Build-up sites

Can anyone recommend any sites that detail the build-ups of various bikes?

For instance: Starting a build from the frame up, detailing aftermarket parts that were put on the bike (perhaps even pictures of installation), and then a detailed summary of how each of those parts performed for their intended task (i.e. taking the bike to a race, etc).

I'm looking for one site that handles all manner of bikes, from cruisers to track.

Does anything like this even exist?

WrenchScience.com is the only place I know of. I could waste hours there.

Well, Bikeforums is honestly the most comprehensive site for bike-related knowledge I know of, so if you guys can't find it, I'm sure it doesn't exist. I used to race ATV's years ago, and magazines dedicated to this form of racing always have build up's over several issues, outlining the parts, how to install them, and then how they performed at the track. Pictures always accompanied each update, and I would look over them dozens of times. I would definitely be interested to see this form of "reporting" come over to the cycling world.

I'm thinking of starting a site in this vein; what do you all think? It will start small, but I'd like it to grow into a hub of information for people to show off their builds. I'm thinking it will also have a glossary of how-to's, step by step, with images. Probably a small, site-specific forum as well.
