So I should get white wall with a black stripe for the tires right so they last longer if i'm going colored tires.
I have an idea of where all this will go lol, but like I said, I'm such a newbie.
So if i buy a wheelset, I just need the cog/freewheel + tires + tubes and the wheels are basically done.
Frame, fork, headset, seat, seatpost, stem, bars cover the guts of the bike.
Crankset, bottom bracket, pedals, chain covers the transmission if you will.
Brake caliper, cable, housing, lever covers the braking.
Edited: straps/cages for your feet. I dig.
Am i about right on the wheel / frame requirements for someone about my height/weight.
36 spoke (3 cross for strength), around 59-61 on the frame, probably 120mm width on the wheels for the frame in back, and 100mm in front? or both 120mm.
