    Aside from finding one used, most likely not.

    unbiased facts

    pros;
    -cheap, about half than a super pista
    -thicker aluminum than ftp/pista concept/mash
    -decent customer service
    -1 1/8 ht, 27.2 post - all the correct standards
    -removable decals

    cons;
    -heavy, but not too bad

    some warnings;
    -some say the rear wheel hits the seat tube. i think this is fixed with the v2. just something to look out for if you buy used

    could be pros, could be cons - you decide
    -integrated headset
    -drilled for brakes

    any new production frame is going to blow each away, unless your nishiki is an olympic or track. the 725 included. the 722ts is probably comparable to a great condition nishiki track.

    great frame. if you were thinking of buying it, go ahead. you wont regret it.

    Maybe spend a little more for leader's carbon fork.

    I'm pretty sure when I get the cash im going to pick up the frame. Right now i'm looking for an out of state vendor with free shipping so I don't have to pay sales tax. Going to build it up with Black super Veeps Probably B123's and Black OMNOMNOMNOMIUMS

    Some shops could insert pem nuts for you or you could use hose clamps to clamp cages to the seat tube.

    The 721 is basically the same as a 725 but with a standard seat tube/seat post clamp. IMO, the non-aero seat tube looks out of place and I prefer the 725.
