Default Re: what would you do differently

What I'm asking is this: with your experience what would you do differently if you could do your first build over or better? Assume you have the raw as me. What parts would you switch out, if something bit you what was it and how would you change it.

I'm really looking to see what you did that worked great or failed miserably. As this is my first build I think it prudent of me to learn now before I start the build. Like I said I have read most of this site and have complied great info and tips. Basically I'm trying to learn from you as most of you have built and discovered along the way. Why re-invent the wheel. Not looking for directions on how to mount and things like that as I have found a wealth of information here.

I am in need of a repair stand and once I have one (hopefully soon) I am thinking about getting my bike in order first. The sedona is close to 10 years old and has about 30 miles on it. Im going to repack bearings, clean up everything, check and adjust cables etc before even thinking about the build.

So if you have something that would help a newbie with his first build well great please post and if not hey at least you took the time to read this so thanks for that.

have a great day all


f I ever build one, this is what I'd use:

mountain bike with 24-speeds;
shift kit;
SBP expansion pipe;
