I thought you were Oprah for a second.

And you get a frame ...

I'd pretty much trust anyone who has posted in the "What have you been wrenching on lately" thread.

How about "DIY"? Hanging parts is half the fun.😉
Seriously, if I can do it, anybody can do it.

Wait, having someone else build up a bike for me is a thing? but I like building up my own bikes, not saying I'm any good but I enjoy it and it makes feel manly and mechanical and stuff. It also allows me to use tools which I have paid for an accumulated, but not the hammer, never the hammer.

It's building up a 30yo steel frame, nothing really stands out as one can do it better than another at some point.

bikemig, gugie, rc, etc come to mind I guess. But really I would bet I wouldn't think twice about a few dozen posters on this forum building up a bike of mine.

I don't like bars that are angled high, saddles slammed, brake levers placed high on the bars, or gaps in bar tape.
So I guess I wouldn't want to use anyone that sets bikes up with those things.

With the bike I'd send out needing a cable guide brazed on and new paint and decals I would send it to whoever could handle that.

With that said I've seen so many example of super nice looking bikes I don't remember who did them all.
