This is a question for those that rather build then buy from the LBS or buy for bikes for components. When I say waste, I mean parts bought that didn't work out in the over build and either sits in a crate or was sold at a loss. Not say that buying bike stuff is a waste. Over the holidays I sold everything I had except a 60mm Gravity stem. I was happy to get most of it back, but it stings a Little that I wasted a few hundred of dollars. I know that's chicken feed to some of you guys. With that being said, the wife's still doesn't have to know.
