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.

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
