Nashbar Single-Speed 29er Mountain Bike
Gears? You don't need no stinkin' gears! There's no time like the present to join the single-speed party and the Nashbar Single-Speed 29er mountain bike will most assuredly provide your ticket to ride. Its 6061 aluminum frame is lighter than steel, impervious to weather, and provides plenty of strength to boot. The front end features a rigid chromoly fork that's also incredibly tough and delivers steel's famously smooth ride quality. Tektro Novela mechanical disc brakes handle the stopping detail with aplomb and are super-reliable no matter how sloppy the conditions get out in the woods. The bigger 29" hoops will have you rolling easy over obstacles while a set of WTB Nano Sport tires are a marvelous all-around choice -- super-speedy on hardpack but still plenty of reliable, predictable grip when you lean into turns. A 680mm wide aluminum bar means there's plenty of leverage when you have to get out of the saddle to muscle the 32x18 gear up a climb. A blast to ride, simple to maintain, and a guaranteed fun factory on every outing, you may never want to deal with shifters, derailleurs, and cassettes again.

    Have had for about a month. About two hundred miles. Great bike for flat areas. No gears, no issue for Coastal Carlolina. Bought two. Came in quick, three days and together in about an hour. I'm 5'6" bought a medium, very comfortable. If you are thinking about this bike, buy it. Great buy!

        Comments about Nashbar Single-Speed 29er Mountain Bike:

        Although I swapped out the stem, handlebar, grips, and tires during the assembly for fitment and other reasons, the ones that come with the bike are great quality. (I ended up using them on my son's bike.) I also added 10mm chain tugs, because I'm big and heavy, and my rear wheel always likes to creep. The bike is great... I did have to take it to my LBS to get the wheels trued and spoke tension checked (which you should always do, unless you are a bike mechanic and can do it yourself), and while they were going through it, they found the rear caliper mounts were so far off that they had to be milled to prevent one of the brake pad from rubbing. They usually charge $60 for this, but they did not charge me, so I believe this to be the case. Other than that, the bike is amazing. I ride almost everyday, either on paved trails or on singletrack when the weather and work schedule cooperate. The gearing is perfect for me, as I bought the bike to help me get back in better shape. I am 6'1", 215 lbs, 32 inch inseam, and I bought the large frame. I find the seat to be comfortable, even on my longest ride on it at 36 miles in 2.5 hrs. The gearing will limit you to about 12.5-13 mph in the flats, unless you like bouncing. If you are on the fence about purchasing this bike, I wouldn't hesitate at this price-point.

        Comments about Nashbar Single-Speed 29er Mountain Bike:

        the first ride I made on the bike was on a technically challenging single track that provided moderate to heavy elevation changes. It definitely handled the terrain well and provided a superb workout. The following day, I rode a less challenging mountain bike trail of rolling hills. It was a blast to ride on a simple and enjoyable single speed mountain bike. This bike is worth the price (and I caught it on an excellent sale). I would buy it again.

        It doesn't look like we put it together right?? The front wheel is almost touching the frame. Will have to take it to the bike store to have it sorted out. Very frustrating because it was a Christmas gift that couldn't be tried out:(

            Comments about Nashbar Single-Speed 29er Mountain Bike:

            I can build it while I ride it.

            This bicycle reminded me of my old 90's Mongoose (which I still have), but I really wanted a 29er with disc brakes. The single-speed option was chosen because I plan to add a Nexus three speed hub at some future time. Until then, the 18 tooth rear sprocket will be swapped out for a 14 tooth. Florida is flat.

            After the first ride I ordered some parts and dug into my stash. The three points of contact were immediately upgraded: Ergon GP1 grips, some Wellgo platform pedals, and my trusty Brooks B17 Imperial saddle. I also added some six inch riser bars for a more upright position. Like the Goose before, this bike will be the latest incarnation of that Stingray I rode all over the place back in the day. This is my go-anywhere curb-hoppin' dirt road flying beach cruisin' daydream machine.

            I also replaced the stem with a Ritchey 30 degree 60mm stubby stem.

            The low price of this bike encourages upgrades. But I see no reason it would not serve just fine out of the box. I was surprised at the relatively light weight and the Crucial (Nashbar house brand?) components seem, well, good enough. For now.

            I can build it while I ride it.

              I was looking for sturdy, but lightweight, wide tired equipment to use casually on private roads and sandy trails around here, near the coast. Any slopes and my hardtail or FSR Stumpjumper come into action, but this bike is a great complement to my range of offered equipment.

                  This is a great bike for the money, the only thing I can say that I don't think has been said is that the frame geometry IMO is made for a suspension fork. I haven't put one on, but at about 100mm of travel the geometry would be perfect.
