new bike vs building up a frame
My latest dillema is whether to just buy a complete Jamis Aurora (or comparable) or pick up a frameset and build it up myself. i know building it up will probably be more expensive in the long run, but i was thinking that it may be be quite the learning experince, blah blah blah. i have never built up a bike before, so it is probably a can or worms that need not be opened, but like in that movie:
Carla Jean Moss: And what are you going to do?
Llewelyn Moss: I'm fixin' to do something dumber than hell, but I'm going anyways.
Any suggestions, like talking me out of it. i was thinkin of building up a Surly frameset, BTW. Thanks as always. Ashe.
