If so, will a standard, square road spindle fit?
Those look like they are for some sort of BMX thing, I dunno much about BMX.

Scroll down here for the truvativ adapter... that will let you use standard 68mm Shimano sealed bottom brackets.

Thanks. I didn't know that page existed, on Sheldon's site. That's exactly what I would need. I'll quit browsing the BMX stuff, now.

Thanks, guys.
building a complete bike from that will build up pretty fast. a mid-grade Ultegra compact parts kit is like $1200 or something, and you still need bars, stem, fork, seat post, seat, pedals, and wheels.

as far as that frame goes, its probably darn similar to any of the bigbrand alloy-main w/ carbon rear stays chinese built frames. the big question is, will the geometry suit you?

I'm with "pierce" on this one.

Are you swapping existing parts onto this?

Add a carbon fork to that frame and it starts looking like not that great a deal.

But yeah, probably made in the same plant as many other big name frames.

Edit: Geez, just found this in their offerings. Starting to look like a better deal. Hmmm.

That frame's decent but nothing special. Buy it. Ride it. Swap parts out in a few years.

frankly, you'd be better off with

which is probably the same frame.

Yes, I am. A buddy is giving me his thrashed-out road bike to cannibalize for parts. Early 2000's Ultegra gruppo, SPD-SL pedals, the cleats, the works. I think pretty much all I need are wheels & a frame/fork. And I am on an extreme budget, so this looks pretty sweet. I'm not such an elite rider that top-of-the-line is the only thing that'll do.

I have a very good condition Trek 2300 frame/fork, 1999, size 56, red, that I am planning to sell (including seatpost, stem, a couple handlebars, seat clamp, headset). If you happen to be interested, please let me know - I would let it go for $200 plus shipping. I havent had time to post up on the for sale pages yet, since I will be busy the next few days due to the holiday.

Sorry for the spam guys, I just want to give a ADV member a great deal. And, find a good home for this S&M BMX custom cruiser frame that I had built.

Thanks.

The frame he posted up has carbon stays; not the same frame.

I guess we'll have to find you some wheels.

From my LBS:
Mavic/Formula at $109
Mavic/Shimano Tiagra at $125
I run the SS version of these at $120
