I was wondering if anyone has had experience with the Nashbar road frame? I was looking through the reviews but could not find any? Can anyone tell me how it rides?

no, but their 50$ MTB steel is very good

I got one for my wife a couple weeks ago. A little on the heavy side but solid and decent workmanship on the welds. I haven't built it up yet but I'll post something when it's done.

It will be her first road bike ever and for $103 it's not too bad. I was going to build it with a Kestrel carbon fork from my old bike (the fork has one month of use on it) and Shimano 105 components. I am looking at Supergo's Weyless stems, seatpost and handlebars and some reliable wheels.

Sounds like a cool project. Let me know how it turns out.

The Weyless components look good to me. Bought one of the forks and like it. The bars are fairly deep drop though so they might not be ideal for a small frame. While you're shopping Supergo, they also have some low buck headsets.

If you want a cheap set of low milage wheels please drop me a line. I've got some Wheelsmith built MA2/RX100 wheels with about 500 miles I'll sell you for cheap - $40. Sorry to pitch you here like this. It's just that projects like this are right up my alley. Actually, bought the wheels a few years ago for a project just like you are doing but never finished it - so the wheels are just sitting.

Good luck.
