Help Identify this CX/Gravel Frame (non-vintage)

A friend gave this frame to me and he thought it was a Nashbar Frame, but since he also received used it could not be confirmed.

Serial Number: GW12L00782
Steel Frame (~26.6mm seat post diameter)
Tapered headset 44mm on both ends
135mm rear spacing
Both V/Canti and Disc Mounts

Here's a Nashbar CX frame -- kinda/sorta similar, with the top- and down-tube gussets, top-tube cable stops, and rear brake cable guide. But I don't see the tapered headtube, and the seat tube/seat stay junction is different, so maybe yours is a more recent model?

That doesn't look like a steel frame to me, got a magnet?

I'm not sure what the benefit of identifying it is. It's not a valuable frame.

Magnet sticks, steel frame.

I just wanted to know if I build it and based on quality what other parts ($) belong on it.

Are you sure it's meant for 700c wheels? Maybe it's just the angle of the photo but the chainstays seem short and the brake bosses kinda low. Could it be an old-school 26-in mtb frame?

Not positive, but this might be it. The seatstays still look different, though. Discussion can be found here: https://www.mtbr.com/threads/cheap-f...ntent.1018242/

I double checked this morning, it is 700c.

I'd say only use whatever you can get for free. Ugh, that thing is crude looking.

Looks like the frame that Home Depot used to sell. Cycle Force or Cycle Pro was brand.
