Great Budget Touring Frame
I built up the Prestige tubing frame with a Carbon fork, Rival group set and Shimano wheelset. The build was very easy since all the specs on the frame are standard and the head tube and bottom bracket came faced so no suprise issues there. I used the bike for a 3 day credit card tour using a bikepacking bags. Though the steel frame is a little on the heavy side (not really an issue when carrying an extra 20 lbs) the bike climbed fairly well and has a nice stable feel for longish days in the saddle. For the price it is one of the best frames around if steel is what your looking for.
