i'm wondering if i can get a recumbent frame — preferably short wheel base, front wheel drive — all by itself. or rather, a frame with only the frame-specific parts, and not with the generic components, since i find it's cheaper to build my own bike.
i've decided i'm going to move away from bikes and toward bents. i'd be at the store tomorrow, except i'm low on cash.
i've always built my bikes piecemeal — collecting wheels, brakes, shifters, etc over a few months so i could take advantage of nashbar and the swap bins. it's also better because i can pick and choose what i want to buy.
for my most recent bike, the cost was far less than i would have had to pay for a complete bike.
but i can't seem to find just the frame anywhere online. is this done?
