I'm looking to strip the parts off my old road bike and build a touring bike. I was wondering if the Nashbar frame was worth it or should I step up to the LHT or something similar? My main concern is that the large diameter aluminum will transmit vibration to my feet unless I use fat tires all the time. I took a 5-day tour on my Raleigh road bike with 28mm tires and my feet were numb for two weeks after I returned. Any input greatly appreciated.
