Behold Nashbar’s latest road thoroughbred: the CR5. It’s ready for high performance riding – be it racing, fondos, or just spirited group rides – right out of the box with its stellar combination of full carbon fiber frame and fork, Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components, Shimano RS11 wheels, plus FSA bars, stem, brakes, and bottom bracket. The CR5 features a new and improved UD carbon fiber frame plus a full UD carbon fiber fork with tapered steerer tube. The frame’s sculpted tubing profiles coupled with a massive BB30 bottom bracket shell provide the perfect balance between incredible stiffness, light weight, as well as a smooth, responsive ride. All of the cables are internally routed for a super-clean aesthetic while the frame is also set up for Di2 electronic shifting if you ever want to make the leap from mechanical systems. And the sleek satin finish on both the frame and fork makes for quite the sharp visual statement. Component-wise, you’d be hard-pressed to find a finer choice gram for gram, dollar for dollar than Shimano’s superb Ultegra 6800 11-speed system. The CR5 features plenty of it: shift/brake levers, crankset, front derailleur, rear derailleur, and cassette. The shifting is just perfect while the compact 50/34T crankset ensures you can both tame any climb as well as contest rip roaring county line sprints. It’s definitely impressive just how well these components works as so much functionality, precision, and reliability has trickled down from big brother Dura-Ace that Ultegra is a tour de force in its own right. Shimano also cranks out remarkable wheels and the RS11s are a paragon of versatility. Their 24mm-deep aluminum rims strike a balance between aerodynamics and handling while stainless steel bladed spokes, 16 front and 20 rear, will slice through the wind with aplomb. And these wheels aren’t just for race day as they’re sturdy and reliable enough to put through the paces day-in and day-out. There’s no skimping regarding tires, too, as a se
The Endurance series combines the technology of Marin’s latest road racing bikes with specific frame and component features that minimize rider fatigue. The available T3 Carbon or A6 alloy Endurance frameset is the foundation of the formula with a geometry that offers greater stability and positions the rider with a slightly more upright position. Formed and arced seatstays provide vertical compliance while high profile chainstays deliver efficient energy transfer for climbing and hard pedaling efforts. Select component choices add in preserving rider energy like larger, 24c and 25c tires and size-specific handlebars that tailor fit riders of varying height. The combined effect delivers a bike with the perfect balance of performance and ride quality.
Diamondback advocates strongly for more riders on American roads, especially commuters, and its Haanjo bike line offers riders with a wide range of budgets the opportunity to get outside more. With dependable components and comfort-minded geometry, the Haanjo Complete Bike is a wallet-friendly way to log more miles on the bike and less in the car.Diamondback starts with a reliable 6061-T6 aluminum frame, which is a treated version of aluminum that provides an ideal blend of low weight and strength. A larger head tube angle than traditional road bikes allows you to stay more upright as you navigate bike lanes and traffic lights, and the endurance geometry hopes to create less tension in your neck and shoulders, especially as you ride to work with a full commuting backpack. Flat bar handlebars will keep the Haanjo feeling more stable than it would with road drop bars, and together with the Gravel Disc alloy fork, allow for smooth and consistent steering over a variety of road and off-road surfaces. Shimano’s 9-speed drivetrain and compact Tiagra cassette offer a wide range of gear ratios and promise straightforward, consistent functionality whether you’re commuting to work or heading out on a weekend bike path ride. The Haanjo is well-equipped to handle gravel and smooth dirt tracks in addition to rough roads with its aptly-named 40c Kenda Happy Medium tires, and for the days when the weather decides to wait until after your commute starts to turn nasty, you’ll have Avid disc brakes to provide reliable stopping power in a pinch.
