all you got was a frame, cranks,a chian, 2 tires, and some bars and they weigh 35 pounds. holy crap thats gonna be a heavy bike. youll need wheels, pedals, a headset, grips, brakes, unless your crazy, a seat, seatpost seat clamp. just go to albes or something and look around and find out that way.

He said that the frame retails at 100 pounds (about $200 US) in the UK.

The complete bike retails at $200, so, obviously, the frame alone is not going to be worth that much.
