I just started biking about a week ago, I picked up a Univega Viva Sport road bike off my friends backyard...took it to a local bike repair shop...and rode it...i was amazed about how light..it is.. and was hooked at the speed...

So my question is...I want to build my own bike...i want to have a frame similar to this..but hopefully not as expensive http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBCBkModel.jsp?sid=09Tarmac&eid=115

any advice on where I should start? or where I can get parts for that Univega ?

I built one of those frames in my garage just last week!

PM me and I'll send you the detail plans for $137.95.

Or better yet, send me $5,000 and I'll refund the difference AND a send a set of plans.

Definitely - the second option.

At $3000 for the frameset-you can get nicer things than mass-produced plastic bikes.

Feel free to quote me.


BTW-Terry, when I was at teh LBS, asking if someone had a Moots in my size to try in the area, they said someone had just ordered one...they also said that said someone had purchased 1 bike permonth for the last year from said shop...He sold the car, wife said he could use what would have been car payments on bikes...they denied knowing anyone by the name of "terryb".
