The 2017 Nashbar Flat Bar Disc Road Bike combines all the performance advantages of a road bike with the comfort and more upright position delivered by a mountain bike-style flat handlebar - all at a great price. Its TIG-welded aluminum frame and steel fork are durable, resilient, and offer a nice ride quality for trips around the neighborhood, around town along the bike path, or to your local park. A Shimano 3x8-speed drivetrain ensures efficient, precision gear changes while the wide range of gear ratios ensures you've got the gearing necessary to make quick work of hilly terrain. The Tektro mechanical disc brakes provide exceptional stopping power in all weather conditions and the plush 700x32 Kenda Kwest tires roll smooth and help soak up rougher roads.

Had the bike assembled at my local bike shop and it turned out much better than I anticipated. The gears shift smoothly and the aesthetics of the bike are pretty desirable, especially for the price! To my ultimate surprise this bike was the same weight as my friend's $700 specialized yet even faster! My only complaint is the seat is not very comfortable at all and is something I would plan on changing.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
