Preparing for the new frame



Lynskey R480

Hello everyone,

I am currently preparing for the assembly of a new frame and looking for relevant knowledge online every day. I have to say that Lynskey's shopping experience and after-sales service are very good.

Although I don't have any experience in installing bicycles,
But I have already purchased some tools.

congrats!

You have a good tool collection, the torque wrench is a biggie in my opinion. Very important tool!

Its not hard to build a bike, some thinks take skill but its not out of reach. I can promise you that if you can build your bike you will have a very good understanding of bike mechanics and won't need a service shop very often. A good deal!

Thank you, your reply gave me a lot of encouragement.

This is the bb cups that were removed from the other frame. Because there is no experience, there are scratches, and I will use a piece of paper pad later.

Just don't force anything and you will be fine. Grease is your friend too.

seriously doing your own build you will learn so much, some the hard way and some not but you will learn.

Kudos to you for taking on the build challenge! I am in the process of rebuilding an early 90s steel frame I have owned since it was new. This is my first build of a bike, also. B F members have been quite generous with advice and suggestions. Enjoy and good building to you.

I will install a few parts today.
The crankset is the part that applies the maximum torque and needs 42-60Nm, I set 55.

Starting with a simple installation, I think that the installation and commissioning of the shifting line is the most difficult.

Simply put, the perfect choice of components for any bicycle! Working with jewelry can become habit forming.

Brakes and shifting the outer tube can't be used wrong, I need to buy another outer tube.

The metal inner tube is exposed for a long time, and the rain will make it rust.

Very nice looking.
I live seeing the Campy group. I work with Shimano exclusively so it is a new experience.
I love assembling bikes. I put a new crankset and shifters on our tandem this past weekend. Restrung all of the cables too. Waiting on a cassette and new chain which arrives today to get it on a road trial this afternoon.

I have completed all the installations and the final commissioning is done at the bike shop.
I spent 3 hours installing the cable and the two outer tubes were damaged.

Re-adjust the length of the front brake line.
