Stock build vs my build. Worth it? (big block)
Im getting ready to start my build on an All City Big Block but I'm not sure my build is worth the "premium" over the stock complete. The final price is calculate based on a price search. I'll be snooping for bargains when it comes time to buy.
My build will be as follows:
Frame- AC BB-
Wheels- H Plus Formula
Bottom Bracket- Either Campy or Sugino- something under $100
Headset- FSA or IRD
Tires- gatorskin probably or randoneurs from vittoria
Saddle- Specialized Romin (or carry over my Turbo)
Seatpost- Thomson Elite
handle bars, pedals, chain, brakes etc. will be carried over from my parts bin initially until i get around to replacing them.
This Build comes to around $1200-$1400 Vs the complete for $925
the stock build is All-City Cycles Big Block
Im open to suggested replacement parts.
I've never made a parts list thread before so go easy on me if I've left anything out
