Hello weight weenies!
I want to get into the weenie world, and to do so I must have a very light bike. However, being a teenager, I don't have a limitless budget by any stretch. I hope to be able to build my own bike from scratch as I have experience in building bikes (I've assembled friends' road bikes) but if that is not possible a complete is possible. My current bike's dropout has snapped after a particularly nasty crash, so I need to start from scratch. Any suggestions?
P.S. If you're looking for a number moneywise I'm hoping to stay under $2700 for the custom, but preferences on light frame/seatpost. I can always upgrade wheels/tyres and groupsets, as you all know.
