:roll:,Then you are a perfect candidate for a complete.

You should only buy a custom bike if you:
1. are good enough that a sick bike will improve your riding
2. have enough money for one anyway

If you dont fall into any of these catagories, get a stock complete

if i buy a complete i will most likely have to change most of the parts on it for better ones because i will break them.

it depends on what bike you get - how expensive it is, the brand, and aftermarket parts that may come on it

That will likely happen either way. I hope you are not saying you would replace them before they break. Parts on high end completes are not significantly weaker that parts on a custom.

Sorry to be blunt, but that is a dumb idea :?. The frame isn't worthy of upgrades. Why not just get an Apex which is one of the best completes out there, or another? With the $1000 you got to invest you could get some thing like http://wethepeople.de/V3/product/249 which has a Sanko butted tubed frame and still have a couple hundred left over to customize it. Don't waste your money on a bike that is not full CroMo and sealed.

WTP Envy....the best stock complete by far
aftermarket cranks, hubs, stem, etc
butted sanko tubing with removable brake mounts
