    Does anyone have build kits online?

    I'm looking to upgrade my komodos parts. I'm in need of derailleurs and shifters. Wheelset, fork, bars ,stem, headset. Maybe cranks. I'd like to put on an e13 stS possibly too.

    I seen pricepoint has a few kits, but just looking for more options.

    Haha I guess the answer is always that easy huh. Is shimano stuff pretty decent? Any line that I should be more looking into versus not ( like mid grade and not cheap stuff) . What about sram?

    SRAM vs. Shimano is a personal preference in my opinion. Both work well.

    Depending on what you want to do with your bike (e.g., bash the hell out of it or bling it out), I would aim for XT line (Shimano) or X9 gear (SRAM) or better. If you want cheap and replaceable, go for SLX. It does the job, is cheap and readily available. If you want bling and weight savings, go for XTR or X0 (or XX).

    There is a great place to start. I love the fact that it gives you claimed weights to help the decision process.

    Then I'd go for Shimano SLX line or SRAM X7 (probably wouldn't go to X5 though).

    Or you can look for closeouts on last years stuff (which there is a LOT of right now as the 2012 stuff comes out).

    Yeah, a lot of the major online retailers for example. Wheelworld (even though I despise their customer service) had a 20% off everything online and in store sale (today is the last day I think). Just shop around. You'll find good deals if you look . . .

    I like Universal Cycles. They have pretty good prices and with the VIP15 code for purchases over $300, it makes it a really good deal.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.
