Hmm, I think these tye of projects should start with 0 parts. IE buy everything for the budget. I think trading stuff that at some point along the line cost you money, and then not counting that expense towards the final bill is cheating. Likewise using stuff you had in stock.

For an extreme example there are many on here (least I hope I am not the only one) who could put all the £75 on a carefuly selected ebay frame, then build the rest up with bling thats sat in the cupboard and claim it only cost you £75 to do...ignoring the fact you previously spent £100 on a ti CK headset that you ended up swapping for a brake cable set.

Love the stem though 8)

i understand what your saying, most of the bits i traded though have been from donated bikes or bikes that i bought off ebay and parted out, so have paid for themselves already. the £75 budget was what i had for the build and i wanted to see how far i could get on it.

plus a few people got a few bits they needed but couldn't pay for so everybody is happy.

oh and where are these £100 ck ti headsets? :lol:
