Nashbar No Frills Road frame: CLOSE UP!

I know I've mentioned time and time again about how much I dig these cheapy Nashbar road frames. When the one I ordered for my lady friend came in, I figured I'd share before the build up:

I know, lovingly built by robots.. They were on sale for $99 and with the 25% coupon I posted last week it was a steal at $75! I'm actually kinda pissed I didn't get one for myself come to think of it. The frame pictured is a 54cm frame. 54cm CTC ST and 53cm CTC TT. It seemed like it a was a hair longer on both those measurements but we're talking a few millimeters at most. As is the frame weights in a 3.65lbs. Not great but not that bad either!

The thing I like most about these frames is the longer legs than arms geometry they offer. T-Rex fit in other words, hehe. I don't know bout ya'll but I'm SO SUPER SICK of frames having longer TTs than STs. Drives me NUTS whenever I'm trying to find something for myself and others with a similar fit..

So yeah, if you're in need of a locker/beater frame for yourself or a friend that's totally disposable and fun to ride, this is SO it! Just wait for Nashbar to run a sale and you're gtg!

I'll be sure to post some photos once it's done..
