Good things come to those that wait. And if you’ve been putting off making the leap to carbon fiber as well as 11-speed drivetrains then your virtuous patience can be rewarded with the Nashbar Carbon 105 road bike. At its heart is a sweet monocoque carbon frame that rivals those of much more expensive brand name peers in stiffness, lightness, and ride quality. At the cockpit end is a tapered headtube and full carbon fork that inspires confidence courtesy of its rock solid and utterly predictable handling. The drivetrain is anchored at a massive BB86 bottom bracket that ensures not one iota of your strength will go to waste. With so much more surface area up for grabs to attach the down tube, seat tube and chainstays deflection from all those watts you’re producing is just not a worry. But don’t let all this talk about stiffness worry you about comfort, because the wonders of carbon are evident in the stays which are shaped to further reduce road vibration. Aesthetically, this bike just screams stealth speed. It sports Henry Ford’s favorite paint scheme – any color you like as long as it’s black – plus the internal cable routing keeps it super clean and clutter-free. Shimano’s new 105 groupset delivers a perfect 10 for value, craftsmanship, and performance as it makes the leap to 11-speed. You’ll be blown away by how well this stuff works as so much functionality, precision, and reliability has trickled down from big brothers Dura-Ace and Ultegra. The shifter/brake levers, front derailleur, rear derailleur, and cassette all fly the 105 11-speed flag and if these parts were logo-free you’d be hard pressed to distinguish their performance from its much higher-priced Shimano siblings. The FSA Gossamer compact crankset fits perfectly into the components mix. Its cold forged aluminum crank arms are racing stiff, and the precision CNC-machined 7075 chainrings are angled and pinned for flawless shifting. Shimano’s engineering excellence extends into the world of wheels as
Power. A 7-speed transmission gives you the power to climb hills, enjoy short trips and longer commutes. Dual purpose or What is ComCruiser? We nicknamed this bike the ComCruiser, because it lets you commute and cruise. It’s also great for going for a quick grocery run, for coffee, yoga, or cruising the beach. Fully Equipped. This comcruiser comes fully equipped standard. To keep your clothes clean on your ride, there are fenders, custom chainguard and a custom spoke-guard. For your utility, a rear rack with spring clip comes standard. Front and rear battery-powered lights increase visibility at night for your safety, and a gold bell will keep people on alert. Having all these features standard saves you shopping time, money and lets you start commuting the same day. Safety. The bell and the two lights mentioned above and reflective strips on balloon tires, all contribute to safer night riding. And of course, the caliper brakes provide for secure braking. Comfort. These are called comfort crusiers for a reason. Our high-tensile steel frame absorbs the road better, and along with the raised handlebar allows for upright seating which is easy on your back, wrists and neck. A custom vintage spring-loaded saddle and Schwalbe Fat Frank balloon tires allow for a cushioned ride. At 34 pounds, it’s also lighter than most fully-equipped Dutch Bikes. Finally, there is a kickstand for easy parking. Quality. The quality of our bikes can be seen in many elements including polished welding, 3-layer paint, Shimano gears and shifter, and Schwable Fat Frank balloon tires made with puncture proof Kevlar guard and reflective strip – the highest quality balloon tires available. Attention to Detail. You’ll love the attention to detail we put in the designer metal 3D headbadge, color matching grips and saddle with pouch hinges , and the Peace Bicycles logo engraved on saddle and bell.
The CLX 3.0 Ultegra Di2 Road Bike is an outstanding road bike from the much loved Colnago brand.

The monocoque front triangle has many new features such as internal routing of the rear brake cable, new different section C-HS1 headset system and a new fork made to work perfectly in combination with the new headset. Also, the square chainstays have been developed following the design outlook of the whole Colnago range, having a square shaped cross section to guarantee more stiffness for greater pedalling efficiency. The CLX 3.0 comes fitted with Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 components, including the chainset – compact, and provides clean and precise shifting. The compact chainset, with a wide range of sprockets on the cassette, gives you a larger choice of gears for speed and for climbing also. The wheels are also from Shimano and in the form of their RS range. Strong and fairly light, these wheels will keep you moving and the Vittoria Zaffiro tyres will provide you with the grip you require.
