I believe this is valid today only.

Men's mountain bike, frame sizes 17", 19", and 21" currently in stock.

MSRP is $500, although every time I glance this is usually in the $250-300 range. Even though there's free shipping on orders over $99, this does incur an "oversize" fee. For me, that was $20, leaving this still well below the usual price.

Nashbar AT1 29er Mountain Bike
If you're looking for a 29" mountain bike that won't break the bank, the Nashbar AT1 29er mountain bike should be your first choice. The steel hardtail 29er MTB frame is incredibly durable and has excellent trail feedback. The Shimano 7-speed drive train provides more than enough gears to give you plenty of speed on the flats and still power up the hills with ease. The 29" wheels allow you to roll over some pretty gnarly singletrack with ease. It's an incredibly affordable 29" mountain bike that's ready to rock as is, or perfectly ready for some upgrades if you're in the market for a project bike.

-Steel frame offers an excellent mix of durability, stiffness and trail feedback
-75mm fork of travel helps take the sting out of the trail
-29" wheels help you roll over obstacles with ease
-Shimano 7-speed drive train delivers dependable, precise shifting
-Alloy V-brakes offer powerful braking performance

I keep hearing you need this or that that more expensive bike in all the bike threads. When kids in the 70s we used to sometimes throw extended forks on a ten speeds or whatever else we could scrounge up and did plenty of trails, jumps and the abusive riding. Jesus some of the ramps we made it is a wonder someone wasn't killed. The bikes would last for a good while and could usually be maintained by swapping out parts when broken. No we weren't competitive mountain biking but the off the shelf bikes from low end retailers held up fairly well.

My point is I can't imagine that you really have to get close to the thousands to have some fun on a bike and imagine this will do quite well for most people. High end gear is nice if you need it but it seems everybody comes in along the line that you need Olympic class gear to get out and have some fun. It's $200 bike and I'd hope it would at least have the durability of the old mass produced junk we used to ride that had some surprising durability and cost way less. I don't doubt you get benefits and upgrades gear on a higher end bike but for someone that just wants to ride and maybe hit some moderate trails once in awhile this should do.

Consider what you want to do. If it is just ride a bike and not "take up cycling or become a cyclist" you will be good to go. Hobbies and outdoor activities don't have to become a lifestyle immediately or ever. If you enjoy and want to go further with a particular one then is the time to spend the money.

The problem I have is that when I spend all your resources on one activity you will have less for others. I kayak, I fish, I hike, I bike, I woodwork, I garden, I camp, I ski and have great fun and not any problems doing them with surprisingly cheap gear that works very well for me. In each community I hear the same talk, you need this $2500 saw, you need you need this $400 reel, you need this $500 Big Agnes tent, you need this $3800 Hobie kayak, you need this $1500 bike, you need this $800 pair of bindings. No I don't, I can figure out the cost value ratio of all the things I need and want to do.

I want to do many things and not commit so much to one that it limits the others. I guess if I had unlimited resources I might go a little to the higher end with some things, but putting me on a pair of Olympic class skis or bike is not going to bring any benefit and would just be a waste.

Some give good advice and guidance and it is is appreciated but many come in with a certain sense of snobbishness and disdain for anyone that dares not buy the higher end gear they think they need and it's slightly rude, and worse really no help to someone that just wants to ride a bike.

While it is still a low-end budget bike, I would consider it a few steps up from anything else you could buy near that price. Nashbar has good customer service to boot in case you need it.

"In stock: sold by Bike Nashbar."

Guess it would make a difference if you have Amazon GCs to use or something. Otherwise, you're just giving Nashbar less money if you buy from Amazon.

Exactly. More expensive than the YMMV Target / Walmart deals lately, but much better quality and much better service.

One of the reviews states that for a 6'1" guy with long legs can still work the 21" frame comfortably. Can anyone else substantiate that ? I am 5'11" and was interested in the 29" frame which isn't available. TIA

There is a difference between frame size and wheel size.
This bike, regardless of frame size, has 29" wheels/tires.
It comes in different sizes. Typically, frame size is measured from the middle of the bottom bracket to the middle of the top tube (although some manufacturers measure to the top of the seat tube). For most 5'11" people, a 19" would be fine.

TCB usually has good Nashbar %. 8% iirc?

Good deal. I have a slightly higher end Nashbar hybrid and it's fantastic, and well beyond what the money would get you elsewhere.
