Shimano’s been in the game for a long time. Founded in 1921 in Sakai, Japan, they started making bike gear long before most of us took off the training wheels. Over the years, Shimano has become a household name in the world of cycling, and it’s no question why. The quality, durability and overall incredible performance of their cycling gear have brought them to the forefront of the cycling industry, and their constant desire to push boundaries and reinvent has kept them there. Nashbar has been partnered with Shimano for years, and it's our great relationship with them that allows us to bring you the best deals on Shimano gear and components.
