Here's where I'm leaning. The Crosshairs is really nice, light-weight frame set with lots of clearance for larger tires and fenders, and mounts for fenders and racks. It doesn't have the original paint job and the repaint done by the previous owner was not great. I hate to sell the frame for peanuts but would like to see someone continue to use it for commuting or cyclocross.

If I can get it powder coated locally for about $100, I'll probably get it repainted. It's worth the gamble to me because it's a really nice frame set. Personally I don't think the lack of original paint or decals is a big deal because it's not a class bike anyway, and a new powder coat should be a plus for either commuters or cyclocrossers.
