      Comments about Nashbar Flat Bar Road Bike:

      Was looking for the most bike I could get in this price range. Wanted something to ride with the kids/use to workout but better than a box store. I found this bike online and glad I purchased.

      Would recommend to others.

      Only issue I noticed is the pedals are low to the ground so taking hard turns fast will cause the pedals to scrape the ground.

      Comments about Nashbar Flat Bar Road Bike:

      I really enjoy this bike, I'm 5'10" with 30" inseam, so short in the leg and long in the torso and the 21" frame fits me great and in my opinion is the correct size. Out of the box, only the brakes needed tuning/attention. I had hard shifts on the front derailleur but after a little cable stretch it settled down. Components that I found uncomfortable where the pedals (too small), seat (too hard), and grips (too chunky). Otherwise, its performs great as a basic bike for exercise and getting around town on streets and paths.

      • Great "path" Bike

      Comments about Nashbar Flat Bar Road Bike:

      I was looking for something to ride with the family, and perhaps a little casual travel. This fit the bill. Easy to assemble, easy to ride, easy to upgrade. I'm 5'11", and ordered the 21 inch frame. The 19" frame was probably the correct size. This is a good all around bicycle, better than big box store quality, lower price.

      I got this bike to ride around town. It's great, I can just grab a helmet and go. I replaced the very uncomfortable seat and put on a rack. It's nothing fancy, but a good ride and fabulous for the price.

      Bought this for my townie/local rail trails... enjoyed it so much I added rack and pedals and traveled to Cumberland Md. Great ride... I can see a few components will get upgraded as they wear, but a great performing bike overall. Assembly was about an hour, all is well, just ordered a 2nd for wife.

      Comments about Nashbar Flat Bar Road Bike:

      Despite a full page about pedal installation and numerous other pamphlets w/ unimportant documentation there are no printed assembly instructions. It took several customer service interactions before anyone would admit this. Just open the box and go straight to youtube.

      Comments about Nashbar Flat Bar Road Bike:

      Ok, no more changing shoes, shorts, shirt... I put it together, clamped the leg of my jeans, grabbed a helmet and went for a test ride...20 miles of smiles. I think I'm going to ride this to DC next spring... 500 miles from Akron. Upgrades will occur naturally, but this is a good solid value... commute, coffee, grocery runs, simple, inexpensive, "runabout"...

      I'm riding a few times a week for 30 min each ride. Replaced the seat and gears could be a little more smooth. Handlebar is comfortable. Bike is light and easy to assemble. Color is nice. Exactly what I was looking for and arrived quick. Will buy from nashbar again.
