    $9.99 frame with free k2 baseball cap

    Aluminum frame for $9.99, only available in 17 inch. Could make for a VERY budget build

    https://ediscountbike.com/pc-406-100...7-shimano.aspx

    Doesn't appear to be disc brake compatible, what do you expect though for $10.

    I think I'll jump on this deal just to get the cap.

    The link works fine for me.

    I ordered one of these last Tuesday, and it arrived Friday. $9.99 for frame, $6.99 for shipping, plus free cap. The decals are all stickers over the clearcoat, and come right off. The RD hanger has been drilled out and replaced with a helicoil. All I need now are parts.

    Spending too much? It's only $17 delivered. Someone who has enough spare parts could build up this frame for basically nothing. Ya, it is funky looking. Maybe I should reblabel the thread to "K2 baseball cap with free frame for $9.99"??

    I like the nashbar frame for $30 (now $50) better, but this is probably lighter FWIW. not a horrible looking frame though, found a pic of a complete "neptune" on the interwebs.

    DeeEight bought three of them a couple years back. The picture in the post above is of one of his.

    Well a least nobody is likely to steal it and that's what you want in a beater/commuter bike.

    Heck you might get more than $10 for it if you take it down to the local metal recycler.

    anyone want to guess why that link works for some and not others? I'd guess it has something to do with my security settings.

    Am I correct in the belief that the E-stay bike in blackhat's post is the frame in question? for $17, I'd like one of those (I actually like the design, reminds me of a couple E-stays that where popular when I was first getting into MTBing).

    I'd guess you're correct. it loads from a secure sever and they screwed something up on their certificate so it brings up a warning window in firefox on my mac. it looks like they're not available on the site now, just the auction.

    I either have, or have on order, every part I need to get mine running, except a saddle. My total out-of-pocket expenditure for the entire bike to date is $129.13. I decided to go SS to keep the costs down. A few of the parts are new, most are used. Some of the used parts I already had as take-offs from my other MTB, the others I either picked up cheap via eBay or another forum, or were given to me by my brother. It also helped getting a $100 gift card to Performance from my mother-in-law for Christmas. I've been very patient in my quest to build up a decent ride as cheaply as I possibly could.

    The parts list:
    Code:
    Frame              Top Image Neptune
    Fork               Tange Steel
    Headset            Cane Creek S2
    Stem               K2
    Handlebars         1" rise bars
    Grips              Oury
    Brake Levers       Avid Speed Dial 5
    Brakes - F         V-brake knockoffs
    Brakes - R         V-brake knockoffs
    Seatpost           Titec Knock Post
    Saddle    
    Seatpost Collar    Weyless Pro
    Bottom Bracket     Shimano BB-UN52
    Cranks             Shimano 600 Ultegra
    Crank Bolts        8mm Crank Bolts
    Chainring Bolts    Track/MX Bolts
    Chainring          Supergo 39T
    Chain              SRAM 8-speed
    Wheels             Shimano Deore LX hubs on Mavic 221 rims
    Tires              Panaracer Smoke/Dart
    Tubes              butyl presta tubes
    Brake cables       Cane Creek/Dia Compe
    SS Conversion Kit  Forte SS Conversion Kit
    Star nut           U.S.E. Ring-Go-Star
    Bar Ends           Profile Briefs
    When it's complete, I'll be sure to post pics and ride comments.

    this might be the wrong thread but.....

    Wouldn't this type of frame be good for a belt drive SS with the elevated stays? Just a thought. Would solve the whole frame break/spliced belt dilema. Just an observation

    They're not actually 17" frames btw. Ediscount measured frames BB center to toptube center (on the seattube - aka the way small diameter tubing bikes used to be measured up till the 80s). In reality they're 19" frames measured the now standard BB center to top of seattube way that pretty much ALL mountain bikes have been measured the past 20 years or so. The other reason they look familar to folks is that these are identical to the Rocky Mountain Cirrus frames from the early 90s. Its the same frame jigs/tubing diameters. Rocky used to get their Alloy frames made in Japan and well, whoever built them back then sold the production tooling to another brand in taiwan after Rocky stopped ordering japanese frames. The only difference is the rockies were made with japanese sourced 7005 Al and had a bare brushed metal finish. These are made with 6061 aluminium and have a painted finish.

    Anyways many of the frames ediscount had have badly threaded/stripped derailleur hangers and the last one (in red) I ordered had a crappy installed helicoil in it so I had to run a T-bolt to install the derailleur. Its currently built up as my dedicated winter bike. I'm tempted to try and get another one though if Ediscount still has some to use to strip the paint off of and polish it and slap some older Rocky decals onto.

    They still list them on ebay...

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=180190511171

    I won't personally bid higher than $20 anymore on them though as that's what I paid for the last one i got.

    The security certificate is screwed up but you can still click "Continue to site (not recomended)" and go there anyway. Not that it helped because it said it was sold out...

    Just an FYI

    Ediscountbike's rates were never "cheap". For canadians its gone up $3/frame since a couple years ago.

    At the time I bought mine, their ebay store had the frame for $9.99 plus $30.99 shipping. Since their ebay store is ediscountbike.com, I went to ediscountbike.com and looked for the frame there. On their website, not ebay, I found it for $9.99, plus $6.99 UPS ground shipping. Within days, they'd removed it from their site, and the only way to get it from them was through their ebay store with the higher shipping rate.

    I just got mine finished last night, and will be riding it tonight. I'll be getting pics of it over the weekend.
