Feel a beaming sense of accomplishment after creating your own bike. Your self-esteem may spike in other areas too. Not everyone has the patience to create their own bicycle. But when you're finished with your project, you'll be able to brag to all your friends, family, and neighbors. While it's easy to stop by any outdoor shop and find a decent bike, building it with someone you care about is a great bonding experience too. Let's say you want security, but you also want speed. And you've found that pre-assembled bikes are not giving you all the features you want and need in a bike.
