Hey guys, I'm wanting to get into riding road bikes but I honestly dont have the money for a new bike. So I was going to try and build one up around an old Specialized Hardrock Frame and crankset. Before I take it to the local bike store for some help picking out parts I want to see if you guys think it would be a nice little road bike once its complete. Also, I wanted it to have 1 chain ring in the front and have gears in the back. If you guys can recommend any parts that would be cool, I know I need: fork, headset, stem, handlebars, wheelset, tires, chain ring for front, rear derailer, cassett, and shifter. If anyone has pictures of bikes rehauled into road bikes post them as well. Let me know what you guys think, am I stupid? Here is a picture of what I'm working with.
