Stalwart and nimble, the Marin Novato is one bike that won't let you down, understanding that dedicated city cyclists rely on their bikes like a trusted friend.
Novato's lightweight yet robust frameset is triple-butted for strength to handle the rigors of urban traffic
Fenders fore and aft preclude wet, muddy lines up your front and down your back
Alloy linear-pull brakes provide sure, responsive deceleration when the pitches run steep or traffic gets crazy
Narrow CST 26 in. tires climb, zip and dodge with ease; Kevlar® fabrication reduces the risk of flats
Truvativ 48/38/28 crankset and Shimano 8-speed, 11-32 cassette power you easily up and down San Francisco-style hills
Shimano shifters and derailleurs provide smooth, responsive shifting through all 24 speeds
Marin Sport saddle with integrated LED flasher ensures you are never without a bright rear light when the going gets busy, dark or rainy
Platform pedals with alloy cages enhance pedaling efficiency

After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
