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.

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
