    Checklist for first bike build

    I'm going to attempt to build my first bike this winter. Right now I'm in the process of getting my tools and working area arranged and organized. Question....will the Park Tool 9 stand work or should I go with the 10? If you think there a better option let me know.

    Are there any hand tools that I will need other than the obvious that may come in handy? Just got the latest edition of Zinn Mountain Bike maintenance. Are there any books that are a must have that will help this rookie?

    Words of advice are welcome.

    Do you mean build a frame (as in, take some steel/ti/aluminum/bamboo/etc and join pieces to make a bike frame)? Or are you talking about doing things like installing cranks and a headset? If the former, welcome! If the latter, you're in the wrong forum and I'll be happy to move this post over to the mechanics/tools forum.
