We affectionately call it the Budget Buzz; Novara Buzz V is an urban commuter and campus cruiser that won't curb your cash flow.

  • Sturdy chromoly frame utilizes mountain bike geometry for a heads-up ride that cruises up and down city hills
  • Chromoly straight blade fork with tapered legs takes the edge off of the roughest urban roads
  • Tektro brakes with linear spring design confidently stop your bike when you need them to, especially important on busy streets and at intersections
  • SRAM 3.0 shift levers and rear derailleur can take a beating and keep on shifting mile after mile, smooth or rough terrain
  • Truvativ crank and bottom bracket deliver solid performance, whether you're grinding a steep hill or drafting a bus
  • Features puncture-resistant Kenda K-841 tires mounted on lightweight, double-wall Alex Ace 24 rims, for speed and durability
  • Allen bolt skewers help to prevent wheel theft while you are away from your Buzz
  • Kalloy ALU riser handlebar offers comfortable positioning and enhances your ability to stay on top of traffic changes
  • Velo BUZZ saddle provides padded support and comfort
  • Just get on and ride, no fancy shoes required—BMX-style platform pedals accommodate a variety of casual shoes

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.
