(please excuse the silly title.. obviously a bike without components would be cheaper, but more difficult to ride)
I'm attending a charity auction on Saturday, and I'm told some frames and forks will be up for grabs. While I have been shopping complete cyclocross bikes for awhile, this seems like a good opportunity to get some choice gear -- and to end up with a unique ride. Does anyone have a ballpark estimate as to how much more expensive it is to build a bike compared to buying its equivalent? I've been looking at bikes with entry-to-moderate pricing (e.g., Jake the Snake).
