This is a desperate plea, and probably a long shot.
A few months ago I bought one of these frames for my 700c road uni, and now I want one to build up a matching Muni. Problem is, UDC doesn’t sell them anymore, and Josh is not willing to part out the Nimbus II Muni’s.
Please, if anyone out there has one that they haven’t used yet, I’d be really interested in buying it. Even if anyone has one that’s been slightly used, I’d be interested if it isn’t beat up.
I’m really hoping that someone has one in a box somewhere and is willing to let it go.
If it’s new, I will pay retail for it.
UDC specs this frame on the Nimbus II 29er Muni, and if you’ve recently bought and think you could sell the frame and get a different one, I’d appreciate it.
Really, not a thing. I’d take the hub, but that would mean delacing the wheel, and the poor guy that got the rest of it would have a useless wheel set. If someone wanted to go in on one with me, I’d open the box, take out the frame, retape the box, and send it out (or vice-versa depending on who received said box).
I have that frame, and I’m not excessively attached to to. But it is moderately used, with some scratches, and I’d want something equivalent or better to replace it with, and for you to cover the costs of shipping back and forth. At the end of the day it might cost you a lot to get it.
Sam, could you send me some pics of the frame? Specifically any of the scratches. This frame will be a Muni frame, so it will get some dings in it.
UDC is offering free shipping through the end of March (SHIPMEFREE coupon), so depending on the condition of the frame, I’d pay the cost of the Drak frame (same cost as the blue illusion frame), and then your cost to ship me the blue frame.
Sorry, didn’t notice the pics in the thread before I PM’d you.
Your frame looks a bit ‘brighter’ than mine, but maybe that’s the lighting. Sorry, just want to make sure we’re on the same page when it comes to the color. Also, is that a square taper hub? Did you shim the bearings?
Okay folks, looks like we found a frame. Thanks William!
Thanks everyone for the ideas, suggestions, and offers. I desperately wanted matching frames (cause I’m weird like that), and thanks to the wonderful people on this forum, I have been able to track one of these beasts down.
