Best option for bike build up

Postby Cmm » Wed Feb 27, 2013 10:52 am

Hey all

I took the plunge and purchased a new frame (giant defy advanced) too good a deal to pass up.

Now I need to build it up when it arrives.

I am a noob to bike mechanics so should I just be taking it all to the LBS to have them do it? What kinda of cost would I expect here?

Or can a noob do the change over? Bb is already installed.

Thanks Chris

Did the same thing with a new avanti quantum frame set for my 2nd roadie. You'll more than likely spend more than the bike cost new in the lbs but you'll have the bits you want. Remember to buy the chain and cassette tool. Bought all my bits from the uk shops. Was fun sending presents to myself :)
