I've built up track and BMX bikes before, but now I'm building up my first road bike using parts made of carbon and titanium materials. I want to make sure that I'm prepared when I'm ready to put it all together, so I would like any advice/info on what I should/shouldn't be doing. Here is what I have so far:

- Ti Prep on all bolts, especially titanium bolts
- Grease on headset and bottom bracket bearings
- Loctite on chainring bolts (I've read that this is good and bad, not sure.)
- Carbon assembly paste on any carbon parts in contact with carbon/aluminum
- Apply proper torque to bolts

For general guidance, the Park Tool New Bike Assembly list is helpful.

Good checklist from Park, filmat11.
I always like to lay the components -boxed or otherwise - on an old blanket on a table.
This helps me spot a missing or improperly-sized part.
Then place the pieces inside individual boxes with containers for the nuts & bolts.

Before my test ride, it's a good idea to give every fastener a quick check for tightness.
It's real easy to miss that second bolt on the non-drive crankarm. :noidea:
