I have a project of building a touring bike from scratch by cherry picking every component. I started looking at some potential framesets.
One of the candidates is the Surly Disc Trucker. I can see on the product page that they propose a build kit for it, listing all the major components, but they seem to omit the required small parts that may not be included with the frameset. For example, is the cable guide under the bottom bracket (e.g. Shimano SM-SP18) included? What about the bolts, axles, collars, etc?
So, in a general way since I have not settled on a specific frameset yet (and also specifically for the Disc Trucker since I consider it seriously), what small parts are usually overlooked when buying a frameset? That would be a shame to order it and all the components just to realize that a small part is missing.
