During December of 2012 my Raleigh Grand Prix was stolen outside of a job I was working at in Chelsea. I was stupid. I shouldn't have been locking the bike up in the first place. Well life goes on and this is about just that. There is a beautiful place on the internet for people that love bikes. That place is called Velospace! See. I had never built a road bike from the ground up before. I've been working on bikes since I was six years old. I worked at a bike shop for two years but never did I build a road bike piece by piece. This is where Velospace comes in. Theres a lot of really cool people that frequent the forum and they really helped me with my build. I can't thank them enough for it.
You can check out the complete build thread up on Velospace here.
