Nashbar Bee's Knees Single-Speed 650B/27.5 Mountain Bike. The new 650b (27.5) mountain bikes are the next big thing and the Nashbar Bee's Knees Single Speed 650b mountain bike is a perfect example of why. The Bee's Knees Single Speed has the benefits of a 29er without the draw backs. Its bigger wheel size (27.5) means you can roll over stuff that would stop most 26 Mountain Bike's, but it is smaller and more nimble than a full-size 29er bike. It's a sweetly spec'd, super simple bike at a value you won't find anywhere else. But don't just take our word about the Bee's Knees, here's a nice review from Dirt Rag! The Bee's Knees is a simple, fully rigid singlespeed with working man's components that, while on the entry-level side, will likely last a while. Notably, the Alex XD-Lite rims, Kenda Nevegal 27.5 tires and FSA Hammer headset all took a beating and remain ready to handle more. Overall, this bike is a perfect starter for anyone who wants to jump into the 27.5 wheel category and is a great value at $500.
