Hey guys. I've been lurking for the forums for a few weeks now. I've dug up tons of excellent info in the forums and wanted to thank you all for that.
But there is one topic I haven't been able to find a lot of info on......building your own tri bike. As a mechanical engineer, I enjoy taking apart (read destroying) mechanical objects of all sorts. However, I haven't found many DIY posts. Also, i haven't found much info that would point a newbie in the right direction regarding what types of frame/components to look for/compare.
So I've got 2 questions:
- Where can I find decent DIY posts/manuals/walkthroughs on tri bike building?
- What are some good sources that compare/contrast frames and components? Maybe something that could guide a newb's parts list during his first bike build?
I'm 6'2" and 190 lbs if that helps at all. Thanks for the help, it's greatly appreciated.
