This would actually be a better deal.
However, the only problem with Nashbar, is the fact that if there is a problem with your purchase, it's a greater hassle to resolve it. The problem comes with the fact that you might have to pay to return the bike. OTOH, Performance will have a brick and mortar pick-up location where you can test ride the bike, inspect it, and decide on the spot if you want to return or exchange it. IMO, Performance is a greater convenience in terms of service, but may not be as thrifty as a Nashbar bike deal.
*The GT at Nashbar only comes in small, medium, and x-large sizes.
