Buildin' a Road Bike

It’s Independence Day, and King George ain’t gonna tell me what kind of bike to ride. I plan to build a custom road bike. Because freedom, that’s why. Flat, narrow bars; 35mm slicks; a demi-porteur cargo rack; and a big disc brake up front. No rear brake and no front derailleur, I don’t believe in those.

Parts List

These are the parts that I’m tentatively planning to use, subject to my whims and to figuring out which parts are best and which are actually compatible.
