So I stumbled onto a brand new Masi frame for $180 on ebay that I am looking to build up. http://www.ebay.com/itm/200795178773...84.m1439.l2649
I actually purchased this bike atleast a month ago and have been sitting on it since. I noticed that the paint is chipped on the seat tube. Can I just use some white nail polish or something to seal it up?
The frame came with the headset and seat clamp already so I wont be needing those.
Here's what I've been looking at so far
Wheelset: My lbs has orange velocity deep v's w/ some no name highflange hubs. He's including tires with this wheel set for $250. Jump on them? or get some from Velomine?
Saddle: Charge spoon
Handle bars: Reusing some old drops that I have
Cranks: Ird defiant? I like the chrome look to them. Open to suggestions. Also what arm length? 172.5?
Seatpost: Not sure yet
Bottombracket: Need help w/ this one
Stem: Not sure on this either. I know these can be somewhat personal because of fit reasons.
Brakes: Probably just a Tektro front brake.
Pedals: I was looking at the mks urban ones at retrogression. Will get some straps as well.
Chain: Just some 1/8 chain doesn't have to be anything special. I may have a used one here that I can use.
I think that's just about everything. I was mainly confused on which bottom bracket to get. The built Masi Speciale Uno comes with an FSA square taper BB. I could just get this, but since I am building this piece by piece I could get a better BB? Let me know what you guys think on that wheelset deal at my LBS.
