Nashbar AT29 29" Mountain Bike

It's so easy to catch 29er fever with the brand-new Nashbar AT29 29" Mountain Bike. Whether you're looking to hot dog it through the local trails, or catch up on your fitness, the AT29 is a machine engineered to be tough and designed to bring the fun.

First off, let's talk about the AT29's frame. Its 6061 Aluminum tubing is the industry standard for mountain bike and road bike quality -- the only way to go up is to carbon fiber, which is a lot more expensive. 6061 is tough, light, and can be fashioned to give flex in all the right areas for superior control and riding comfort. Working in tandem with the sweet frame is a Suntour XCT suspension fork with a lockout lever and 100mm of travel -- that means you can speed over all kinds of roots, rocks, and obstacles and your front end will soak it up with glee. And when you have to ride on asphalt to and from the trails the hydraulic lockout lever on the crown is a convenient means to turn the fork rigid in terrain when suspension isn't necessary.

The AT29 is also no joke when it comes to its component selection as there are plenty of industry leading brands throughout. Changing gears is a piece of cake on the 24-speed drivetrain with trusty Shimano derailleurs front and rear coupled with Shimano trigger shifters on the bars. The SR Suntour XCR SIX crankset features a tried-and-true 44/32/22t chainring selection and coupled with a wide-range 11-32t cassette on the rear wheel you've got the arrows in your quiver to not only scale the steepest of ascents without scorching your lungs and legs but also enough high end gearing to jump into warp drive on the way back down. And there's no worries when you need to drop out of hyper-drive as the Tektro Novella disc brakes are top notch when it comes to reliable stopping power in any conditions. The flip-flop aluminum stem and aluminum 680mm-wide riser bar ensure a perfect ergonomic fit and both are lightweight and dependable.

Alex alloy rims are top quality and their DC19 model laced to 32-hole alloy hubs with bombproof straight gauge spokes inspire confidence and trusty, predictable handling over any terrain. Kenda Klaw XT tires sport aggressive knobbies perfect for digging in, cornering, and cruising with ease while the knobbies' wide spacing means they shed mud like a champion.

        13th birthday gift for our son. After making comparisons to base model trek and specialized, gave son the optionns of base model big name brand or the fuji/A29 +100.00 deposit to his bank account if he went with the A29, he went with it and is very happy he did. ONLY THING WE HAD TO DO WAS GET FRONT WHEEL TRUED!! He loves this bike. I think an upgraded fork for Christmas and an upgraded seat and this will get him through college years.

        I use this bike as a trail bike.The trails that I ride on are consider intermediate to slightly advance.For the money this is a quality product.The biggest down side is the plastic pieces that hold the cables in place are inadequate;they don't work.The seat is also unforgiving but other than that this is a great bike to start out on if you want to try a 29er without draining your kids college fund.

        Comments about Nashbar AT29 29" Mountain Bike:

        Looked around for a replacement for my 23 yr old Mongoose Alta. Compared this to similar offerings from Diamond Back, Motobecane, GT, etc. Point for point, this bike holds its own against them all.

        Just took it for its first jaunt last weekend. SO much easier to move than on the 'Goose. Still some setup to finalize (seat rake, brakes, derailleurs), but there was very little to do right out of the box. Going to put a pair of Rubena CityHopppers on there as I will mainly tooling around town, but the stock tires weren't horrible on the road and loved the paths around the lake.

        Definitely looking forward to many more rides!

          Solid, easy to assemble, good frame/components for a great price. A couple considerations 1) if you are not an experienced builder then get it professionally tuned/assembled 2) I am about 240lbs so the spring fork is going to need to be replaced (but even $6-700 bikes still use this sun tour fork so that is an additional expense I would have on almost any entry level bike)

                  A Dear Friend sent me the funds for this most excellent mountain bike! Truth be told my former mountain bike started to have many issues. Taking my need to the LORD in prayer God hath graciously provide me with this wonder Nashbar brand AT29 Mountain Bike. This 29er is a real joy to ride folks. The gears shift well and having a larger wheel size I get more miles on the road compared to a bike with 26 inch wheels. The BEST part of this bike is that I get to reach ALOT of people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I hand out gospel tracts and open air preach. Thanks to this Nashbar AT29 Mountain Bike many souls are being reached for Jesus Christ! :-)

                    Awesome bike for the deal. Comparative to other bikes with same component setup and frame style that are hundreds of dollars more. Seems well built and easy to put together. As mentioned before by another person on this thread, the shock is not well suited for heavier riders. I weigh 210 lbs and with the shock adjusted to max preload I still compress it to 15% sitting on the seat. So probably well suited for someone under 200 lbs., give me some goals to shoot for :P. Took me a little longer to put together than my wifes AT2 (only an hour) due to one of the disk brake cables being put on wrong (simple to fix). Other than that everything was easy. On a side note, make sure to check all your connections and esp the crank are tightened down. Both bikes the crank bolts were not tight and needed to be tightened down before use. Besides that all the components and brakes were pretty much spot on with only very minor adjustments.
