by fromTough I have an older version of this with disc brakes but I just have to share how awesome novaras are. So the only downfall of this bike actually made me realize how awesome it is. It was hard to put on my Yakima trunk rack and it actually fell of the freeway going 80 mph!!! It survived the fall and I rode it in Park City that same day. The frame and components held up though it needs some adjusting from the fall:) All that was really hurt was the seat! Good frame. Sturdy. Durable.

by fromLove the Pika! I ride about 80 miles a week commuting with books, extra shoes and clothes. The Pika has the trunk rack mount and handles the weight of all my stuff well. I put my own cushy saddle on it (the one it came with is ok but not awesome). The plastic pedals started shedding pieces about ride #3, so you might want to get real pedals, which I had anyway. The shock adjustment on the front fork is great. Have done a little off-roading but not much so far - mainly paved path. I wish it had a second water bottle mount....but otherwise I can't think of anything 'wrong' with this bike!

by fromgreat beginner bike Good bike for commuting and occasional off road. The gears are easy to use, adjustments can be done without going to the shop. Feels light weight. Have no problems going uphill, overall handles well. Since biking everyday for a month, I'm still not decided on the saddle seat. Will probably replace it for a better one later on.

by fromSweet Bike I picked up this bike for my (almost) 12 year old daughter as an upgrade from her previous Novara bike which she outgrew. She absolutely loves it and is thrilled with all the gearing. We haven't done much with it as it is still quite cold. We're looking forward to warmer weather and some bike camping.

by fromTHE NOVARA PIKA BIKE 2014 I bought this bike about 20 days ago and I am very happy with it. A neighbor had this bike for about 15 days , I tried it and liked it right away. The Novara Pika is a great bike and in my opinion for both men and women...

by fromAwesome Bike This was the first new bike I've purchased in a while and I'm so happy about it! It's fairly lightweight, easy to ride, and handles well even on bumpy trails. I am a recreational/fitness cyclist and this bike works great for the mixed ground cycling that I do. I ride it around my potholed-street neighborhood, and also off road on pebbly or rocky trails. It's a great, versatile bike!
