Re: I've been away from this for awhile, but now I'm back and want to build a bike
That is a really good thought. Keep it simple and work up as wanted and or needed.
Met a guy once. He was retired and liked to tinker with bikes and sell them. What he did was go to local dumps and they would just give him bikes. The guy had at least 4 or 500 bikes. Was just a hobby for him but man he had some cool stuff.
His only complaint was it was a rule here that he could not cherry pick and had to take the whole bike and not just parts.
I have always meant to try it but never got around to it.
Just a thought.
Also, Goodwill and thrift stores are great! Some times you get lucky. Once saw a Worksman that was missing a pedal. They wanted $20! I forget why but did not get it and when I went back, it was gone.
