Nashbar Ultegra Road Bike

Nashbar has got the new aluminum series road bikes in for 2013 and they are looking lean, mean and ready to drop the competition--we're talking about the same material, technology, and components as the industry's top brands.

The Nashbar Ultegra Road Bike sports a T6-6061 custom-butted aluminum frame with a tapered 1 ½"- 1 ⅛" headtube. While carbon fiber may be the go-to choice these days for frame material, there's no reason to erase road cycling's lengthy love affair with metal as aluminum serves up an enviable combination of light weight, stiffness, durability, and ride quality at an eye-poppingly appealing price point. This frame sports super clean lines, immaculate welds, plus a nice touch in an internally-routed rear brake cable through the top tube. We pulled out all the stops with the fork as it's full carbon fiber through and through while its tapered steer tube delivers race-level steering and acceleration response.

There's a bevy of awesome components spec'd throughout this aluminum steed and nothing shines as brightly as the inclusion of Shimano Ultegra 6700 10-speed parts. They're spec'd where they count the most -- as the shifter/brake lever as well as the rear derailleur. Ultegra has benefitted greatly from the trickle-down effect of technology from Shimano's flagship Dura-Ace group and the shifting and brake modulation in the STI levers is downright exquisite. The Tiagra front derailleur does yeoman's work of moving the chain between the chainrings while the Ultegra 10-speed rear derailleur is the epitome of Mr. Reliable.

Shimano also produces remarkable wheels and the RS10s on board are a force to be reckoned with. Their 24mm-deep aluminum rims strike a balance between aerodynamics and handling while stainless steel bladed spokes, 16 front and 20 rear, will slice through the wind with glorious ease. These hoops may sound like they're more appropriate just for race day, but rest assured that they're sturdy and reliable enough to be put through the paces day-in and day-out. These wheels deserve some top notch rubber, too, and the Hutchinson Equinox 2 tires are a true all-around, all-weather performer with dual compound treads and a compliant, resilient casing.

Another component highlight is the Full Speed Ahead Gossamer compact crankset with a complementary Full Speed Ahead Mega XO bottom bracket. The compact 50/36T crankset ensures you've got gears low enough to scale the wickedest ascents around while still having enough top end to uncork a rip roaring county line sprint.

This Nashbar road bike is more than ready to get you into some Cat 4/5 racing, gran fondo riding, or to help you dominate the friendly weekend hammer-fest with your buddies. Just add pedals and enjoy the ride.

  • T6 6061 Aluminum Frame and full carbon fork are light, stiff, and race ready.
  • Shimano Ultegra shifter/levers and rear derailleur are engineered for performance, response, and low-maintenance
  • 2 x 10 drivetrain provides dynamic options for acceleration, climbing, or top-speed spinning
  • Alloy wheels, stem, bars, seatpost, and brakes perform at a high level and keep weight way down
