Re: Building a bike vs just buying one


Went into my LBS one day with a whole list of upgrades I wanted to do for my bike (fork, wheels, handlebars, etc), but he took a look at my bike (which is not even 3 months old but very entry level) and said the cheapest way to get all of the better equipment on a bike would be to save up and get the better bike, versus dropping a bunch of bones on seperate parts. He said the manufacturers assemble the bikes cheaper than we can because they get their parts in bulk.

So, per that advice, don’t build, save and buy.
