parts for a 6'2'' 200 lb. beginner/intermediate college student not looking to spend an arm and a leg?
any help would be appreciated.
