@moz, @neil-fein, So, to progress further, I don't want to buy a ready made bike because singlespeed or fixed gear bikes are way expensive due to their popularity. I am hoping that I can find a frame on the cheap side maybe as a second hand. I edited the question.

@moz I understand, but if somebody asked "social network" question, I would recommend to read two books: Designing Social Interfaces by O'Reilly and Moggridge's Designing Media. For such a vague question it is unnecessary to confuse the person with technical questions from the beginning, like which database engine is more efficient. So, there is always a good way to answer.

Here's an analogy: Do I have to know everything from the beginning if I wanted to start building my own table or little electronics project? No! I just need to have enthusiasm and gather information about stuff. But clearly, you guys don't have any idea about experimentation... I bet you have never played an instrument or made paintings. Obviously, you just want to push away other people that are starting to get interested in bike building.

thanks for not answering anything. even the website part of the question... I think stackexchange should welcome newbies, but clearly Bicycles beta is not that welcoming at all...

I want it cheap, simple and light (not competition light with carbons etc. but reasonably light). I want to have control on all the parts that's why I want to build. I've never had a road bike, I've always had mountain bikes so that's why I want to get information. I tried a friend's road bike and it felt great and seemed that I was always loosing too much power because of the gears. I am going to use the bike for commuting. hope this helps...

@neil thanks, I modified it. I am not that new to stackexchange afterall. I've been using stackoverflow for a while now. Asking programming questions feels a bit different :)
