Default Re: Just starting

The main thinhs I wish I would have appreciated on my recent first build are: large diameter frame tubes require an adapter plate be fabricated and a coaster brake requires enlarging the sprocket hole and bending the Bendix arm.
So, if you want a fast build, get an older(small tubing),non bendix arm bike.
In general, be ready to come up with solutions to your engineering difficulties, and you will solve them in a day or two.
