Hello, and thanks for allowing me to join. I live in Texas, in my city, no laws, just obey all bicycle laws and they leave you alone. So for first build, I am asking what company do you go with? There are so many, prices are so different, it makes it hard to figure out who has best stuff for the price. Second, what kind of bikes are best? Walmart name brand ones or ? Third, any suggestions on the whole jackshaft thing, as I would like a bike that I can shift the rear derailleur from the bike with. Is it worth it as far as speed and the rest? I appreciate any and all advice and again am thankful for such a cool site, obviously filled with even cooler people!
