Nashbar Alloy Mountain Frame
Your 26" blank canvass awaits courtesy of the Nashbar Alloy Mountain Frame. This svelte hardtail is constructed of 6061 aluminum -- the industry standard for quality in either mountain or road bike frames. The beauty of 6061 aluminum is that it's tough, light, and can be fashioned to give flex in all the right areas for superior control and riding comfort. The material strikes a nice, happy medium between carbon fiber and steel. The frame is designed for disc brakes only and is equipped to handle either a hydraulic or mechanical disc brake system. All of the cables are routed externally along the top tube for easy maintenance and to better protect them from mud and grime kicked up onto the downtube. This classic 26"-wheel frame is such a good deal that resistance is futile. Snap one up today and build it just the way you imagined.

NOTE: The frame's head tube is tapered with a 1-1/8" upper and 1-1/2" lower. A headset is included with the frame, however the lower race is a 1-1/2" to 1-1/8" reducer. If you opt to use the included headset your fork will need to have a non-tapered, 1-1/8" steerer tube.

Comments about Nashbar Alloy Mountain Frame:

It's a nice frame, especially for the money. The tapered headtube is a little awkward for a budget 26" frame, as there aren't many budget forks available with tapered steerers for this wheel size. Of course, a straight steerer fork can easily be adapted to fit a tapered headtube with the correct lower headset parts, so don't let that stop you. However, on that note, Nashbar tech support incorrectly stated that I would need a crown race adapter (made by Hope) to use the included headset with a straight steerer fork. In fact, the included headset came with a crown race for use *exclusively* on a straight steerer fork, so if you do have a tapered steerer, you will need to source your own crown race. Also, tech support was unable to suggest the appropriate fork axle-to-crown length to achieve the spec'd 71 degree head angle, incorrectly stating that head angle is independent of axle-to-crown length...in the modern era of "suspension corrected" frames and forks, this just isn't true, so in lieu of Nashbar publishing the full geometry specs, be prepared for a little trial and error when selecting or fitting a fork for this frame.

    Comments about Nashbar Alloy Mountain Frame:

    I have collected a bunch of spare parts over the years and decided to put another MTB together, I just needed a frame. The aluminum frame is beautiful and light (the gloss black finish is pretty and I would have preferred flat black but at just over $100, I'm not complaining too much, still a good deal). I'm always concerned about the quality of included headsets but the headset seems good quality and once greased, installation was a breeze with the Suntour Fork with remote lockout. Still waiting on a few minor parts to finish the project but so far very happy with the purchase.
