    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.
    This man is no ordinary man. This is Mr. F. G. Superman. To all appearances, he looks like any other law-abiding citizen. But Mr F. G. Superman has a secret identity...

    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.
