I took the plunge. The Specialized bike is torn down to components.
No turning back now. Surprisingly I’m feeling good about putting together something that, in the end, will be a bike. Now it’s a frame and handlebars. (No, the headset isn’t coming along for the ride just yet)
I have all the parts except a few which should be showing up tomorrow.
- Bottom bracket
- Rear cassette
- Front derailleur
- Front shifters / brake (brifters)
- Rear derailleur
En’s out of town so I get to play with no rush at all! :-)
Time to go downstairs and give the frame a good scrub. This is the first time it’s been this naked, might as well wash it down!
