Nashbar Alloy Road Frame. No matter if you're interested in building up a zippy, performance oriented road bike, a sturdy steed for commuting, or anything falling in between, the Nashbar Alloy Frame is a versatile foundation awaiting your perfect build. This svelte frame is constructed of 6061 aluminum the industry standard for quality in either mountain or road bike frames.

The material strikes a nice, happy medium between carbon fiber and steel. In this rendition, the Nashbar frame features sculpted, aero top tubes and down tubes paired with a traditional, round tubed rear triangle. All of the cables are externally routed for ease of maintenance and set up, the bottom bracket shell is the classic 68mm English thread standard, while the head tube is designed to accept a 1 18 zero stack headset. This frames is such a good deal that resistance is futile. Snap one up today and build it just the way you imagined.
