    compiled all files into a word document

    hey man, this is a great guide with lots of thought, humor, and time put into it. thanks a million. i compiled all the images and text into one word document so people can save it to their hard drive easier instead of saving each file individually. hope this helps!

    I'll pass on the cold, bitter coffee (reminds me of my X-wife) but overall a fantastic job Bob

    Love this thread... If one can build it they will know how to take care of it!

    Just wish you would make more like this...really educational.

    Great write up but did anyone notice he didn't use the saw guide correctly?

    Thanks for the comment.

    That has been explained. I had someone pose for a couple photos and he had the saw in the wrong place. Hand models aren't mechanics.

    By that time I had spent two days on this project and overlooked it.


    Did you find any spelling mistakes?

    4 Years later....thanks for posting this! I moved away from the coolest bicycle shop in San Diego and so I'm now forced to wrench on my own bike.

    So cool!

    Good job!

    Most useful thread I've come across on mtbr so far.

    Many thanks for the effort to make people like me a little less bicycle ignorant.

    one question though, is "ti prep" really necessary or would your standard automotive anti-seize work? I have a huge tub of that stuff left from when I used to do my own spark plug changes...

    Help with fame specs

    First off, gorgeous build!! Definitely drooling over it You seem like you really know what you are doing in your builds! Any chance you could give me some guidance and advice on an unknown frame I have and the specs for it? I want to know if it is possible or worthwhile to build up. I am pretty sure it is a very low end frame, but I was hoping that I could build it up and then switch everything over to a new frame when I have the funds and have decided on a quality frame. I am not sure that the specs will make this possible. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Great read. The humor, the drama and the happy ending. I am thinking of adapting this to a screen play to submit to the local theatre (Plan B here in Utah). My builds are more like a horror story.
    ps - I cannot find anything regarding Ti anti-seize vs. non-specific (any metal) anti seize lubricants. I say use what you have.

    Very informative, yet entertaining build tutorial.

    That's too bad.
    It is a six year-old thread. Probably time for an updated version by someone.
    Bikes have come a long way since 2007, as has Youtube as a source for how-to info.

    While we wait for the 2013 CGI animated thread (with tapered headsets, BB30, BB92, 142x12 thru-axles, internally routed seatposts, and tubeless 27.5 wheels and tires), maybe the moderator can restore the old photos.
