Nashbar FB-2 Flat Bar Road Bike

Fedex delivered my new Nashbar FB-2 today. I haven't bolted on my commuter gear yet, but here it is:



I also have some pictures of the assembly if you are interested.

Nice looking bike. Will be a sweet ride when you get all the extras attached. Make sure you raise the nose of the saddle a hair.

How much does it weigh? I've been wondering how heavy these Nashbar bikes are.

Yeah, I noticed the seat was forward, but only when I saw the picture myself. Odd.

The bike weighs just over 21 lbs

It feels extremely fast and nimble.

Edit: I guess I should specify that this weight is for the 54cm frame version with the pedals as pictured above.
