The Nashbar Single Speed 29er Mountain Bike is a simple, single speed mountain bike at a budget price. The Nashbar 29er has a solid 6061 aluminum tubular frame and a rigid Chromoly Steel Fork. If the rigid ride is too much for you, the bike can also accept suspension forks easily. Additionally, the bike can also mount a derailer — which allows you to turn this single speed into a geared bike (perhaps a 1×9) if you are so inclined.
The 29″ wheels give this mountain bike the clearance you need to roll over rocks and roots better than most bikes with 26″ wheels. The rims are Alex 29” DM18 with 14Ga stainless steel spokes, and the tires are WTB Nanoraptor 29” x 2.1”. The front hub is alloy with sealed bearings and the rear is an alloy cassette-ready hub with an 18 tooth cog (both front and back are bolt-on hubs). Both the front and rear wheels have 160 mm disc brake rotors mounted on them. The brakes themselves are Tektro Io mechanical disc brakes with Tektro 313A 2 finger alloy levers mounted on the handlebars.
The handlebar is a 2” alloy riser bar with a width of 25.5”. The Velo saddle is generic, but not too bad. The crankset is a Gravity Maximus 3-pc alloy with sealed Euro that has a ISIS spindle with 32 teeth chainring with clear polymer bashguard. The overall weight of this bike without the rider is around 29.93 lbs. Click Here for More Nashbar Single Speed 29er Mountain Bike Reviews or To See Prices.
