    Does anyone out there recognize the make of this frame? It's super beefy and rides like a dream. The store I got it from had it listed as a trek which it sure don't look like to me! any help would be appreciated. Btw, there are no markings I can find on it. It may have been purchased at a now defunct website, savegasmoney17.com if that helps at all. Cheers:cheers2:

    Trek did make an aluminum frame like that. Their cruisers are all steel these days.
    Good lookin frame, regardless of make.
    Add a front brake if you plan on a lot of street riding.

    I'll be derned

    after an intense 5 minute googling session I suspect you're correct. It's a steel frame but after I found a pic to compare, it seems pretty obvious...

    and here's a pic showing my front brakes shoehorned inside my springer. Tight fit but a world of difference in safety. image.jpg

    No. I think you frame is aluminum. Google "Trek Clyde" and compare them.
    Alum cruiser frames were not uncommon in the early 2000s.

    Looks like you are correct wheelbender. As heavy as my whole set up is, I just assumed it was a steel frame. must be the weight from the rims and springer...lol. I'm glad to know what it started as anyhow. Thanks.
