Anyone ever build up a bike using one?
I'm looking at the el-cheapo touring frame/fork combo for a commuter/bike path kinda ride.

What say you all?

Ain't sure which frame you speak of, but I recall several folks speaking favorably of their alu mtb ht frame a few years back - dunno if it's the same, whatever..... I'd imagine it would be totally fine for the use you describe. Bikes ridden on sedate surfaces (paved ?) rarely suffer any frame problems, unless hucked down stairs, or something...or defective....heh

Sorry was at work when I started this thread-forgot to include a link.

I kinda figured they where OK for "light duty", just wanted to know if anyone had problems with an assembly. Like maybe bad paint job, racked frame, out of square head-tubes/BB threading. The type of stuff that requires sending it back.

Do a search on Roadbike Review's forums. There are a few folks there who have built these frames up both recently and a while ago. Look for a posting by Squidward (me) over there as I have listed a few minor problems with my build. I've put a few miles on my bike so far and I don't have any complaints about the frame other than what I noted in that thread. The frame arrived with the bottom bracket and headtube already faced.

The frame comes with an aluminum fork, not the chrome-moly one that they list on Nashbar's site.
