    Anyone have a Nashbar FB-2 yet?

    I was kind of bummed about missing out on the BD Fuji Absolute 1.0 deal (both 17's and 19's are sold out), but I just ran across this Nashbar FB-2:

    There was a nice review here last year on the FB-1:

    but so far I can't find anything on the FB-2 anywhere. Carbon fork, Shimano 105 like the Fuji and the price seems right.

    I guess the answer is no. Nashbar has another of their regular 20% off sales today and tomorrow so I pulled the trigger on a 54cm FB-2. $560 for that bike seems like a good deal to me given the components and assuming it matches the build quality of the FB-1. I'll report back on it when I get it next week.

    I'm assuming it's the exact same frame as the FB-1 with better components, so it looks like you did alright. Don't forget the pics!

    I looked at the specs and for the price, 105 component bike looks good. It had v brakes, not 105 brakes. It's probably comparable to bikes from Biked Direct. Let us know what you think of the bike. I'm curious how much it weighs. Looks like a good deal.
