So, after my recent experience trying a 3t Strada (which I’ve decided against, for various reasons) I have decided that I would like to build myself an aero bike. Why? 1 - I’d like an aero bike 2 - doing it bit by bit will help with budgeting and 3 - I’d actually like to build my own bike.
Now here is the problem: my mechanical skills are limited. I’m fine adjusting derailleurs, routine fettling etc, but I’ll be honest: things like hydraulic discs are totally out of my comfort zone. I’m reasonably generally ‘handy’ but have never routinely done anything but basic maintenance on my bikes.
So, 3 questions: 1 - realistically, how hard is a self-build, 2 - what’s a basic essential list of tools and 3 - what are the best learning resources? I assume youtube, but some decent links, and something with a systematic guide, would be very handy.
Thanks in advance.
