    Good bike building site(s)?

    I don't know how many people here have used pcpartpicker.com before, but is there a site like this for bikes? Best parts of that site for me are:
    • part compatibility: if i pick a certain motherboard, only ram that is compatible is listed
    • graph of price over time: for each component i get to see how various online retailers change the price of it over time. that way i know to hold off till black friday to get certain parts
    • list of basically every part: if i wanted a hard drive in my comp, i get a list of just about every manufacturer


    I'm not too savvy on bike building sites, but I'm sure there's a slick one out there. Any suggestions?

    Go ask your local bike shop then buy the parts from MerlinCycles or pbk.

    This site??? Post what frame you are building and plenty of people here can tell you what you need

    But...as long as you have specs on frame (bottom bracket size and standard, headset size, etc) you should be able to figure it out

    It doesn't have everything you want, but Wrench Science: Custom Bicycle Builder Online - Road, Mountain, Cyclocross, Track Parts might be the best out there.

    There is a lot of good information on the Sheldon Brown website. I often add the name "Sheldon Brown" to any parts compatibility searches.
