    Nashbar Touring Bike build on the Olympic Peninsula

    So far I've disassembled my old mountain bike to rob the XT components, etc. off of it.

    Today the frame arrived and this post is dedicated to giving those thinking about buying one a better look at it. I held it up to my 59cm Klein Quantum and the seat tube height was identical, that is 54cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the center of the top tube and 60cm from the center of the BB to the top of the seat tube.

    Nice paint job, one drip where too much paint dried and one light scratch. These were taken in the shade. It looks lighter and sparkles in the sun.

    I just received the same frame with the chromoly fork last week, I'll be putting it together over the next few months. I was impressed with the quality of the paint.
