Qj-<< I am building a new road bike. Although I have built many mountain bikes,
this will be my first road machine. I just bought a new Kestrel Talon Frame
seen here: >><BR><BR>

Biggest one is ensure that the BB sheel is prepped, that's right, chase the threads and face the
aluminum shell, samo for the head tube. Then grease everything threaded, adjust BB well with grease
added, otherwise it's just a bike. make the housing long enough as well as the fork steerer, You can
always shorten it, diffucult to lengthen.

After spending that much cash, you might consider spending another 50 bucks (or whatever) to have a
good shop assemble for you.

It's kind of a hobby, the bike means more if I build it myself. How will I ever learn if I don't do
it myself? You can only read so much. Plus, when parts need replacement I don't want to wait for the
shop. I can do Shimano on mountain bikes, why not learn to work on road. Why not save the $50 for
after build/ride brews.
