Nashbar Steel Commuter Bike

Courtesy Nashbar.
The Nashbar Steel Commuter Bike is on liquidation sale at Nashbar and Amazon.com for $350.

I love the name of this bike because it matches the beautiful simplicity of the bike itself.   It's a clean, logo-free, all-chromoly bike with wide tires and an 8-speed Shimano nexus internal hub. It comes with a rear rack and fenders, although I would swap out the fenders for some that provide full coverage.
