Where do you think is the best place to get a build kit? I've got a nice frame I'd like to build up and the kits seem like the best deal. I've looked at Excel, Colorado Cyclist, GVH bikes...does anyone have experiences they'd like to share? Advice? Thanks!

if you get the frame from GVH, though, you should ask him how much he'll give you for the kit ... price should be around abici's.

I built up a road bike this fall--ordered nearly a full record group (got the bb and the hs with the frame) from parker-international, which had very good prices. Also the wheels and pedals, etc. Ended up getting the bars and this and that locally. Domestically,Texas Cyclesport seems to have good Shimano prices (and decent campy prices for the US), and I believe that they do full build kits, but I've never bought one there (did buy some tires and Kreitler rollers from them--no problems).
