Build me a bike with $3200 (there are rules)

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I never said everyone does. It was just an observation. As I've stated, I don't care what you ride. Ride what you want. I'm not calling anyone out here, at all.

Stop it already and let the guy have his thread.

it was a harmless, one sentence observation.

Chill out. I'm not responding again because this poor guy's thread doesn't need to be any more off track.

OP, my apologies for helping to screw up your thread.

As long as you don't plan on shifting the front derailleur, this is a great idea.

that bd ti moto w/ultegra for 2k is a hell of a deal. and it leaves all sorts of cash left over. Id go carbon for that budget though.

Sorry, if you race, no bike is worth building that costs $3200 that isn't carbon. Trick question. Shoot, the frame I would want cost more than that alone.

$3200 buys you a Scott Addict R2 with 6700.

With that budget you could get a nice EM, Somec or any other really well finished steel bike (not raleigh or any other junk please), even a used pegoretti or vanilla, and then maybe dress it with campy 11 how it deserves.
