City streets beware the Novara Big Buzz bike! This curb-hopping, alley-surfing, ''no thanks, I'll ride'' street machine will turn the concrete jungle into one big playground.
The streets are dangerous, so we've built this nimble ride with two big front chainrings and fast 700c tires for just one reason: Speed!
And if you want to ride this hustler town-to-town, that's just fine—Big Buzz dishes out long rides with performance and comfort to spare
6061 aluminum frame combines mountain bike geometry with road bike tubing for a lightweight, heads-up ride that flies up and down city hills
Alloy straight blade fork with tapered legs takes the edge off of the roughest urban roads
Comes with Avid BB5 disc brakes because that's what it takes to decelerate from warp speed
Two forward chainrings and nine rear cogs create 18 speeds of versatility to conquer the steepest city hill and cruise country roads
SRAM X.7 Twister shifters sport a 1:1 actuation ratio and SRS technology for light, precise indexing; quick view indicator tells you where you are
Alex TD24 lightweight double-wall rims offer workhorse reliability
Puncture-resistant Vittoria Randonneur tires feature reflective sidewalls and a fast, smooth ride
Velo BUZZ saddle is ergonomically designed and padded for support and comfort over a long day's ride
Just get on and ride, no fancy shoes required—BMX-style platform pedals accommodate a variety of casual shoes
We let loose with a hand grinder on the frame to create a raw, industrial finish that makes each Big Buzz unique

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.
