I am thinking about starting a project of building a bike from parts. My girlfriends stepdad knows how to build bikes from the ground up b/c he rebuilds all kinds of them for people all the time as a hobby. I was thinking I could start with finding the frame/fork/engine and work from there with the specialy aftermarket parts I wanted. I want a relatively new bike, like 2002 plus. 1 or 2 years old max. I want to get something not too big because I am only 5'6". I am 21 and am very athletic and strong. So I can handle holding on but I am not an experienced rider to any degree. I just decided I wanted to have some fun with my girlfriend and her friends. I would probably let her take out one of her bikes, or if you guys have a suggestion I would like to hear one for her.
