Blue Norcross SP frameset

These framesets were being sold pretty cheap online by Nashbar. I couldn't find much info and figured, for the price, it was worth a try.

Blue Norcross SP frameset in size XL (62cm)

Fork appears mostly carbon with aluminum fork ends. Has cantilever brake posts but lacks a brake bolt hole. It does not have fender eyelets. Steerer is tapered (1.5 inch to 1.125) and is carbon. Uncut fork weighs 519 grams.

Frame is aluminum and has significantly oversize down tube, configured to accept BB30 bottom bracket, top tube cable routing. Designed for cantilever brakes. Has fender mount hole near bottom bracket and brake bolt hole. Has two sets of fender eyelets near rear dropout. Weight of my size XL frame is 1930 grams with derailleur hanger and water bottle bolts.
