Ok this is my first bike build, but we've all gotta start somewhere right? At the moment I've got a Giant Defy road bike that I'm using for triathlon training at uni, club rides at the weekend and commuting to and from uni. I'm fairly confident on working and repairing my current bike and want to try building this one, so going to the LBS isn't what I'm planning on doing. A few weeks ago I went to the Manchester velodrome and loved the way riding fixed felt. So I bought a Spicer frame; this one: http://spicercycles.com/itemdetails.cfm?id=409.
The frame is sitting in my room now and I want to get it built up as soon as I can. So here come the questions:
It has a 1" fork, so wil this headset be ok? http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...x?ModelID=1827 I then presume I will have to buy the star nut seperatly, will this one suffice? http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/Cycle/7/MP...et/5300005192/
For the chainring and cranks I'm liking this set http://www.dotbike.com/ProductsP1435...%26TRACK%3dDDI. However I haven't got a clue what bottom bracket I need, 68mm with english threads but after that I don't know what to buy. And can anyone recommend a cheaper chainset?
I will have more questions relating to wheelsets and bottom bracket installation, but they can wait for now.
Anyway sorry for the long post and thanks for any help.
