I'm an experienced recreational cyclist - mountain, road, century rides, etc. Family gaining interest too, but in COVID times, really tough to find bikes these days. I'm looking to upgrade my son and husband to better mountain bikes, but having a hard time finding many options. In addition, my 10yr old is all about customizing everything - scooter, skateboard, bikes. He'd love the idea of this. However, I have no experience in building a bike and little confidence in my ability to do so. Is it possible to 'build a bike' here and have a local bike shop build it for me by shipping the parts there? Or through your forum, find local experts that might be able to do it for a fee? Love the idea of this platform. Also, should I decide to tackle the build on my own, is there a forum here with advice should I run into a problem? Haven't seen that yet in the little digging around I did.
