Nashbar Touring Frame/Fork $60 after sale price plus 20% off coupon

Sorry for posting another one of these, but price wise this is the lowest I have ever seen them go.

The 12 hour coupon code is BECAUSE.

I'm pretty tempted by this.

Any thoughts on sizing? I'm 6' and normally ride a 23"/58cm C-C, but those often come with a ~22in top tube. Their 58 has a 59cm top tube, which sounds long. Would that be manageable with a longer stem?

Just saw the e-mail about the sale. I already own one of these frames, but for $60 I'm tempted to buy another one!

I was tempted, but then I found that getting one to Canada will more than double the price.

Tempted to buy one for me and one for my gf...

People who own one already: What size do I need? I am 6' currently ride a 58 but should be riding a 56, and I heard that with this frame you want to go one size below what you'd normally go? Can anyone confirm or deny that?

What sort of riding position do you want? Race bike extreme? Bolt upright? That'll have a big impact on which frame you should buy, I'd think...

In my case, I bought a Nashbar touring frame that was the same size as my Cervelo RS "endurance" road bike: 54cm. Top tube lengths on both frames were similar (Cervelo = 545mm, Nashbar = 540mm), which is usually the best indication that the frame will fit. I put a 10mm shorter stem on the touring frame (Cervelo = 110mm, Nashbar = 100mm), to allow for a slightly more upright riding position. FWIW, I'm about 5'9" with a 32" inseam.

I'm 6' with a 30 inch inseam (short little legs lol) and I have back problems which seem to not be as bothered on my road bike as my mountain bikes, so it seems to me like I might want to be a little stretched out, but not crazy race style stretched out like my current bike.

I think I'll go with the 56 then unless anybody else has further info.

That didn't last long. Back up to $99.99 before the 20% off coupon.

My (other) road bikes are 60cm with 130mm stems. I went with the 60cm Nashbar frame with a 100mm stem. The fit is spot on but I have a bit more of a drop from the saddle to the bar than I would like. Ideally I would have liked a 62cm frame with an 80mm stem, or a head tube that sticks up one inch from the top tube (like the LHT) so that I wouldn't have to load up on spacers to get the bar up high, but it turned out OK as it is.
