    Anybody else reppin' NASHBAR FRAMES?!?

    I got a SS blue Nashbar bike 4 commutin' and mountain use.
    The thing pedals like a dream ; in downtown Boise or in the
    foot hills, it has a really straight chain line too .I just
    put on the 'Nashgaurd' and new saddle.Duct tape protects from
    handle bar-swing-around and leaning it up against stuff to lock it.
    The trek head badge was parted from another bike.

    Anyone else got Nashbar frame builds? Lets see em. Attachment 278209

    Simple but looks extremely elegant. It painfully reminds me the simplicity of single speeds.

    I bet that nashbar bangs.

    I'll build a cheap bike like that someday when I start getting more parts.

    O man that's just sweet.
    Bang for the buck is what I'm all about.
    That would be my new "around town" exercise bike in a heartbeat.

    I had an Access XCL hardtail built up, but the fork was too tall for the frame's geometry. I will likely build it up again as a SS. The frame is very nice, with unique tube shaping. The paint is crap, tho.

    Big fork

    I'm running a steel fork that will fit a 29er hoop, but v-brake tabs are for 26"!
    If I get dics I can run the 29er. Any way, the longer fork has increased stearing response, surprisingly. I think it's the 45+ rake?


    ANYBODY GOT NASHBAR FRAMES??????

    Doesn't anyone click the search button ever? The forums are full of nashbar steel frame builds, both the blue 4130 CrMo ones and the orange 853 ones.

    Excuse me, if you would, I was aiming for a nashbar-bike only thread, and yes while I have found some Nashbar bikes by 'clicking the search button' I would still like a congregation of them in one specific thread.

    Thank you very much, and again, excuse me if I'm coming off a little rude.

    It was parted from an old trek 400 road bike that my friend had run into a car on accident.
    Frame hardly buckled, but the fork and the front wheel actually stayed true. Only the top tube and down tube buckled.

    Cool bike. I've had my eye on the Nashbar frames for the last month or so, and I see the blue one's are selling for 50 clams right now.

    I smell a post Nazi.

    - If you don't post in the very specific assigned forum under the strict guidlines of the mountain bike reich, you will be banned.

    - If you post a subject that is in the same ballpark of a previously posted subject, we will come to your house and kill your cat.


    It's the freakin internet man, and we are mountain bikers. Not some boot camp. Learn the difference between rules and GUIDELINES!!!


    Oh, and sweet bike man.

    If looking for a steel frame and don't want to break the bank this is a great frame. It is lighter than I expected it to be. And has survived a run in with a car (driver failing to yield)
    BUT DON'T EXPECT THEM TO SEE YOU ALL THE TIME.
    Anyway very stong and gets me through the day, a good investment.
    50 clams is cheaper than what I paid 4.

    We also will nail a cow's tongue to your door if you crosspost the same new thread to multiple forums, instead of just replying in an existing thread on the subject (of which there are MANY specific Nashbar frame/build threads already).

I, and many other users on this site would rather help someone like me down the right path rather than getting their 'jollies' from picking on someone 'a little less knowledgable', or in your case moronic.

    In anycase I wish you, the BigBLowHARD, good day And GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!


    P.S. - This week was really the only time I got into the forums, so in a sense you could say I have little experience.

    Good ol' DeeEight - some things never change...

    I've got a beater/errand runner built up around a red NB frame. It's too small, but rides nice all the same.

    Getting mad at him completes that balance IMO.

    Good job!

    Nashbar had the frames down to $45, with 20% off

    It only took me a few new parts to put it together, as most of the "stuff" was taken off me and my Son's bikes over the years...I don't now if that's a good thing or a bad thing!

    I picked up a cheap crankset, front derailleur, seatpost, BB and some Kenda road-worthy tires to make it a Bike. It's for crusin' around the neighborhood, without having to wear out my knobbys. Total out-of pocket, about $100 (which includes the frame & shipping)

    Mines my primary do all bike, I ride it about 4 times a week and its been going strong since before the winter with no complaints. I even take it to the lift accessed places on occation when the big bike is being worked on and my 230lb body hasnt fazed it yet. It sure doesnt ride like a $50 frame!




    And transformed for winter riding (Full rigid Surly 1x1 fork and lighter XC wheels):
