Don't really know much about the frames, but it seems like a good deal.
The chrome fork is on sale separately too for $50.

The price on these frames has been dropping continuously for the past few months. $180 is definitely a killer deal for that frame. Not that I want to buy one, but I'm curious what the geometry is like. Am I missing it on the page, or is it not published?

there's a link to a pdf that has full specs. I just bought one today. w/out the stickers i think it will build up to be a sharp bike. i'll be curious to see how large a tire i can fit on it.

They almost do

It is a 44 x 16 freewheel ss.
I was thinking of throwing some cheap http://wheelandsprocket.com/itemdeta...gId=39&id=8235
on it, but then I realized some of the other components may be cheap.

the head and seat angles look ok, if you can find a short rake fork it would be pretty nice.

I've changed my mind. I'm with m4bandit. Buy it.

I'm going to go and spend $161 on candy and Soundgarden CD's now.
