Nashbar Fat Bike
If the worth of a bicycle can be measured by the smiles produced while riding, then the Nashbar Fat Bike is the undisputed world champion of revelry and glee. Mountain bikes have always been the go-anywhere steed of choice, but fat bikes ramp that ethos to new heights as their signature, oversized tires provide access to conditions (think snow, extreme mud, copious sand) once thought off limits. And fat bikes are perfectly fine to use on your tried-and-true trails, too, adding a new dimension to familiar routes.

The new and improved edition of the Nashbar Fat Bike now features an aluminum frame and an aluminum fork that helps lighten the load without any compromise regarding strength and durability. The tubing is sculpted and shaped plus provides incredible amounts of tire clearance to keep you rolling along in the nastiest of conditions. A stout, 26" aluminum wheelset features 75mm wide rims and 26x4.0 Duro Big D tires. And the beauty of 4"-wide tires is that you can run very low pressures (like in the 10psi realm) that equates to cornering like the kind from your dreams. With the added width and girth you'll also immediately feel more stable and that stability translates into trail confidence.

Speaking of confidence, the SRAM X5 components spec'd for the shifters and derailleurs provide worry-free, quick action gear changing all in a super tough, built-to-last aluminum construction. The drivetrain is 2x10-speed, with 36/22T chainrings and mated to an 11-36T cassette, which provides some seriously low climbing gears, a nice top end for descents, plus everything you need for all-around trail conditions. Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes deliver reliable, dependable stopping power in any and all conditions which is what riding a fat bike is all about.
  • Aluminum frame and fork are light, ultra-strong, and provide plenty of tire clearance
  • Huge 26x4.0 Duro Big D tires can run very low pressure and dig into everything - perfect for sandy, slippery, muddy, or snowy conditions
  • SRAM X5 shifters and derailleurs ensures smooth, reliable shifting
  • 2x10-speed drivetrain with 36/22T chainrings and 11-36T cassette provides a wide range of gears for all terrain
  • Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes ensure all-weather stopping power

    Comments about Nashbar Fat Bike:

    I use this bike mostly for riding country back roads. It has much better speed on the road than I expected. I love most aspects of the bike. I hadn't ridden a bike in 23 years, This was just what I needed to get excited about riding again. I have found that the seat needs to be upgraded, very uncomfortable. Also I will replace the hand grips,my 42 year old hands really ache after a ride.

        Comments about Nashbar Fat Bike:

        Fat bikes are great fun especially for people who may be new to mountain biking with limited experience with the 2.x" tire size full suspension or hard tail. Give said person a fat bike with 5/6 lb pressure in tires and watch their faces light up when they go over familiar trail obstacles.

        Enter the Nashbar Fatbike!!!!! Now you have a solid performer with solid components delivered to your door on sale for about $750 or so. I was about to purchase a Surly Wednesday or Motobecane Night Train Titanium when suddenly I had an epiphany ... I could buy 3 Nashbar Fatbikes for myself, my wife, and my father for the same price!

        And guess what? Because I did just that, WE are having 3 times the fun!

        Comments about Nashbar Fat Bike:

        I've been road biking for a number of years, and with living in Michigan, wanted to have some fun when the weather didn't permit being on the road. After a lot of consideration, I bought this guy with one of the 25% discounts and had money left over to upgrade a few components.

        Upgrading components is where I've had a problem. The stock tires weren't great and were pretty heavy, so I upgraded to Kendra Juggernaut Pro tires. Despite being 4.0 tires, the tire rubs on the left chain stay fork. I took it to my local bike shop to make sure that everything was true and mechanically sound, but after everything else checked out, they questioned where the knockout for the tire width was located compared to the tire size. I understand that there can be slight variations in size from brand to brand and model to model of tire...but I guess I would expect a bike frame to be designed to be able to handle a decent amount of variation. These tires are supposedly one of the lightest 4.0" tires on the market, and I doubt that was accomplished by adding a lot of width. So I guess, my word of caution and really the only negative about this bike, is that you have to be careful with what tires you pick up...when I contacted support, I was told that it was basically a game of trial and error.

        Perhaps this type of thing is common, but none of my friends with even more inexpensive bikes have had this type of issue.

        Comments about Nashbar Fat Bike:

        I've owned this bike since last fall and have driven it extensively over snow, gravel, singletrack and on the road. I am nearly surpassed 1000 miles total.

        The overall quality and build are very good and it has been a blast to drive. I have taken it through some extreme environments including swamps and snowstorms.

        I have had issues with the freehub mechanism. In the winter the freehub gummed up and would not engage, even when warmed. I figured that it must not be well sealed and salty water got in. Nashbar offered to replace it, but I wanted to keep riding. I tried to service the hub, the bearing came out easy enough but I could not get the freehub mechanism free. Nashbar did not have any service manuals for the hub. I ended up dripping in some solvent through the seals and then chased with lubricant and it has been working OK since.

        Another nagging issue is that the left crank arm keeps loosening. When loosened, there is lateral play in the whole crankset, resulting in dropped chains and drama on the singletrack. I have retightened the assembly no less than 4 times. The last time I used locktite on the shaft bolt and it still loosened after a few rides. If not kept it check the crankarm could fall clean off.

        The crankarm issue is keeping this from a 5 star review.

        So far seems fine for the price. Slight scratches on front rim from shipping. Box was bigger than necessary,. Too wide. Enjoyed it on a few short rides,. Should be good in the snow. Seems a bit smaller for a 21",. But I'm used to a 29er and this is my first Fat Bike.

              I'm a hardcore roadie who use to race... I bought this fat bike because I'm getting too old to run though the winter... I wanted cheap... so I got this... I love it... I'm learning all the things I never do on my road bikes... track stands... wheelies... it just a dumb fun bike... and I see a lot of Fat bike where I ride... they all have to tell me how much every thing costs... I run into the same thing with my 19 year old Cannondale road bike... people telling me how much they spend on their bikes as I pull away from them..... just have fun

              Comments about Nashbar Fat Bike:

              This bike is actually very nice overall and an outstanding value. Some parts are generic, but work, can be swapped if desired. Packing was great, assembly was easy, brakes and derailleurs perfect out of the box. Weight surprisingly low for a Fatbike; aluminum is great for a Fatbike. Works flawlessly. Rims are not tubeless compatible; would be nice if they were to save weight. The tires roll fast and good on hardpack dirt or light mud, but terrible in snow. They have low profile knobs. Am changing to different tires for winter and back to these for spring. I am very pleased with this purchase.

                it comes mostly assembled, but with no instructions for completing the assembly. I am reasonably experienced, but had to guess at the correct fork and handlebar installation. And I still don't know how to adjust this headset.

                FYI, it fits 4 inch tires, which is ideal for my commuting. For serious trail riding you likely want 4.8 inch.
