Nope, unless you're picking half of your parts from scratch and dent, from the lower end of parts, or from the sale category, that's completely normal of a custom complete.

You don't. You simply go onto Craigslist or whatever selling apps you can find, and look for custom completes or individual bike parts. You're in California, so don't tell me you don't have access to any of that, especially when you're on an online forum.

you say: "Hey mom, i am going to go get a job so I can start saving up for this cool bike I am thinking of building..."

that's what I did back when i bought my first good bike in 1980. Worked for a year to buy my own Mongoose Supergoose...was in 5th grade. Mowed lawns, shoveled snow,cleaned out basements of older people, delivered things for the local pharmacy....there were ways to get that money!

When it is all said and done, and you eliminate parts that you don't like but looked good online that 1000 dollars starts looking real cheap. Maybe you aren't as picky on your bike parts as I am though......

That's actually pretty cheap for a custom, if it's only $1,000. Mine is going to be around $1.600

I spent around 600-700 when I worked in a shop and bought things at COST. Retail would have clocked around 1500 or so.

It's a drop in the bucket compared to dialed MTB's or Road bikes. I've seen road bikes EASILY clear 10-15 GRAND.

seems about right, also if youre old enough I would recommend working and paying for the bike on your own instead of relying on your parents to buy it for you or at least buying a decent complete first then building on to it.

This. And whatever you do, TAKE CARE OF IT, it helps with a lot more than just having a dialed bike. Parents will see it is well kept, friends will see, and they will think you are more reliable. Next thing you know, Mom and Dad are going away for the weekend and you get the house to yourself! WOOO
