Nashbar touring frame... $127.

Price dropped down to $149, and a 15% off coupon that expires today will bring it down to $127.

Glad I waited till this morning, almost bought it last night when it was still $219.

Enjoy your build. Nice price for a frame/fork combo. Post some pictures when you get it built.

That is a nice deal on a new frame fork combo.

But if you are real thrifty, I continue to find complete vintage touring bikes in that price range. I picked up this Miyata Tuesday. Bike is spotless, could use a new set of tires (due to aging, not wear) and a new seat. Cost me $165. This bike came off of ebay, so it was not some secret, back of the barn deal.

how do you go about sizing the top tube on a frame like this for drop bars? the nashbar bike seems to have a pretty long top tube for this type of set up.....?
