4130 Frame from ebay...

Hey sorry if their is a thread for this sort of thing already first time amidoinitrite?

anyway i was wondering if anyone has built on one of these suckers? my little brothers bike is soooo bad and he keeps stealing mine so i was looking into some cheap options since he works at walmart (he puts milk in the fridge like a boss) here is the frame any and all information is greatly appreciated!

I'm by no means a bike guru but i sure do read me some sheldon brown and have a half decent tool set.

How much money are you going to save over a BikesDirect bike once it's set up, if any at all?

Buy from bikesdirect. If you built it up using only the cheapest components, you still would spend more then a BD bike, and it would be lower quality. Also that is only drilled for a rear brake. Why someone would only drill for a rear I do not know..

Beware of absurd shipping costs to Canada, if they'll ship at all. I would contact BD and ask them.

Well that complicates buying from BD. I understand they only ship to the US. You could get it shipped to a UPS in Sumas then carry it over yourself, or something like that.

Oh I didn't realize a complete bike is what you were after. If you need cheap Crosslake sales has some cheap completes on ebay, and there are the "damaged" bd bikes that pop up. I mean if you want to save money because your brother stocks milk shelves...

Bring some grease, lockring wrench, 15mm wrench, pump, standard hex sizes, cable cutter... should be good enough to get you across the border (assuming you're mechanically competent).

all you "need" to do if i remember correctly is attach the wheels and handle bars. You can do all the tinkering and adjusting once you get home

The fork is attached, but you will need to mount the seatpost, handlebars, and rims. Bring exactly what yummygooey said, and it shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes to be fully functional. However, once you get a chance I would tighten everything ASAP (cog/lockring/etc)

This is a good question. Would you mind posing it in the "Dear Carleton" thread?
