    Bike Nashbar touring frame on sale. $149.95

    If anyone is interested Bike Nashbar has touring frames on sale for $149.95. Very good price but the aluminum frame and threadless fork kills my interest in it.

    I saw that one but I dont want to go down the road of an aluminum frame. I am sure someone could turn it into a pretty cool commuter though.
    ^this may or may not be useful information <--this not so much.

    Exactly my thought when I saw the heading.

    Just noticed it's back to $179.95. I might get interested if it ever drops below $100. Call me old school but I like all steel frame bikes, especially for long rides.

    I thought hard about getting one of these to build up a town bike/commuter/grocery getter, for which aluminum would actually be OK b/c of the potential for exposure to rain, but I ended up going with a used Surly Long Haul Trucker instead.

    Everything I read about the Nashbar frame was positive, though. FWIW.
    Lemond Poprad: Cross/Road
    Bianchi Denali: Mountain
    Surly LHT: Town/Commuter

    "the feel of steel"
