I've just finished (pretty much) building my own bike up from nothing, with no previous experience.
I have one thing to say to you:
Brace yourself, it might get frustrating but in the end, it's totally worth it.
Then again, I probably did do it the hard way hahah!
If later, you come back and use a lot of swearwords in a later post, I know where you're coming from and I feel your pain.. :P
