Mekk Pista T1 Track Bike. As no-nonsense and built for speed as bikes come, the Mekk Pista T1 track bike is a superb means to enter the world of velodrome cycling. The Pista T1 features a triple butted 6061 aluminum frame that's supremely stiff and light -- everything you want for rocketing around a track. And no matter if you're racing alone against the clock or amidst a mass-start event, the carbon fork with aero fork blades has all your handling needs dialed in as you slice through the air. The founders of Mekk have quite the track racing pedigree and as a result the Pista T1 sports true track racing geometry that demands to be pushed to the limit on the boards. The wheelset features 30mm deep aluminum rims while the fixed gear drivetrain comes equipped with a 48x15 gear with a track standard 1/8 chain set-up. True to its race-ready ethos, the Pista T1 also includes two extra chainrings - 49T and 50T - so you can dial in the perfect gear ratio depending on the demands of specific events and differing velodromes. There's also a no-nonsense aluminum cockpit plus a fine San Marco saddle to round out this exceptional build. Mekk is the brainchild of Mark Edwards (ME) and Ken Knight (KK) , a pair of Brits with extensive experience in high-performance cycling in both the racing and production realms. Their considerable experience with track racing is brought to life via the Pista T1.
Mongoose Argus Expert Fat Bike. Whether you're venturing through sand, snow, or dirt, the Mongoose Argus Expert fat bike is your ticket to fun and adventure on terrain not typically suited to its skinnier tire mountain bike brethren. The Argus Expert sports an aluminum hardtail frame that's paired with a Rock Shox Bluto suspension fork with 120mm of travel to smooth out the roughest of terrain. The 2x10-speed drivetrain is stacked with Shimano XT/SLX components to ensure shifting is precise and reliable while an FSA Comet crank features Mega Tooth 38/24T chainrings. Hayes Radar Comp hydraulic brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear ensure there's superb stopping power. And what puts the fat in fat bike are of course the tires and the Argus Expert rolls on 26x4.5 Kenda Juggernauts with a folding bead. And for optimal stiffness and handling the hubs are thru-axle front and rear.
Nashbar CX1 Cyclocross Bike. While the official cyclocross season takes place in a handful of winter months, we take a much larger view and consider each and every day the perfect time to take a 'cross bike out into the great outdoors. And when it comes to value, nothing's finer than our latest and greatest rig for those seeking to stretch every last dollar: the Nashbar CX1 cyclocross bike. At its core the CX1 sports a well-crafted, TIG-welded aluminum frame coupled with a 'cross rider's best friend up front -- a carbon fiber fork. For the frame, aluminum strikes the perfect balance between steel and carbon steeds. Aluminum is lighter than steel and is impervious to the corrosive effects of nasty weather. And while not quite as svelte as carbon fiber, aluminum is much easier on the wallet and can withstand an incredible amount of punishment. The carbon fiber fork, replete with a stout aluminum steerer tube, also keeps weight down but delivers quite the awesome ride quality no matter how challenging the terrain. Aesthetic-wise, too, the CX1 hits it out of the park as its black paint job with green accents flat out looks super-sharp. You'll thank your lucky stars that all the cables are run along the top tube as they're far as possible from the slime and grime kicked up onto the bike in muddy terrain and they're all externally routed for the ultimate ease of maintenance. And when you grab the down tube to shoulder your bike there's no cables to get in the way to boot. While some 'cross bikes take the super purist route and provide no water bottle cage braze-ons, we, on the other hand, believe differently. 'Cross bikes are the true all-arounders of the cycling world and we highly recommend adding a couple of cages and heading out for lengthy adventures in the woods. Component-wise, there's a slew of super-stout aluminum goodies that make this rig such a remarkable value. Shimano Sora 9-speed components are built to last and they're spec'd where they count the most as the shifter/brake levers, front and rear derailleurs, plus the 12-27 cassette. The aluminum crankset is plenty tough and sports 48/36T chainrings so you've got the gear ratios to handle any and all scenarios -- be it 'cross racing, hitting the trails, dirt/fire/gravel road exploration, or even rolling along on asphalt. Brake-wise we kept things simple and traditional with a set of Tektro cantilevers front and rear. Rounding out the build are a set of durable, alloy wheels shod with Kenda Kwicker 'cross tires that are born and bred to get down and dirty.
