Depends very much on what you want to build. If you just want a bike, it will be cheaper to get one on craigslist. If you want to buy the parts individually it will be much more expensive, however you will end up with a better bike.
Let me give you some ideas so you know what you're looking at. These are low prices on Craigslist...
1. wheels: $50
2. V Brakes: $50
3. Drivetrain: $100 (shifters and derailleurs)
4. Cranks, bottom bracket $60
5. Other small parts: $100.
thank you for your time and reply. i will checvk into this at the week end.. im just looking for a so so bike somthing to get me around the city and occasionaly sum trails. thanks again ill get back at you. i mostly need a drivetrain a managed to get some free v brakes and tire . thanks again.
