    SS build kits?

    Anyplace sell SS build kits?

    What's a rough idea of the cost to build a frame / fork into a built bike with good quality parts that won't break the bank? Can it be done for $300? $600?

    I'm debating a custom frame that I'd build up myself versus a package deal from Fisher / Trek / Kona that can be had under a grand. I realize the complete bikes at a price point always cut corners on components, but I'm ok with that.

    Pricepoint has some in their SS area comes with tires also about $600 with shipping.

    You could also just buy the deadeye and strip the components off.

    Tough to make things cheaper than the manufacturer unless you have no sense of urgency building the bike. You can always find sweet deals on CL and MTBR on individual parts.

    Are we talking new or used?
    No way are you going to build a bike up for $300, $600, i doubt it if you are looking for decent parts. If you want to put together a half ass build kit you could probably do $600

    The wheelset is going to cost you
    Probably score a takeoff set for $200 or so throw in $60 for tires if 29er and probably $150 for brakes and you are already past the $400 mark.


    Really depends what parts we are talking about. One person's opinion of good stuff is subjective
