In the beginning
Here is what I started with:
Heckler Frame: $80
Bontrager Race Tubless wheelset with Jones XR tubless tires : $40 !! (not in this picture, I took this the day after I got the frame and had just hung all the stuff on it and I didn't stumble across the wheels until later!)
New 8 speed Shimano HG40 cassette: $23
Not bad so far, huh? Since I have always wanted a decent quality bike but didn't have the $1K-$2K to shell out, This is going to be an all-out "Cheap Rebuild"