Nashbar 105 Cyclocross Bike. Train, travel, roam, race, ramble, and rock it with the Nashbar 105 Cyclocross bike in your cycling quiver. With an awesome aluminum frame, carbon fork, 11-speed Shimano 105 components and disc brakes hitting it on all cylinders, this ultra-versatile rig might end up being your go-to bike day in and day out. It's just that much fun to ride. Sure, carbon fiber may win the weight weenie wars, but a well-built aluminum frame is nearly as light, plenty stiff, built to last, and is much kinder on the wallet. The Nashbar 105 Cyclocross bike sports a custom-butted aluminum frame with a tapered 1 to 1 headtube. The carbon fiber fork, replete with a stout aluminum steerer tube, also keeps weight down but delivers quite the awesome ride quality and inspires confidence no matter how challenging the terrain. Shimano's superb 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 Cross crankset is a perfect complement to the Nashbar 105 Cyclocross bike's ethos as it's where fashion meets function, combining sleek styling with robust industrial design elements in a robust, aluminum package. All the cables are run along the top tube as they're far as possible from the slime and grime kicked up onto the bike in muddy terrain and they're all externally routed for the ultimate ease of maintenance. While some 'cross bikes take the super purist route and provide no water bottle cage braze-ons, we, on the other hand, believe differently. Slap on a couple of cages and head out for lengthy adventures wherever you heart desires. The days of squeaky cantilever brakes with somewhat dubious stopping power in sloppy conditions is a thing of the past as the Nashbar 105 Cyclocross bike is spec'd with a set of Promax Render R mechanical disc brakes. Once you try out disc brakes, no matter if it's wet or dry out, you'll be a convert for life. Weather won't be an issue for reliable, consistent stopping power and even in dry, pristine conditions you can carry more speed into corners and scrub speed later than you ever could with cantis. They're truly a game-changer. So you've got a sweet set of disc brakes...just wait and see what kind of rock star hoops this rig sports. There are truly no shortcuts here as a pair of Stan's NoTubes Iron Cross disc rims are laced to Q-Lite hubs to have you rolling in sleek style. Plenty strong to ride every day, they're also light enough to race. Note, however, that these wheels are only intended for cyclocross tires and are rated for a maximum pressure of 45psi. Another renowned brand handles the tire detail as this rig features Challenge Grifo tires front and rear. A true all-arounder, these 700x33 wonders are plenty plush to soak up the nastiest terrain and deliver oodles of grip and traction no matter if you're braking or accelerating. . So if you have a hankering for 'cross racing, hitting the trails, dirt/fire/gravel road exploration, or even rolling along on asphalt -- or if you're like us all of the above -- then the Nashbar 105 Cyclocross bike is the perfect means to just get out there and ride.
Nashbar Single-Speed Cyclocross Bike. Finally a single-speed version of one of Nashbar's cyclocross bike that will help you dish out generous servings of your chro-mo mojo to the competition. The Nashbar Single-Speed Cyclocross Bike has an abuse-proof chromoly frame and fork at its heart and soul. And while this steel beauty may pack more grams than its more svelte aluminum and carbon fiber brethren, what it truly inspires is confidence -- confidence in the handling, confidence in ride quality, and the confidence that when you hit the deck (and if you're doing 'cross right that fact is inevitable) your steel rig will still be in one piece and ready to rumble when you pick yourself up. The amount of punishment this frameset can withstand is simply astounding. While some 'cross bikes take the super purist route and provide no water bottle cage braze-ons, we, on the other hand, believe differently. 'Cross bikes are the true all-arounders of the cycling world and just because it may not be de rigueur for world-class racing steads to have their thoroughbred lines blighted with braze-ons this steel stallion is intended to be ridden, and ridden a lot, in non-racing environs. And you know what? You're going to get thirsty. So we highly recommend slapping a cage on and heading out for all kinds of adventure. Come race day, just take that cage off (if you even so desire) and you're good to go. Component-wise, feast your eyes on the slew of lightweight aluminum goodies that make this rig such an extraordinary value. Being a single-speed, though, there's not that much actually there -- these are the ultimate in simplicity after all -- but you'll find the aluminum crankset, and its 46T chainring, to be a super clean, reliable selection. The aluminum bars, stem and seatpost are all workman-like, too, in their utter reliability, simplicity, and durability. In the vein of simplicity and reliability, nothing beats a solid pair of cantilever brakes to modulate your speed and these Tektro gems will treat you right. There's ample clearance to keep your wheels spinning freely in slime and grime and there's no annoying mushiness at all when you pull the levers -- just crisp, firm action. Swapping out pads is a snap, too, with their cartridge holders. Alex alloy rims are nigh indestructible and the Kenda Small Block Eight 'cross tires are an awesome option for those with speed on the brain. Optimized for fast acceleration and hard-pack surfaces, they just rip it up when you apply power to the pedals as if you've got a small block V8 for legs. Have we mentioned what a versatile all-arounder the Nashbar Single-Speed Cyclocross Bike is? As is you've got the goods to duke it out for podium honors on the 'cross course or simply head off-road for adventure and hijinks. Not one to be pigeonholed, however, this bike also makes a head-turning city or commuter bike as well--just sticker it up, maybe swap out the knobs for fatty slicks, and start assaulting the urban scape. But no matter what you do, we guarantee there'll be a mile-wide smile on your face.
