One of my sons showed up at the house this last weekend with virtually everything needed for a fairly decent ride... except a frame. Apparently, a neighbor crashed a Giant OCR and destroyed the frame (He got t-boned by another rider). In any event my son bought the parts for $80 and is now looking for a frame to build up. He's a casual road rider that does three to four 10 to 20 mile rides per week in good weather. He's not interested in touring or racing. And here's the catch. He's a full time student who works part-time to pay his rent and expenses. Hence, he has almost no cash reserve. All the bike shops in the area are giving him quotes of $500+ dollars. Any of you have ideas of frames that might be worth investigating at a lower cost than this?
