In the next few weeks I will finalize all the parts for my new FS bike. This will be my first FS bike as some have heard me talking about for sometime now.
I am considering building it up myself instead of taking to the LBS. I have always been very mechanically inclined in almost everything I do from cars, to home remodeling to anything that needs to be fixed.
If I get my own tools will I need anything other than a chain wip, BB and cassette tool? The only part I am a bit hesitant on is the fork installation/cutting of the fork.
Some feedback on building a bike for the first time from all you vets would be appreciated. Things to watch out for etc. I am aware of torque settings for specific parts etc. I know Park Tool as alot of good info as well for reference.
