Deal Details

Last Edited by treyfer July 11, 2013 at 07:11 AM
Pretty rare to see a road bicycle with this level of component group for a price this low. A SRAM Rival group alone would run you pretty close to the cost of this whole bike. Shimano 105 pedals? Better bikes NEVER come with pedals. These alone are worth $70!

Only 48, 51, and 60 cm sizes left. The 51 should be good for someone as tall as 5'8" if you want a pretty racy riding position. The 60 is for really tall people. The 48 would be good for many women.

Famous Maker Road Bike with Rival

Nashbar is all about the hookup. It's just what we do; and there's no better example than the Famous Maker Road Bike with Rival. First of all, check the specs--we're talking no-kidding quality with a hydroformed 6061 T6 aluminum frame and carbon fork with Sram Rival Crankset, front and rear derailleurs, levers, and shifters...that alone makes the deal. But how about this: we sweeten it even more by finishing the bike out with excellent components all the way down to the ground...we've even included a pair of Shimano 105 pedals just so you know we're out of our minds.

6061-T6 hydroformed aluminum frame has the geometry and ride feel of a classic Italian racing machine--laterally stiff bottom bracket, 73 degree head tube and seat tube and tapered seat stays to soften the ride
SRAM Rival 10-speed drivetrain delivers smooth shifting and sheds weight off your bike
Alex ALX270 wheels are tough enough for rough roads and light enough for long rides
Carbon fiber fork is tapered to give you a stable and responsive ride, while smoothing out road vibrations to save your palms and forearms

From reading the reviews, most guys in the 5'8-5'10 range are saying that the small (51cm) fit them better than the 54cm. I guess the nashbar carbon frame runs a little large. I'm 5'3 and I ordered the xsmall (48cm).

Anybody else get their order cancelled today ?

EDIT - Looks like a screw up in their credit department got my order cancelled. After 30 min on the phone it's "fixed"

Newbie here. Looking at getting mountain bike shoes with this since I like to get off and walk around sometimes. However, it looks like the peddle/clip/cleat was made for road bike shoes and even if I were to use the clip on a mountain bike shoes, I'd still be tip toeing. Am I understanding this right?

You want the 2-bolt SPD style pedals and shoes (aka mountain bike pedals/shoes). Pedals like the Shimano 105 are SPD-SL style which is a 3 bolt. These are designed for road shoes and are the more awkward type for walking in as the cleats are not recessed.

Thanks...I didn't want to have to switch out pedals. I'll have to explore my options.

If you want something recessed in the shoe you will need to switch to mountain style 2 bolt pedals. Or go with a road setup And get some cleat covers.

Anyone have a screen shot of the CR3 bike lower than $1499? I talked to a rep and they will accept the price with a screen shot. I am still waiting for the 20% off coupon.
