    Nashbar Single Speed 29er Mountain Bike

    Just wanted to know if anyone has had any experiences on one of these Bikes?
    I couldn't find any reviews...

    http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/ProductDisplay?storeId=10053&langId=-1&catalogId=10052&productId=502354&cm_mmc=$%28referrer%29$-_-Bicycles-_-Nashbar-_-NB-SSMBD-19&CSE=GooglePS&mr:trackingCode=80CBFC0F-F9E1-DE11-974B-0019B9C043EB&mr:referralID=NA

    Thanks

    nice bike for the money, but heavy. I bought one of the old style (with clincher brakes instead of the disc) as a backup bike to ride after I got hit by a truck on my gary fisher rig.

    Good bike for the $ my friend rides one I like it. If I wasnt building a SS out of a never used Nashbar frame I had I would have got the new one with discs..... Buy it and you will have fun with it!

    I have one and I love it. The aluminum is however, quite rigid. I swapped out some parts and it's very light now by my standards.

    They have the frames on sale for $99 right now. I was thinking of getting one and just stashing it until I'm ready to build a 29er. I don't mind the aluminum so much.

    ooops....
    Make that Performance has the frames on sale right now.

    Open cam skewers without any chain tug on the drive side on track ends? Also your front brake cable/housing looks a bit long.

    It's the same exactthing as an 08 stout. Yes they can take a cassette and I think the latest ones on nashbar come with discs which I suppose is an upgrade from when I bought mine

    Going to call tomorrow and ask Nashbar to verify. Want to be sure. Not sure how I will dig the single speed thing and that is the reason I am probably not buying a 2010 Rockhopper SL SS(Brand new, I already saw/rode it) from this guy on Craigslist...he is selling for $500. It is a single speed for life...awesome bike and I am a Specialized guy. Just don't like the feeling of not having the option if I so choose.

    If they say it is 9spd compatibile I will orbably order one tomorrow....it is $350 and they are having an extra 15% of today and tomorrow. $336 to the front door. Been over and over this , the RHopper, and all the deals on Jenson and BDirect....ready to make a move on something.

    Any advice...?

    Dawes was my first choice. Not so much anymore. Not too confident in it with all the ?'s about allignment problems and such. Nice bike but for $16 more dollars....probably get the Nashbar and strip the paint if its hideous.

    My Nashbar just came in, 25min and i was on the road. It has mounts for changing it to a multi speed. The bike works great, disc breaks work with no issues (unlike the deadeye). Now i need to get into shape!

    the paint wasn't hideous at all but when the person you rise with has the exact same bike minus a few mods, you kinda want something different

    Opted out for the 2010 Rockhopper I was looking at. Better choice in the long run....$500. Can't beat it...the guy wants out of it. Either way...it will be a great second bike...! Pics later tonite....leaving in 15 min to go grab it.

    No offense Man but I can't see where a rockhopper is a better choice in the long run. I am not just saying this because I have this bike. Everything on a rochopper is entry level, right on par with this bike. This is a 2008 se racing stout frame painted a weird color. So what makes it better? The name?
    I see u have a pitch so that would make sense. Also good luck on ur first 29er I went from 26 ht to 26 Fs to 29er rigid and never road the others again

    Just sayin
