What's missing

So at this point I have most of the parts of the bike. Things I still need:

1) Brakes
2) Handlebars and related parts
3) Fenders
4) Seatpost (it's unlikely Zora's seatpost will fit this frame)
5) Oh yes, the actually frame. Bikes need a frame.

The brakes and fenders have to wait for the frame, for a few measurements. The brakes have to reach the rims. And the fenders have to be narrow enough to fit in the frame.

In the end this bike will cost around $1,200. I hope it's good. When I started I was thinking about half that. But had I actually done the math, about a grand seems reasonable.
