Nashbar frame

Does anyone have any experience with the Nashbar Touring frame? I see the aluminum frames are on sale, but I cannot find the frame measurements. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. A frame build sounds exiting if I can find the time.

I wrote a thread about my experiences building one up.

For the specs on the frame size, contact Nashbar.

The frames may be back ordered at the moment.

The frame is heavy and stiff, but strong and rideable. It's not bad for a beater/commuter. I'd even say it's tour worthy, though I haven't had the chance to tour with mine yet.

The welds are ugly, and there isn't really clearance for a rear fender with a wide tire.

Now, go read my thread. The search function is your friend.

ThANKS RegularGuy, I did a search before I posted, but came back with no results. And I searched with the title.

I ordered mine on September 13th. It was backordered with a mid-November delivery prediction. Come last week, the predicted delivery date had slipped to December 27!

I cancelled my order, spent an extra $100, and bought a Klein Navigator.

I'd have preferred the Nashbar, but if they can't sell me what they don't have.

Supposedly these new shipment of Nashbar frames will come with the 'corrected' placement of the chainstay bridge, just behind the BB shell.
