    Nashbar xcd 6000

    Oh hello, new biker here. I am looking to buy an used road bike for school purpose. Not looking for anything fancy, and I stumbled upon a bike called the nashbar xcd 6000. It is from the late eighties. Other than that, I am not too sure what else. Does anyone know about this bike? I'd it worth 170? The condition is fine, nothing wrong as far as I can see. Thanks

    Welcome to the forum Jay way. The only xcd 6000 I'm familiar with is a late 80's Suntour mountain component group. I have the front and rear derailleur on my touring bike. Pictures would help for anyone familiar with the Nashbar frames of that era.

    Hi, thanks for the welcome. um the pic above is the nashbar. I heard that there were some imported bikes that was changed to nashbar that uses suntour. But I am not too knowledgeable. That is for sale 170. I don't have a lot of money, so I looked at this one as well(link below). Which is a better deal? Thanks all

    I'm thinking the nashbar is better. pretty sure of it. and those white centerpull brakes on it are cool.

    edit... yeah, the nashbar is sweet.. and they are u-brakes!

    Welcome aboard!

    The Nashbar does look better, better level of componentry, pretty useful gearing for SFO. The frame sizes are pretty different, though, "good deals" aren't always great if the bike doesn't fit. Do you know what size frame you need?

    i had a fixed gear that was a 54cm, which i thought was an ok fit. this picture is not the picture of the nashbar i am looking to buy, the one I am buying is that model but 53 cm, which i find is a way better fit.

    The Nashbar is a cool looking bike - I like the white components. Unless there is some hidden damage I would say it is well worth the $170.

    Looks like Nashbar simply named the bike after the component group; here is the MTB version.1987 Nashbar XCD 6000 Mountain Bike- 17.5"(Lugged Frame!)

    Ogni individuo tenta di farlo sarÓ fatto per mangiare un grande piatto di tre settimane vecchio polenta e generalmente essere preso in giro, soprattutto se Ŕ straniera.
