This was my first attempt at a bike build.  I learned a lot from this and subsequent builds.  The first thing is that it is much, much easier to get everything working right when you buy the right equipment and components.  Spend the extra money, get the good components.

This is less an entry about what I did than a collection of pictures chronicling the process.  I purchased the majority of parts from Performance Bike, and had them do the fork and headset install.  I started this project in March of 2012, and completed it in June of 2012, as purchasing the parts took a bit of time.
